The renowned American poet, E.E. Cummings compares Spring to a hand that arranges nature while the world looks on. Spring’s smiling and colourful symbols of renewal, rejuvenation, fertility and new beginnings paint a happy picture throughout nature and these symbols can be welcomed into our decor spaces through art and other elements.
“Spring is like a perhaps hand
(which comes carefully
out of Nowhere) arranging
a window,into which people look (while
arranging and changing placing
carefully there a strange
thing and a known thing here) and
changing everything carefully”
From "Spring is like a perhaps hand" by E. E. Cummings
Pops of Colour
Transition from the blues of colder months to the pops of colours that begin to blossom with Spring. Hues can shine through the space with quick-fixes like the easy introduction of art that creates a lovely backdrop to the room and ties other decor elements together. A pastel palette ensures a bounty of colours without being overbearing and lets the pops of colour stand out, creating a bold yet muted look. While exuding warmth and happiness, abstract art adds movement to the space and stays true to a more contemporary decor aesthetic.
Ubiquitous with the advent of Spring, flowers bloom as the joyous faces of nature and are a classic decor staple. Pairing floral-themed art with actual flowers doubles their impact and creates a visual delight that veers towards the dramatic. Art collages are a great way to increase the impact and give a buffet of appealing options to choose from - colourful, muted and grayscale. While floral accents are ornate and even dainty, juxtaposing them with monochromatic, geometric patterns in other decor elements gives an additional dimension to the interior design.
The many colours of Spring ensures that everyone's tastes and preferences in colour can be accommodated. Moving away from the more feminine rose and blush hues, the aforementioned decor space lets one colour do all the talking. A healthy dose of sunshine yellow helps lift the space from its more sombre dark blue and white elements towards a brighter decor. The placement of the large artwork gives depth to the space. The white and gray colours give the room some breathing space, breaking up the domination of saturated colours, while it's scattered yellow patterns continue with the statement colour’s rhythm in the room.
Spring emerges from the cold and gloom, breaking up the skies with brilliant sunshine and carpeting the Earth with lush greenery and flowers. This decor space inspired by Spring integrates the airy and colourful characters of the season with on-trend jewel tones and green coloured furniture pieces with clean white walls. These walls are adorned by animal and nature- themed art that brings a smile to the face with its light-hearted portraits of a giraffe and panda along with other sunny pieces. Putting together decor elements keeping this breezy spirit in mind can help create a happy, spring-inspired space without making any major changes to the decor and leaving you with more time to enjoy the season.
