Spring is all about clean spaces, natural light, and greenery. There’s something so refreshing about a bright airy bedroom that just wants to make us hit snooze. Here are some beautiful examples of airy bedrooms perfect for springtime snoozing:

All that fluffy white bedding looks so dreamy in this wonderfully lit room. We love how the clean white shelving let’s all the little knickknacks speak for themselves, and the burst of freshness the leafy plant provides.

Clean, calm, and serene. The neutral colors of the throw and rug ground this bright white room, and who wouldn’t love to wake up to a bouquet of bright flowers?

Butcher paper and crayons make the dining experience fun for little ones. But if we’re being totally honest, it looks great, and would be a perfectly acceptable last minute solution for the grown up table, too!

Here’s another fun way to make your table interactive — more free printables!

In 2014, Pantone announced Radiant Orchid as the color of the year, and while the lilac-y tone was fun and bright, we are excited to see more of the 2015 Pantone color — Marsala. Marsala is a warm, rustic brown-hued red that has a versatile and timeless feel that goes great in just about any space. Here are a few fun finds:

Marsala plays well with others! In this living room, the earthy reds of the couch and rug are the perfect compliment to the blue and gold elements.

It also looks great against this sophisticated white palate — you can find hints of Marsala in tons of gorgeous oriental rugs we have here in the showroom!

Marsala can be a vibrant accent wall that adds some POP without being overbearing.

And it can also work as a more subtle splash of color, as with this striped throw.

We love the way this deep red tub livens up this bathroom.

A color that evokes so much spice and richness goes perfectly in the kitchen, too!
