A fresh season means a fresh start, so why not begin in the home? Interior designers from online interior design service Milray Park have rounded up the five top trends set to be big in the interiors world this spring, including some expert tips on how to bring them into your own home.

So open the windows, let the warm air in and check out what’s on trend this season!

1. Bold interior colour schemes.

‘White and grey walls are timeless’, says Milray Park Designer Amanda Smythe. ‘But if you have grown tired of your neutral interior, perhaps it is time to go for a moodier scheme’, Amanda suggests.

‘Bold schemes are currently gaining more attention. One of my favourite interior paint colours is Obsidien from Porters – a beautiful blend of navy and black that puts the spotlight on decor and provides a striking contrast to whites and neutrals’, Amanda advises.

Amanda suggest, ‘It may also be time to move away from feature walls, a tired trend that gives the impression that the budget did not quite stretch for the full desired effect’.

2. Warming wallpaper.

Wallpaper is making a comeback and this trend is not going anywhere soon’, says Milray Park Designer Grace Brooks.

‘This spring will be all about traditional patterns and organic colours, so don’t be afraid to go bold! Wallpaper is the perfect way to bring interest to a space. And because it ties back to a time of more traditional techniques and our history, it will give your home an instant warmth that is hard to achieve with plain painted walls’, Grace explains.

3. Mix & match textures.

 ‘Texture is a big thing this season’, adds Amanda.

‘Furniture has a natural handmade feel with materials such a rattan and wicker taking centre stage. Whatever the colour palette, mixing textures can instantly create another layer of decoration and interest. We love the use of macramé, and a simple pendant can transform a space, providing an instant touch of on-trend styling at very little expense’, Amanda says.

‘And while most of us love white walls, even a strictly colourless palette needs varying shades of white and neutrals with layered textures’, Amanda explains.

4. Edgy earthy tones.

‘You will see a lot of warm, earthy tones like terracotta, rust, tan and tangerine in interior design this season!’, says Grace, ‘These colours are perfect teamed with yellow and cream tones for extra depth and layers of tone’.

Grace suggests, ‘You can easily introduce some earthy hues in your home with furniture (think velvety upholstered armchairs), on walls, or with accent decor pieces such as throws, cushions or beautiful textured vases or ornaments’.

‘But make sure it is textured! It will add to that rich warmth and earthiness to make your home a real sanctuary this spring’, she adds.

5. Bring the outdoors in.

‘With increasing news of health benefits, indoor plants are fast becoming the must-have buy for our homes’, continues Amanda.

‘Place them in each room, use hanging plants for shelves and mantelpieces and add some green goodness to bare corners and coffee/side tables. Team them with some stylish pendants and a textured rug’.
