Interior Design Trends & Inspiration for Spring 2020

Happy early spring! Despite the stress and anxiety over the corona virus, I hope you will take the time to enjoy the beauty of the early spring temperatures and the blossoms of the crocus, daffodils and soon to be tulips. If you are going to be home bound, spring is a great time to renovate, refurbish, declutter, and paint those dull rooms screaming for some color or brightness in your home.

Every year, the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina inspires Interior Designers with the best furnishings, products and accessories for you to enjoy and utilize in your home to make it more inviting pleasant and more efficient. If you are planning for some home renovations or changes to take place during the nicer weather here are some ideas to consider:

Some of these trends are:
