Spring Forward With These Spring Trends
After a seemingly long winter, we eagerly open our windows to allow sunlight and fresh air into our homes. The snow has finally melted and we can see green grass once again. At this time of year we typically turn our attention outdoors to our gardens and patios, but don’t forget about the inside as well.
Spring is the perfect time to undergo ‘spring cleaning’ - eliminating clutter and giving your home a fresh look. Whether you are looking for a complete transformation or simply a fresh coat of paint, you will find the top design trends for spring right here.
Navy Blue Interiors
Navy blue is considered a top colour for 2017. This moody colour creates an indefinite modern, fresh feel to the room of your choice. Use navy blue to reupholster your couch or furniture or paint your walls or even your kitchen island. If you are not feeling quite that daring, try incorporating some navy throw pillows on couches or chairs to give your room that trendy touch.
Sometimes the simplest way to give a space a new look is to add an indoor plant. Having a new plant indoors makes your space refreshing and inviting. This may be something your home needs after the long, cold winter.
Swap out silver and gold accessories to incorporate copper accents into your home. According to studies, interest in copper is up 90 percent, and it’s no wonder! You can use copper in your home with statement pieces such as copper vases, light fixtures or flatware.
While marble looks phenomenal in a home, it tends to be quite expensive. Marble wallpaper is a less expensive alternative, and is a recent design trend. Try using it as a stylish accent wall in a room at your home.
Wood Tiling/Natural Wood
Last year, subway tile reigned supreme as a trend. This year, wood tiling and natural wood has taken over. You may be thinking that natural wood has the tendency to look outdated, but if you balance a mixture of the rich colour of wood with modern influences (such as white walls, colourful furnishings), it will still be able to maintain that modern look.
Wood does not have to be dark and traditional. Lighter wood gives space a modern, bright look.
If you are looking to ease into this trend, consider incorporating smaller statement pieces as an effective way to achieve the look.
