Key Interior Trends for Spring 2016
As the weather begins to brighten and we start to see the first glimpses of spring, our thoughts turn away from dullness and hibernation towards opening up our homes and letting the sunlight shine through. Now is the ideal time to focus on the interior style of your property and see what changes you want to make.
Trends in interior design come and go, but if you want your look to be long-lasting, it's important not to choose a style that will date too easily. Here we look at what the experts believe will be the key trends for this spring and how you can incorporate them into properties, including those with metal stairs in the UK.
The new season trends for spring are very exciting, with elements of rustic charm, marble, luxurious slates and brass metallics, which can all be used to give your home a more up-to-date image.
Touch of Nature
Weathered woods used to create a rustic effect will be one of the key trends this season, and there are a number of ways that you can bring this into your home. This incorporates elements of nature into the property, including bare twigs, branches, wood and fabric that uses these influences, to create a softer finish than the harshness of the industrial looks we saw last year.
These natural touches can also be combined with other contrasting finishes, such as luxurious marbles or slates, to add different textures to the room.
Metallic effects continue to be popular in 2016, and this is something that we saw a lot of last year as well. However, homeowners are tending to move away from copper to softer golds such as rose gold or brass.
For those looking to add a splash of colour to their rooms this spring, some of the on-trend shades are graphite and charcoal, golden yellows and elements of browns and oranges, as well as indigo. To create a contemporary effect, this can be used alongside pastel shades, including chalky whites, soft greens, blues or dusky pinks.
When it comes to design and patterns, we are seeing the continuation of geometrics but to more of an uneven style than the symmetrical lines we had last year, which gives it more of a luxury finish.
With the right injection of interior design, you can create a whole new style for your property and showcase the most important features.
