Spring is the perfect time to give your home a fresh look. From serene shades to vivid hues, here are eight color schemes to consider this season.

1. Liven up traditional design with the hottest spring colors. Try brightly colored wallpaper in a formal dining room featuring turquoise and tomato red.

2. Pair classic red with hot pink for a bold bedroom design. Use gold and cream in the bedding and wallpaper to keep the vibrant shades from overpowering the space.

3. Spring hues are ideal for a girl’s bedroom. Damask fabric in apple green would complement a vivid pink wall, while a white headboard and bedding would provide the space a crisp, fresh look.

4. One of the most appealing shades of spring is deep blue. Combine it with tomato red, turquoise and apple green, to create an energetic and bright design.

5. A classic blue-and-yellow combo is always a favorite. White is often paired with this palette to keep it light and airy, but black accents would create a richer, more sophisticated atmosphere.

6. Welcome nature into the bedroom with a soft green. It has a calming effect.

7. Bring light into your room with a vivid yellow. Pair it with gray.

8. Neutrals don’t have to be just cream, white or tan. You could use a deep-green wall color as a neutral backdrop.
