    Decorate with hip colors. Move over, pastels – there’s a new color palette in town! Thanks to Pantone, there are plenty of spring-specific colors to choose from this year. Trendy options with names like “Radiant Orchid” and “Celosia Orange” will make your house scream spring without the slightest hint of those baby-nursery pastels! Check out Pantone’s website to see a full list of their 2014 spring colors.

    Dress up your terra cotta pots. A traditional terra cotta flowerpot isn’t exactly an eyesore, but we think leaving it in its original state squanders some serious design potential! Dress up your terra cotta pots with this simple step-by-step.

    Make mint juleps. It’s that time of year again – refreshing cocktail time!
