In With the New

Décor Trends for Spring

Time to throw open the shades and let the sun shine in. Breathe deep and smell the sweet scent that comes with a change of seasons. If you want to brighten your home this spring, here’s what’s new—trends that say big, bold and bling. Geometric patterns and bright, saturated color are all the rage in forms we haven’t seen before. Accessories, lamps, stools and area rugs are making a statement, and that statement is, 

“Here I am. Look at me!”
