Spring Trends In Home Decor
Spring has officially sprung! Weather is warming up, the days are getting longer, and you’re starting to think about rejuvenating your home after being cooped up during this unseasonably wet winter. Here are some home decor ideas to refresh your living space this spring and summer.
Indoor Plants Never Go Out Of Style
If you’ve got a green thumb, you probably have plenty of plants in your home already, but there’s always room for one more! Plants freshen the air, spruce up your home, and bring a sense of lightness and openness to any living area.
If you have a garden outside but have to wait to plant delicate flowers until the last frost in May, give them a jump on the growing season by starting them indoors! Lots of plants can be sprouted or planted in pots in the warmth of your home, then transplanted to outdoor planters when the weather warms up.
If you have more of a brown thumb and can’t seem to keep plants alive no matter how hard you try, go for succulents! They’re small but cute, and they’re extremely low-maintenance. You can even go the route of artificial plants — just as attractive, even if they don’t have the same air-freshening effect.
Accent walls are very in right now — one wall, or a bold geometric shape, in a strong color to offset the lighter colors in the rest of the room. Lots of people find that painting a whole room with strong colors creates a dark and somewhat claustrophobic feeling, but a single wall can bring a welcome pop of color.
Most homes opt for lighter, neutral colors for their carpets — the light colors of your flooring create an open, airy feeling, make your rooms feel larger, and won’t pull focus from the wall decor and furniture that you’re using to express your tastes and styles.
But for years, “neutral” carpet has meant various shades of taupe, beige, and brown. Recently, gray carpet has made its way onto the scene and it’s starting to get popular! Gray carpet goes with any color of wall decor, lends a cool and sophisticated feel to any room, and is available in as many materials and styles as any other color of carpet so you don’t have to compromise.

Sustainable Materials Are Trending
One of the world’s largest home furnishings retailers recently announced that 70% of the materials they used to make their products during 2018 were either renewable or recycled, including 100% of their cotton and 85% of their wood supply.
That attitude of environmental consciousness and sustainability is making its way into home decor, as well — with innovations in technology, responsibly-sourced materials can be just as chic and upscale as metal and plastic.
Whether it’s recycled plastic fibers in carpets, sustainably sourced wood in furniture, or kitchen surfaces made from recycled PET bottles, you can decorate your home the way you want without being unkind to the planet.
Remember, you don’t have to remodel your house to get a new look! A splash of paint here and there, a new carpet in the master bedroom, and a couple of new accent pieces is enough to completely change the look and feel of a home. This spring, put on your thinking cap and get inspired!
