  • Contemporary orange. Fresh, orange tulips and other blooms, as well as the warmer sunsets, plays a huge role in welcoming Spring. You can bring this vibrant and contemporary hue to your home, in moderation of course. You can accent your home with this bright hue, such as painting an alcove, accenting your furniture with orange details, or even just painting a single wall to make a colorful pop within your space. Orange can add a spark of Spring to your humble abode.

  • Cheerful yellow. Perhaps one of the most anticipated elements of Spring is the warm rays that will fill the air. That happy ball of yellow will brighten our skies more often, and bring a cozy warmth to the world around us. You can bring this cheerful hue to your own home to give it an uplifting ambiance. For your citrus hues, take caution with the stronger yellows, limiting how much you use it. This strong yellow can easily overwhelm your home. You can bring yellow to your furniture with a few key pieces. However, most of your furniture should remain neutral colors, such as grey, so as to not overpower your home with Spring cheer. Bold patterns serve as lovely accents and off-white or stone shades will help balance out the prominent yellow hues. Yellow is a wonderful way to add joy to your home.

  • Fresh green. After being coated in snow and ice, the ground is finally allowing the beautiful greenery to shine through. Seeing the green grass is a reassuring sign that the snow and ice are melting and won’t be returning for a while. As the freezing Winter disappears, we start to keep an eye out for sprouts of green which show that beautiful blooms are right around the corner. Bringing this green to your home can help you rid your home of the Winter blues. Refreshing green tones upon your walls, mixed with rustic styled furniture and décor creates an incredible, refreshing Spring setting. For a little more pizzazz, you can add prints and patterns, as well as textured or natural floor coverings. Your home will feel renewed with Spring energy.

There are many ways to welcome Spring colors into your home. These colors are sure to help you feel new life that Spring brings, before you even step outside. Here at White Oak Interiors, we want to help you showcase your vision throughout your home. If you are ready to brighten up your living space with interior design, be sure to contact us today.
