Have you been staring at your greige walls since WFH started? Brighten up your home with these persimmon and pale blue accessories that will give your inside space a fresh look for spring. Bonus: These bright colors work with almost any neutral interior, and the items are all from local retailers that can ship or deliver during the stay-at-home order.


Set the stage with new artwork. Brighter walls = brighter space. “Blocks X,” $11,500, Acrylic paint on canvas by Adam Siegel (2018), 72-inches x 48-inches at Golden Triangle


Add a few blooming plants to make up for the time we’re not spending outside. And don’t settle for the grower’s pot these come in. City Escape has a beautiful selection of decorative pots you can slip your plant into. Blue hydrangea, $30 for 6-inch pot, at City Escape Garden Center


We love the bright persimmon of this large salad bowl. It would also look great filled with lemons or granny smith apples. Ekobo Bamboo Large Salad Bowl in Persimmon, $25, at Unison


This angular table lamp adds color, but in a subtle way. And who couldn’t use a little extra light for all our new projects—puzzles, coloring, knitting—that keep us busy indoors. Samos lamp, $495, at Jayson Home & Garden


Pagoda Red mixes antique pieces from Asia with newer pieces by contemporary artists, which means there’s always something to discover, like this vibrant vase. Persimmon gooseneck vase, $780, at Pagoda Red
