Brighten Your Home with a Touch of Spring-Like Decor

Spring time is the perfect excuse to refresh your home decor and make your house feel like new inside, especially after a long winter of being cooped up indoors.  Although you may want to focus on a single bedroom, there are marvelous ways to add a spring-like touch throughout your entire home!

What you’ll need are uplifting new colors and decor that’ll add a fresh touch. Here are a few tips on incorporating spring hues into your home this season:

  • Traditional spring colors translate well to many rooms, and they work especially well in spaces that get lots of natural sunlight.
  • Pair a pretty pastel with a solid color to keep rooms from looking like it was taken over by the Easter bunny. A soft blue along with a neutral is a great example of how to tone down a spring color in the home.
  • Don’t forget the spring green! This season is all about getting back outside and enjoying nature, and we all know that green is the most natural color there is. Be sure to infuse it throughout your home for an organic touch.
  • If bright spring colors are not your style, you can still add spring cheer with more muted tones like cream or beige instead of outright yellow.

Of course, we’ve got plenty of spring inspired decor items right here for you at Paul Michael Co.! What do you think about these?

Decor That Goes from the Wedding Sanctuary to Your Personal Sanctuary

Many people dream of a spring wedding, and it’s the most common time of year that couples choose to get married for plenty of good reasons, the biggest of which is that the weather is always great, allowing for outdoor ceremonies and receptions that wouldn’t have been comfortable for guests even a month before.

Using decor at your reception that you can later use in your home is a great and functional way to go about choosing your decor. It’ll save you money in the long run as well! Paul Michael Company did just that recently at a wedding very close to us –  Paul’s youngest daughter just got married! So of course, we incorporated lots of goodies from PMC that will fit in fantastically inside the newlyweds’ home now that the ceremony is over.

Infusing Southwestern Design Style into Your Home

When it comes to designing and decorating at home, there’s always so much talk about modern, contemporary, traditional and the like. But what if none of those design styles tickles your fancy? What if you’re looking for something a bit more… rugged?

Let’s take a deeper look at what’s known as Southwestern design style. Here’s a few features that it often includes:

  • Vibrant colors that produce old Western look and feel… deep Earth tones are very predominant
  • A healthy blend of both old and new elements
  • An overall sense of a particular time and place… there’s no mistaking when you’re in the midst of a room decked out with Southwestern style
  • Homage to what’s natural: deserts, mountains, sunsets, parks, animal hides and longhorn skulls
  • A hint of cowboy/cowgirl flair with boots, hats, lassos and the like
