Throw Pillows on a Couch Spring has sprung. Flowers are blooming everywhere and the colors are simply glorious. You can bring the bright colors of spring into your apartment home with simple touches and additions, like the following:
Create Bold Accents With Paint
Simply use paint to accent certain pieces of furniture in your apartment. It can be an inexpensive touch that brings bright focus to any room. Consider adding pops of color to nightstands, shelves or even flower vases.
Use your imagination and find suitable pieces of furniture or decor pieces for splashes of color. In addition, find the right color to make you feel as happy inside your apartment as you do when exploring the bright colors of nature outside.
Bring in Vivid Pieces of Art
Art doesn’t have to be expensive to be inspiring. You can find a wide range of moderately priced pieces of art. Find an artist that inspires you and look for prints or canvas paintings that makes it feel like spring all year. It doesn’t have to be a specific type of art; it can simply be something that inspires you.
Use Pillows and Throws to Add Color
Even if you have a solid leather sofa, a brightly colored pillow or throw can make it seem much more inviting for curling up with a book, a laptop, or even to watch a favorite television show. Light blankets are ideal for spring. But, you should find throws and pillows that best suit your tastes. And remember, you can change them out seasonally – or according to your mood.
Choose Colorful Furniture and Accent Pieces
There’s no rule that says furniture must be solid gray, black or brown. If you look hard enough, you’ll find plenty of bold and bright color choices for furniture which is an excellent choice to lighten up an apartment. However, if you’re not ready to go quite that bold, you might want to consider adding accent pieces like pottery, vases, or bowls for more color.

Brunch is overtaking dinner as the perfect meal for a fun get-together. It feels lighter and less formal, which adds an air of levity that dinners do not have. Combined with springtime, which is traditionally thought of as a more carefree and lighter season, it’s the perfect backdrop for a great afternoon party.
Here are some tips for hosting a brunch that comes off flawlessly and lets your guests have the most enjoyable experience:
Remember the Basics
In order for your guests to be able to pay attention to your more delicate touches, you have to ensure that they aren’t distracted by missing fundamentals. Make sure you have an easily-accessible place to put their coats and other such belongings. Ensure that cold drinks and other ongoing accessories are within easy reach as well. Finally, remove anything that can be easily broken by people who are distracted by the milling around of all of the guests.
Expand Beyond the Breakfast Food
It’s brunch, not breakfast. Pretty much any food that’s good for lunch will do. Try something new and unique for your drink offering, as well. Overall, avoid cliched foods and drinks. You want your menu to be memorable.
Skip the Candles
They’re not necessary for daytime events. Instead, take advantage of the natural lighting in your apartment home.
Invite the Right Number of Guests to Your Space
A good party room feels full without being so crowded that people can’t avoid bumping into each other. If you think you won’t have enough guests to do the job, add large bouquets of flowers and other fillers to get the right feel. Conversely, if you want so many guests that they won’t all fit in your intended room, consider having the main part of your party in our spacious clubhouse (it includes a kitchen) or in our outdoor kitchen area.
Use a Bold Tablecloth
This will make up for issues like bland, white dinnerware and basic flatware. Floral patterns are especially good for springtime events.
Keep Some Formality
If you’re going to assign seating, use fancy place cards so everyone knows where to go.
