As you plan your colors for your renovations or spring updates, do you find yourself looking around? Are you wondering what new styles or colors are coming our way? You probably want to stay on top of the trends rather than bring home new décor that is already on it’s way out the door…
I love new trends. I love seeing what is around the corner in the home decor department! So, I have done my homework for you. As you go spring décor shopping, hopefully you will have a better idea on what to bring home… and what should be left on the shelves at the store.
The design trends forcast
It was thought that colors may be warming up, which they are to some degree. But it seems that walls have gotten whiter, with woods and color accents actually being the ones to bring in most of our warmth. Think early 90’s with burgundy, emerald greens and deep turquioises, and don’t forget the golds along with natural woods and whites. Black and white along with warm greys have made a full come back. A bohemian feel is still going strong, and florals with blush and soft blues are still soft and lovely.
It seems we definelty have a mix of the 60’s,70’s and 80’s that are enterwined with our 90’s styles. It is quite similar to last years trends (check out my post here) with even more of a clean contrast this spring.
How can you apply this to your own home without spending a lot to tie these new trends into your home decor?
- Paint your walls a soft white and your trim to blend
- Add decor accents in your favorite rich colors such as golds, emerald greens, deep turquiose, soft blues and/or blushes. When choosing your color accents, choose ones that suit your style, your home and your taste.
- Tropical feeling plants seem to be on trend
- Farmhouse is absolutly still going strong. So keep your shiplap but keep your farmhouse feeling cleaner and fresher with greenery and florals
- Black accents are big whether its in your floor, or painted on a wall, or as your metal accents
- Add an area rug always! This always is a great way to add texture and a pop of your accent colors.
- Bold walls are in. Busy wallpaper in a small powder room or a laundry room look great if your flooring isn’t too busy. You can paint rich colors on your wall. I personally have a difficult time painting a whole room burgandy like we did back in the 90’s, so maybe just a feature wall or a special bedroom or den can afford a rich color like that. Otherwise stick to fresh light neutrals in your main areas and get your pop of colors from your accent pieces such as art, pillows, throws and area rugs or even florals. Floral accent walls look great in just the right room, and then tie it in with a cute chair like this one;
What is your favorite accent color for this season? I bought myself a couple of golden yellow pillow covers to brighten up my warm grey living room. They just make me happy:). Not bad for a $14 update, hey?
