Decor Tricks Better Than Spring Cleaning (Promise!)

Apr 26 2014 - 4:09am

It's time to embrace everything Spring has to offer. First line of business? Decor. Since we can't all pack up the sweaters quite yet (sorry, New York!) we sat down with Krissy Tiglias — Domino [1]'s new digital director — for ways to bring the season into our homes instead. Whether it's rethinking a room with a simpler layout or finally taking risks with paint [2], there's no reason your space can't have a fresh start. Check out all of Krissy's tips below (number three is a must if you're on a budget!).

Add Color

There are so many rules around decorating with color. I believe that if you can strike a balance, it will reinvent a space with richness and depth. If you have white walls, consider wallpaper [5] on just one wall to make a statement. Prefer paint? Choose a favorite shade for the ceiling, the front door, or the back of a bookcase.

Rethink Your Space

Get rid of clutter and rearrange the furniture; the simpler the layout, the more spacious the room. Not every sofa needs a sidekick (aka coffee table). Let other pieces of furniture step up when needed.

Make Swaps

Not everything needs to cost a lot of money to look different. Be creative with your approach; swap out photos in picture frames, toss a brightly colored pillow on the sofa, change a lampshade, or add a runner by the backdoor.

Look Outside

You've finally made it outdoors! Take advantage of the vibrant colors that the season has to offer and bring them inside. A tight arrangement of your favorite buds [12] (tulips, peonies, garden roses) or a bowl of fresh fruit can brighten up a tablescape.

Let There Be Light

Give the drapes a rest. Filter sunshine into your space by hanging a lightweight pair of sheers (they come in more colors than just white) or roman shades in a bright, punchy color.

Pull Up a Seat

Warm weather screams entertaining and gathering with friends — inside and out. A glorious evening is every reason to invite some friends over, so be ready for that last-minute, gotta-have-it get-together. Prepare with affordable and space-saving seating options [17] such as stools, folding chairs, and poufs.
