Spring Has Sprung, Home Decorating with Blooming Branches

 
Bring Spring indoors by embracing the natural blooms from the outdoors. Spring is underway yet in many areas it may be a few more weeks till we see our bulbs or flowering branches in bloom. These natural elements are a beautiful way to welcome Spring indoors.

Tips on forcing your branches to flower:
Have you ever tried forcing your branches to flower? Why not give your green thumb a try...
 
~Cut a few branches off a favorite shrub or tree growing outdoors. Be sure to have your display vase, jar or decorative container picked out before cutting so you know how long to leave the branches. Make your cuts on an angle and try to do this on a warmer day if possible.
 
~Make a vertical slit or two up into the end of each stem and immediatly bring them indoors and put the cut ends in water. Check the water daily making sure the water is clear, change if the water appears to look cloudy. 
 
~Place your chosen vase out of direct sunlight and in a cool place until the buds begin to swell or look as if they will open. It's now time to put your blooming branches on display and into the sunlight. 
 
 
 
You have lots of choices for buds; any deciduous shrub or tree that flowers in early spring is a good candidate for forcing.

Paint Traditions... How much color is for you?

Flipping Your Paint Tradition
When looking for a quick way to add a punch of fun color, Paint the ceiling anything but white...
 
Paint your ceiling a bright color while leaving your walls white or in neutral hues. Bring the color down into the space with coordinating accessories like window-coverings, rugs, pillows and display pieces.
 


This room just wouldn’t be the same without that gorgeous warm color of this orangey-red ceiling. It’s just so striking. Painting your ceiling with a darker color will make your room visually feel lowered, giving your space an intimate and cozy feeling.






Paint the walls and moldings the same color but make the ceiling and doors pop with contrast. grey ceiling, neutral walls... a beautiful contrast!



Colorful ceilings look especially great in kids’rooms






 
Bring 2013 color of the year into the home. Paint the ceiling emerald and work some fabulous green shades into the room. Pillows that speak to you, this room reflects the perfect mix of colors and patterns.
 
 
 
 
Design Tip: Be cautious when you punctuate the room with color. Color is more powerful then you think. Highlight with well placed color in small amounts to make a huge impact. Follow the 80/20 rule for an amazing but not over bearing result!
(color 20% ~ neutral 80%)
 
 
 
Would you add color to your ceiling? If yes, What color would you choose?
