PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WVBT) - Spring Cleaning Week continues and now we're turning our attention to the decorating side of things.
Shelley Bordeaux, is an Interior Designer with Ethan Allen Design Center at Town Center and she has some ideas to help freshen up your home's look for spring.
- What are some tips for freshening up your home for spring?
Spring is about flowers, so bringing fresh flowers into the home is the easiest way to brighten up your space. You could also splash your home with very realistic tulips from Ethan Allen.
Accessories for the home also have great impact such as colorful throw pillows, artwork, lamps, table top items and small occasional tables. We have a fantastic new custom art program which has just been introduced.
- Is there a particular area in the home that people don't often consider freshening up?
It is often the windows that get left out! Now may be the time to add a new valance, drapery panels or the elegant simplicity of wood shutters. It's that finishing touch to the room.
- Does Ethan Allen have outdoor furniture?
Absolutely! Our Biscayne collection has transitional styling and comes in three finishes of cast aluminum. The collection is extensive enough to do a complete outdoor living and dining room. The Manhattan Beach collection is contemporary and comes in an ebony weatherproof vinyl. Our designers can help you design an outdoor space as well as an indoor space.
- What promotions do you have going on right now?
We are currently in the midst of our March sale. Ethan Allen has just introduced some new amazing products and you will be able to see them in our design center very soon!
