HEUCY Gals Anne Maxwell Foster and Suysel dePedro Cunningham started their interior design firm Tilton Fenwick in 2010. Since then, these two tastemakers and savvy entrepreneurs have been racking up more accolades than I can count! Most notably, they were chosen as one of Traditional Home Magazine’s Top 20 “New Traditionals,” a label which we love here at HEUCY. Mixing “traditional aesthetic with a fresh perspective” is what we’re all about, too!
Suysel and Anne were kind enough to share their tips for a Spring home refresh with us. Because, you know, it will be sunny one day (this is obviously meant for New Yorkers…if you live elsewhere and you’re already enjoying the sunshine, well…we still love ya).
Thank you, Suysel and Anne, for the fabulous and easy-to-do revamp tips below!
- Accessories swap:
Switch out accessories like vases and frames for more springy citrus colors. Swap out pillows, area rugs and add some flea market finds that are inexpensive.
- New look:
Give something old a new look. Maybe spray paint a mirror or an old chandelier and give it new life!
If you don’t already have them, buy some fresh plants. We love a fiddle leaf tree in a corner to add life to a room.
Swap out those wintery candle scents like pine and woodsy scents for more floral spring and grassy tones.
- Switch out bedding:
Think light and airy bedding and blankets and store those heavy duvets and heavier throw blankets. New decorative pillows on a bed also all for a new look without spending too much money.
We love buying inexpensive dishes at places like HomeGoods, West Elm and flea markets. Having springy floral designs on the table makes us so happy!
Happy Hump Day! Always nice to think about a little refresh.
