The Subtle Shades of Spring


We are just itching for the Spring weather to finally arrive here in New York City.  While we wait, we thought we could give a an old Queens apartment a dose of spring color.  To get some inspiration, we like to browse around on Desire to Inspire and look for images and colors.  These charming, yet minimal spaces look so fresh in shades of white and grown-up pastels-spring at its most subtle.  We are also fond of bright pops of color, which always keep us in a good mood.  

Here’s how we applied some spring color in Astoria.  This apartment has great bones – old-school arched doorways and light flooding into the main living area.

We always love a warm, tuscan orange. Here we combined it with a shade of butter, for a delicate and inviting room.

This apartment faces east and gets tons of light. It may be nice to cool it down with a most lovely pastel purple. We love purple because it’s cool, calm, but somehow still full of passion.

Lastly, for a pop of color, how about a warm gray paired with an electric purple-pink?  We love the surprising shock of color as you turn into the kitchen from the living room.

What are your favorite spring colors?

    This is a fabulous look! I love the colors and the juxtaposition of bright and pale. This would temper the bright sunshine without dimming the room. What colors would then accent the purples?
