Like most New Yorkers this time of year, your winter boots have probably sprung a leak or two, and your puffer coat may be a little battered. And with so many cold evenings spent indoors, chances are your home is looking a little worse for the wear, too. But spring’s just around the corner — really! — so why not seize the opportunity to turn over a new leaf? From a colorful rug to a bold, party-ready cocktail table, these chic items will help you welcome the season with warmth and style.

Go blue

Jonathan Adler’s lacquer Polly Cocktail Table is bright, blue and “full of moxie.” It’s also super-functional: Each layer spins independently, increasing its surface area as needed. $1,250;

Grass act

Cute and clever, Sod, a dish drying rack from Finell, brings a touch of nature — and whimsy — to a tired countertop. $160;

Fly paper

Colorful yet muted, Eskayel’s Jangala Citron wallpaper conjures a tropical beach at sunset. $475 per roll;

Morning glory

Marimekko’s iconic Unikko pattern — consisting of colorful oversized poppies — marks its Golden Jubilee. Celebrate in style with the Unikko 50th Anniversary mug and bring some sunshine to your breakfast table. $20;

Light it up

The Torroja Cross Chandelier by David Weeks Studio pays homage to Madrid’s Zarzuela Hippodrome. The sculptural, practical piece is fully customizable; the number and length of tiers are up to you. From $5,000;

Floor show

Inspired by flowers but decidedly un-floral, Katie Ridder’s Gigi rug — part of Studio Four NYC’s Designer Rug Collection — is a simple, snazzy way to freshen up a stale living room. From $4,400;
