Interior Design Trends Spring 2016

We are currently still in Winter but I’ve already seen some beautiful signs of Spring emerging. I was driving along this week and saw the first wild flowers coming into bloom I’ve seen this year – crocuses.

This got me thinking about how exciting Spring is in the home. A time of Spring cleaning – renewal, freshness, light and airy. Therefore Spring is the perfect time to refresh or completely renewal your interior design. Spring is the time for letting go of the old and bringing in the new.

 

Interior Design Trends Spring 2016

We all need inspiration when it comes to interior design. For me it comes from everywhere, nature, designer materials, fashion trends and of course the seasons.

1. Botanical Prints

Henry Holland, the British fashion designer will be launching a collaboration with Habitat later this year. Henry explains what he predicts for this Spring.

“Botanicals will continue to be a strong seasonal look but translated into psychedelic colours and clashing palettes for statement effect in place of a more natural, organic vibe…jungle trend for spring with animal prints and exotic palms alongside retro rattans and natural bamboos which will be taking centre stage as materials.” Daily Mail ‘The Biggest Interior Trends 2016.

2. Vibrant Colours

The ‘Pantone Spring 2016 Color Report’ is out and the colours are vibrant compared to Spring 2015.

3. Pink & ‘Cherished Gold’

Shades of pink teamed with gold is going to be big in the design world this Spring. Dulux’s predicted colour of 2016 is ‘Cherished Gold’. Rebecca Williamson, Senior Colour Design & Content Manager at Dulux, comments:

“Gold and tones of gold are being used everywhere in the design world. It is a recurring colour and material at design fairs and in graphic design as well as in architecture, fashion, beauty and interior decorating. For 2016 Cherished Gold is a beautiful next step, a natural evolution and transition from Copper Blush, last years’ Colour of the Year. As metallics continue to add that feel good factor into our homes, this earthy gold inspired hue will offer that little touch of glamour in an authentic and personal way.

We also see shades of soft pink contrasting with gold on Etsy’s blog Interior Trend Report for Spring/Summer 2016. They asked Pip McCormac, Lifestyle Director of Red Magazine, to break down the BIG home decor trends for spring/summer 2016.
