Spring has officially arrived. Gone are the cold, bitter days of winter spent cooped up inside your house dreaming of sunshine and warm weather. Now, you can spend more time outside and open up the windows to let in the fresh air and bask in all of the season’s glory.
But temperatures aren’t the only thing changing this season. Now’s the perfect time to give your space a makeover based on the latest spring home trends.
What better way to embrace change than by encouraging the same for your living space? Here are the 2018 decor trends you should consider following:
According to Elle Decor, marble is the home decor trend to get on top of this year, particularly in shades of green. It can add a classic charm to any room without coming across as too vintage or antique. In fact, it may be considered modern if you execute it correctly. Green marble accessories, in the form of coasters, tiles, pots, end tables, serving boards can make a unique statement throughout your home this spring without going overboard.
Bright colors in the kitchen
Warm colors made the kitchen more cozy and inviting during the winter, but it’s time to shed the layers and make the room pop with the essence of springtime with bright hues. Whether the shades are bold or subtle, loud colors can bring your kitchen back to life this season. This move can make a substantial statement, especially when the room is mostly neutral – complement the white walls and cabinetry with pastel wall art and colorful kitchen accessories.
Bold floral prints
Will floral prints ever go out of style? They’ve been popular for years, and there’s no sign of the craze stopping any time soon. This year, however, florals are considered a more classic design element, rather than a feminine statement, according to Anthropologie customer styling director Christina Frederick.
“Rather than a traditionally feminine look in 2018 they feel especially fresh and more interesting styled in a casual bohemian way,” she told Country Living magazine. “Juxtaposing florals with organic textures and neutral palettes evokes a new kind of elegance that is appealing.”
Consider bold floral prints in your furniture, or complement neutral statement pieces with floral accent decor.
While millennial pink made a big splash last year, lavender is all the rage in 2018, according to Nancy Fire, creative director of HGTV HOME.
“Millennial pink is still around and I still love it, but it’s morphing into lavender and lilac,” she told House Beautiful magazine.
Use lavender accessories and accents to liven up any room this spring. Throw pillows, area rugs, lamp shades and tabletop trinkets in lavender and lilac can make a beautiful and refreshing statement this season. Don’t rule out millennial pink, however. It’s still popular and bound to stick around.
“People were sarcastic about millennial pink at the beginning, but it’s being used to bring out beautiful, soft tones with accents that are deeper,” Fire shared.
It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season change and neglect your home – sometimes it just feels like there simply isn’t enough time during the day to change up the design and decor that defines your space.
