What are the trends in interiors this spring? As winter finally loosens its grip, there are a few major influences that will be felt everywhere – some of them quite surprising.
Who thought we’d see macrame, tufting, fringes and other decorative effects making a return? Yet the hottest interior designers are busy embellishing their soft furnishings, in what looks like a reaction to the cool minimalism we’ve seen so much of in the last few years. These finishes give a homely, slightly boho feel to interiors. And for keen crafters, they’re a great opportunity to add homemade touches to the house.
Glittery floors, gold and silver
Not for everyone, it has to be said. Although glitter helps to cheer up a gloomy winter, by mid-summer it may be looking slightly tawdryOTT and you may wish you’d gone for something a bit more classic.
Wooden floors don’t have to be dull – take a look at what an engineered flooring company can offer https://www.woodfloorwarehouse.co.uk/engineered-flooring.html and think about putting down a darker floor that will look great underneath a rug with some silver or gold tones in it. For the seriously stylish, Houzz is recommending gold as the accent colour for Spring.
For those attached to their calming beiges and greys, colour pops are still a must. Cushions, throws and lampshades can all be replaced cheaply to give an instant uplift to a neutral background colour scheme.
