How To Fake Spring In Your Apartment Right Now

We think T.S. Eliot might have got it wrong. February is the cruelest month. We're stuck inside, and there's no end to the brown, sleety-snowy mix in sight. We make excuses to not go out and be normal social people. Instead, we swipe and click and watch from our sofas, like little winter zombies. The situation is bleak, and perhaps you'll agree — we need some interior eye candy, pronto.

So, we're faking spring. Yes, we're cheating and bringing it in early — in the form of earthy vases, pink washcloths, robin's-egg-blue pendant lamps, and striped pillowcases. I mean, the new spring things are available, so why not start early? Ahead, all the happiest, softest, most colorful home buys that will cheer you up, guaranteed. There's even a squeaky bunny toy for your slightly depressed BFF.
