Bring the Palms Indoors

Tropical looks make a room pop year-round. Update a space with removable wallpaper that can be changed with the seasons. Designer Michelle Gage selected this palm print design for a bar area. "I like my wallpaper to be totally original, colorful and have a bit of a kick. Think flamingos and birds of paradise," she says. Lucite furniture also keeps the space feeling light and airy, so it may be time to look for a deal on bar carts.

Punch Up a Stairway

For a bolder springtime shift, head to your stairs. Bob and Cortney Novogratz added a painted stripe pattern with candy-hued stripes on a staircase that leads to an eclectic living room. In living spaces, store the wintertime materials such as velvet, faux fur and flannel, and fluff up a couch with throw pillows in vivid hues.

Burst Out with Yellow

Buttery yellows may not be your go-to color, but Brian Patrick Flynn says, "I love to go bright and cheerful with really bold shades of lemon." For this sun-kissed room, he spray-painted an existing dining set with a glossy yellow finish. White square lattice work on the wall might evoke the feeling of dining in a garden.
