Spring swatches: warm pastels & cool greys

11 March, 2016

Since spring is just around the corner, you may already be considering ways to give your home a little bit of a refresh. Whether you choose to introduce bright bursts of colour or incorporate vibrant energetic patterns, by simply adding different colour techniques you can easily update your home to match the season. Interior colours this spring will transport us into happier places, helping us to reconnect with ourselves through self-expression in our homes

Here we explore the swatches you can bring into your home to help your interior transition seamlessly into spring.

Pure pastels

This season, pastel colours are set to make a huge comeback, and with furniture upcycling still a popular trend, there’s a whole host of quirky ways to introduce these shades into your home.

Simple structures

Geometric patterns and angled shapes give a beautiful feeling of symmetry in your home. Use these shapes to create a beautiful feature wall – perfect for your living room space. The Photowall Pastel Pink Hexagons wallpaper is subtle enough to blend into to your current décor scheme, but bold enough to make a statement.

Mint modern

Straight off the catwalk and into your home, the mint movement is popping into spring interior colour trends like no other. Whether you cover your whole room, or choose a few accent accessories to help bring the colour to life, the mint look is more versatile than you first thought. Pair with metallic accessories like copper and brass to achieve a Scandi pop art kind of feel, or add freshness by switching up your soft furnishings to reflect the mint trend.

Ombre fade

Nothing quite captures the temperance of a pastel shade than an ombre fade – a new take on the colour trend. Use ombre fabrics to cover cushions or sofas, or go for two-tone decorative pieces on your shelves to really make them stand out. You could even try ombre-effect storage baskets for your bathroom or bedroom for an alternative space saving option.

Go for grey

Some might say grey is the new black with its capacity to complement just about any colour. This spring, cool greys are totally on trend. Whether you choose to paint your walls in these grey tones, or introduce grey hues to your home accessories, the versatility of this shade means adding it to your home has never been easier.
