Five easy ways to add a touch of spring .to your home decor The arrival of spring has long been celebrated by people of every faith and from every corner of the globe as a time to say farewell to th'e cold and gray of winter and to welcome the return of warmth and color and the beginnings of now life. While spring is breathing new life into the outdoors, it's also a perfect time to add a little season- al oomph to your indoor environ- ment. Here is an assortment of tips for brightening your homein cele- bration of spring. Change is in the air. Spring is a perfect time to bring the outdoors in. Spring flowers, arranged either in one large bunch or in several mini-bouquets placed in nooks throughout the house are not only a visual treat, but emit refreshing springtime scents. Biighten up. Adding seasonal touches to your home can be as easy as painting a piece of furni- ture, a single wall or the trim in the sunniest room in your florae. The best colors for spring are light, clean, refreshing, and natural as opposed to either pale pastels or deep, color-drenched hues. Consider paint colors inspired by . nature, such as shamrock, violet, slate and goldenrod. Lighten up. It's hard to imagine that spring has sprung in a room decked out in velv& .or other heavy fabrics. Warm days and spring breezes call otit for sheer or lightweight curtaifis, slipcovers in natural soli'd-colored or floral fab- rics, and decorative pillows that bring splashes of color into the room. It's not necessary to replace all of the fabrics in a room to usher in a new season. Sometimes sim- ply changing out pillows and removing warm winter throwg is enough. Floor it. Don't forget to give your floors a spring facelift as well. Substitute lighter cotton, sisal, jute or seagrass rugs in natu- ral shades for the heavy wool rugs that feel so right when the weather turns cold." (Spring and summer are also perfect times to have wool rugs cleaned and/or repaired•) Re-view. Shifting tile arrange- ment of the furniture and decora- tive pieces in a i'oom can have a major impact orl its look and feel. During the cold winter months, it may be comforting to be nestled in a chair that faces a fireplace• But once the' weather warms up and the flowers begin to bloom, the best view in the house might well " be out the window. Invite spring " into your home with a' furniture. arrangement that is oriented toward a window or other source of natural light. Then sit down and enjoy the view.
