Spring Interior Trends to Freshen Up Your Home
We’ve made it, it’s officially spring(!), and if you’re anything like us, you’ve been waiting for the day you can switch your candles from pungent winter spice to light and aromatic floral notes and banish those heavy throws into a storage cupboard for the next six months.
If the changing of the seasons has brought on the urge to zhoosh up your interiors while remaining bang on trend, then read on. We’ve shared some top tips to keep your home looking fresh and fabulous this spring/summer season.
Yellow and grey
Pantone named two colours as its shades of the year for 2021 – Illuminating and Ultimate Gray. The bright yellow and pale grey hues blend together effortlessly and leave an opportunity to work in a whole palette of accompanying colours like pastel pink, brilliant white and contrasting black, creating the perfect spring vibe.
Distant shores are living rent free in most of our brains right now, so why not introduce them into your home as well? Let your space reflect your travels from years gone by as well as your ambitions to fly far away when restrictions allow.
Inspired by earthy shades, which are another trendy feat to consider incorporating into your home, the global influence trend goes perfectly with additional detail like wooden and woven accessories, as well as natural textures.
Think about the inclusion of ocean blue influences as a way of capturing relaxing pool sides and beach getaways and emulating them in your home. This will offer a calm and contemporary look and positive memories of previous summer trips.
As the weather starts to pick up, you might want to think about introducing some warmer and more playful colours to your interior style. Shades like burnt orange, peacock blue and jewel purple are really welcoming in sunnier months and pair well with the more earthy tones mentioned above, adding depth and dimension to your design.
Pink bathrooms and kitchens also seem to be emerging in more modern homes, making the more traditionally pared back locations that little bit more warm and cheerful, why not give that a go?
Most of us have had to adapt to being at home more often than not over the past twelve months, so features like home offices and gyms have become a must. Make your adaptation a focal point where you can with comfort and creative inspiration around your office space by way of artwork or patterned wallpaper, and emphasis on space, screens and speakers to maximise your workout space.
The idea of making our bedrooms a substitute boutique hotel getaway has resulted in headboards becoming more of a star feature. Consider a bright and cheerful colour and pattern here, and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone with new and exciting shapes and textures – it’ll only add more character to your overall look.
Speaking of character, maximalism is having a moment, meaning you can be as outlandish as you like with your interior design and remain on trend and stylish. Decorate every free surface and patch of blank wall space to your heart’s content and make it as personal as you’d like – you do you!
The addition of plants around the house is not a new trend, but it’s also not going anywhere anytime soon. Aside from promoting wellness in the home, they add a sense of bringing the outside in, which we could all do with a bit more of as we enter a new season. From retro hanging creepers to beautiful blooms, there’s sure to be a plant to suit your style and space so do some research to find the one that’s right for you – there’s plenty of inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest if you’re struggling!
