Did you know that as a homeowner, furniture is the third most expensive thing you will ever buy, after a house and a car? So it only makes sense that you do everything you can to show it off. If you are looking for some inspiration on what to do with your luxury Italian furniture and high end furnishings, read on. Here are some interior decorating ideas that will get your house ready for the warm days of spring.

Florals with a twist

No, we aren't talking old fashioned, tablecloth-like florals. Instead, think large prints with whimsical pastel watercolors. Nervous about using florals in your house? The easiest way is to slowly integrate them in with bedspreads and pillows, then graduate to curtains and even upholstered chairs.

Texture everywhere

The best way to make your high end furnishings look lived in and cozy? Use some texture! Large, cozy knits bring the perfect mix of hominess and sophistication, but it is important to make sure you don't go overboard. Keep it simple by having one or two textured pieces, such as a throw blanket and an ottoman, so your room doesn't look too cramped.

Don't be afraid of some glitz and glam

We have all seen metallics everywhere on the furnishing circuit, from golden lamps and mirrored tables to bronze Italian furnishings. This trend is still going strong and is now being incorporated with extra glitter to make everything pop. Choose light fixtures, knick-knacks, and even chairs to bring this look into your home.

Neutral pastels

Don't worry, neutral pastels aren't going anywhere anytime soon! However, they are changing a little bit. Instead of beiges, creams, and grays, Italian fashion brands have started to roll out light pink, lavender, and sky blue for anything from luxury Italian furniture to high end gifts. If you are looking to incorporate these colors into your home, always choose a color one shade lighter than you want for the best output.

With these interior design tips in mind, you will be on your way to having a gorgeous home, all ready for spring!
