What's in store: A sneak peek at what's new in and around town.
Shape, palettes that pop, floral prints and organically inspired silhouettes and products make the must-have checklist for spring. The residue of winter’s frost ushers in shades of white and pale sky-blue. The earthy grain of cabinetry and woodwork is present making its own mark on rich interior solutions. Also, with traveling that ensues during the break in the weather, you can carry along a bit of floral fun with accessories that put a little spring in the air. Carry on and have a season that’s … FRESH, FIERCE and FUN.
