Spring has officially sprung. Even if your region hasn’t seen the warmth quite yet, set your sights on sunny days by giving your home decor a splash of spring style.
It’s the season of new beginnings, so why not get started off on the right foot by incorporating some on-trend decor to your nest. Try out these top decorating trends for spring 2016:
A touch of matte
Metallic was very in last year, but the pendulum is swinging the other way this spring, according to House Beautiful. Shiny gold, silver and copper accents sparkle, but if you really want to give your home a modern look this season, opt for items with matte finishes, like those sporting chalk-like paint, in soft, neutral tones. Add touches of matte anywhere in your home, from an understatedly elegant hanging lamp to a soft white pot for an indoor plant. Don’t toss your metallic items, though – the source noted that metallics pair just beautifully with matte.
Bold patterns – they’re in this spring.
Matte may be subdued, but not all your spring tones have to keep quiet. Bold patterns are also very in this season, according to Architectural Digest. Go for bold, multicolored designs on rugs, throw pillows, blankets and curtains – choose whatever pattern type energizes you the most, whether that’s angular geometric design or swooping, artful brushstrokes. If you’re more of a timid type when it comes to patterns, dip your toes in the trend by just choosing one patterned piece – say, the pillows on your sofa – and keeping the rest of the room neutral.
Color: iced coffee
Love to refresh your rooms when the seasons change, but don’t want to spend a fortune switching everything out each year? The solution may be painting your walls in this Iced Coffee shade, according to Elle Design. The soft, neutral shade – code 15-1040 TCX – is one of Pantone’s spring 2016 colors, and is a great backdrop because it pairs well with almost every design scheme. Sure, it may cost you a little more than your Starbucks run, but consider it an investment in keeping your home always in-style.
Marble is in this year, according to House Beautiful, with its classy, modern air. If you’re worried about this look breaking the bank, don’t be, noted the source, since the trend works well in small accents, like coasters and clocks.
