Pops of color

Using bright splashes of color is a popular decorating trend year-round, but it becomes even more fun when spring colors are at your fingertips. Bowls of bright, fake fruit and vases of artificial spring flowers can be placed in key locations for exciting flashes of color. Or, if you’re willing to shell out a little extra cash for a real spring feel, consider getting decorative lamps, curtains and mirrors in bold hues. Baby blues and pastel greens are sure to be trendy this season, so consider starting there and see where your decorating creativity takes you!

Throw pillows

Decorative pillows are always fun to play around with when redecorating. This season, banish the drabness of winter by covering your couches/sofas with slipcovers and beds in colorful pastels. Spice things up with glittery cushions and pops of embroidery. Don’t be afraid to consider floral or fruity prints — they are sure to brighten up all your living spaces.

Don’t be afraid of color.  Yes, white makes a room look bigger, but so does dark brown glossy paint (etc.) when paired with the right color furnishings.
Color can open up your space so go ahead and experiment with color (not to worry, if you don’t like it just repaint it)!   Like to change things up on a regular basis?   Go with a neutral color fabric on your sofa, paint the sofa wall with a pop of color and the other walls in neutral.  Add and an area rug with your colors and pull the whole room together with throw pillows in one or two colors from your rug.  Add some art work to the neutral walls and a few accessories in one or two colors from the area rug and watch the room come alive and pop.  When you’re ready to change again just add a slipcover and change out the throw pillows and accessories and you’ll have a whole new look.
