The high street retailers have all released previews of their Spring lines and there are lots of great products coming in the next few months. In this blog post, we’re taking a look through some of the prevailing trends which will be hitting the shelves in Spring 2018.
Grey is a neutral choice for most interior designers. However, this spring bolder colours are the main event. Braver colour choices, like violet, navy and emerald green are all key players in the latest trends. In wallpaper, furniture and soft furnishings we can see evidence of richer colour palettes being used.
Glam Dark Woods
Taking inspiration from the Art Deco era of design, furniture is looking towards a darker shade this year. Gone are the pale woods which were prominent due to the revival that Scandinavian design has enjoyed in recent years. Metal handles and legs accent the dark wood finish to create a luxurious feel. You’ll see this trend in many high street offerings.
This year, travel is influencing interiors more than ever. John Lewis’ has released details of its new Fusion collection, which takes influence from the cities of Rajasthan. Clay and terracotta form the base of many pieces which are coming down the line with patterns and textiles taking a natural and raw influence.
This trend began in 2017 and looks to continue its popularity in 2018. The energising tones of green scream nature and are set to take over the high street in a big way. Look out for large scale leaf prints, safari wildlife and exotic birds.
Brass is back with a vengeance. It’s a sophisticated, organic colour palette which will be found in everything from ornaments to light fittings. As a versatile material, it can serve to complement a variety of interiors styles and almost always compliments.
A few years ago it was all about faux taxidermy, with many investing in metallic, plastic and wooden sculptures of animal busts. In 2018 however, Pineapples are the hot subject, coming in many forms, from mirrors to lamps.
