Top Spring Home Trends 2017
Wondering how to give your home décor an affordable refresh for Spring? Here are the top Spring Home Trends for 2017 that anyone can easily use to add some new life to your space!
Bright Colors and Mixing Patterns
Mixing patterns is all the rage in fashion right now and the trend bleeds over into home décor so don’t be afraid to mix a bold floral print tablecloth with checkered napkins and a textured runner in bright coordinating colors.
The best way to brighten your house – and mood – for Spring is by adding the pantone color of the season “Greenery” and mixing in the still trending colors in blue hues or bright pops of color!
Punch up your living room by adding a brightly colored footstool and pillows. Homegoods Upholstered Footstool $59 / Pillows $19
Design Tip: Quick and easy changes like these don’t have to be expensive, you can get just a few new accessories or pillows for your bedroom or living room for just $10-$25 or add some new plates and placemats to your kitchen for $2-$4 each.
Texture and Copper
Copper is the hot metallic of the year! Treat yourself to a new set of copper flatware to up your table game or add some geometric copper framed glass terrariums to the center of your dining table to bring the fresh green of summer inside. Homegoods Copper Flatware Set of 4 – $59 / Geometric Terrariums $12-$16
Mixing in pieces with a lot of texture like pillows and throws or stone or handcrafted ceramic pieces gives your space a unique personality with a lot more dimension and interest.
Design Tip: Imperfect is Perfect! The key to mixing styles is to make sure there is a thread of something in common in the pieces you are trying to bring together. Use similar base color tones or metallics, or look for similar shapes or forms in the pieces you are mixing… Pieces with a common thread will work great together even if they are traditional mixed with industrial!
Note to Self
Typographic design is still big in design so surround yourself with great “notes to yourself” in your pillows and artwork. It can be a great way to keep some positive reminders in your daily life!
Add some brightly colored versatile seating that could also be utilized as a side table to set drinks on like this bright green metal on from Homegoods for $39.
Add some brightly colored pillows, planters and accessories for a fresh new look that is affordable and inviting to draw you out to enjoy the wonderful Spring weather outside.
Affordable “How-to” Design Tips:
Living Room or Master Bedroom
Use some new colorful pillows, throws and accessories to bring a renewed life to your living room or master bedroom in bright cheery colors like aqua, oranges, lime greens or buttery yellows
Add some new and fresh artwork.
Surround yourself with happy and positive messages on your decorative pillows or the artwork to keep you uplifted
Even change out your rugs seasonally as an affordable but impactful change to updating your room – $50-150
You can also easily swap out your curtains in any room for a brighter shade for Spring/Summer and then switch them back for Fall/Winter to a darker shade
Tip: Pick rugs or bedding with a neutral base color as foundation pieces that you don’t have to switch out throughout the year so you can easily just update your spaces by adding color through inexpensive accessories
It’s so easy to add some life to your kitchen in an extremely affordable way by changing your table linen to a brighter hue or add a great pattern for some chic style then add some bright placemats, napkins or dishes to refresh the look.
It’s easier than you think to also update your décor by changing or updating pieces you currently have such as painting a side table another color or changing the fabric on your kitchen chair cushions to bring a Bright Green or Indigo into your space.
It’s additionally easy to spray paint some serving trays or cover in a fabric you love to repurpose an item that you already have.
Switch out items from around your house and move them to different rooms to give yourself a new look without spending a dime
Don’t be intimidated by change, go for it and you will love the results and have a brand new cheery environment to start the new season!
