Goodbye WINTER, Hello SPRING, it´s time for a NEW start…..


Embracing Spring 2018 & it´s Colour palette..

This winter seems to have been so much longer than the last and I cannot wait to bring a little colour into my home. Whether it´s in the form of a bunch of spring blooms or a few accessories it´s the perfect time to give your indoor space a makeover. I spent a little time researching and seeking inspiration and hope that you get inspired with these great SPRING decor trends. Changing your look does not always need to cost a fortune.  What´s IMPORTANT to remember when keeping up with trends, is that they are just trends and generally are only in for a season and out for the next. My personal rule when updating my home is to keep the changes simple by updating with simple accessories: cushions, curtains, artwork or simply by adding greenery or fresh flowers.

We see the return of DARKER wood tones in Retroglam and modern LUXE pieces, so if like me you wanted to start painting all your darker pieces of furniture lighter, remember trends are forever changing so your treasured pieces keep unchanged.

TIP:  A quick and easy way to give an old chair a new look is to re-upholster it using a new fabric that is currently on trend, velvet or linen in soft tones.

I remember growing up with MACRAME and at times it feels like we have gone back to the 1970´s. I am not wild for this look but it does add a natural and textured feel to a living space. Using a Macrame plant holder can add a different dimension to your room.

TIP:   Unless you are absolutely wild for this look try and keep it to accessories like plant holders or cushions, its definately a way to add a natural woven texture to your home.

Tropical was a big trend in 2017 and is back again this year, What´s changed is that instead of using the usual bright mix of colours with tropical prints it`s more about using the lush tropical greens and botanicals. Great trend for outdoor entertaining areas.

TIP: Adding some lush greenery like palms or broad leaved plants into your living space his a simple way to give your space a fun tropical feel.

And for my personal favourite, a touch of VELVET….

VELVET adds a modern, luxurious and cozy look to interiors. Introducing this luxurious fabric by way of a single upholster chair or in the form of accessories is a simple way to bring a touch of sophistication into your living space.  Who can resist this amazing fabric that was mostly a winter fabric in the past but now, is all the rage for Spring & Summer 2018.
