Spring’s a time for change! It’s a new season and colorful new life is around us. Invite spring’s fresh and delicate colors into your home and refresh your living room and bedroom with some great looking, yet inexpensive, design tips from Connell’s Furniture & Mattresses.

  • Lighten Up! Kick that boring old dark-colored sofa, loveseat or recliner to the curb and invigorate your room with lighter, mid-toned colors. Decorate with the colors you see naturally occurring in nature, such as magenta, marigold, aqua blue, spring green, teal and even try hot pink!
  • Add accessories! Pillows and throws are a fantastic way to introduce some lighter colored fabrics into your room. Add patterned pillows with calm and tranquil colors to a solid-colored sofa to add bursts of flair. Or toss a patterned throw on the back of a chair, sectional or futon to bring your room to life. Hang colorful wall art and illuminating mirrors for some seasonal springtime style.
  • Paint! Rejuvenate a dreary dining room or lackluster bedroom by repainting the walls with some colorful paint. Designers agree this is a cost-saving solution since a couple of gallons of paint are very inexpensive, plus you can do it yourself. Try a color you’ve always been curious about – and if you hate it, just paint over it. Some suggestions: test out light and clean colors, like kiwi green, pale violet or coral blue.
  • Flowers! Indoor plants and fresh flowers will bring colorful life to any room. Try to be consistent with your floral arrangements. Choose a color scheme, use the same type of flower and place your floral arrangement in a pretty glass holder. Top it off with a little lace or a satin ribbon tied around your beautiful bouquet.
  • De-clutter! Clutter is distracting. No matter how beautiful your room is, unsightly piles of magazines, movies and media will ruin your spring decorating. Put entertainment in its place with media chests and hutches and stash your work away in filing cabinets, desks, and credenzas for your home office.
