As spring blossoms outside we freshen up inside with new décor to suit the sunnier and warmer days ahead. The natural elements of the outdoors inspires our interior design indoors. And although it may still be cold and a little grey outside, we can see the better days on the horizon and we’re preparing for them in our home. Florals and bright colours are a given when it comes to redecorating your home in spring, ground breaking right? But, at Meadows & Byrne we reveal 5 interior design trend secrets that you may not have guessed or known. Read below for some advice on what to introduce to your home this spring season.
In 2016 we loved brass, but the new year brings a new us and now we’re loving copper. By introducing accents of copper in to your home, you’re making a statement. Copper brings a sense of glamour to your interiors, with such minimal effort. Copper is such a natural material and fabulous colour that it’ll suit any room in any home.
Blue is often seen as being a cold colour. But, if you get the right shade and mix it with the right colours it can look warm and inviting. We like to mix blue with shades of whites, oranges and pinks and materials like cork. Jewel like shades of blue can be rich and luxurious and can create a real statement. So be brave and be fabulous with blue this season.
Art Deco oozes glamour and this spring we’re feeling inspired by the 1920’s look. Think about The Great Gatsby; beauty, luxury, soft shapes, mirrored surfaces, marble, metals and plush velvets. Art Deco is also known as Style Moderne and it is a style that we never fall out of love with. Having a little or a lot in your home is nothing but a good thing this season.
The Danish way of living became popular in the winter and it certainly isn’t going anywhere now that the days are getting warmer and longer. Hygge is still trending this season and for good reason. We still like to feel cosy in the evenings at this time of year, but instead of being indoors why not try it outdoors? By having copious amounts of throws, cushions and hot chocolates you can bring the indoors out and have a lovely evening beneath the stars.
Seeing as Pantone’s colour of the year is Greenery it would be rude not to have it on our homes this season. Bright zesty green’s are on trend this season in our interiors. We like to think of it as bringing nature from the outside and giving it a home inside. This can be done in many ways, think coloured soft furnishings like cushions and throws, dinnerware, vases and candle holders. And, also think of the natural greenery itself, plants and flowers. These features instantly brighten and freshen up a room and can often provide a beautiful scent around the home. If you don’t have green fingers, don’t worry, at Meadows & Byrne we have a range of faux-plants that will give the look of fresh, luscious greenery in your home without the hassle of watering.
So, when choosing new interiors for your home this season think fresh, bright and natural.
