3 Interior Design Trends For Spring 2023
With a new season upon us, it's the ideal time to show your home some love. While these spring interior design looks offer stylish ways to update your home, each one hinges around personal expression for a style that will have longevity. What's not to like about that?
Pairing complementary colors - those that sit opposite each other on the colour wheel - is not just a trend for spring but a cornerstone of interior design. A spring refresh that utilizes complementary colors is a timeless way to breathe life into your space, rather than a passing fad.
Yearly insights from Etsy report a highlight of two top colors for the year ahead - honeycomb and indigo - based on classic color pairing principles, in which one color boosts the vibrance of the other (and vice versa).
Complementary colors that side by side bring out the other's radiance: Indigo hues invoke a gorgeous night sky and joyful honeycomb lights up a room or outfit.
Looking towards the color wheel and decorating with complementary colors in tandem will be a huge trend for the season.
Pairing complementary colors, such as blue with orange or green with pink, creates vibrant rooms that effortlessly merge together and soothe the soul. Whether that be by painting adjacent walls or layering bedding, the overall effect is harmonious.
Classic prints and patterns are always in style, but spring is an especially great time to experiment with the more whimsical ones, such as gingham and checks. There's lots of variation here, from tight grids to fluid lines, meaning you can match your pattern to the feel of your interior.
Checked patterns are an easy way to add some personality into a room without it feeling too over the top. Whether that be in the bedroom, living room or kitchen, each pattern is extremely versatile and achieves a plethora of different effects.
In springtime especially, opting for patterns in fun pastels through rugs and cushions is an effortless way to acknowledge the season and inject happiness into a space. For a more mature take, you can opt for more sophisticated colors such as dark navy and deep reds.
Pillowcases, blankets, and other soft furnishings are quick updates that can be rotated with other options throughout the course of the year, subtly tweaking the look of your space from season to season.
70s Boho Maximalism
Layering and atmospheric lighting are not limited to the colder months; there's plenty of room to create a nest-like space in spring, too. It's a look that doesn't shy away from texture, pattern or rich colors - the result is snug, inviting and laidback. Picture an abundance of houseplants, handmade cushions, and unique artwork - a house that feels like a home.
Be inspired by 70s bohemian. Decorating with colors such as orange, brown and green is very nostalgic and helps to create a warm cocooning effect.
Steer away from white flatpack furniture, and instead, look out for beautiful brown wood and rattan furniture which you can buy for an affordable price secondhand. To tap into the maximalist side, don't be afraid to clash patterns as this adds more character and uniqueness to a room.
For lighting, prioritize floor and table lamps over the 'big light' to create ambience. And opt for homeware that elicits positive emotions and memories. Avoid an overly curated look here - in fact, perfectly imperfect pieces and a dose of individuality are what will really set your home apart from the rest.
