Spring has sprung — officially! I am normally late to change out my closet but with the recent bout of beautiful and dare I say, steamy weather (thinking a cold snap may still happen), I think I’ll be on time changing out my wardrobe this weekend. Similarly I may be changing out my “walldrobe” with new Slipcovers for my walls. I’m deciding what and in which colors I want to use. There are sooooo many choices with Casart coverings.
This got me thinking about all the bright colors abounding, flowers and cherry blossoms that unfortunately, will probably not last after this stormy weekend. Just like this ritualistic, seasonal clothing exchange, we look for ways to change our interior space to coincide with the seasons we see changing around us. It’s a way to give a fresh start, celebrate spring and life in general.
We resonate with those who also welcome in the change. Would you rather go to a cold mountain getaway and use a fireplace to stay warm while bundling up under blankets in a dark wood log cabin this spring break or would you rather go here, The Saguaro in Palm Springs?
Wow, I love these pops fun colors proudly displayed on their exterior building. This is a new hotel offering on Jetsetter, which just takes me away with their pictures. Actually, we have enjoyed traveling with them too.
All the shelter magazines have lightened up as well. Just look at Mary Douglas Drysdale’s fresh take on using a bright green in a classical interior paired with Maryanne Pollack’s fun blue and green painting in this month’s Traditional Home. Her design not only is a perfect blend between modern and traditional but is uplifting with its bright, unusual color – something new for spring time.
Besides all of the 10 different Mary Douglas Drysdale’s Signature Colors for Casart coverings, you may want to consider other Casart offerings when changing your “walldrobe” like 35 subtle or bold colored stripes and marine theme patterns from the Karen Robertson Collection.
Let me suggest some decorative Wallfinish colors that transition nicely into spring: Blue Lapis Colorwash, Green Faux Padded Harlequin, and Rose Faux Linen, all seen below, but there are a lot more to choose from and you can always Customize your own color if you don’t like these:
You may want to think about bringing in the beach with seashells on stair risers, as trompe l’oeil door panels or even patterns on walls and other surfaces, like behind bookshelves or furniture fronts. Small changes make just as big an impact sometimes as a complete conversion.
And finally, how could I not end with butterflies. I’m so pleased to see them everywhere now and maybe even soon for my own walldrobe.
