Looking for interesting colors to use this spring? Here are some of our top spring color tips.

USE RED

Red is one of the most versatile colors. In nature, found anywhere from flowers to birds, red is an ideal color to signal the return of spring.

CONSIDER USING A COMBINATION OF CITRUS COLORS

When looking for interesting spring colors to pair, you won’t go wrong with yellow and green.

DON’T BE AFRAID TO USE TINTS, TONES AND SHADES OF GREEN

Green is a very clean color and combined tints, tones and shades in a single space can feel crisp and fresh.

USE SPRING COLORS IN UNEXPECTED AREAS OF THE HOME SUCH AS KITCHENS AND BATHROOMS

Often these spaces are ignored and may even need more attention.

GO BEYOND FLOWERS

While flowers are a wonderful way to include elements of spring, accessories and artwork can go a long way in telling a spring color story.

THINK CHARTREUSE

Chartreuse is one of those colors that is always on trend. Chartreuse can be paired with dark sophisticated colors like charcoal gray, brown or black. Chartreuse can also be used alone or paired with lighter colors to create a lighter look.

ADD A NEW, AFFORDABLE DECOR ELEMENT SUCH AS LIGHTING OR TOSS PILLOWS

Tired of your same look? Why not add a new table or floor lamp or toss pillows to your space? These are some low-cost decor options that will help to refresh your space.

Paint. Walls don’t have to be white. Whether an accent wall or overall color, painting is a quick, affordable and instant way to add color to your space.

Greenery. Whether trees or plants, greenery can also help to bring an element of spring into the home.

Orange. Orange is one of the more popular colors in home decor. It’s not only a warm and happy color, but it also blends well with other colors including those suitable for spring because most shades have strong yellow undertones.
