Spring is the time where most people take a good look at their homes and gardens and consider where they can make improvements. While some will be satisfied with a spring clean, other people will be looking for a more substantial change. Let’s take a look at these 4 trendy interior updates for spring that we have picked for you:
- Bright colours
Pantone, the official authority on trending colours, has predicted a number of popular shades for this year. Our favourites include:
- scuba blue;
- aquamarine; and
- treetop green.
You’ll see these colours throughout interior design stores and homeware shops. If the home accessories you have at the moment are looking tired or you just fancy a change, find some replacements in these fashionable colours. Look for cushions, throws, rugs, pictures, bed linen, towels and any other items. However, if you want to make a bolder change, you may wish to consider a new coat of paint or wallpaper. A feature wall in a vibrant colour like tangerine or treetop green would be very eye-catching.
- Updated lighting
People tend not to change their lighting decor very often. However, an updated fixture can significantly improve the overall look and ambience of any room. Have a look at your current lighting decor in each room. Do any of your fixtures that look dated or worn out and could do with being replaced?
Statement pendant lights are a major trend in lighting design for this year (and we predict years to come). They look fabulous regardless of whether the light is on or off. There are many options for style – multi-bulb, globe, contemporary and classic – so you’ll have plenty to choose from. The Jeremiah Lighting Company have a good selection of pendant, and other lighting designs, which you may wish to browse.
- Simple window treatments
When it comes to your windows, it’s all about less is more this summer and spring. If you currently have dark or busy materials around your windows, you may wish to strip these back and allow the light to flood through clean and pure windows. This trend doesn’t mean your windows should look sterile or sparse. Sheer materials, freshly painted window frames and windowsill greenery will leave them looking simple but elegant.
- Updated bathrooms
Bathrooms tend to be purely functional rooms that we don’t spend an awful lot of time in. However, in recent times, interior designers have experimented with layout and furnishings in an attempt to encourage more and better use of these rooms.
You may wish to update your bath tub. Vintage style free-standing baths look fabulous and inviting in any bathroom. Wicker seating and a vanity table would also make a lovely addition, if you have room to play with. Luxurious towels and mats will also make your bathroom more appealing.
Whether you decide to focus on one area of your home or a number of sections, your overall mission should be to update and brighten things up for the spring and summer.
