Trends for Spring | Summer 2017
It's always nice to see what's trending for Spring and Summer, to check out what I can add to my home to keep it fresh and modern. Take a look at what's trending for this Spring and Summer at home decor stores.
It's all fine and well to see some of the international trends that are making an appearance, but for the average South African, we are driven by what's in the stores and what's available locally. We popped into a few local home decor stores to find out the trends for Spring | Summer 2017.
There are a couple of trends that are making the rounds this year; from muted shades of pink and blue, to Moroccan-inspired patterns and colours.
This Spring and Summer you can be inspired by a muted, natural colour palette, highlighted with soft hues of blush pink and a few strokes of palest blue. These soft colours bring out the best of your living spaces and complement a neutral palette of grey, white or cream.
If it's time to refresh your home with paint, pop into your local Prominent Paints store and let them mix up a batch of blush pink for walls or trim. This subtle colour is perfect for accent or features walls, or for creating a stand-out feature. Prominent Paints have all the paint products you need to paint almost every surface you can think of - in any colour imaginable.
If you're not sure what's the best paint for a particular area in your home, the friendly staff at Prominent Paints are on hand to offer all the advice you need, and will be able to advise on painting tips and techniques.
While you may think that pink is very feminine, blush pink is not a bold, brash or girly shade of pink, it's a more delicate hue of pink - a hint of pink that is almost neutral. Think back to the Patone colour combination for 2016, which consisted of Rose Quartz and Serenity. These colours are now making their appearance in home decor and accessories for the season.
Blush pink signifies tranquility and softness, and it's a great colour for creating a welcoming space that feels comfortable and relaxed, and while ideal for bedrooms and bathrooms, it's a colour that can be used in any room in a home. Blush pink works well with so many other colours, and brings out the best in natural woods and copper or rose gold metallics - also trending for Spring | Summer 2017.
If you prefer a more vibrant colour palette for the home, you'll love this year's trend that brings together the meditative qualities of deep blue with Moroccan-inspired patterns.
From cushions to table settings, intricate geometric patterns inspire you to spice up your living rooms with bold accessories. Taking their inspiration from Moroccan design, you will find a selection of accessories for all the rooms in a home.
