Spring is bringing fresh ideas for interior design. The industrial farmhouse look is starting to wane with many designers and critics. Ship-lap has had it’s day.
The newly designed rooms for spring and summer 2018 will have lots of color, prints and textures.
PRINTS AND COLORS
Floral prints are everywhere. You’ll find them on handbags, home decor, clothing, art and yes, wallpaper (which is also making a comeback). This time around the floral prints are a little brighter and/or bolder; even edgy.
If you prefer to have your floral on the floor, consider a rug or stair runner. Visit our showroom to see our selection of beautiful carpet.
Monochromatic rooms of neutral shades (grey and whites) are giving way to color. Deep rich jewel tones and soft airy pastels; the take-away here is to add color.
Grey will still be around, although there is a prediction of brown becoming more prominent (it will be exciting to see what autumn brings). Don’t fret if you just had grey toned hardwood floors, cabinets or carpet installed. Grey is still a wonderful neutral that pairs well with most any color.
Velvet is coming back in a big way! Whether you have a few pillows or an entire sofa, velvet in a deep rich color brings a touch of luxury and glamour into a living room or bedroom. Do you dare to immerse yourself in ultra-violet?
On a lighter side, sisal rugs and natural woven materials will be making appearances in rooms with bright floral prints and colorful walls.
Think outside the box. Take a color you love and change it up. Indigo to periwinkle, dark green to sage, bright red to deep cardinal. You get the idea. Accessories are always a great way to add that exciting color you’re just a little afraid of committing to.
