Spring is a time of change and rebirth, when desert wildflowers blossom and long-sleeved shirts are put away. Here in Arizona, home landscaping is at its greenest and the weather is perfect for backyard entertaining. While the changes may be more subtle than in other regions, Valley residents can still highlight the season in their interior décor.
While tulips and hyacinth might be more traditional for spring, exotic plants such as bromeliads and orchids make for a clean and crisp statement piece. Purchase a live variety in a vibrant shade of pink or “ultra violet” – Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2018 – and place it on a coffee table or countertop for high visibility. Classy silk arrangements such as this orchid and succulent combo may also substitute for living plants.
Add a Green Wall
According to HGTV stars Joanna Gaines and Sabrina Soto, shades of green are trending this spring. Pay homage to nature by adding a fresh coat of paint to the great room inside your Camelot home. New buyers may have their luxury homes accented with green, while current Camelot residents can contact our design team for a spring makeover. If you’re wary of painting an entire room green, consider adding a succulent wall inside your home or tiered planter boxes in a shady exterior spot to welcome spring.
Custom Design a Spring Wreath
Decorative wreaths are not confined to winter holidays. Spruce up the front door of your Camelot home with an elegant wreath in soft pastel colors (handcrafted or custom designed at a local art store). Include spring symbols such as robin’s eggs, birds and checkered picnic ribbons to evoke the warmth of the season. If your family celebrates spring holidays such as Easter or Passover, incorporate celebratory messages for these special days.
Cultivate an Indoor Garden
If you’re looking to bring a little bit of the outdoors in, create a windowsill herb garden for your kitchen. Use a pre-purchased planter, or decorate individual pots with kraft paper and twine for a natural look. Not only do basil, oregano and dill look lovely and smell fragrant, they also double as fresh ingredients for culinary creations in your gourmet kitchen. All the best chefs grow their own herbs, why shouldn’t you?
