I know we are well into the year now, but with Spring making an appearance, and April (the biggest month for DIY) almost upon us, I thought it might be a good idea to put together some of the latest home interior trends for your inspiration.
I’ve been doing some research on Pinterest and through magazines and blogs to see what others are saying and what you can look forward to in the shops over the coming months.
Pinterest is a great tool for checking out new ideas and collating them together for inspiration. Why not put together a board on some of your decorating ideas to help with your next project? It’s a great way to identify what you really do like, and a good way to see where you style lies.
So, onto some of the latest trends that seem to be sweeping through in Home Interiors.
Latest Home Interior Trends 2015
This is quite hardcore isn’t it? And who would think that introducing concrete into our home interiors could look so cool, but it does. Plant pots, vases, light hangings and platters, it’s finding it’s way in gently and softly, and mixed with cool colours and softer materials, it looks amazing.
Big, bold and beautiful, palm decor is finding its place in our interior this year. Mix and match your styles and prints for a real eclectic look. Use wallpaper for a striking statement, or introduce it more calmly through cushions, prints and wall art. Rich, dark greens, mixed with dramatic blues and blacks give an exotic feel to any home.
Plants and Succulents:
Cute, funky and bang on-trend, succulents and indoor plants in general, are enjoying something of a renaissance in our homes. Contemporary containers, macrame hangers and terrariums are great ways to display them, and as Spring and Summer evolve, we’ll be seeing more and more of them.
It’s the Dulux Colour of the Year, and mixed with an upsurge in Pastels (see below), we are falling in love with this soft, metallic pink and working out how to get it into our homes. There are lots of tips and ideas on my Colour Blush pinterest board to help you, if you think this colour could be for you.
Well they’ve been around for a few years, and now the high street has grasped them fully. Metallic and particularly copper based home interiors are EVERYWHERE. Let’s not overdo it, or they’ll go the way of the chevron, and we’ll be fed up of them all too quickly. Introduce metallic pieces one by one, don’t go too mad, and mix them in with your current interior. That way, if they bomb out, it won’t be too expensive removing them!
Paint Dipped Art:
This one might not be for everyone; it’s a little bit out there. I follow Oliver Jeffers on Facebook (because Lost and Found has to be one of my favourite children’s books) and when I saw him showcasing some of his dipped art, I was intrigued. It’s a little sinister and why would you cover up great art like this, but it works and gives some of these traditional pieces a real contemporary edge. If you can’t afford an Oliver Jeffers original, why not give this is a go yourself, with a charity or thrift store find?
They’re not necessarily sweet and sugary, they’re calm, sophisticated and pure. The pastels of 2015 will suit even the hardest of hearts and look great in anyone’s home.
You can check out more about these trends on some of my latest Pinterest boards here.
I would also like to say welcome to Cardboardcities, my March Guest Pinner, who has curated her own very colourful board for me, showcasing her love of colour in the home. I’m looking forward to collaborating with lots more bloggers and Guest Pinners throughout the year, and can’t wait to see what they come up with.
