Step into warmer weather with a spring in your step by trying out these stunning interior ideas
With the dark days of winter behind us, spring has finally arrived like a breath of fresh air. There’s no better time to enjoy some of your favourite springtime activities like a woodland walk, a picnic in the park or christening the barbeque for the first time in 2019. But there is also no better time to transform your home.
After all, spring is all about new beginnings and fresh starts, and your home is no exception. That’s why we’re here to take you through some of the most exciting trends in interior design this season. Get inspired and try out some of your favourites in your home.
A range of textures
We tend to think of cushions, throws and covers as a staple of winter home décor, but spring is also a great time to celebrate all things cosy. Introducing a range of textures into your home adds both depth and interest, treating your sense of touch as well as your eyes.
When we think of spring, we think of shades of green. So what better time to try and be a little greener with your home design? Sustainability is a trend which isn’t going anywhere, and more and more big names are now offering sustainable and environmentally friendly kitchen staples to literally give your home a new lease of life.
70s Scandi chic
70s Scandi pairs the scaled back appeal of minimalism with the warmth of bohemian design, creating a fun and exciting look which is instantly reminiscent of carefree spring days. Think earthy colour palettes, geometric prints and natural materials.
Mustard hues are the new go-to colour for the warmer months, adding a bold, refreshing burst of colour into our living spaces. This unique, versatile shade works beautifully alongside tones like teal, indigo and millennial pink.
Mix and match patterns
Just as mixing textures adds depth, pairing together patterns adds excitement and luxury. This is a great way to embrace a sense of frivolity this spring, by piecing together a room pattern by pattern. From wall art to rugs to curtains, think of the space of a blank canvas on which to work your magic.
We all want our homes to feel light and airy in the spring, and open shelving provides necessary storage without feeling claustrophobic. Display your items proudly and treat them like décor, adding even more personality to the room.
Since its inception in the 20th century, mid-century design has never gone out of style. From sleek lines and tapered legs to industrial elements and understated simplicity, this school of interior design is all about quality over quantity. Try mixing different shapes together to create the ideal flow.
As Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2019, Living Coral is a shade that feels both energising and luxurious. It’s not too far away from some of the more neutral shades people tend to go for, but its chalky warmth can really add something special. This is a great way to give a nautical vibe without automatically opting for blue hues.
Speaking of nautical vibes, scalloped furniture is another hot trend, offering playful and yet endless stylish seating options. Not only does this quirky furniture style hark back to the opulence of Art Deco, but it’s also super comfortable.
From tables and chairs to shutters and shelving, unfinished woods offer a natural, eco-friendly vibe which pairs well with dark tiles and leafy houseplants. Well-made pieces also bring a sense of luxury, while making your home feel cool in every sense as the weather heats up.
