Big bloom prints are everywhere. From dark and moody colors to white and soft colors, find big bloom wallpapers, floral pillows, and upholstery in this season’s hottest home decor trends. Bright colors are hinting their way into home decor, brightening up dark wood and traditional home decors. Brass kitchen knobs and pulls, lighting fixtures, hardware, and even gold tassels on Parisian style drapes will enhance the living room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom.
English garden inspired floral prints make the perfect spring decor for traditional homes, contemporary interiors, shabby chic decor, and transitional styles. Make a blossoming statement with floral upholstery on a statement chair. Add beautiful colors such as vibrant Ultraviolet floor pillows to a comfortable Hygge home or bohemian chic apartment.
There’s nothing more luxe than a handsome tufted sectional couch or statement chair with brass details. Imagine a sophisticated sofa with beautifully carved legs in Ultraviolet velvet or a dark moody color such as dark red, blue, or green. A statement piece such as a tufted sofa in a deep bold color will enhance any decor. This look is perfect for a Victorian home, Midcentury Modern, French Baroque, luxe farmhouse chic, or even a contemporary or transitional decor. For the living room, complete the look with decorative pillows and wall decor such as floral wallpaper. For the dining room, upgrade dinner seats to plush tufted chairs. Complete the look with a chandelier or statement lighting fixture. With this look, you can choose to show off beautiful hardwood floors or lay an antique rug to accent the room.
Victorian style chandeliers are classic, eye-catching, and add a sophisticated, romantic touch to your home decor. Chandeliers have a long history spanning over 800 years. This timeless decorative lighting style has evolved from Flemish chandeliers. The first Dutch brass chandelier made a statement in the 15th century. Before brass chandeliers, during the 8th century, Moorish chandeliers were made of iron. Prior to brass, wooden chandeliers were in use during the Middle Ages.
Today’s chandelier styles have stood the test of time and shifts in cultures with most classic styles defined by the French Baroque, Rococo, and Neoclassical (Revival) time periods, between 15th to 19th centuries. English glass chandeliers, including Georgian chandeliers, started in the 1700s. Venetian chandeliers and other chandelier styles add to the endless selection of chandeliers on the market today. No matter which style you choose, a chandelier will instantly create a luxe atmosphere and mood in your home. The trendiest chandeliers for this season include modern interpretations that feature elements borrowed from historical time periods.
Victorian styles and French Baroque styles feature ornate and elaborate details, while Industrial Chic chandeliers and pendants feature geometric and contemporary designs. You can find a chandelier finish to match your interior decor, including brass, bronze, black, white, chrome, silver, and gold.
A happy home is well kept, plush, beautiful, and comfortable. This spring, find soft textiles in every room including upholstered furniture and rugs. Floral designs, soft colors, feminine textures, and abstract designs will cover every textile surface — from area rugs to upholstery. One home decor item that has a rich history and is deeply influenced by cultural traditions is rugs and carpets. Vintage and antique rugs are popular all year long, but for this season, opt for light spring colors such as pink, grey, or light blue. For a Hygge home or traditional home, stick with cream and beige rugs. If you want more colorful rugs, orange and green can brighten up space. Shag rugs are perfect and comfortable for spring home decor as well as winter decor. Authentic hand-woven rugs are cool in summer and warm in winter. Rugs will enhance your home decor as well as protect your floors, so your tiles or wooden floors will last a long time.
There’s nothing quite as wonderful as the feeling of jumping onto a bed full of fresh, clean linen. This spring, keep it simple with all white bed sheets. Add a touch of floral to your bedroom wall decor with soft painterly floral wallpaper or framed art. You can also arrange fresh flowers on the bedside table or nightstand. For a rustic French country or chic all white farmhouse decor for the bedroom, step it up a notch with a beautiful chandelier or light fixture but keep everything simple and white to get the look. A statement chandelier or light fixture can be a focal point in your bedroom. A beautiful antique dresser, refinished wardrobe, or decorative mirror will add the perfect touch to a vintage bedroom decor.
If you’re going for a Parisian, Victorian, or Neoclassical interior decor, think big windows with abundant light and contrast. The French Baroque and Rococo styles truly take center stage with drama and flair. Victorian style decor features curtains with floral prints like roses, cherubs, and cameos often in dusty mauve, gold, ivory, powder blue, and hints of violet and yellow. Alternatively, go all out with dark and heavy drapes for added drama. Hang the curtains as high as possible and let them loosely puddle at the bottom. Black silk, dark green velvet, ultraviolet, royal blue or purple, or deep red are some of the hottest colors for spring home decor. Add gold tassels as a finishing detail for the perfect Parisian or Victorian inspired window treatment.
Bring a touch of nature indoors and add texture with soft painterly art. Floral prints, chinoiserie wallpaper, and Greek revival artwork are making their way into home decor. Replicate touches of this trend from wall decor to table settings, upholstery, curtains, rugs, and accent walls. Choose from among the soft spring colors for the ultimate spring home decor. One of our favorite color scheme for the painterly trend is gold and cream with earthy brown and fresh green. Wisteria, wildflowers, chinoiserie prints, and roses make the perfect backdrop for a beautiful vintage inspired spring home decor. Chinoiserie Chic and painterly wall decor look great for contemporary and transitional home interiors as well.
Brass and gold continue to be popular metals for spring home decor. Style a classy powder room or guest bedroom with pale blue silk curtains, matching chinoiserie wallpaper, an antique mirror with Rococo style decorative frame, and a bombe chest or dresser. The key to pulling off this interior decor is with stylized hardware, such as knobs and curtain tie backs and hooks, in trendy brass or soft gold finish. Make a statement with Rococo furniture pieces throughout your home this spring.
Whether you prefer big floral blooms with dark moody colors or soft colors with a light background, floral wallpaper is in this season. Transform your home into a dreamy nature-inspired garden with floral wallpaper. For this trend, you can find all kinds of prints, including chinoiserie themes of birds and oriental flowers, English rose gardens, wispy wildflowers, bugs and other creatures, and botanicals. Floral wallpapers can make the perfect statement on an accent wall, elevate a staircase, or enhance the foyer. Add the right amount of texture with beautiful wall decor and spring wallpaper. This trend looks best in French country homes, shabby chic farmhouse, Chinoiserie Chic, and Victorian interiors. Other home interior styles that floral wallpapers complement include traditional homes (Edwardian and Georgian interior architecture), Greek Revival interiors, Neoclassical styles, and transitional homes.
When it comes to lavish bedroom decor, the French interior decor style is distinctively regal. From Rococo style bombe chests and bombe dressers to Versailles bed frames, there is nothing more extravagant and luxurious than a royal French bedroom. Add flair and drama to an opulent French decor in any room with a beautiful brass or glass chandelier. Hang curtains as high as possible and let them gently pool on the floor. For a truly Versailles inspired bedroom, choose colors such as cream, white, brass, or gold.
It’s all about the details. For an elegant and fresh spring decor, add subtle textures and similar colors to your home decor palette. Mix light grey with creams, soft yellow and gold, sage green and mauve, and blush tones. For an unexpected touch, consider lilac or Greylac with a hint of Ultraviolet as your home decor accent. Dusty rose, natural colors like green, and warm metal finishes will all come to play beautifully in this year’s spring home decor.
