Although there might still be snow on the ground, it’s time to start thinking about spring. Regardless of whether the groundhog did or didn’t see his shadow, warmer days must be just around the corner.
Spring is a time for new starts, especially in our homes. As warm weather moves in, it’s a great time to update our décor. It might just be some new throw pillows, or you might be thinking about a total kitchen makeover. Whatever décor upgrades you’re planning this spring, keep these five trends in mind.
Tip #1 – Think vintage
One of the big trends for 2020 is incorporating vintage pieces with more modern items. Look for statement pieces like a table with spooled legs or spindles on the back of a chair. Pair these pieces with modern colors and textures to create an up-to-date room that pays homage to the past.
Tip #2 – Embrace Navy Blue
The Pantone Color of the Year for 2020 is Classic Blue, a shade of navy blue.
Using navy blue in your decorating creates a perfect point of contrast for other colors. “Whether a kitchen island gets a quick upgrade or a room gets a dramatic new look with contrasting white trim and woodwork, the shade provides a stately look without going completely black,” Kerrie Kelly of Kerrie Kelly Design Lab told Good Housekeeping.

Tip #3 – Add a tree
Olive trees are the decorating tree of choice this year. Whether live or artificial, adding an olive tree to your space brings the outdoors in and provides some gentle sophistication to your space. Choose an olive tree that fits but doesn’t overwhelm your space.

Tip #4 – Come down to earth
Earth tones are in, and pale colors are out.
Choose earthy tones like browns and greens to redecorate your space. And don’t hesitate to paint the trim and the walls the same color. A monochromatic look on the walls creates a restful environment for your eyes.

Tip #5 – Get back to basics
There’s nothing more basic than simple black and white.
The color combination has endured as a classic for centuries because it is a pleasing contrast to the eye. While recent trends have advocated for an all-white look, this is the year to bring in those black accents. Go sophisticated with sleek, modern accent pieces or have some fun with a classic checkerboard pattern.

Bonus Tip – Paint it red
Red always makes a statement and draws focus to a room. While you might be toning down your colors and getting back to the Earth tones, don’t forget to drop in a splash of color.

Remember…Florals are in!

You can pair just about any faux flower arrangement with an attractive floral print or wallpaper to make it seem as if the flowers have simply jumped off the wall or furniture into life in your home.
Take advantage of the floral trend to add some new faux flower pieces to your existing collection or try out decorating with fake flowers and plants for the first time. It’s easy, and you’ll be trendy. What could be better?
