As the days begin to lengthen and the sun comes out of hiding, many take the sun’s inspiration to revamp their homes to welcome the spring and summer season.
So if you’re looking for interior inspiration this spring but are unsure as to what’s new, what’s next and what’s over, we’ve pulled together a few key trends and ideas for the season ahead to get your creative juices following.
Bringing the outdoors in…
As the days get warmer and longer, we are encouraged to bring the outdoors in. Whether it’s furniture or fauna, capitalize on this trend with plant life inspired items and furniture that works both inside and out. If you don’t have green fingers you can always fake it with some beautiful man made flowers or decorations.
Pink is the new white. We’re not referring to the bold fuchsias but more soft pinks such as Rose Quartz and Orchard Pink. Powder pinks, smoky greys, willow green and sky blue will all make a big impression in 2016 as many opt for cooler and softer colour choices.
Alternatively, buck the pale trend and go bold with a statement yellow. Sunshine, daffodils and gold, yellow is one of the most cheerful colors of all. If it’s a bit bold for you, you could tread-cautiously and add carefully-chosen yellow accessories such as cushions, plan pots or artwork. Alternatively, just go for it with larger statement pieces or wallpaper.
Gone are the days of having to choose between silver or all gold in a room., now it’s popular to mix them up. Just a touch of glimmering metal can make a space instantly more glamorous. Gold, Rose Gold, Copper, and Bronze bring to mind mid century opulence, while chrome and silver add a touch of modern sleekness. These textures are particularly effective in the bathroom and kitchen space, metallic tones and textures will continue to dominate in. However, some do question is there such a thing as ‘too much’ when it come to decorating with shiny things? We don’t believe there is!
With Spring 2016 offering plenty of variety and exciting new ideas, we may have got you considering even bigger changes. If the projects you’re planning are slightly grander than a quick home refresh, you may want to consider a short term self storage unit rental to project your belongings against damage. If you do, you know who to turn to.
