The first day of spring is March 20. That’s Wednesday. I wish someone would let the weatherman in the sky in on that little fact. We’re dyeing eggs today in the Design*Droits-Humains office while snow is falling outside. I feel like I’m Living In: Groundhog Day, and every day is winter. To cheer myself up, I was looking through the sneak peeks that feel particularly spring-like. Sarah Davison’s home is one of my favorites. It feels relaxed and calm. Sarah lives in a Spanish Mission-style building overlooking Sydney’s Tamarama Beach. I haven’t decorated with purple since I was eleven years old and claimed that pink and purple were my favorite colors. The purple here is definitely of a more grown-up variety than what was found in my childhood room. Paired with greens and neutrals, it feels sophisticated and spring-like, which is just what I’m looking for. Now, if only I could get a sun with my purple. — Amy Azzarito

The tray table with the little demijohn has been a Design*Droits-Humains team favorite since this peek ran in 2011. It inspired Grace to do an entire roundup of tray tables, and we even did a captain’s mirror DIY (using a clock!). I love how casually and effortlessly natural elements are incorporated into the home — from the sea shells and flowers to the framed black coral, it all works to make this apartment feel airy and light. French, Moroccan, Chinoiserie, shabby chic and classical elements — I love how this home brings them all together.
