Once you clean up your custom window shades, furniture and accent decor this spring, you'll likely be left with a little more room to bring in new pieces to complement your interior design. Where do you begin with so much to choose from?
There are several trends in paint color, discount window treatments and furnishings to take advantage of this coming season. Whether you're into the idea of switching out your drapes for wood blinds or decking out your home in pink, here are some ideas to help you get started.
Try bold colors
Interior designer Matthew Dickamore recently told The Huffington Post that color is the name of the game this spring and summer. If you're looking for ways to make a memorable impression on everyone who walks into your humble abode, think about incorporating bright oranges, reds and yellows.
"I always love how color can change the look, mood, and feel of a space," Dickamore said to the source. "It does not have to be bright pink or neon orange to give a big impact. It can be a clean white or a midnight black in the midst of a sea of neutrals."
Adopt the idea of brass
If you're tired of seeing metallics such as silver and copper in interior design, spring is your season! MSN claims that brass is the new "it" metal, and it can be used in everything from decorative accents to lighting fixtures. Individuals who've always loved brass but never had an opportune moment to use it in their decor now have the chance to leap on this trend.
Strive for comfort
Gone are the days when homeowners needed to sacrifice comfort and practicality in order to achieve a trendy interior design. The Huffington Post claims that coziness now reigns supreme when it comes to decorating.
"Comfort is the hottest trend in home furnishings," Martyn Lawrence Bullard, interior designer, told the source. "Deep seats with well proportioned arms and heights are vital. Strong solid colors for the body of the upholstery. Always accessorize with strong, over-scaled exotic pillows."
Whether you want to redecorate your living room or you're interested in revamping your master suite, these tips can give you a place to start. Knowing what's trendy can help you achieve an interior that's eye-pleasing as well as on par with other living spaces across the country.
