As we say goodbye to winter and look forward to the warmer temperatures and beautiful weather of spring, many of us also need to update the style of our home design. If you’re looking for tips on the hottest home design trends for spring 2019, look no farther than this post.
Hygge: the Danish Phenomenon
One of the chief features of modern home design trends is the incorporation of the Danish philosophy “hygge.” This style of decor emphasizes “comfiness,” with the point being to surround yourself in your home with things that bring joy, peace, tranquility, and a sense of happiness and satisfaction. This spring, expect many homes to have a very hygge-esque look complete with warmer tones, mood lighting, large sofas, and even beanbag-style chairs.
Expect acrylic to come back in a big way this spring. Having clear, sleek items in your home like coffee tables, nightstands, or shelving can bring a sparkle to the home reminiscent of spring’s emphasis on renewal.
Storage as Decor
After a cold, snowy winter, spring cleaning usually means packing away those bulky winter coats and snow boots. Unfortunately, this means crowding your closets with space-consuming storage totes. Instead, consider getting savvy, vintage trunks or similar furniture pieces that can hold your winter garments and still be focal pieces for your living room or bedroom. It’s the classic two birds and one stone scenario!
Rather than taking up ground space with traditional dressers and shelves, a modern trend is to use vertical shelving nailed to the wall. A common example is having a mini-bar with drinks on one shelf, glasses on another, and art or a similar eye-catching design piece on the top. In fact, Pinterest searches for vertical shelving have increased in triplicate this year.
These spring decor ideas are just some of the awesome design trends to look forward to in 2019. If you want to learn more of this year’s top design trends, check out our post on the subject here. Have a wonderful spring full of warm colors and all the “hygge” you can bear!
