Spring is a time for rebirth and revival. It’s nature’s way of saying: “Keep calm, and let the sunshine in.”
This season’s decor trends take inspiration from the catwalks of New York and London.
“Lifestyle trends almost always have their origins in fashion and they permeate the world of design throughout the year,” said Elize van der Berg, chief executive of of Beetroot Inc.
This year sees a resurgence of ethical and sustainable living, with international trend predictor WGSN Insights reporting a growing consensus towards responsibility and personal involvement.
So how will this translate decor-wise? On the colour front, van der Berg believes homeowners will be more inclined to go for strong, vibrant and bright or sweeter, lighter ice-cream pastels. “We’re also still seeing the growing trend of ombre neutrals with metallic accents.”
