Decorate Your Home in Spring’s Fun Colors and Trends
We’ve got easy tips to turn your home into a haven with these season’s hot colors and trends.
-Brittany Roshelle Davis
I have a confession to make: My walls are bare. Butt naked bare. My husband and I recently moved into a new place and I refuse to give my old decorations another home to roost in. It’s time for a change; it’s time for something new! But I confess…I have no idea where to start. That’s why I’ve enlisted the help of Phil Tracey, a home décor guru and HomeGoods spokesperson to give me the 411 on the hottest tips and spring decorating trends for 2012.
Your Bedroom Facelift
When you’re redecorating your bedroom, Phi Tracey stresses that you want, “bedding and decorative pillows with pops of color or nature inspired patterns and prints- think whimsy!” He also adds, “Footboard stools or benches are very popular as well.” And don’t forget that your bedroom should be your haven. Phil suggests, “Bedrooms are a place to relax and rest, so if you have the room, put in a comfortable chair to read in.”

According to Phil, “Bold colors are back and they are happily married to bright colors. Bright yellows, blues and orange (tangerine) – are very popular as well as pops of red in all variations.” He also states that you should let your creative soul shine by adding, “decorative accessories such as owls, French inspired pillows, or animal prints which are still popular.”
