Spring is Here - Decorate in Bright Hues from Country Curtains®

Stockbridge, MA, March 29, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Does your home décor need a burst of color? Now that spring is underway, it’s the perfect time to freshen up home décor with bright colors.  Country Curtains®, a leading provider of window treatments, has a variety of vibrant products to get any makeover project underway.

Barbara Devine, a senior buyer at Country Curtains, says that although pastels tend to be the norm this time of year, bolder colors will set the scene for 2007.  Colors from green to purple and blue are hot for spring.  “When introduced through a valance or pillow, these colors convey the essence of spring and are the perfect complement to any redecorating project. 

“The season of spring is all about green,” says Devine.  It symbolizes growth in nature. Devine says green thrives in bold hues from acid, lime green to kelly green to blue green.  Greens such as Peridot add a modern feel to home décor in the Chelsea product line, featuring tailored panels.

Purple remains a hot color with fashion designers and it’s finally making its way into mainstream home fashions.  Devine notes that purple is equally as eye catching in a subdued lavender as it is in a plum. To infuse some purple into your home décor, she suggests using a Lynley table runner in Lilac. It's ideal for dressing a table for a festive event, such as Easter. 

Blues are traditionally linked to robin’s egg blue this time of year, but blues from powder and cobalt are stealing the attention this year as can be found in the Hatfield Jacobean Floral design. The Hatfield Princess Valance is a quick and easy fix for the window, as it combines blues and green, and can be effortlessly mounted over a sheer to provide a pop of color.  Toile is traditionally linked with spring and looks fresh in a blue pattern against a bright white background.

Devine emphasizes to play with color when decorating for Spring.  “Don’t take yourself too seriously. Be creative and use some items you may already have in your home that are collecting dust somewhere.  It’s all about having fun!”
