Top home décor trends for spring
Winter is over and while you’re thawing out, take a look at what’s on the way in spring décor.
This is the year of purple since Pantone announced Ultra Violet 18-3838 as their official colour of the year. Winter shades of violet and plum will be replaced by a more mellow lilac and mauve for spring. Add a few details, like Target’s lavender peonies canvas or some mauve bed sheets from David Jones, to keep your home updated for spring without going overboard.
Tropical and bold floral prints
Florals are a staple of spring, but this year they’ve had a reboot. Expect bold, vibrantly-coloured details that pop against a simple background. Tropical prints have made a comeback, so get ready to see palm leaves, hibiscus and fruit in every homewares store. Quilt covers like Myer’s Lamora cover will refresh your home for the warmer months without breaking the budget.
Marble has had its day, with spring home décor trends forecasting stone, terrazzo and quartz as the new heavy-duty home accent. Stone details in lamps, tables and functional homewares will add a feeling of earthy sophistication to an otherwise minimalist room. Stone accents are a no brainer in the bathroom and kitchen, but continue the theme in your living room and bedroom with Kmart’s terrazzo base lamp and Target’s agate bookend.
Hanging and draping plants are everywhere for spring. With so many of us moving into apartments and smaller living spaces, these plants add some lush, outdoor touches without cramping up your space. Place some faux hanging ivy from Kmart on top of book shelves and cupboards for a bit of life in your house that will never die.
Mirrors, silver and monochrome glam are back again but with a modern take. Bold art deco pieces against a minimalist backdrop will be popular this spring. Fill up your house with pieces like Target’s art deco standing mirror and David Jones’ luxe Celeste chair for some eye-catching décor statements. Bejewelled cushions from Myer will also do the trick and dress up any room.
