5 Spring Decorating Trends That Will Make Your Home Interior Blossom
(5 min read) The spring is upon us y’all and to me, that usually means two things: it is spring cleaning and renovating time. Needless to say, the extent of your renovations will always be determined by your budget. The loyal blog-fans among you know that I’m not the one to yank your chain with $7,000 Gucci beddings and $25,000 Artemest chandeliers. Nope Siree Bob. Here at Mosaics Lab, we respect everyone’s budgets and we try not to insult anyone’s intelligence. On that note, in this article, you will find some budget-friendly ideas that are easy to achieve and tackle. Some of these might seem a bit (just a bit) on the pricey side, but if you opt for them the payoff will be immense.
1. Kitchen backsplash
If you are want to treat your kitchen with something nice this spring, but you’re not sure what type of embellishment to go for then we have the perfect idea for you — mosaic backsplash! And I don’t want you to consider it just for the beauty of it, but because it is SO easy to clean and maintain. Any other type of tile arrangement or material you choose will demand more attention than kitchen mosaic backsplash. Mosaic art is simply the best choice when it comes to kitchen walls. Unlike with tiles or marble, you won’t have to scrub mosaic as soon as some water drops on it and you can choose from a variety of different designs. If there is a kitchen renovation, there should be a mosaic backsplash — it’s a no-brainer really…
2. Mixed metals
Some say that the past year was the year of mixing a variety of different metal without limits, but it seems that the trend is here to stay. The best thing is, this can be quite cheap if you do it properly. Silver, bronze, chrome, nickel, and no “or” in-between, just go wild! And on the same note go wild in EVERY room. Take your grandmas old brass candle holders from the attic and clean them with some baking soda, visit the local yard sale and buy some old iron flower pot stands, switch your old wooden club table for a glass-metal one. The possibilities are endless and most importantly — affordable.
3. Rattan everywhere
Every spring for the last couple of years rattan has been taking interior world by storm. Rattan has that particularly open and outdoorsy vibe to it, so it will do miracles with making your interior appear more inviting and fresh. Furthermore, it is quite easy to maintain and the cushions are great to fit into any kind of color pattern. Even if you decide to change the color patterns in your home next year, you will also be able to easily and cheaply change the color and the material of your cushions and not buy completely new furniture.
4. Pop of millennial pink…
…said the millennial. No seriously, hear me out! This is probably the cheapest option on the list and when it comes to the effectiveness it is right next to the mosaic backsplash. Imagine one lovely, perfectly designed home without any visible flaws. Now add one bright pink swing chair in the corner of the living room. Uh huh. Just like that. Or just one pink pot for your biggest plant. And voila! Spring is here!
5. Update your paint
This one doesn’t have to be anything of the charts and you can do it yourself. If your home is more about the subtlety, then don’t go for strong colors just for the trend of it. Just change the shade instead. If your living room was muted blue, now paint it a muted yellow, if your bedroom was neutral beige, now make it light green, etc. And don’t worry about your rug or curtains not fitting in. It’s spring, everything is colorful and fresh, who cares?
So here you go. These are some of our picks that will help you ease into spring without severely damaging your budget. And don’t feel bad if you are not able to do any of these this year, sometimes just buying a magazine with a colorful cover and placing it on your side-table is enough. Spring is coming, love is in the air. Follow our blog and be happy.
