Now that we're coming out of Winter and into Spring, get ready to celebrate warmer weather through hot new home designs with bright colors, beautiful bouquets, and a light, spacious style. If you want to give your home a new look this Spring, here are some of the most buzzed-about home design trends to incorporate into your next home project.
Embrace Spring Colors!
A hot trend this Spring is the use of color in a light and airy design. You can keep the room light and airy by combining blue and yellow along with some white. Also, using spring-inspired hues like turquoise and red can also liven up a room in the most colorful way. These bright accents will give your room all the energy it was missing in Winter.
Wood is the New Neutral.
This season's trend toward wood textures pairs the warmth, richness, and texture of real wood. Installing engineered wood ceilings and wainscoting can bring the unique look of wood into any environment. Think wood-textured textiles, tree-printed wallpapers and embossed soaps that have the appearance of wood.
Bring the Shores to your Front Door.
If you're inspired by the lifestyle and environment of coastal living, Spring is a great time to bring the beach shores to your front door. Weathered and white-washed wood ceilings are a subtle yet stunning addition. They are especially great when coupled with interior accents like decorative shells and drift wood furniture.
The Power of Texture.
Color is a great addition when it comes to spring home design trends, but even more popular in 2014 is the use of texture. So put down your paintbrush and add interest to your home with high-gloss finishes, metallics, sequins, and mirrors. Textured tile walls draw visual interest and can have an even greater impact on the senses with contrasting high-gloss lacquer or low-gloss matte accessories.
The use and versatility of manipulated metals is a great addition to any home. Ranging from hand-crafted artisan to contemporary high-gloss, these metal designs are very popular this Spring. The use of copper, pewter and nickel can be styled in many different ways, including hammered metal sink basins, tin-look ceiling times, antiqued copper light fixtures and brushed stainless steel cabinet hardware.
Using these home design trends this season, you can easily make a stunning impact on your home's style. Watch out Spring, here we come!
