Spring’s 5 Biggest Home Trends
It’s that time of year, guys: We’re officially ready to swap out our winter bedding and unearth the alfresco entertaining supplies. In other words, we’re ready for a spring home refresh. For inspiration, we’ll be turning to these five buzzy, beautiful trends.
Floral motifs for spring? Groundbreaking. But treillage (aka trellis detailing) is an equally charming—much less expected—homage to a garden theme. This season, we’re seeing it everywhere from ceilings and trim work (above) to mantle features and dining room paneling. Think of it as the 2018 answer to chinoiserie.
Haven’t you heard? 2018 is the year of rich, juicy color. The hottest hue? A gorgeous mash-up of hunter green and turquoise that’s both bold and subdued. We're loving it across upholstery, exterior trim and our favorite of all: wall paint paired with warm, midcentury woods (à la NYC's new Freehand Hotel).
Open shelving: You came, you saw, you conquered, you...slowly fizzled away. The new open shelving? Über hard-working lowers finished off with decorative open-face cubbies. Example A: This stunning kitchen transformation on HGTV’s Restored by the Fords.
For the boudoir this season, it’s all about old-school Marie Antoinette opulence. The design community is buzzing with the newly opened French establishments Hotel Des Grand Boulevards and Les Mas des Poiriers—both of which feature regal, canopied drapery as headboard toppers. (Psst: They're a totally doable DIY, guys).
