Spring is here according to the calendar, however, while writing this I’m watching the snow melt with a chill in my body. Even though mother nature may be up to her old tricks, I’m looking forward to swapping out our winter decor for some refreshing spring-like home accessories. Come shop the look to stay on trend in your home.
This is the season to clear out, clean up and embrace the lighter side of home decorating. Just like shopping for a few spring wardrobe must-haves your home can use a mini-makeover after being stuck inside all winter staring at the same four walls. I always find it intriguing by just changing up a few pieces or moving items around the room it can completely change the look. So, what should you be on the lookout for this spring? Check out these five home decor trends:
Make a Splash
Watercolor brush strokes continue to be a popular trend to play with home decor. The water downed colors provide a soothing, calmness to your decor that embraces the warmer seasons. Watercolor designs have moved past just being framed as wall art and can now be found on all different types of home decor items these days including throw pillows, rugs, clocks, shower curtains, bedding, blankets, dinnerware and practically anything else that you can imagine! Here are a few of my favorite watercolor home decor items that show a variation of different brush strokes, techniques and items to purchase.

Pastels with a Punch
Have you noticed white marble is trending? All you have to do is look online or at your local home decor store to see this classic being revived. Marble is an expensive material, but manufactures are substituting this luxe decor style with a ceramic lookalike to keep it cheap and chic. Find this trend on flower post, kitchen essentials, pillows, sculptures, even lighting. It’s everywhere, usually paired with an organic wood or gold metal. Don’t go crazy though with this trend! Avoid having a cold, sterile room by mixing a few organic home decor elements to soften the look.
Metallics are still very popular, but copper will be the metal of choice for 2017 because unlike it’s counterparts silver or gold, copper gives an industrial chic warmth to any interior. You can go as bold or as subtle as you wish, integrating this warm metal into your home decor style to create a uniquely inviting look.
