The signs of early spring bring excitement and wonder to the soul of our hearts and the design potential within our homes. The spring naturally drives our focus from the heaviness of winter to the brightness of spring. The following spring design trends will get you started with inspiration, transforming your home one room at a time with a few key design elements in mind.
Infusing color might be the easiest way to transform your home but does not always have to begin with your walls. Color can be brought in through art and accessories, fabrics, window treatments or flooring.
Soft and tranquil neutrals such as Pantone’s 2016 Color(s) of the Year: Serenity and Rose Quartz have dominated color trends this year. They invite relaxation and a breath of fresh air to our stress-filled lives, a way of living that we all desire. Recognizing that these palettes may not represent every style Pantone has also complemented this palette with color groupings that expand the range for a broader appeal with the introduction of their 2017 Pantone View Home + Interiors palettes. In other words, personalization of your home is what really matters so choose your colors!
Art & Accessories
“Rescue is the new buzzword that is replacing recycling and handcrafted and raw materials are seeing a resurgence,” according to Color Expert Lee Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
Also, updating your accessories can brighten up a space in seconds. New art, accessories and floral’s bring a fresh and inviting look to your room instantly.
Fabrics & Wallpaper
Replacing outdated furniture styles with new or updating outdated fabric with new upholstery can work wonders in creating a fresh look. New window treatments that honor and shape the exterior view while allowing a good dose of natural light are also winners in my opinion.
Color in kitchen appliances is trending in ranges, cook tops and ranges.
Hardwood flooring continues to lead flooring trends in new home trends and kitchens according to NKBA.
Most importantly, start with a design plan to ensure that each decorating project builds towards the outcome you desire. This approach will keep the ‘happy’ in your spring design endeavors!
