Update your space for spring

From SheKnows Canada
It might not be spring for another six weeks, but we're already excited about what's in store when it comes to home décor ideas for a whole new season. We’re sharing some fun, fresh ways to spice up your space for spring.

Radiant orchid

Pantone’s colour of the year is the perfect hue for spring. It’s fresh, it’s lively, and it adds a stylish pop of colour to any room in the house without dialing up the brightness too much. We suggest using this eye-catching shade as an accent to breathe new life into your space. Think strategically placed throws, pillows, vases, candles and even art.

Mega metallic

If you haven’t yet thought about adding some metallic pieces to your home, make this spring the season to do it. They add elegance and sophistication and are much more versatile than you might think. From copper to rose gold to silver, feel free to mix and match or simply add one or two pieces to create an understated, timeless look.

Bold geometric patterns

Geometrics have been going strong for a few seasons when it comes to home décor, and they won’t be going anywhere come spring. From pillows to accent furniture, get-noticed patterns can be found on a wide array of home accessories. Larger geometric pieces can be used as a room’s focal point, and smaller pieces can make a more subtle statement.

Spring-ready pastels

Pastels never go out of style when it comes to spring. They offer an easy way to add colour as the seasons change and help us transition out of winter without going too bold too quickly. This season, look for pastels on everything from wallpaper to carpeting, right down to smaller accents like task lamps and decorative touches.

A splash of white

Crisp, classic white is the perfect way to start the season off on a clean, stylish note. Not only is white a timeless hue, it goes with absolutely anything in any combination of colours, and it always creates a streamlined look. Break up mostly-white rooms with darker accents and use white accents to give darker spaces a boost of brightness.
