Spring spirit in interior design
[:en]Why not go for honesty? We associate spring with the idea of color, sun and revival. It is true; however, it is only half-true. Most of the time there is still some snow to melt as well as there are still some branches that refuse to come into leaf. So let’s be honest, spring is beautiful, but it still lacks the lavish green and constant warmth of summer. It is halfway there and why not display it as such in interior design as well? It will be less romantic, but definitely more realistic.
Use grey and silver
Nuances of grey will help introduce the natural shadows of spring into your home, while silver will recall the memory of the cold days which are not yet completely gone.
Introduce natural elements
Bare branches sited next to glass objects will reflect the earnest tensions of spring. A game of light and dark that suggests the potential of an approaching balance, such a display will enhance the simple elegance of minimalist spaces.
Clear up the space
Transparent and reflecting surfaces will help open the space suggesting the desire to become more oriented towards outside. De-clutter all spaces as much as possible to create the sensation of a fresh and airy interior.
Bring some sunshine inside
Use elements which suggest the warmth of sunny days. A yellow cushion, a pastel table sitting, warm draperies and some spring green paintings could easily make this happen.
Add some vitality
Although with spring you are not there yet, this season still is one more powerfully loaded with the significance of revival that winter. So, to pay your dues, you cannot avoid giving it at least some credit. One thing you could do is place natural delicate flowers next to the previously carefully arranged bare surfaces.
Change, the only constant
If the space allows it you could even consider the possibility to use water and stone, two materials which are destined to suggest that change is the only constant. And which season could be better fitted for suggesting this idea if not spring.
