466630131Spring is almost here! The days are gradually getting longer, and the temperature is slowly getting warmer. As winter fades and the sunlight begins to increasingly stream through our windows, we feel the desire to freshen up our living areas. Although we love dark, warm colors in the winter, when the weather begins to warm, our spirits lift and we’re ready for lighter, brighter colors and casual fabrics.

It’s easy to bring spring style into your home with just a few simple changes. At Connell’s Furniture & Mattresses in Newark and Mt. Vernon, we’re ready to guide you through the enjoyable process.

The key is to simplify. Remove excess clutter and accessories from shelves and counter tops. Open up your floor plan by taking that seldom used chair and putting it in the basement for the spring.

 

Substitute dark, heavy accessories, such as mahogany photo frames or brass clocks with accents in lighter woods or finishes. Pewter and silver surfaces are trendy and versatile.

Update that dark, traditional lamp by giving it a new look with a light linen shade. Or better yet, go for a totally new lamp with a natural wood base.

Switch out those brocade accent pillows with fresh pillows in an airy cotton fabric in an open floral or seersucker stripe.

If it’s time for a new sofa or accent tables, look for simple frames with light or white wood trim. Avoid fabric with extensive tailoring or accent fringe.

Just a few simple changes will create a relaxed, casual mood and evoke that vacation mindset we all love. At Connell’s Furniture & Mattresses we have a wide variety of fabrics and finishes to craft your spring home.
