What’s hot this season?
Black & White chic décor
With a minimalist feel, black and white décor is big on the scene with it’s timeless look. Less is more, with a mix of interesting textures; furniture pieces; interior décor finishes and lighting, in tones of Black & White.
Bohemian, a style of anything that goes! But, this time it’s a modern Bohemian look, created by using just a few of your favourites. Your collection can be a mix of: An antique furniture piece; crochet fabrics or hammock; a fading rug; mixed colorful patterned cushions and a mix of green succulents. This is not a look that is “perfect”, so relax and have fun creating it!
The bigger the floral, the better! Florals are a massive hit this year. This pattern has been shown through in the latest wallpapers and fabrics. Be brave on your walls; sofa or even your rug; if you are a bit reserved bring it in on your cushions! For a more hip look, have fun mixing different florals.
We are seeing loads of metallics in interior finishes this season, such as lighting; bathroom finishes and even on furniture pieces. Your most popular metallics to look out for this Spring are: Bronze and Copper
Bring the old back with this beautiful classic! A small touch of marble in a home is very stylish. Marble is making its trend back by been implemented in décor accents such as: Occasional tabletops; candleholders; coasters and clocks.
You can tell a lot by a person by what art they have in a home! More people are investing in art, simply because it is a beautiful element to design, and not only does it tell a story, but most importantly, it is personal. Having a statement art piece in a room can have great impact on the overall décor as well add for good conversation.
Foliage & Flowers
This is a winner in any home for any time of the year! I always like to have a mix of greens or flowers in a home. Not only does this add to a fresh and colorful look to a home, but it is also a good for your mental well-being!
PS: No fake greens or flowers allowed – shop fresh only!
Happy Spring fever, going beyond and routing for a new trendy makeover!
