March. The longest month of the year, except of course Feb, which is quite endless, despite it only has 28 days. Christmas decorations long since packed away and too early to burst out with all the glory of Spring.
What can we do to refresh our homes without any major commitments?
Of course, fresh flowers during March are a must to boost our spirits. Perhaps, a unique vase also will jump start this little revitalizing project? Here are a few that we think are exceptional. The price range spans from fun to serious.
Take a good hard look at your throw pillows. Honestly, new throw pillows can invigorate a room immensely. Be daring and add an oomp of color, try not to “match”. Surprise your sofa! The trendy hot new colors now are pastel blush, soft sky blue and coral. Just because they are traditional “Florida Colors” ,don’t turn your nose up. These yummy colors need to be anchored to work sophisticatedly with the strength of navy, charcoal or chocolate. One of our favorite poillows is Surya’s Greek Key Pillow. It is contemporarily traditional. This pillow loves just about every place you put it. It certainly doesn’t hurt that it is available in 8 fantastic colors.
Adding a throw to a living room, bedroom or having some to use outdoors when it is still chilly is not just decorative. It is so much more.
A throw to a guest is a thoughtful gracious gesture. Just fold it lengthwise and drape it across the end of the bed.Select one that looks cozy and accessible, so your guest will feel they can lay down and cover up for a little snooze, without disturbing the bedding. The Master Bedroom is the perfect place to use a lush faux fur throw in the cold winter months. Just drape it over the corner of the bed or sofa. So luxurious looking! Please your guest at a night time gathering by draping multiple throws over your outdoor furniture. Everyone will definitely have another glass of wine and snuggle in for a great party. The most popular spot for throws is your family room. Fold them lengthwise and drape it over the arm of a chair or sofa. Throws are also great ways to protect your furniture from pets or children when necessary.
Above all, don’t make any of your throws appear to be a vignette. They are there to be used! Please enjoy looking at some of our favorite throws.
