Spring is here. The daffodils and crocuses are popping through the muddy, frozen ground, the redbuds are radiating from their branches, and the bright morning sun and the sounds of songbirds are slipping through your windows; awakening you to a new day.

A few hints to consider when adding a splash of springtime to your decor are to follow the 6:3:1 rule; room color accents should be only 10 percent of the room’s color.
