When it comes down to interior design, there’s no better time to start exploring new trends than the beginning of spring. Whether it’s renovating your living room or replacing your kitchenware, the changing of the seasons makes room for new beginnings. In this guide, we’ll look at some of the hottest interior trends of the season – and decide which ones to replace, too.
Incoming trends for Spring
1. Open-plan living
As soon as the clocks go forward with Daylight Saving Time, we start to enjoy more sunlight – particularly later in the day. This provides the perfect opportunity to invite natural light into your home, so why not incorporate an airy, open-plan living area?
It could be time to visit your local furniture store and explore options to create an inspiring, brighter living space. If your current furniture feels imposing or creates barriers between important parts of the room, swap it out to help you connect and collaborate with your family.
2. Shades of green
From Farrow & Ball to hand-mixed, improvised shades, using green paint is one of the biggest colour trends of the season. Earthy and versatile, it’s possible to mix greens with dark blues to create a base accent in any room, highlighted by gold or silver hues.
If you’re stuck for ideas, you’ll find plenty of green interior trends to browse through. Whether you fill an entire room with a single, perky light green shade or opt for a statement dark green door, there’s so many ways to make a nod to natural foliage in your home.
3. Wabi-sabi living
If you prefer a relaxed atmosphere, adopting the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi might prompt you to make peace with imperfections and be more intentional with your décor.
In any busy family household, it’s important not to steer too close to perfectionism. Centred around living with humility and accepting the natural order of things, learning about wabi-sabi could help you to embrace the imperfect and focus on enjoying quality time spent at home.
With slightly clinical tones, no one wants to be greeted by an almost blinding, brilliant-white bedroom or living area. Soft colours or neutral tones with feature walls are much more effective in creating a relaxing, welcoming environment for you and your visitors.
2. Non-functional objects
In a practical era, designers and stylists now prefer to see useful everyday objects – with a touch of personality – replacing decorative features that lack meaning. Clever storage solutions, carefully incorporated with a matching paint scheme, work well instead.
Whether you go ahead with redecorating the living room or a much larger renovation project, with these tips you’ll be ready to go and create something extraordinary.
