If you follow fashion, interior design or furnishing trends, with each new season you can expect to see fresh ideas and inspiration. Well, Spring is just around the corner and everyone is wondering what the newest trends in interiors will be! So here’s 5 predictable interior trends to help you get ready for the new season!
1. Pastels & Pinks
Generally when you think of Spring, you think of warm pastel pinks, lavenders and soft greens. This season, these feminine colours will dominate the colour schemes. If you’re worried about the colours being too feminine, try including contrasting colours using furniture or accessories to make a bold statement and provide some balance. Metallics such as golds, bronze and copper paired with pastels is also a lovely touch, but if you want something more understated, whites, oranges and greys work particularly well with these colours.
2. Raw Authenticity
Go for the honest, raw, authentic look, first trended by Haymes Paint. This look embodies the ‘less is more' factor, creating an unfussy style that de-clutters space in favour of simplicity. Typically made of up neutral, natural tones such as browns and creams, these calming colours are perfect for interior accessories and styling. Start with a simple piece of natural furniture and build up textures and colours around it with artwork and accessories.
3. Geometric Patterns
Geometric patterns and graphic art are hanging around for another season. They can make any room go from dull to bold instantly. Easy to find room accessories include rugs and pillow cases. If you find them to be too bold or perhaps you’re over this trend, try more understated patterns and lines as a sophisticated alternative.
4. Colours with Attitude
Over the pastels and neutrals? Why not brighten with daring colours and patterns. Add a bit of attitude to your room, through bold accessories or furniture pieces upcycled in bold designs. Or for the really bold statement, create feature walls with exuberant wallpaper.
5. Spring Cleaning in Small Spaces
Small spaces can be a pain for most homeowners, but they can also be a small blessing in disguise. Generally they offer a catalyst for change where you are forced to de-clutter your space and utilise the space more effectively. This often means incorporating cleaver design ideas. For example, if you want to provide the illusion of a bigger room, hang drapes as high as you can above windows or strategically place a mirror. Invest in smart furniture that also act as storage spaces and use a fool proof neutral colour on the walls to prevent a small space from closing in on itself, unless of course you’re going for a cosy look, then a darker colour will do the trick.
