Spring has always been celebrated as a time of rebirth. For 2012, there will be an even greater sense of renewal. That’s because consumers will be regaining the optimism that was largely lost during years of economic turmoil. As the economy improves and their life-styles regain equilibrium, those consumers will be more willing to spend on seasonal gifts and décor.
There are few more-inspiring undertakings than adding light and bright color, or fresh looks inspired by the year’s warmer months, to home interiors. Bringing a themed floral arrangement into a room, changing the toss pillows to a brighter tone or including spring-patterned accent plates on the table all lift the spirits. Consumers will be looking for products that can do that in their everyday décor.
