Spring Updating

As soon as the days begin to get warmer, you realize it is time to spruce up the house for spring! One of the most popular trends for 2016 is – nautical.  The great thing about this style is you can take it as simple or as over the top as your decorating style may be, and it can be used in pretty much any room in the house.

The basic premise of a nautical style is simple.  Clean colors – white, beiges, and navy are the three predominant colors that are often used. Luckily, most people have a room in their home that has either white, or beige walls – so an easy template to start working with.

In pretty much any room you can add the pop of color with curtains or other soft treatments in the room (blankets, pillows, rugs). Generally you want to add a pattern or a pop of navy blue.  There are a ton of different materials in the store this year with prints ranging from anchors, to starfish, to simple sailing stripes.

If you are dealing with a bedroom, change out the comforter set to bring in the patterns and designs.  If a bathroom, switch out the shower curtain.  It’s even a simple update in a bathroom – changing out the counter accessories (there are a ton of shell themed bathroom accessories).

But remember, the basis of the style is to keep it simple and clean.  Add one piece, or multiple pieces, but just make sure to make it fun!
