Looking Forward to Spring: Interior Design Trends
What better way to forget about the cold and leave our winter worries behind than to turn our attention to 2018 Spring Interior Design Trends.
Punxsutawney Phil may have predicted six more weeks of winter, but we have our sights set on warmer days ahead. So, what better way to forget about the cold and leave our winter worries behind than to turn our attention to 2018 Spring Interior Design Trends.
What’s Hot in Interior Design this Spring?
“Yes, it’s still dark and dingy,” says Sophie Warren-Smith, HouseBeautiful, “but we have so much colour and texture to look forward to this spring and summer.”
“Don’t feel like your home needs to have all modern design in order to add geometric patterns,” says Jeffrey Weldler, marketing director with VÄNT Wall Panels. “Geometrics even have a place in an industrial farmhouse–style home.”
Roller Shade in Mode, Sea GreenWe mentioned this trend in one of our January blog posts looking forward to the new year, but it is certainly worth repeating. “[This year] will be dominated by pattern,” says interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. Geometric shapes are everywhere, from floor to ceiling. “It’s all about tiles, wallpaper, and art,” says Warren-Smith. And another great way to incorporate these patterns into your decor is with your window treatments. At Next Day Blinds, our Mode Roller Shades allow you to seamlessly blend geometric patterns throughout the home.
“We like roller shades, because they can be pretty much anything you want them to be; heavy, light, patterned, plain, affordable, easy to fit, and they can instantly transform a room,” says Sharon Renshall, CEO and President, At A Glance Decor.SHOP ROLLER SHADES
Fun with Color
When it comes to interior design trend predictions, one thing is certain; everyone has an opinion when it comes to color. So, we gathered some of our favorites.
- New Neutrals: It’s time to rethink neutral colors as we know them. Bye bye, beige! The new neutral trend “swaps in soft gray, hunter green, blush pink or even navy blue,” writes Liz Gray, HGTV.
- Gelato: Who doesn’t love gelato. Now imagine those bright colors splashed around your interior. “Gelato colours are going to be a huge trend in both interiors and fashion this year,” says Warren-Smith.
- Pastels: “I keep seeing more of these romantic, soft, fusion pastels,” says Nancy Fire, HGTV HOME design director. Liz Gray, also of HGTV, recommends combining “soft greens and pinks with bold accents to create a traditional living room with a little bit of an edge.”
- Gold: “This year gold is the key colour,” says Warren-Smith. “Softer than silver, it brings its own elegance together with a sense of decadence.” Most easily incorporated in lighting fixtures, handles, faucets, and mirrors, metallics are also growing in popular in terms of wall hangings.
- Ombre: Perhaps the most fun color trend for this spring is ombre, meaning to shade. “This season you’re going to see ombre in many different ways,” says Warren-Smith, “from fabrics to cushions, rugs to bedding, and in a painterly watercolour style on lampshades, artwork and furniture.”
A quick and easy way to incorporate color into your home is with your window treatments. Next Day Blinds Honeycomb Shades come in 129 different colors, including numerous pastels, neutrals, and even a few of your favorite gelato colors. Available in a large variety of colors, textures, and pleat sizes, our honeycomb shades are a great option for any room.
“Cellular shades are one of the most versatile window treatments available today,” says interior decorator Margaret Ryall. “They can be hung by themselves for a very contemporary look or layered with other treatments.”SHOP HONEYCOMB SHADES
Back to Nature
“With increasing news of health benefits, the humble houseplant is fast becoming the must-have buy for our homes,” says Warren-Smith. “Place them in each room, use hanging plants for shelves and mantelpieces and some lovely leafy beauties for bare corners and coffee/side tables.” However, there is another way to give your interior a natural look and feel. You guessed it – window treatments. Our Woven Wood Shades are made locally using premium natural bamboo, reeds, woods, and grasses, for beautiful results. These shades “bring a distinctly organic texture to a room,” says interior designer Becky Dietrich, and “enhance and warm almost any decor, from modern to country.”
