Springtime Decor Updates: Accessorizing your Coffee Table

Winter is done and just in time. We were all feeling a bit dreary. With the warmer weather returning its time to think Spring and that means adding in some fresh new items from our favorite shops. 

Freshening up your decor is as easy as adding in some new pillows, changing out some art and popping in some decorative nick knacks. Today we're focusing on small updates by adding in spring accents and design to your coffee table. It's amazing what some fresh florals and plants, books and candles can do to add some joie de vivre.

Here's what we are loving.

Laural Home is a talented group that have taken Lisa's beautiful, garden-inspired art and transformed it into an amazing bedding collection.

Each item is custom made and digitally printed which means they can develop top-quality bedding for a great price in a fraction of the time.

We are thrilled with the bedding collection they have developed. The colors are vibrant and crisp and truly capture the essence of Lisa's work. 

QUESTION: Why do you think the Rainbow Seeds collection is so popular?

This collection is a fresh take on spring colors. It's an attractive, appealing multi-color scheme. The collection subtly incorporates market trends like watercolors, gold foil, tie-dye, and bohemian prints all the while representing classic patterns done in vibrant colors. The patterns themselves are so detailed and beautifully painted that a customer is getting a piece of art.  It can appeal to a younger AND sophisticated customer. 


QUESTION: What has been your design teams reaction to the collection?

All the patterns and colors are so fun to work with. There's tons of ways to mix and match these patterns to create entirely different looks in bedding.  The collection has a romantic spring feel. 


QUESTION: Each piece is made to order ... how do you do that?

A proprietary technique - we can't share that! 

QUESTION:  What's your design teams favorite books to snuggle down and read in bed with?

  • Kathy- Starting the epic journey of the Harry Potter series
  • Tori - Anything by author Gillian Flynn

Lessons in Love

It's February - the month of love, romance and chocolate - not necessarily in that order. 

We love any holiday that inspires updates in home decor and Valentine's Day doesn't disappoint. From candles and pillows to dishes, art and more, it's easy to bring the look of love into the home. Contrary to what my husband thinks, Valentine's decor doesn't have to be all pink and red and perfect (though that doesn't hurt!) It does have to speak to your thoughts on love - whatever those are.

Plaid to See You

Want something warm and cozy to warm up to this winter ... choose accessories in perfect plaid patterns. What else did you think we meant?

This look isn't just for fashion though there is something amazing about a good plaid shirt, jeans and cute boots for a Fall afternoon. We're seeing this look on lamps, blankets, bedding and more. One thing is for sure, we're all mad for plaid.

Amber Glass

Maybe it's because it is Fall ... or maybe because I am nostalgic, but I am really loving amber glass right now. 

Amber glass was a big hit in the 1950s and 1960s. I still love the amber glass cake stand my Grandmother passed down to my mother. Every birthday, whether she makes a cake, or buys a cake, it goes on that cake stand. To be honest, if it didn't, I would be devastated. 

Today amber glass is making a comeback. We're seeing it as inspiration for wedding and Thanksgiving tables everywhere. The warm, inviting color is the perfect way to update a table for Fall or your living room.

Decorating with Pumpkins

The only thing better than crisper nights, caramel lattes and a new sweater collection every Fall is decorating with pumpkins.

We're loving all the amazing and artistic creations bloggers are sharing with the world. From painted and gilded to unexpected designs, there is something amazing for every mantle and doorway!
