The buds are coming out on the branches, and flowers are pushing up through the soil: spring is finally coming to New York! In a celebration to all things bright and beautiful, here are some shots of Todd Romano's latest windows for his shop, Todd Romano Home on 59th Street.

With walls covered in Bob Collins & Sons Chinese Lattice Cotton Chintz Emerald fabric, a traditional stalwart looks fresh when combined with more traditional antiques. His trad bright fabric and papers, a staple of 1960's and 70's California, is being used by a new crop of design talent today.

The table, an Italian 18th C. Regency Style Painted & Gilt Console, and a Christopher Spitzmiller “Alexander” Lamp in Platinum with a Mahogany Base sits next to decorative objects. When you go upstairs into the showroom, there is a rainbow palette of his lamps to choose from. A set of Six Graduated Triangular Stands hold a pair of Jean Roger Green Glazed Frog Cachepots. The stands have become a signature TR element, they often appear in his rooms.

A Pair of Kelly, Littell and Katavolos “T” Chairs with a Black Leather Sling Seat (which have been sold) add some clean lines to the mix. Small spaces and store windows are so much fun because they add constraints, much like a real interior. Seeing how they can be transformed is inspiring.
