There are some key trends throughout Spring, which we have listed below, some are seriously wow factor and some are nods towards the trend, either way there’s sure to be something that you feel drawn towards for your own personal space.

Colour

Colour is the easiest thing to change, whether a wall is painted, wallpaper is added, a new sofa is ordered or a lamp re-shaded; colour is the one thing that can dramatically change the appearance of a room.

This Spring sees mustard being the standout seasonal colour of choice, and it works perfectly alongside teal, indigo blue, dusky pink, and the more traditional white.

Mustard can be added to every room to give it a lift, from statement walls in the lounge, to kitchen cupboard doors or crockery, bedroom accessories like bed linen and scatter cushions, to bathroom towels or even shower curtains.  Mustard is as versatile as it is useable.

Still focused on colour, the bathroom is taking an unusual direction, which is to mix and match pastel hues, for example keeping with the mustard theme and painting the roll-top bath, it would then sit magically alongside a dusky pink sink, and deep lush green tiles dotted around the room. Colour is everything this season.

Natural Materials

The one thing that 2019 brings us closer towards is sustainability and this applies in the home too. There are so many natural materials out there that can help to liven up our homes including; cotton, linen, wood, and rope and these materials are becoming more popular year-on-year.

Earthy tones match perfectly against deep, dark rustic wooden units, and if you consider incorporating a traditional paired down Scandi style, then natural materials are a must.

The kitchen is a hive of natural materials from wooden cabinets to marble and granite work tops, this season lends itself to open shelving, so if you are looking to update your kitchen units, the best thing to do is keep it wooden and open the top shelf to showcase your crockery and display items.

Bold and Beautiful

If crockery in the kitchen is the only thing to be replaced this Spring, then florals, pastels, and constellations are the way forward. Bold designs on your new plates and dishes can bring even the calmest of dining tables into a beautiful statement of boldness.

If you’re thinking of going bold throughout the home then you should stick with floral fabrics and floral wallpaper that are strong in statement. Being bold is about being brave with pattern or brave with colour, so if florals are your go to statement then make them big, bold and beautiful.

Here’s to a fabulously designed home this Spring!
