Out with the old, and in with the new! Spring is here, and that means a fresh new palette of dazzling colors to choose from— but don’t worry, we’re not talking about your ordinary tired pastels here. Cool greens, sizzling neons, and intense yellows will all bring on that warm weather feeling — with a kick! If you’re looking to banish the winter blues from your home (both literally and figuratively), check out the projects below.
With the warmer weather just around the corner, you’re going to be spending more time outside — and so will your neighbors! Curbside appeal is everything, and a front porch makeover has it in spades. Up your game by painting your front door in a bright, friendly hue like primrose yellow or lapis blue. Colorful planters, vibrant doormats, and a painted wood bench or rocking chair provide snatches of secondary color as well — and a feast for the eyes!
How about a little neon to go with your green? Color-blocked plants are predicted to make waves this year, so if you want to impress your friends with your trend ESP, get on the bandwagon early. Specifically, hanging plants framed by bright color blocks — or a ceramic pot dipped in electric orange, sunshine yellow, or neon pink — bring knock-out color that practically sings with intensity (and if you’re crafty, you can even DIY one for yourself!)
Window frames shouldn’t have to be boring. One trend that’s been on home designers’ radar for a while has been the growing appeal of brightly colored frames. Mint green, rust red, and burnt orange are some of the flashier color choices available from manufacturers. They’re an excellent way to add a modern twist to your home’s exteriors. So if you’re thinking of getting new windows this year — but are tired of the same old, same old — these might be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
