4 Hues You’ll Be Seeing Everywhere This Spring

There’s so much about spring that brings joy - new beginnings, warmer weather, more daylight - we could go on and on! It’s the perfect time of year to create a fresh new look for your home.

Our surroundings have a huge effect on our moods and outlook on life, and what better way to set the tone for the months to come than a good spring clean and a fresh coat of paint.

We’ve rounded up our favourite colours that you’ll be seeing everywhere this season.  They’re sure to be a flawless backdrop to your spring refresh!

 

Best Judy

Get your lavender fix before the flower itself blooms in late spring with Best Judy. This versatile colour can shine as the life of the party in full sunlight, but transforms to be more muted and peaceful in lower light thanks to it’s grey undertones. 

Smokey lavender tones like Best Judy are perfect for creating a peaceful vibe while still being visually interesting and adding a little bit of personality to any colour scheme. This shade is one of our go to’s for creating an elegant, inviting space.

 

Stepping Stones

This delicate pebble grey shade is consistently one of our top selling hues.

Stepping Stones earned its spot on our Spring trends list as a great shade for balancing brighter pops of pastel colours. It’s also a solid choice year round as you swap around your accessories with the seasons, creating a whole lot of looks you’ll never tire of.

 

Sunshine Stroll

Sunshine Stroll is at the top of our list for versatile spring colours. This subtle sun kissed off-white shade with subtle pink undertones brings a little bit of energy to a room while still being timeless. The warm undertones in Sunshine Stroll totally remind us of those first couple adventures in the sun after months of ‘freeze your face off’ weather, sparking joy and optimism in any space. 

We love Sunshine Stroll especially as a warm backdrop with a crisp white trim (check out our Snow Angel Semi-Gloss Trim Paint). This is an awesome combo that creates a classy but approachable vibe that will make your home seem warm and welcoming.

 

Full Moon Party

The options for white paint are endless and can be one of the most overwhelming shades to select given the subtle differences an undertone in white can create. Full Moon Party, a beautiful warm white with a hint of creamy undertones, creates a rich pleasant backdrop for any space.

Full Moon Party is another great shade we love for its classic versatility, meaning you can continue to switch up your decor over time without needing to paint a new hue.

 

Don’t stop at spring cleaning this year, grab a paintbrush and refresh your entire vibe with a new hue on the walls, and get ready for new beginnings and good memories that the coming months will bring.

Entryway Makeover with Our Uncluttered House

Michele Savage is an Ontario-based home decor blogger, DIY-er, mother, dog-lover and the voice behind Our Uncluttered House. Recently Michele transformed her front entryway with the help of Digby Paints and some other great brands. We wanted to hear more about her journey and design process when starting a new project. Thanks for sharing your insights with us, Michele!

Michele Savage of Our Uncluttered House

 

Q: Where do you draw inspiration from for your home projects in general? 

A: I honestly just do what I love…I watch a lot of HGTV and love looking at local real estate listings.  I don’t ever like to copy an idea, I like to take something I’ve seen and add my own touch.

Q: When designing a space like the front hallway project you just completed, how do you land on a paint colour?

A: I’m a huge fan of green and have a lot of green touches in my home so naturally I wanted to incorporate it into our entryway.  I was using wallpaper with a dark background so when I was perusing the Digby Paint Chips, “Gone Fishing” immediately jumped out at me and it was the perfect choice.


Q: What is the favourite DIY project you’ve completed and why?

A: We were selected to participate in a Renovation Challenge when Our Uncluttered House was very new back in 2017…we really had no business jumping in but we did!  It was the first time we ever installed floor tile but we were (and still are) so proud of all we accomplished and learned.  Luckily in 2017 we were able to make multiple in person trips to our local hardware store and gather tips and advice from their professionals!

 

Q: Do you have any advice for those looking to tackle an upcoming painting or DIY project? Anything you’ve learned from your past experiences that you’d like to share?

A: I always recommend doing a little research if you are tackling a project you’ve never done before.  We often jump in headfirst and run into snags…. but nothing YouTube hasn’t been able to get us out of.  For painting, I recommend spending the extra money on good rollers and brushes, it’s totally worth it.  And honestly – the rollers in the Digby Paint Kit are the best I’ve used!


Q: How did you hear about Digby Paints?

A: I first heard about Digby Paints in Chatelaine magazine (my fave mag!), I immediately headed to Google to do some research and loved everything I read!  Canadian founded by women – women with experience in the industry. Mostly however, the whole “deliver to your door” concept which was especially helpful in the middle of a pandemic. Plus, I love the 60 curated colours, for me, it totally simplifies picking our paint colours.


Q: What was your experience like using Digby Paints? Did anything surprise you?

A: I love finding new products, especially Canadian products and I always try a new product with an open mind.  I was immediately amazed at the quality of Digby Paints.  I instantly compared it to the quality a big (and more expensive) brand of paint has.  I like to bring affordable options to my followers and I knew right away I could recommend Digby Paints to them as an affordable and good quality paint.


Q: If you were a Digby Paints colour, what colour would you be?

A: If I were a Digby Paint Colour I think I would be Good Vibes….I like to think that’s what I’m all about!  But I would also currently like to be Road Trip and go just about anywhere!


Q: We know you’re currently tackling a basement renovation - what can you tell us about it?

A: This basement reno is our BIGGEST DIY EVER!   We’ve definitely learned a lot along the way… my husband has put in countless hours to get us to where we are now…. at the painting stage!  We’re finishing this basement as affordably and efficiently as we can.  We’re using products that I can recommend to others like Digby Paints, vinyl plank flooring, affordable plumbing fixtures, right down to finding affordable furniture, textiles and blinds.  I want anyone that follows me to look at what we are accomplishing, on a budget, and know they can do it too.

 

Q: What house project is next? Tell us about it! 

A: I can only answer this if you promise not to tell my husband… haha!  I think our next project will be our laundry room.  The current layout is very non-functional.  We have a plan to stack our appliances, add some storage – definitely some paint!  It will be an affordable and attainable DIY for sure!
