Spring goes hand in hand with a fresh start, so it is a great month to update your interior and refresh your furniture and home accessories. This spring’s interior design trends are all about creating drama and being bold with colour.
Light wood tones are back in fashion and natural, earthy colours take centre stage. Light and fresh, they will help your interior feel open and elegant. The softer blend of natural wood and honey coloured tones will soften designs and keep furniture from feeling heavy. 2014 is all about bringing elements of the outdoors inside the home, so look for wooden furniture pieces that are rustic in character and appearance and are filled with natural history. Reclaimed wood furniture is an ideal choice for this and the high quality timbers will create a showpiece that will last for generations.
Ethnic fabrics and upholstery is popular this spring and will make your home look exotic and authentic. Look for printed cushions and wall art that is interesting and adds colour to your decor.
Floral designs and chintz is a growing trend, especially with vintage inspired interior schemes. Add floral cushions, curtains and decorative accessories to create a softer and more romantic interior. Don’t be afraid to introduce florals and patterns that aren’t completely harmonised; this spring moves away from matchy -matchy interiors.
2014 sees the rise of hair on hide. Upholstered hide dining chairs, stools and occasional seating are very on trend and will create an interesting focal point in any room. Cowhide is making a very big appearance this 2014 and is available in a variety of designs and colours.
It’s a teal affair this spring with neutral greys and beiges being left in the background. Teal, navy and plum are perfect colour choices for your soft furnishings and blend well with other colours and a multitude of styles. Look for cushions and throws in rich, luxurious fabrics such as velvet, suede and corduroy. These fabrics are sophisticated and durable and will work well with the darker colour schemes that are proving popular.
Add glamour and drama to your home and introduce metallic accessories. This is a much loved trend right now and darker wall colours are a perfect backdrop for silvers, nickel, aluminium and gold decorative accessories. If you’re really feeling adventurous then try a combination of silver and gold for a very trendy look.
