Home Decor Refresh: What’s Inspiring Us This Spring Season?

Lately, the world of interior design has been abuzz with spring decorating ideas. From a butter-yellow color scheme to playfully scalloped edges, the current trends are making us feel more excited to get outside and enjoy the warmth and sunshine. 

Our Charleston interior designers at GDC rounded up some of our favorite decor ideas to inspire your home projects this spring.

Scalloped Edges

Recalling the shape of seashells, scalloped edges are a fun embellishment that we’ve seen a lot within the context of the grand millennial trend. From mirrors to lampshades, throw pillows, and placemats, these whimsically curved edges bring a playful, yet sophisticated look to traditional or modern home decor. If you’re planning a spring tablescape, start with a scalloped edge placemat, like our Macrame Set of 4 Placemats to introduce a sense of softness and style to your spring dinnerware set.

Al Fresco Tables

Now that we are finally experiencing warmer weather, it’s the perfect time to invest in designing outdoor dining areas that you’ll enjoy all season long. Lately, we’ve been leaning into the aesthetic of rustic wooden tables covered with colorful glassware, pastel colors, and fresh greenery. Beyond our scalloped placemats and linens, you can find plenty of other spring dinnerware and table top pieces on our website or in-store. To get ideas for your outdoor spring table, take a look at some inspiring tablescapes here.

Butter Yellow

This trending spring color has come full force out of nowhere, and we are so pleased to see it! It is mellow, yet cheerful; colorful, yet understated. A fresh coat of yellow paint can warm up a room, or you can use butter yellow as a pop of color in your upholstery, cushions, or artwork. This perfect pastel pairs well with a neutral color palette, adding a sunny touch to a primary bedroom, home office, or living room.

Sculptural Vases

Unique vases can serve as standalone decorative objects on your entryway table, or be used to display spring flowers or greenery. For example, our Ceramic Ruffle Vase has an artisanal elegance that instantly creates a sophisticated feel in your entryway or on a dining table, especially when filled with seasonal blooms. Or, if you want an arrangement that doesn’t require upkeep, opt for faux tulips or spring branches to create a focal point that won’t fade.

As the temperatures rise and we move from the spring months into summer, lighter materials like linen provide a relaxed and comfortable feel that’s perfect for staying cool. The natural texture and breathability of linen make it ideal for window treatments, upholstery, bed linens, and dinnerware settings.  

Jewelry-Like Hardware

Like jewelry for your furniture pieces, beautiful hardware instantly elevates a room. One of the easiest ways to refresh your furniture is to switch from factory knobs and handles to bespoke ones. Think colored glass, gold, or silver and you’ll be on the right track!
