Using spring colours in interior design
Making the most of spring colours in interior design is a great way to add a touch of vibrancy to your home. So let’s put the cold and wet winter behind us and take a look at how you can freshen up your rooms and add a spring to your step!
Spring colours are full of life
The beauty of using spring colours in interior design is that they’re so adaptable and can be used in any room in the house. Unlike autumnal shades, which tend to be bold and rich, spring brings us soft pastels and florals alongside vibrant and fresh greens. With a little bit of inventiveness, it’s possible to build spring colour palettes that work anywhere from the bathroom and kitchen to your bedrooms and lounge – that’s why we love spring colours so much!
Get inspired by a spring walk
If we’re going to use spring as our inspiration, it’s well worth taking a walk in nature to soak up some of the sights and scents of the season. Yes, it’s just as important to think about how spring feels and smells if you’re planning on really bringing this season into your home.
On your walk take in the gentle pastels of the cherry blossom, the rich blues and purples of the bluebells and primroses, and, of course, the cheerful sight of hundreds of daffodils. Couple these colours with a touch of green and you’ve created the feel of a spring walk in your home!
Bunches of fresh spring flowers in your living spaces and some green plants will help to create a more wholesome atmosphere by adding the smells of the season too. Open up the windows to let some fresh air in and you’ve nailed it!
Starting from neutral
We love working with neutral tones as the basis for interior design because they allow you to change key aspects as the seasons come and go. For example, if your walls are ivory or light grey you can easily change the entire feel with soft furnishings and a feature wall.
A colourful canvas print or two in strong spring colours can work wonders when matched with a feature wall in pastels or floral print. You can either paint the wall each season or use peel and stick wallpaper to quickly add some spring sunshine to your space.
Using spring colours in interior design is a sure-fire way to bring a bit of sunshine into your home, so why don’t you give it a go today!
