Spring decorating in this century avoids the sole use of saccharin sweet pastels often associated with the traditional Easter decor of decades past. Today’s modern spring palettes include fresh mixtures of classic hues and bold color. Here’s a peek at five spaces pulled from the archives to illustrate how to approach spring decorating in contemporary ways.
Coral is a cross between pink and orange and is fetching when paired with complementary teal blue. Inject a dash of lime green for an invigorating combination sure to cheer any space.
Refined plum balances the pastel lavender and pale celadon hues often associated with spring, together they make a chic bedroom space.
Yellow brings thoughts of daffodils and sunshine so it’s the perfect accent for a spring inspired room – pull in mellow gray and energetic tangerine for an invigorating place to begin your day.
Mocha is an earthy neutral and the perfect anchor to lighthearted blush and berry pinks. Dark wood balances the feminine hues on display in this contemporary dining space.
Shades of blue and purple are analogous on the color wheel – temper neighboring hues of vivid orchid and bright turquoise with a soft gray blue for a balanced approach.
