Inspiration to take on your spring updates with a heap of creativity...and close to zero of the expected pastels we're used to seeing this season.
In a foyer by Miles Redd, a botanical print rendered in rich earth tones (and paired with even more of them!) lends a springtime feel.
Try it at home: Display a floral-themed piece of art, or framed wallpaper, in similar tones.
For a table by Jackie and Rebecca De Ravenel, a palette of crisp blue and white paired with colorless glassware makes for a perfect scene on warmer days.
Try it at home: Set your table (indoors or out) with a blue-and-white tablecloth and use classic glassware.
In a kitchen by Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller, two bright primary colors come together for a vivacious pairing, made all the more spring-ready by the natural textures of the baskets.
Try it at home: Rearrange your bookshelves and bring in personal objects, or simply bookends, in these two bright hues.
For a table set by Michael Devine, a rustic wood table sets a relaxed backdrop for an array of spring-themed patterns: bright yellow dots, blue butterflies and striped bows, even the chinoiserie takes on a winsome feel when surrounded by the other prints.
Try it at home: Refresh your bed with new pillows and sheets in an array of patterns, then add wood pieces (perhaps a jewelry box?) to your nightstand.
In a bathroom by Carrie Hayden, two glamorous textures meet in a refreshing way, thanks to the neutral color palette...and the absence of pastels keeps it from feeling overly feminine.
Try it at home: On your dresser, bring in jewelry trays and cups for make-up brushes in white marble. A simple mirror propped against the wall will play well against it.
For a table set by Madeline Weinrib, black and white linens look elegant and seasonally-appropriate against the organic shades of green set by the olives, limes, and stems of the paperwhites.
Try it at home: Collect green things from your garden and market, and set them on display in the kitchen in black and white bowls.
In a dining area by Lindsey Coral Harper, shades of (bright!) yellow pair well with white and gray for a look that's fresh and inviting, yet still completely chic.
Try it at home: Choose a white surface (bedside or coffee table will work) and add sunshine-hued accessories and gray accents.
In a kitchen by Allison Caccoma, white cabinetry and marble countertops pop against the bright hues of the florals. Turquoise, pink, purple...they all come together for a lively look.
Try it at home: Make or purchase an arrangement of blooms of every bright color in the rainbow (or at least your local flower shop.) As for the vase? Keep it simple and white.
