Use the yin and yang of spring to spruce up your home decor


Griffin likes lemon yellow as an accent color. Fashion designers like Marissa Webb and Derek Lam, and retailers like H&M and Joe Fresh embraced that hue this season, and decor is following suit. A throw pillow quilted to resemble subway tiles; octagonal and square dinnerware; and a galvanized trunk that could work as both storage and table are all at CB2 in taxicab yellow. (www.cb2.com )

Muse and You turns a single bloom into modern art underfoot with the Rosa rug, while the Morocco employs hot pink, carnation and plum in a statement tile-print rug. (www.museandyou.com )

Portuguese artist Danny Ivan creates digital prints with a pop art aesthetic: His Colorful Mountains design, offered several ways including as a throw pillow, is a happy explosion of vivid, graphic, cubist shapes. Three of the Possessed, an Australian design collective, renders geometric patterns and images of birds and animals in colorful prismatic designs. (www.society6.com )

Sometimes, all you need to give a room a spring facelift is to change out a few elements. New lampshades are an easy tweak. Seascape Lamps has punchy modern graphic designs for a wide range of fixtures, in on-trend plum and tangerine. A whimsical sketched garden on deep burgundy brings in a contemporary country vibe, and there are photo-printed lemons and cherries here as well. (www.seascapelamps.com )
