When the leading names in color selection release their seasonal color picks, it can be difficult to decide how to update your home interior design to match current trends. As winter comes to a close, the spring colors have been released along with plenty of living room color ideas.
It’s important to remember that not every color is going to be a fit for your house interior. Keeping up with trends is all about incorporating the interior home decoration ideas that fit your personal sense of style. We’ve outlined a few ideas that work with different decor preferences. No matter whether you like loud color combos, a softer approach, or sticking to neutrals, you can keep up with the current trends.
Bold and Striking
If you like to make a strong statement with color, you’ll love the popular living room colors for Spring 2018. Gone are the days where the only spring house decoration options came in various pastel palettes.
Bright, bold colors like Lime Punch, Cherry Tomato, and UltraViolet are taking center stage both on the catwalk and in the home. That being said, you probably shouldn’t rush to paint your walls lime green while simultaneously picking out bright purple carpeting. When using strong shades like this, it’s important to balance the room with neutral colors, like high quality cream furniture especially in spaces like living rooms.
Pick the specific elements of the room you want to make a statement. If you choose to paint the walls a vibrant color, choose neutral colors for your flooring and larger pieces of living room furniture. If you’d like to pull in multiple strong colors, then use accents like throw pillows and other smaller pieces of furniture.
For those who prefer deeper shades, you may find a new favorite home decor color in Chili Oil, a deep crimson shade that can look good in any room in the house. When using such a dark color in spring, make sure to pair it with softer hues in a room with a lot of lighting. Otherwise, the room can start to feel heavy, dark, and small. Try a crimson rug, couch, or wall paired with a herringbone gray high-quality armchair.
Soft and Subtle
Those who enjoy incorporating color in their home but aren’t a fan of loud, vibrant hues will find comfort in the traditional, soft spring color selections. Make no mistake, when we use the word traditional, we’re not referring to old, overdone looks. With the Spring 2018 colors, you’ll be able to keep your home fresh while incorporating the soft and subtle color palettes you love.
Both Blooming Dahlia, a peachy pink, and the soft Little Boy Blue are very popular colors right now. You can choose to bring in subtle influences of these colors through rugs, tables, and lighting fixtures, or you can use furniture, walls, and cabinets.
Though it is not a pastel or subtle color, we recommend adding in splashes of a bright color, such as yellow furniture, if you want to add a brighter feeling to a room.
One of the dangers of using soft, pastel-ish colors is creating an almost childlike atmosphere. These colors are often associated with nurseries. To combat this problem, unless you are decorating a nursery, it’s important to pick furniture and decorations that are of high quality and look more refined.
Many are saying that all-white interiors are on their way out, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up your love of neutral tones. Break up the white with other neutral hues such as cream, grey, sand, and blues. Don’t be afraid to bring in a few pops of Sailor Blue, a navy-like shade that pairs well with neutral color palettes.
When choosing living room decor sets, consider sand-colored living room coffee tables with natural wood legs paired with a white sofa and blue throw pillows. These simple looks will continue the clean look you enjoy while staying on trend.
The Spring 2018 colors accommodate amateur and professional home decorators of all preferences and abilities. With the wide variety of colors, decorating your house interior while staying on trend has never been more customizable or more accessible.
