With spring on the horizon, it’s undoubtedly true that we’re all longing for sunnier days ahead. Now is the time of year to begin dreaming up a seasonal refresh, so we tapped into some of our favorite home experts regarding the one interior decor item they suggest buying ahead of time to bring happiness to your home.
“I think florals and Spring go hand in hand, as flowers represent new life and new beginnings,” says Lauren Meichtry of Elsie Home. “If I were to buy one interior item for spring it would be the new Ruth pillow by Elsie Home.” She shares with us, “The delicate floral print was hand block printed by an artisan family in a remote village in India. I love that it not only symbolizes new life in the spring, but it also shows what beauty can be created when people all work together and share their talents.”
“I am all about re-accessorizing and re-styling in the spring so I love a great piece of art to freshen things up,” explains Kate of Kate Lester Interiors. “One of my current faves is the ‘Abstract Face Lines‘ print from Kate Lester Home. It’s great on its own, layered on a console table, or in a gallery wall for a little depth and texture.”
Tiffany of Tiffany Leigh Design directs her focus to comfort. “If I could purchase one interior design item for spring it would be new linen bedding!,” says the designer. “Coming out of our winter hibernation with lots of movie nights in bed, it’s time for a fresh change in linens. I love our organic cotton bedding from If Only Home, but in the warmer weather, I crave lightweight, breathable linen to keep us cool at night.”
“Linen feels casual and inviting, and an extra bonus is that linen looks great when it’s wrinkled, so it means making the bed is a breeze,” she points out. “Because our warm weather window is so small in Ontario, I’d much rather spend my time outside than worrying about steaming any wrinkles out of bedding!”
“As spring approaches, there is nothing quite like boosting your mood with a playful wallpaper,” shares designer, Stefani Stein. “Even in a small space such as a powder room or a breakfast nook, a delicate floral wallpaper with modern elements can create a huge impact for the season. I’m fond of a tonal approach, so it doesn’t overpower the space, like Anthurium Waltz Wallpaper in Bonaire by August Abode.”
“Spring is such a cheerful season, with the sun breaking through the clouds and fresh blooms in the garden,” she remarks. “Bringing the outdoors in, with a statement vase or cheeky centerpiece adds a touch of fun to your table. I’m fond of incorporating branchy greenery that has a bit more longevity than florals.”
