Maybe we’re just looking at the past with rose-colored glasses, but winter used to feel different. In the good old days, the only inconvenience the season brought us was relatively mild – the occasional storm; frosted windshields; the need to wear mittens. Nowadays every winter storm has its own name, the weather channel has never been more popular, and even the New York Times devotes full articles to how bad this winter was. Needless to say, warm weather cannot come soon enough. If you’re as nervous as we are about the flowers and the color of spring, why wait? Get a head start on the season by bringing the uplifting charm of nature inside with these fabulous floral decor elements. From pillows to wallpaper, there’s a touch of spring for every budget.
