Throw off your winter woollies and trade in your snow boots for sneakers – it’s time to put a spring in your step and say a warm hello to Spring.
Cosy throws can be thrown out, candles extinguished and the hot chocolate swapped for a refreshing smoothie.
Spring is about regeneration, rebirth and reinvigoration and it’s time to breathe life into your home. Not sure where to start? How about checking out five of the hottest home trends, get inspired and bring your home out of hibernation with the essential wake and shake up it’s been longing for.
In 2017 we embraced hygge – the Danish concept of appreciating the moment - we made our abodes cozy and special, realizing the value of a welcoming home. Well, it’s time to embrace a new Nordic notion, the Swedish word “Lagom.” Vogue have already tipped it to be the next big thing and we have to agree. There’s no exact translation, but Lagom refers to moderation or “just the right amount.” It’s about finding balance - de-clutter your home, simplify and bring a sense of serenity to your life. You might have to re-think your storage, but keeping surfaces free from mess will help you to instill a sense of calm. The Kartell Componibili 3 Tier Unit from VOGA, inspired by Anna Castelli Ferrieri, provides a stylish storage solution that will help you to keep things in order.
The word geometry may have struck fear into you while studying at school as you struggled to get to grips with the concept of shape, size and relativity! Fear not we have something much more fun in mind – make your home more interesting with the addition of funky geometric patterns to brighten the place up. Sharpen up your splash-backs, wake-up your walls, or go for accessories that give a nod to this exciting trend. 2018 is going to be chock-full of pattern, the era of living in a stark, bright white, minimalist home may be coming to an end.
The word metallic may conjure up a feeling of masculinity or a futuristic look, but used correctly metallic pieces can add a real depth to your room. Be bold and go for a statement piece such as a metallic dining table or go for a subtle nod to the trend with a metallic colored lamp such as the Artichoke Lamp from VOGA – available in copper or aluminum.
Tone on Tone.
Now this one can be a little tricky to pull off, but if you want to be seen as a trendsetter consider matching a few key pieces of furniture to your walls and go for the “tone on tone” look. You don’t want it all to be too wishy-washy and blended in but get it right and your décor will be hotter than hot.
2018 will see natural elements being brought to the fore and if there’s a view to be had then your home should embrace it, make the most of the natural light and take in the great outdoors wherever possible. Use furniture in warm wooden tones to light up your living room and add limestone tiles to enhance the walls in the kitchen. Check out the Tulip Style Oval Dining Table from VOGA in walnut veneer, for a stylish piece that embodies this trend.
