Fresh Season, Fresh New Look: The 10 Best Spring Colours for Your Home

Spring is in the air and do you know what that calls for? No, not Spring cleaning… a Spring renovate! Choosing from the most beautiful Pantone colour trends for Spring 2014, I think you will be amazed at how a pop of colour or an array of neutral tones in your home will bring renewed life to your living space.

Designers and decorators are embracing a modern twist to the traditional Spring palette by combining romantic pastels with vivid hues, creating a colourful harmonic palette. A beautiful combination, which works perfectly with the nature of Spring.

Placid Blue

Starting at the calm and tranquil end of the colour palette is Placid Blue. Found in nature, we are all accustomed that this shade of blue is found as a background colour in nature, making it a perfect neutral background colour in your home.

Violet Tulip

Bringing nostalgia and a hint of vintage feminine style to a room, Violet Tulip is  beautiful as a stand-alone colour or one that harmonises well with the rest of the colour palette. Paired with Freesia, Violet Tulip’s energetic opposite, in this Spring inspired living room, adds vibrancy to a warm grey base.

Hemlock is a wonderful ornamental green. Excellent as a neutral background colour, I find this colour works so well in kitchens.

Toasty, neutral and warming, Sand will accompany any colour as neutral, bringing a sensation of comfort to your home. Try it with a bold bright colour such as Cayenne or Dazzling Blue to bring a bit of pop to your room.

This soft grey will go with almost anything. It speaks comfort and style and its neutral base makes it the perfect backdrop for bright hues, such as this Freesia canvas.

This is one of my favourite colours at the moment. Rich and spicy, if you want energy to exude in the room, use this colour as dominant wall feature, or pair it with a neutral in splashes through out the room for a more subtle look.

Nothing feels more like Spring than the hues of yellow. Freesia will illuminate your room. Fantastic in sun rooms and kitchens, Freesia works well with Sand and Paloma.

The word sounds like a warm tropical island. Use it to bring positive energy and sophistication to a room. Pair it with its opposite on the colour wheel, Placid Blue or Dazzling Blue to complement each other beautifully and chase away the last remnants of winter.

Radiant Orchid

Energising and romantic, this illuminating colour will enchant with its boldness. We just love how these velvet chairs pop against the rustic backdrop in this setting.

Dazzling Blue

Such a gorgeous colour! Popular on the catwalk, the last colour in the Spring Pantone collection is unmistakably a favourite of many designers and decorators. Electric on its own, use for a feature wall or simply splash using cushions and unique pieces.
