Embracing the Season’s Home Trends

Apr 26, 2016 03:36AM ● Published by Family Features

With warmer weather ahead, now is the perfect time to assess the nest and look for ways to refresh the home with the latest colors, prints, patterns and fabrics that are on-trend for the season.

While trends provide a general framework, it is all about mixing and matching looks to create a personalized statement in your home. Seasonal trends can be expressed in a big way or through small accents that can exist with what you already have.

For inspiration to get started, the experts at Macy's have forecasted three distinct trends for textiles, tabletop and furniture, and provided some simple ways to reenergize the home.

  • Now and Zen: Natural materials and colors help create peaceful living spaces. To get the look, dress the bed with relaxed linen or a duvet with a soft, blurred floral pattern. Deep, rich indigo blues are also part of this trend direction and pair beautifully with pure white or neutrals. The blue and white combination will also be popular for table linens and dinnerware this season. Different shades of blue can be layered on the table for added interest.
  • A Touch of Whimsy: With warmer weather comes the focus on lighter colors, whimsical design and retro design influences. Embrace the trend with bedding and beach towels that feature bold graphic patterns and playful prints. For the season’s get-togethers, infuse the tablescape with textured glass, as well as dinnerware with layered pattern and diamond shapes. Mid-century influences also play a big role in furniture.
  • Bohemian Escape: Inspired by tropical locales and faraway places, the palette for this trend is darker with a focus on nature. Boho influences will be seen through patchwork design, pom pom trims and fringe. To infuse this exotic look, add a decorative pillow in a rich tropical floral print or tribal motif. Green will be the “it” color of the season for housewares and outdoor entertaining.
