In case you’re wondering, the first day of spring is just around the corner (Tuesday, March 20).
And if you’re thinking of refreshing and revitalizing your interior décor for the new season, why not bring the following trends into your home?
Copper is in; brass is out
In 2016 and a bit into 2017, many homeowners chose brass for things such as:
- Light fixtures
- Picture frames
- Wall switch plate covers
However, it got to the point where there was too much brass around the house.
That’s why, in 2018, many DeSozio Homes families are opting for copper.
While copper has a similar look and feel to brass, it also creates a glamourous, old-world atmosphere around the house.
Additionally, copper is more versatile than brass. You can use copper for the items listed above, as well as for other things like tabletop vases or flatware (knives, forks, etc.).
Love the look of marble?
Hate the impact it has on your bank account?
If you can’t bring a marble floor or countertop into your home, this spring’s hot design feature upgrade alternative is high-end wallpaper which looks like marble.
When done as an accent piece, marble wallpapers add a though of sophisticated elegance throughout your home.
Wall patterns are available in the most popular marble designs, colours, and styles, including:
- Travertino Agento
With marble wallpaper, you get the best of both worlds; the look of marble without the excessive cost.
There are many reasons why acrylic will be very popular in spring 2018:
- It’s easy to clean: Unlike materials like quartz, granite, or marble, acrylic is very easy to clean. All you need is dish soap, baking soda, and vinegar.
- Available in many styles and colours: Whatever ambience you want to create in your home (earthy, classic, vibrant, bold, etc.), acrylic products can make it happen.
- Mold and mildew resistant: Important in the bathroom or kitchen; acrylic is non-porous (meaning water cannot pass through or get caught inside out).
One last thing: If you happen to have a small space, acrylic frames, tables, and even furniture, can make it look and feel bigger than it is.
It’s always a good idea to bring clean air plants into your home to help purify the air and add a splash of colour too.
But, if you want to do something different, you can always bring climbing plants inside the house.
Now, we aren’t talking about thick, heavy, or hard-to-maintain climbing plants like English Ivy.
Rather, these are indoor vines that can fit into any home décor (just remember to prune, water, and care for them on a regular basis):
- Devil’s ivy
- Swedish ivy
- Spider plant
Remember, when planting growing vines, they obviously need enough space – and something – to climb up (such as a lattice structure or climb down (from a hanging pot).
Couches with curves
When it comes to couches and sofas, angular/squared “L-shaped” sectionals are being replaced with rounded, fluid, and curved pieces.
- You can put them just about anywhere to neatly divide or break-up a room
- They provide a nice viewing area for things like fireplaces or gallery-type art
- Provides shape and personality to a square- or rectangular-shaped room
Sitting on a curved, swooping sofa creates a cozy, communal vibe where everyone is encouraged to interact with one another.
That’s in stark contrast to a sharp, linear couch where people sit and face forward (as opposed to each other).
