Spring home design trends

If the cold weather is bringing you down, it's time to fill your mind with thoughts of spring. Even though the groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter, April showers will soon bring about May flowers. What better way to get ready for the upcoming season than with a home makeover? Take a look at these top design tips sure to make a splash in 2014:

  • Natural elements: This spring is the perfect time to get in touch with nature. Bring natural elements to your home through the use of plants and minerals. Or, look for earth-tone home décor. Deep brown or green window fashions will do the trick. Wood finishes can also help you reinforce the nature vibe. Look for wood furniture that boasts invigorating textures as well. 
  • Rich textures: "Step aside Pantone, texture is spring's hottest new color. Homeowners are putting down their paintbrushes and adding interest with texture through high-gloss finishes, metallics, sequins and mirrors," writes the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "A textured tile wall brings visual and tactile interest, especially when paired with contrasting high-gloss lacquer or low-gloss matte accessories."
  • Vibrant accents: Home design will be anything but boring during this spring. Say goodbye to "blah" beige in favor of vibrant hues and one-of-a-king accents. Look for chic accents with trendy metal finishes. Or, opt to show your wild side with animal prints!
