A deep cleaning of your home isn’t the only way to usher in spring. It might also be time to peel back those winter layers and give your home a fresh new look with some on-trend décor and design.
Get in the spring of things with this season’s hot new trends.
If you can’t get enough gingham, enjoy the black-and-white look, or are heralding the return of fringe, you’re in luck. These are just a few of the styles that are in for spring, says HGTV.
There’s no need to go traditional with the classic check print.
“To put a gender-neutral spin on gingham, choose a feminine color such as pink or coral for tailored upholstery and use chrome nail heads,” said HGTV. “The combination will create a menswear-inspired look that’s also female-friendly.”
The flirty look that’s all over the runway is also a designer’s favorite element for spring. Elle Décor used a Proenza Schouler runway as inspiration for a “multicolored fringe wall hanging.” Fringe is also popping up in carpet borders and pendant lighting.
3. Black and white
“The classic color combination makes any room – from bathrooms to bedrooms – sophisticated, chic, and timeless,” said House Beautiful.
Whether you use it on the floors, the walls, for bedding, for a backsplash, or a smattering of accessories, black and white brings interest and glam potential.
4. Oversize art
Forget the gallery. For spring it’s all about statement pieces.
“Just as we were starting to perfect the Tetris-like picture placement of gallery walls, oversize art has become the wall statement du jour,” said POPSUGAR. “Supersized paintings, blowup photographs, and gargantuan art of every sort are dominating huge swaths of walls to stunning effect.”
POPSUGAR also loves the shibori print, a “tie-dye-esque look (that) is growing rapidly, jumping from pillows and bedspreads to curtains and rugs.”
Shibori is a Japanese technique “that typically involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing it in indigo,” said Design Sponge. “Whatever is used to bind the fabric will resist the dye, resulting in areas of the cloth that take the distinctive blue dye in patterns created by the resistance, and other areas of the cloth that remain white.” Check out some DIY shibori techniques here.
