Home Styling Trend Book – Spring

Swimy Doshi

In the second part of home styling trend book, we will be focusing on spring home styling & décor trends.

With spring just around the corner, Melbournians are finally getting their fair share of sunshine. As the cold winter is about to fade away, Its time to update your home styling & decor as well.

Throughout the winter months, our home becomes the hub of cosiness with a lot of woollen fabrics and textures. With the weather warming up, Its time to upgrade these colours & fabrics to the fit spring décor trends.

Some of the winter colours palates & decor elements can be easily transferred into the new season, while certain items will need to be replaced to match spring colours and textures.

Bright Colours

Spring is a time of renewal for nature as well. It’s a perfect time to put away those dark shades of brown, black & grey and replace them with refreshing tones of pastel & bright colours.

Our Favourite: Hues of Blue

Spring Colours

Pastels & Shades of Blue

The blue colour is an excellent transition colour from winter to summer because of its character. we use some of the shades for our winter décor as it resembles the snowy chilly mountains. The shades of blue are easily transferable to spring collection as those deep sea blues remind us of the ocean and the sky colours. Deep blue coloured cushions or a rug would brighten the space and make it ready for spring & summer.

Use of Flowers & Plants

Use flowers to brighten up the surfaces and the spaces. A small floral arrangement on a coffee table or in the corners would make a big difference in the final appearance. Also, It’s a great way to experiment with colours you wouldn’t put together normally. A few shades of green plants & bright flowers would take your entire space to whole another level.

Fabric & Textures

As we put away the heavy wool, faux or fur throws and dark knitted pillows you brought out for the winter, It’s time to replace them with light and bright colours that make the spring more fun.

Paint a room

If you are planning to watch Netflix in coming weekends, consider changing your plans to repaint your room. It can be an entirely new colour or just a change of shade into the current one. Believe me, It will refresh your mood as well as your home space. 😊

Final Touch- Update those accessories.

As winter turns into the spring, plan to replace those heavy wooden accessories with glass vases & lighter shades. It’s also a good idea to bring those cane baskets for storage and décor. Hanging baskets of flowers and other bright plants are a great way to improve the space appeal, while baskets of colourful hand towels are a lovely addition to any bathroom’s décor.

 

With Spring on the horizon, add some bold patterns & bright colours to inspire the home designs. Style Bites team can help with any of your home staging needs. Check out our work portfolio & contact us for any of your home staging needs.

Home Styling Mood Board - Winter Colors

Home Styling Mood Board Winter

  • Knockdown Black / Navy:
    Black and navy are both great for regulating light, which is the key to creating relaxed, cozy environments for rooms such as bedrooms & living/dining areas. Some would be of the opinion “Navy is the new black” because it pairs very well with new-age pastel colors.

Style Bites say: “Black is still the king at the moment but in a matt finish always.”

 

  • Go for Grey:
    Shades of grey – We would say it’s a go-to neutral color for any interior designer/stylist. Grey can pair well with warm whites’ wall colors and textures.  Combination of white with shades of grey creates sense of comfort and relaxation.

 

  • Blessing from nature:
    Colors we get from nature makes us calm and composed. Natural hues go very well with most other colors and they can create a sense of warmth when selected the right undertones.

Hope this home styling tips help make your winter mornings shine & chilly nights cozy.
