flower power!

Finally! Spring is here to stay, the grass is green and the first flowers are blooming. This is the time of year that I wait impatiently for. Not only to enjoy the outdoors, but also to refresh my home and bring some of that colour inside as well. I firmly believe in changing up the feel of a space with the seasons. Hey, we change our clothes for the seasons, why not our homes? It's easy to switch accessories like pillows, throw rugs, place settings, curtains and bed linens. Oh, and bring on the flowers!

Flowers are uplifting and bring instant happiness to your home. Luckily, floral patterns are trendy again. But it can be difficult to manage floral patterns without making your room look busy (or stuck in the 80's). Keep the pattern large, and pair it with neutrals, stripes or plaids. And make sure to repeat the pattern in order to maintain balance in the space.
