2017 – What’s on the Spring Trends Radar?

As surely as the trends change, so does the weather, and the transition from Winter to Spring is no exception.

A slight contrast to our previous blog of all things Hygge, where we introduced elements to combat those cold, long, rainy days; this blog will explore how you can welcome the opportunity to bring the serenity, beauty and tranquillity of the outside into your home, in one of our most favourite seasons, Spring.

2017 COLOUR OF THE YEAR: GREENERY

The global authority of colour, also known as Pantone announced at the beginning of this year, that the “2017 Colour of the Year” is ‘Greenery’ – also described as a “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring, when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew”.

Well – there is simply no better time than to incorporate this soothing colour of the year than now.

Introducing this soft-toned green into some accent pieces in your room is a sure-fire way to chase away the winter blues. The colour signifies nature, is a shade that lifts your spirits while bringing a sense of revitalisation at the same time. Read more about our post earlier this year about this colour here.

A POP OF COLOUR

Pinks and pastels

Soft hues, soothing tones and pastels continue to be relevant this season. But for those of you looking for a little something extra, try incorporating pastel pink! The contrasting accents of blends of pastel pink intertwined with plants or greenery will instantly make a room lively, charming and tasteful.

Florals

The season of Spring is a celebration of nature’s candy, also known as flowers. So if you’re reluctant to let go of your winter velvets and textures, try incorporating a dash of floral into the home. A cushion or piece of artwork can introduce some interest and texture into any room. Get creative. Instead of a cushion with a flower detail, why not find your favourite flower, and display it pressed in a small photo frame?

ARTWORK

Artwork, paintings or photo frames are a great way to keep on trend without the need to replace larger furnishings. It adds a lively and vibrant touch to the home, personality and character, and is also the perfect fix to bringing your house up-to-date for the season, especially if it’s on the market.

This Spring, take full control over your room’s colour story, and invite nature, character, and welcome a vibrant change into your house or home through adopting some of our tips.
