How To Decorate Your Space
The Living Room, Bedrooms & Home Office
Start by picking a Venice scene that you like. Typically, spring decor is complemented with bright, joyful colors along with florals and greens denoting new life. In the living room, bedroom or home office, you can add throw pillows and an accent rug based on the colors in your newly framed picture of Venice. Or, you can print the picture directly on one of the throw pillows. Then surround it with two other pillows with colors or patterns inspired by the picture.

The Kitchen & Dining Room
Depending on the size of your space, a series of smaller prints can add a fresh perspective and brighten up any room. Add in some colored glassware reminiscent of Murano, the famous smaller island of Venice. For nearly 1000 years, families have passed down the mesmerizing skill of combining fire and colored glass to make some of the most unique blown glass pieces seen around the world.

A stunning framed photo of Venice can be the perfect backdrop to a lace tablecloth inspired by the Venetian island of Burano. Generations of mothers have created handmade lace tablecloths, napkins and handkerchiefs.

Bathroom or Laundry Room
Everywhere you go in Venice, the magical city has something beautiful to see. There are palaces lining the Grand Canal and beautiful bridges of marble that have stood for centuries. But, all throughout Venice, one of the most eye-catching things that brings a smile to all passers-by is the colorful clothing hanging from the clotheslines. Attached between the buildings, and very often hanging over the canals, clotheslines decorate the air with a variety of garments and attire. These sparks of color make the antique city come to life. They are reminders that within these old walls, there are people with personal stories continuing today.

Spring Symbolizes Rebirth, New Beginnings & Your Decor Can Too
After the long cold winter, the sun shines and flowers bloom. Most Venice residents don’t have front lawns or backyards for landscaping. Instead, beautiful flowers adorn the windows and balconies. There are gardens, but many are hidden behind the larger palaces. When I do come across a park or area with fresh cut grass, I take a moment to breathe in that refreshing and invigorating scent.
Here’s a spring decor idea that is good for your health too! Spring is the perfect time to bring nature inside. Choose some indoor plants from your garden or your local gardener. Ask about the best plants to improve the indoor air-quality of your home. Often, these varieties require very little attention and are amongst the easiest to care for.
