Color Trend: Pale Pink Spring Decor

Pink Decor

Spring is just around the corner, and with it comes the desire to inject a fresh feeling into existing home decor. One way to do exactly that is to add an unexpected accent color that’s light and cheerful–just like spring itself! This year, the hue that’s making waves is a soft and playful shade of pink.

Light Pink

The great thing about pink is that a little goes a long way. Just one pink piece can make a big impact, making it a very budget-friendly pick! Try a throw pillow in dusty rose, a traditional Oriental carpet with pink undertones, or a striped rug in multiple variations of pink. And if you’re nervous about making a commitment to the color, pick up a bouquet of pink tulips to try pink on for size!

Winter White Interiors

White might seem like the furthest color from your mind when it comes to winter decor, especially if there’s snow on the ground outside your windows. However, it has to be one of my favorite looks. Maybe it’s the clean slate appearance that comes to mind in the new year, or maybe it really is a desire to mimic nature. Here are a few tips for achieving this fresh and clean look.

Mixed Textures. Not only do different textures — like the wood, paper, and laminate look above — add dimension to a palette that could easily feel flat, they all add an element of coziness.

Lots of Light. Plenty of white in your home is already going to make it feel larger and lighter than before. But by throwing open all of the window shades (curtains, drapes, what have you) you’re going to add to the illusion of a big ‘ol space that’s oh so inviting on the coldest of days.

Black’s Best Friend. The combination is tried and true, so if all white isn’t your thing, don’t fret — just add some black (or grey, or tan, or whatever). The thing about a mostly white palette is that any hue you add to the mix in moderation is going to pop like WHOA.

Don’t Forget the Floor. Not only will a throw rugs keep your tootsies warm this winter, it will also add tons of that texture we talked about. Feel free to layer a few on top of one another for a super chic luxe look.

Sherpa Chic | Fashion & Home Decor

I sit here writing this from sunny, warm California… not to gloat or anything, but winter feels quite far away for me. However, I know better. I’ve braved many a bitter cold January. Being an eternal optimist, my best advice is to look forward to changing up in your wardrobe and your home during this chilly period. Embrace the cozy comfort of layers including chunky knits, thick wool, and luxurious sherpa. But worry not, you don’t have to look like Nanook of the north when donning sherpa. Instead, opt for a chic, sophisticated look full of rich neutrals and gorgeous embellishments. Instead of overt prints, go for texture that reads like a print. For example, an oversized rib knit reads as a tonal stripe.

When it comes to your home though, I don’t recommend straying from pattern! Instead, keep your color palette neutral and restrained. Then, layer together rugs that feel related, but different… sort of like cousins! I also recommend adding a cozy chair to your living room or bedroom area with a gorgeous dec pillow. Speaking of pillows, how great is this Surya kilim pillow?? I’ll take 2, please. This neutral look sets the mood for a cozy space where you can sip cocoa and indulge in a good book, all while avoiding all the snow outdoors. Really, this is only way to survive winter as far as I’m concerned!

Cool + Tropical in the Home

It’s cold outside, it’s dreary, and you’re all too aware of it. So what’s there to be done? Brightening up your space and making it feel more alive, of course!

Embrace Linens. Few things feel more tropical and airy than linens in the bedroom. Since it’s winter, go ahead and layer them on — sheets, blanket, duvet — the works. Bonus points for using cool colors you’d find at home in the Caribbean.

Plants, Many Plants. What’s the one thing you see everywhere in tropics? Exactly. Scatters pots of big, small, and every size in between throughout your space for a fresh and alive feel that’s especially welcome when not much outside is thriving.

Eclectic Trends

Add Cool Colors. The tropics feel so luxurious and refreshing thanks in part to all of the soothing hues that surround the area. Greens and blues are relaxing on the eyes and psyche, so add an accent wall here or a new chair there and embrace it.

Better Homes & Gardens

Let the Light In. Throw open the curtains and open the shades! Winter light, though sometimes rare, is some of the brightest. Without foliage to block any of its rays the sun can add so much mood to your home. Not only does it create the illusion of warmth, it also elevates your mood tenfold!

Tropical Rugs

Organic Patterns. Add some organic feel in the form a floor rug that can easily be swapped out when the mood (or next season) strikes. Go with those cool blues and greens we talked about, or something darker and more dramatic for some flair.
