We’re fairly certain we speak for everyone when we say spring can’t come soon enough. Who isn’t ready to throw open the doors and breathe in the fresh air？ But even if we haven’t yet seen winter’s last frost， we can fake it indoors. Here are our favorite ways to decorate with springtime color in anticipation of the new season.personalized pillow cases
Give your room a quickie makeover with an infusion of fresh color. Decorate with various shades of a single color to really pull the look together. Selecting a range of materials， from a ceramic pot to a high/low rugcustomized gifts for men， in the same hue adds dimension and texture. Here， slipcovers in a bright white twill provide the perfect canvas for layering with color.
Art inspires. Express the promise of the new season with an oversized abstract or framed botanicals. Just be sure to look for a springtime palette that features your favorite colors —； and you’ll feel instant cheer every time you walk into the room.
Invite the very essence of spring inside with faux botanicals that capture the beauty of the budding season. Fill a vase with a single branch or mix with other flowers for a statement piece blooming with seasonal color.
Create a restful sanctuary with the cool colors of spring. Strip away the heavy layers of winter： start with crisp sheets and a lightweight quilt in a garden of pale florals. Sprinkle the color throughout the room to coordinate your look.
Dark velvet drapes in winter make a space more warm and cozy. Store them away and lighten up with linen panels in a pretty pale color. You’ll love the instant lift. Linen moves effortlessly and filters light while providing more privacy than sheers.
Welcome spring with a bang. A burst of bright color —； we are in love with coral right now —； in a mix of energetic patterns will make any room come alive. There’s no need to shy away from prints. Here， wide stripes， chevron and Ikat get along famously. And our flatwoven dhurrie will feel great underfoot on warmer days.

Several years ago a friend of mine (Mary Newton, one of the co-founders of OESD), made a pillow very similar to this one. The pillow is constructed from two placemats sewn back to back and stuffed with polyester fiberfill. The new OESD Sterling Monogram design collection #010 is PERFECT for this. There are two styles of lettering, and each style has two sizes. I used the largest size for the letter “L” and then added the “ove” with lettering from BERNINA Embroidery Software 6.
