It’s that time of year when we can start to put a fresh spin on our homes’ interiors and shake things up with the start of spring. And what better way to infuse those spaces with a new lease of life than by adding a splash of captivating colour? Guest blogger LIV for Interiors guides us through a selection of unmissable spring colour scheme ideas to try out this season…
It’s not every day you use your taste palate to define your colour palette, but this season is all about the cool, pastel-driven hues of ice cream and gelato. Whether it’s a pop of strawberry pink, a burst of cherry red or a smattering of pistachio green, there’s bound to be an option to suit your style. If you’re feeling adventurous, why not combine your favourites in a wonderfully vibrant fusion of flavours?
For something a little more striking, indigo blue is set to make waves in the warmer months too. From bold, brave and brilliant walls, to more subtle, integrated accessory options, this is a colour that lends itself well to a variety of materials and textures. So, if you want to add a hint here and there or give your whole room an inky makeover, there are plenty of ways to go this spring.
Glisten in Gold
Combine a sense of sophisticated elegance with a hint of decadent opulence by adding a splash of gold to your home. Intricate detailing like gold leaf will bring a classy and refined sense of luxury to any space, while glimmering accessories such as lamps, mirrors, picture frames and cabinets could be just the thing if you’re looking to integrate some timeless Art Deco glamour and refinement that never goes out of style.
Top of the Pops
Colour doesn’t have to be applied in sparing strokes or delicate tones – it can be loud, confident and full of character. To make a statement, pops of colour are certainly the way forward, be it through statement walls, colourful cushions or eye-catching carpet. Make the most of the trend by starting with a base tone and building around it, allowing your true colours to shine at various points around a room.
You’ll be seeing this effect entering homes more and more over the coming months. With its arty, watercolour look and blended effect, ombré can be applied in numerous ways, and is ideal for those who want to inject a new look into their interiors, in their own way. Of course, the best part about it is that it works with a wealth of different colour combinations, on walls, floors, furniture and accessories alike.
