With spring breaking, a natural look will prevail in the home, says Stacey Sibley, creative director at Alexander James Interior Design.
“Textures and tones will reflect the beauty of nature, with modern touches thrown in for emphasis,” she says.
Stacey’s top 10 trends for spring are:
Natural textures in home accessories – matte glazed dinnerware, wooden serving platters and earthenware bowls.
Rough, natural woods, from floorboards to tables to shutters.
Ceramic table lights featuring delicate tones and patterning, in greys, light browns and pinks.
Bold trimmings to complement and contrast the natural feel of the home in soft furnishings.
Hand-painted style wallpapers.
Pastel tones – from paints to fabrics, pastel tones are essential for on trend interiors in 2017. Pastel yellow will also make a comeback.
Textured glass in lighting, with a rough, natural finish created through texture, while retaining the beauty of glass.
Patterned rugs that pick up on the pastel tones and natural hues of other objects, while also standing out as a centrepiece.
Sculptured chairs blending style and comfort to stand out as design pieces in their own right.
Graphic inspired art will provide a contemporary take on nature over the year ahead. Natural items like pebbles and blades of grass will be given a new lease of life through the playful interaction of graphics and textures.
