Decorate As You Dress: Spring 2013 Decorating Trends

It’s finally starting to feel like spring, so if you haven’t started your spring decorating than now is the time to start.   And what better way to do that then to start with the fashion runways.  I’ve identified 5 key decorating trends that you can take into your home this season but it’s so much more fun when we add a fashion mix to it.  I went onto one of my favourite websites called Fashion + Decor and found fashion & room pairings to match my recommended spring 2013 trends.  So let’s get started:

1. Bold Colour

Stella McCartney Spring 2013 RTW and House to Home

Just by adding some emerald green (Pantone‘s 2013 colour of the year) into your wardrobe and home will totally put you on trend this season.  If green isn’t your colour then any other bright colour will do.  Promise.

2. Florals

Every year it seems like florals are on trend for spring…..and why not, flowers to me scream spring time.  Its the interpretation that may be different each year.  Depending on your personality you can go big and bold with florals – like the wallpapers below or the floral sofa…..or as discreetly as you want with just a few toss cushions on your favourite neutral sofa or fresh flowers in a beautiful vase.  Anyway you like it…..just add some florals!!

And just because I can, I had to include a dash of leopard print.  Every home should have at least one piece of animal print and this glamorous room just reflects my feelings on this matter.  So gorgeous!!!  It really does make me swoon!!

    • Hi Mara
      I think the word “trend” gets a bad rap. Usually a trend starts to trickle in and takes a few years for the masses to adopt it. The colour grey is a perfect example in home decor. Grey is no longer a trend but the go-to neutral colour now but it took quite a few years to get to its popularity. I believe you should adopt a trend that you truly love. So if florals are it – then start bringing in floral toss cushions or a gorgeous floral area rug. If its colour, then start with wall colour or some upholstered chairs in a great colour YOU won’t get sick of. Hope that helps.
      Thanks so much for your comment.
