Spring decor trends – new colours to try in your home this season
From vibrant hues to more classic neutrals, this season Pantone offers up plenty of variety in its palette. Considered the global authority on all things colour, Pantone says 2019 spring décor trends will “reflect a desire to embolden ourselves as we face the future” with colour that transcends seasonality, while remaining dynamic without being too overpowering. This year, it’s all about providing a sense of confidence, while championing our creative spirits with unexpected combinations.
I have to say: I love the sentiment! Why wouldn’t we want to take charge of our futures full-steam ahead, and what better way for us to do that then to create a home that energizes us to do exactly that. It’s interesting – we don’t even realize most of the time just how impactful colour is on our daily lives – it can uplift our spirits to give us a sense of positivity and hopefulness, just as much as it can drag us down and leave us feeling, well, frankly, less than that. Colour has the ability to do that, so what I love mostly about this year’s Pantone selects is that there is plenty to choose from, so whatever your ideas are this season for some fresh spring décor trends in your own homes, you can cherry-pick whatever colours speak to you most to start the process.
Here’s some of my favourites:
Turmeric – This spice isn’t just good for your body it’s now considered a good option for your home, too! Love how energizing the orange is with that pungent, deep palette.
Pepper Stem – Earthy, but vivid. This yellow-green is meant to encourage our desire for nature’s healthy bounty.
Lemon Verbena – Anyone else think of the Amalfi Coast (and their lemons) when you look at this colour? Just gorgeous. So fresh and cheerful.
Toffee – Rich, just like the treat, but also a beautifully classic shade.
Pressed Rose – Ah! So romantic and pretty. The pressed rose is meant to strike feelings of sentimentality.
Soybean – You know I can’t walk away from a neutral! Soybean is a favourite: more subtle and versatile. I find it quite sophisticated actually.
Eclipse – Navy has been trending for a while now, and with good reason: It’s such a sumptuous, deep blue. It’s a bit sexy, isn’t it?
Sweet Corn – Love this name and love the colour even more: Soft, almost buttery, it’s a stand-out neutral in my opinion.
