Whether you’re ready for a total renovation like replacing your living room interior or as small as adding a new plant to a room, it’s always helpful to know what trends are on the rise so you don’t miss the bandwagon. Start with these hot data-backed trends.
Terracotta is one of the biggest trends right now, and when we say terracotta, we are talking about the clay based ceramic, not just the shade. Terracotta looks beautiful when paired with greenery and it’s an easy addition to your home. You can undoubtedly use terracotta as pots, while mixing light with terracotta will add instant warmth to your interiors and character to your neutral palette. Terracotta lampshades look spectacular as hanging lights. For those renovating, consider terracotta tiles for your kitchen. A splashback in varying shades can be a spectacular feature. Unlike the shiny terracotta from the past, keep the finish matte for a modern look.
Shades of Blue:
Let’s just say blue is the new white. A versatile and neutral palette. “Blue is the colour of life; it is the clothes we wear, the sky we gaze at and the water that revitalises us” says Dulux. From the deepest ink blue to the palest misty blue, this colour spans every spectrum of life. Experiment with the shades of blue, from your living room furniture to your patio or even the walls.
One of the hottest interior design trends right now is marble and it also happens to be one of the most interesting and versatile trends. One of the main aspects that stands out is, it transcends era. Add a touch of classicism with marble decor by placing coffee, side and console tables. Add little details with trinket boxes, candle holders and trays with raw finishes. Marble is inherently elegant and resilient; it has never truly gone out of style. However, it’s certainly having a moment right now.
Indoor plants have been an interior decor favourite for decades, but it seems growing greenery within your living spaces has gotten a recent rejuvenation. Plants can add some much needed vibe like to an otherwise drab room. The plant trend is here to stay, whether in the form of green being the on-trend colour or variety of plants that are fashionable for home. You can simply group small plants together in glass containers or jam jars and place them on your console or side table or you could devote an entire corner for your plants by placing them on a ladder or on different shelves for layering. Another way to assimilate plants is by hanging them to add a unique visual element. Adding plants fills out the colour palette and basically finishes the look.
So, get inspired and get going. Of course, remember to choose what you love, regardless of what might be in trend but it can be fun to make a few changes to your house as we welcome the spring season.
