As the year begins to brighten up, and the short days come to an end, you might feel it appropriate to update your home through adding the seasons latest trend. From the in style items of furniture to the hot colours for spring, check out our ideas below.
‘In’ colours are often dependent on what the weather outside is going to be like, and as the warmth of spring and summer kicks in, shades of red and blue are hugely popular. The Pantone colour of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid, but if this particular shade of purple isn’t your cup of tea, then Cayanne, Radiant Blue and Placid Blue are three of our favourites from this year’s colour of the year shortlist. Most spring decorating ideas are inspired by characteristics of the growth and blooming feel of the season. As March rolls in, we begin to see nature waking up after the cold and baron winter, so incorporating this into your home means that everything has a nice, fresh and colourful feel.
Incorporate them in the dining room
It’s important to push your boundaries when it comes to incorporating spring features, however your dining room is an area that, we imagine, you’ll use mainly for entertaining.
It can be tricky getting a dining area right, as it needs to impress guests, but also function as a usable room. Getting a statement wooden table often works when furnishing your dining area, as it’s going to be the most used area of the room – from eating with company to sitting back and enjoying after meal wines. If you’re wanting to incorporate spring into your dining area, decorative elements that come in fresh and bright colours are ideal. Curtains play important role in decoration as well as the accessories and tablecloth, so opt to mix these new items with this season’s colours.
Make the most of them in your living room
The chances are that when it comes to relaxation time, you’ll predominately spend it in the living room. Items like sofas are too expensive and large to update with the seasonal trends, however additions such as pillows and throws can easily be replaced to get your room more in tune with 2014 style. Emerald Green is a very popular style option this spring, and adding artwork, curtains and accessories of this shade can have a stunning visual impact.
It can be tricky to incorporate new trends in a living room, as you want to give off a feel of the room being both cosy, but also visually impressive to guests, so make sure you tinker until you get it perfect.
So, this is our initial advice when it comes to revamping the feel of your home for spring. Make sure you keep an eye out for suture posts on this topic, and if you have any of your own advice, make sure you let us know about it.
