“Looking for a spring refresh? Bring the outdoors in with earthy tones and organic materials. Invest in comfortable and timeless furniture pieces. Then, layer lamps and vases filled with quality faux spring blossoms and greenery stems. Finally, add texture and patterns with pillows, statement chairs, window treatments and artwork to add personality and give your home a burst of renewal.”

– Doug Holdaway, Owner and Creative Director
