Well, the daffodils are just starting to poke their heads through the soil so that can mean only one thing spring is here!
I always think about freshening up the home at this time of year, especially when there are such fabulous trends around, so if you’re planning to do the same but are in need of a little inspiration then read on.
Choosing what colour to go for can often be the most difficult decision to make when decorating a room, but whether you’re talking about the walls, fabrics or flooring, the hottest colours this season are undoubtedly purples and browns. From intense aubergines and chocolates to subtle lilacs and wheats, there’s a shade to suit all tastes and all styles of home. Which one will you choose?
If we’re being honest, when you think of brown few people would consider it a colour that makes a statement in the home, but the right shade can really lift a room. Flooring in rich chocolate and chestnut hues not only brings warmth and depth to a room, but also provides a focal point as the eye is drawn to the strong colour. Whether you go for a laminate or opt for a carpet, the result is the same, so you can apply the concept to any style of house. Maximise the impact of the flooring by teaming it with pale walls.
The beauty of this colour trend is that it lends itself well to wood and laminate flooring. It’s really easy to maintain and the clean lines look great in both contemporary and traditional settings. Although popular in lounges and hallways, wood and laminate is used less often in the bedroom, but I think it looks fabulous here. Add a rug by the side of the bed so you have something warm and soft to sink your toes in to first thing in the morning.
If you want to keep up with the trends, but want a
softer look then a good option would be to go for paler
shades such as wheat, stone or cappuccino.
These lighter colours look especially stunning in a living room or dining room as they really brighten the area. You can always add a bolder accent colour if you want to be a little more daring by painting a wall in a darker shade or accessorising with a rug, curtains or cushions.
I love this plush carpet. The strong colour makes an instant impression as you enter the room, but what’s more, it’s brilliant at hiding stains so perfect for a dining room.
Lilacs, lavenders and mauves create an impression of space and light so are ideal for smaller homes or rooms that don’t get any sun. The current trend is to team a stronger purple with a more subtle shades throughout the whole room.
Personally, I adore this look, but if you think that would be too much colour for you, try combining white walls
with a purple carpet
for a fresh,
spring feel.
Add a touch of spring to a room with this lovely lavender carpet. Maximise the impact of its beautiful colour by teaming it with pale walls.
Of course, if you don’t want to redecorate your room you can still keep up with the latest interior design trends by accessorising. Changing your curtains and adding cushions and a rug in the hottest hues will instantly update the look of the room without breaking the bank. If you have a fairly neutral room, I’d opt for a deep regal plum rug with coordinating drapes.
These gorgeous hand-tufted rugs have an elegantly embossed pile that feels glorious underfoot.
