7 Spring Home Décor Trends
There’s something about spring that always sparks our desire to renew and refresh. Think major haircuts, lighter wardrobes and, yes, new furniture and accessories. Whether you’re looking to spring-ify your home a little or a lot, our favorite trends of the season—open kitchen shelving (love!) to channel tufting—are sure to inspire and delight.
These top picks come courtesy of our in-house design guru Jessica McCarthy. She’s known for her fashion-inspired designs, fondness for vintage and love of the hunt (aka tracking down the absolutely perfect pieces for her clients).
So come right this way, for a breath of fresh air design…
Rattan, you’re looking great and clearly enjoying a moment in the sun. And indeed you're not just for the patio anymore. Seriously flexible and durable, furniture made of pliable palm stems has been around for centuries. The new-and-now part comes via the pieces themselves, i.e. gorgeous bed frames, chairs, ottomans; not to mention the fun and interesting way the furnishings lend texture and warmth to any space they inhabit.

Pretty In Pink
Pastels are in! Whether it's pretty in pink, lovely in lavender or splashed in coral they are all happening. Translation: pastel shades, alone or mixed and matched, are a guaranteed way to give new life to a space. Most people tend to think of these softer shades as strictly feminine. But truth is, a pale-hued accent wall or a statement armchair can be an ideal complement to a darker, masculine space, too. Try it, you’ll like it.

Light up for spring with structural fixtures. What's brilliant about them: Their hallmark sleek lines and retro vibe are extremely versatile, meshing well with a range of design styles. In other words, your living room doesn’t have to look like the set of Mad Men—unless you want it to. See how seamlessly this modern pendent anchors a traditional space.

Plump up the volume: I cannot get enough of channel tufting, where padded, plush and polished come together. The result when used on upholstered beds, sofas, and chairs is the ultimate in luxury and sophistication. In neutral-colored leather or bold shades of velvet, there’s a channel-tufted piece for every taste, glam to understated. And everyone likes comfortable, right?

In the kitchen, den or any room, open shelving is form and function at its best. Not only does it buy you more storage space, keep you organized and allow you to display beloved collections, stand-alone shelving fosters an airy feel and highlights beautiful wall treatments (we’re talking to you, marble backsplash). I especially love the reclaimed wood versions used in this Amber Lewis-designed kitchen.

Put a little circular motion in your space and the results can be stunning—as evidenced by this Kelly Wearstler-designed room. The key to this trend is finding sofas, chairs and ottomans that have rounded lines complemented by geometric pieces. To complement the sleek curved furniture add textured fabrics, warm hues and interesting architectural details. Fine lines, indeed.

Make a statement with bright neon lighting. What a cool and fresh way to add a pop of personality to your wall or console table. The choice of images and messages are endless. Creating a fun quote is another way to go. Maybe something like “Less Talk, More Designing.”
