5 SPRING TRENDS TO SPRUCE UP YOUR SPACE

Designer-approved trends inspired by the season.

BY Since launching her eponymous interiors firm in 2007, New York-based designer Young Huh has specialized in turning houses into homes, one room at a time. When it comes to her own spaces, she’s all about a seasonal refresh with of-the-moment decorative accessories and unexpected finishes. These small changes can make a world of a difference for waking up a tired space. Ready for a renewal yourself? Use Huh’s creative ideas on upgrades for spring.

shot-03-hero-080r-15221769371. Refresh Your Room’s Energy

Pale blues and serene greens can really change the mood of a space. No need to break out the paintbrush or buy a new sofa to get those peaceful, chill Spring vibes. Instead, focus on layering colored accents into your existing decor—adding a blue frame or candle on a living room console, placing a porcelain glass vase full of fresh flowers artfully on a mantel, and showcasing crystal topped containers can all enhance your room’s positive energy.
