With so many to-do lists for spring (organizing, cleaning, deep-cleaning), we thought it was time for one not-so-stressful (or labor-intensive). Our kind of list requires adding color, mixing patterns, and entertaining more. You get it. Have a look at our 11 springtime picks.
for the coffee table
Replace the oversized books with a set of napkins for resting cocktails.
for the bedside table
No more midnight trips to the kitchen. Let a glass carafe house water on your nightstand.
for the sofa
Easy spring update? Toss on a pillow in a punchy pattern. Yep, all it takes is one eye-catching addition to your mix.
for the office
Something slim. Something inconspicupous. Something that works overtime: desk weekdays; buffet table on weekends.
for the countertop
Something to smile about: This vibrant yellow and white striped vessel filled with your favorite blooms.
for the stovetop
The tea kettle was always our go-to for adding color to the color. This season, we’re calling on a casserole dish to make a red hot statement.
for the bar
Sure, it holds cubes, but this orange bucket will also add a burst of color to your bar or bar cart or random bookshelf stepping in as Saturday night’s serving station.
for the beach-bound
Whether lounging poolside or hitting the sands, a striped towel offers a classic vibe no matter where you claim your spot.
for the walls
Visions of summertime dance in our heads (and hang on our walls). Swap out winter scenes with something more seasonally appropriate.
for the entertainer
When you’re not breaking out this serving piece for a party, pop it on an ottoman for a surprising extra surface.
for the hostess
Weekend guests often arrive without warning (or invitation). Be prepared for Sunday brunch.
