Samantha Pynn’s New Spring Linens Will Cure The Winter Blues
HGTV Home to Win designer Samantha Pynn releases her new collection of bedding and table linens for Canadian retailer Simons on March 2, 2017. Spring is a perfect time to update your home with trends such as Pantone’s color of the year, Greenery, she says. “Green is a huge trend color, and for me it’s a happy accident. I wanted to do green floral bedding for ages, but people told me green in the bedroom is not great. I felt if we could add some grey, we could make it work,” she says. Read on to see Samantha’s latest collection and get her tips for spring decorating — plus, discover her toss pillow pet peeve!
“The biggest and easiest way to update for spring is to change linens. Grasscloth comes in so many different colors and it’s a great way to add depth and texture. It works particularly well with floral bedding such as this hyacinth print.”
“I am bananas about dogwood and cherry blossoms. When you can bring this motif into table linens or bedding, then you don’t have to buy flowers… although I fully support indulgences like flowers!”
“I am seeing a lot of colorful ceramic ware and these floral table linens have such a soft, fluid beauty, they won’t overwhelm the dishware. It’s a natural for a spring table. To create this pattern, tiny little florals were painted, and then scanned and blown up so it still feels like an original painting.”
“This diamond pattern was hand drawn and I really love that looser, more artistic quality in this. I have noticed that geometrics are softening a bit. I love stripes too, but a design like my Noah’s Lines is much more organic, and still brings in so much color.”
“I don’t adhere to any rules when it comes to mixing prints for bedding, but what I do is make sure the color is consistent. It doesn’t have to be exact. If you had grey, green or yellow bedding, I would make sure that the pillows, draperies, or throws contained at least one of those three colors. This floral uses a green that’s light and bright and fresh, not heavy.”
“Mixing pattern depends on your color fear factor. Some people can mix hundreds of patterns together and in the end, it works. Some just want neutrals. I don’t know if I follow any rules but I don’t think you should have too many little pillows on the bed. No one wants to spend 10 minutes taking the pillows off the bed.”
