While some like to say: "new year, new you," we’d paraphrase it to: "new year, new home décor." Winter may be in full swing but there’s nothing better to get you excited for spring than a home makeover project. And with interior design, a little can go a long way. You don’t have to invest in a full-on renovation, a few new pieces of furniture and a couple of décor accents will do the trick just fine.
And there is so much to be excited about when it comes to 2020’s décor trends. Nature and sustainability are having a moment, so now is the best time to zen out your home with plants and natural materials. Another trend everyone is talking about? The so-called “grandmillenial style” which is basically mixing up traditional décor with modern accents (think ruffles, embroidered linens, chinz curtains, and pleated lampshades.)
In terms of colors, bid adieu to whitewashed walls and get ready for bold monochromatics and dramatic prints. Don’t be afraid to add a little character to your rooms—it’s all about standing out.
Check out our favorite home décor pieces for a spring-inspired home makeover.
