Don’t Skip These 4 Things: A Designer-Guided Spring Refresh for Your Home

A new season is just around the corner, and many of us are eager to give our homes a spring refresh. But how do you create a space that not only looks beautiful but also functions well? It’s all about selecting the right furnishings and finishes and paying attention to every last detail. In fact, functional design can set the tone for a truly exceptional home.

Our team of designers defines the four key ways to achieve your spring goals that embrace natural light, earthy tones, clean lines, and organic silhouettes. From luxurious textiles to bespoke lighting fixtures, these tips will help you elevate your home’s style to the next level.

1. Unique Lighting Fixtures

Unique Lighting For Spring Refresh
Elegant chandeliers feel like art installations in an otherwise blank space. The stairway chandelier from our Westlake Modern Home is a modern piece made from a satin brass finish and integrated LED lighting, and the dining room chandelier, consisting of a blackened iron frame with frosted seedy glass discs creates a statement in our Eleven on the River residence.

Lighting can enhance the ambiance and sophistication of any room. Ditch the boring canned lighting and opt for unique fixtures like chandeliers, floor lamps, sconces, and pendant lights. Not only do they provide illumination, but they can also serve as stunning works of art in their own right.

According to Senior Designer Emily Anderson, selecting the right lighting fixtures can help create warmth, comfort, and style in a space – perfect for a spring refresh. Trust your designer with unique options to ignite conversation and set the tone for any occasion.

2. Luxurious Textiles and Fabrics

Black-out roman shades and a custom area rug are a staple for this space and set the tone for a calming atmosphere. An upholstered and tufted bed frame and headboard are set up for luxurious bedding in different textures of linens and cotton. A matelassé coverlet, a cable knit style throw, and textured throw pillows are enticing and complete the space with comfort and indulgence.

Transform your home into a cozy, sophisticated retreat by incorporating luxurious textiles and fabrics. Imagine the softness of sumptuous velvet drapes, the sheen of silk throw pillows, and the warmth of cashmere throws. These indulgent accents add comfort and infuse your space with elegance and style. The best part? Mix and match different textures and patterns to create a unique look showcasing your personality.

  • Custom Pillows with Special Details: Small details, like trims and welts, bold patterns, or subtle textures, can significantly impact. Complement your decor with the perfect pillows without sacrificing the necessary comfort.
  • Window Treatments: Pay attention to the importance of window treatments in completing the look of your space. Flowing drapes, tailored Roman shades, and sleek blinds are all great options to add privacy, insulation, and style to any room.
  • Custom Rugs: One-of-a-kind custom rugs from Fay + Belle are tailor-made to fit your unique style and preferences. Whether you dream of a luxurious silk rug or a cozy wool blend, bespoke rugs can transform your space into a warm and inviting haven.
  • Luxurious Bedding: Bedding transforms a bedroom into a sanctuary of comfort and style. From custom-made sheets and duvet covers to decorative pillows and throws, every detail counts when creating a sumptuous sleep retreat.

Senior Designer Krystal Kellermann says, “Your bedding can still be practical with your choice of sheets. I prefer to pick the material for my own sheets, and you still can, but you can also do much to elevate a bed with your top linens, decorative pillows, and/or throws.”

3. Art Selection

Have you considered adding some art pieces to your space? Not only do they enhance your walls and overall aesthetic, but they can also reflect your unique personality and style. Whether you’re a fan of contemporary paintings or vintage prints, with the help of a designer, you can curate your own personal art collection that will make your home feel complete.

4. Embrace What You Love

One of the easiest ways to personalize your furniture is with COMs (or the customer’s own materials). From custom furnishings that are uniquely yours to bespoke upholstery pieces in a durable or nostalgic fabric, using COMs ensures there is no piece quite like yours. By incorporating COMs, you can tailor the details of any piece to your specifications, ensuring a plush sofa, a cozy armchair, or a statement headboard to fit your space.

When it comes to a spring refresh for your home, your first step is believing your home can be the best reflection of your personal style and taste. By using beautiful furnishings and finishes that inspire and delight you, your home will be anything but out of the catalog. Working with a designer can help you identify and address any functional needs while also incorporating all the potential that your home has to offer. A designer can also help you bring everything together in a cohesive and visually stunning way, creating a space that truly feels like home.
