Even though as I'm writing this it’s snowing we can only hope that some form of spring is just around the corner and what better way to give it a little nudge than attacking those spring renovations.
This year’s Spring/ Summer trends see large print florals, monochrome and metallic and cool, crisp Scandi making their way in to our homes and with Pantone revealing two colours of the year http://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2016 there’s a trend to suit every home, from country cottage to Georgian town house.
Add a contemporary twist to your traditional timber sash windows and doors with beautiful hand crafted copper furniture. Try Croft Hardware for a finish to suit every taste and a whole new take on metallics.
One of the easiest ways to update a room is with new window dressings. If you’re not a fan of curtains or blinds or you’re feeling adventurous why not try some statement shutters in an unexpected colour to make an impact without re-decorating the whole room. Try Clement Browne for bespoke shutters in on-trend colours.
Natural is the new neutral, raw materials are a massive trend this Spring and an easy one to integrate. Mix light coloured woods such as birch or maple with warm greys and dark blues. Stainless steel splash backs or worktops blend perfectly with warmer woods like oak and walnut and bring a modern feel to these traditional materials. Why not start by stripping back your existing wooden windows to their natural finish or for made to order timber windows Ventrolla have all your needs covered.
Does the thought of chintzy florals give you a headache? Me too. Thankfully this seasons floral trends are far from chintzy. Bold, bright colours mixed with abstract prints makes for a fresh take on florals. These beautiful cushions from John Lewis will complement any neutral sofa and if you’re feeling more daring these beautiful fabrics from Bluebellgray will add drama to a room.
