Full-Spring Ahead!

During the colder months most of us make a pretty good dent in our sofas by spending lots of time getting all cozy and dreaming of warmer weather. We were ecstatic to hear that Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow (yippee!), because at Art Van, we dream of warmer weather… and redecorating. If you feel the same impulse to create, we’re here to remind you that a little rearranging goes a long way. You’d be surprised how different your favorite chair looks three feet to the left.

Now that we know spring is arriving sooner than we expected, we really have the urge to freshen up the furniture and maybe toss on a fresh coat of paint in one of the super hot colors for 2011. If the “it’ color Honeysuckle is too out there for you, there are plenty of other color options to put a spring in your step.

Gray is still the neutral that reigns supreme. It’s the go-to color for walls, floors, furniture, and fashion. We love how well it goes with what you already have, but also how it brings out the vivacity of brighter colors like orange, fuchsia, and green. Speaking of green, what other color paints a better picture for the promise of new beginnings? There are various shades you can use to give your home a fresh feel, and this color is especially good for accent walls and accessories.

Before you start with all of the heavy lifting, try redecorating with our Room Planner. This free tool allows you to input all your room dimensions and contents so you can see how different arrangements will look. Then shop online or come in to see all the exciting new designs blooming in our showrooms, the Clearance Center, and Scott Shuptrine Interiors design studio. And don’t forget, our fun Spring Design Classes will be happening soon, so make sure you check the Special Events page at artvan.com to find out when and where we’ll be bringing spring to your town!
