Spring/Summer 2016 Home Trends

Spring has sprung and as the lighter nights and sunnier days arrive, it begins the season of spring cleaning! Spring is a great time to spruce up your home and whether you’re a DIY enthusiast or looking to update areas of your home, we’ve put together a trends update from some of your favourite homewear stores to add a little spring colour to your home.

Be green this spring with the Amazon trend and bring a touch of the jungle indoors. Inspired by spirit of Brazil, transform your home with oversized leaf prints and bright, bold colours or for a more subtle take on the trend, focus on nature-inspired designs featuring textured glass or earthy tones and materials.

Add to darker base colours such as walls and furniture to really make the prints stand out for a bigger impact to create an almost tropical environment.

Check out the Linea range at House of Fraser or Matthew Williamson collection at Debenhams for more on this creative trend.

Time for reflection with this neutral toned trend - perfect for creating a calming environment allowing for a little colour, rather than a monochrome or minimal look featuring muted tones of grey and soft pastels, with a hint of bolder shades through limes and pinks. The trend features a blend of simple shapes for accessories and dining with a contemporary and origami style while some items include Japanese themed motifs, romantic floral embroidery and simple prints. 

This trend is all about simplicity and calm so work to create clutter-free, calming environments. For those who prefer a little more colour, combinations of dusty pink, duck egg blue and pale gold can achieve beautiful results.

Consider the new Grey and Willow, Casa Couture or Linea collections at House of Fraser.

Create or reflect past adventures with the Traveller trend where you choose the destination in the design. Featuring earthy tones with bohemian and vintage patterns and designs the trend can bring a calming feel to a room while creating a space to reflect, dream of your favourite destination or simply show tokens of past travels.

The trend is a very bohemian twist on the past shabby chic and vintage styles and can be achieved to various extents to suit your tastes and space in any room.

Look for the Linea collection at House of Fraser, At home with Ashley Thomas collection and store collection at Debenhams or various accessory items from Victoria James or Gift Company to recreate the style for your home.

Similar to the vintage feel of the traveller trend, Sweet Nostalgia is a brighter, bolder trend for the season with predominantly a floral theme. Featuring bolder colours including yellows, pinks, teals, oranges and reds it is a trend guaranteed to make an impact in any room. Neutral rooms with white or magnolia walls are a better backdrop for the trend allowing the impact from the accessories rather than overall decor to complete a room. Mix patterns and colours to add extra impact in set spaces rather than filling the entire room - it’s all about balance to fully achieve the trend.

Check out Matthew Williamson, Ben de Lisi and At Home with Ashley Thomas at Debenhams or the wider homewear collections at BHS for inspiration.

As we move to the warmer seasons, the coast is always a popular destination for many and the regatta trend is a great way to bring some of the best maritime memories into your home and enjoy whatever the weather. Featuring a combination of white, red and navy in a variety of patterns and styles, the regatta trend is no longer just a style for your bathroom.

Update previous trends with a few key items to create a fresh new look or with a selection of primary colours and stripes, you can transform a room into a bright space with added personality.

The Home Collection and Ben de Lisi at Debenhams, Linea Home, Dickins & Jones and Gray &Willow at House of Fraser and BHS Homewear are top destinations to achieve the trend.
