Spring is a time of change and renewal, in which we feel like leaving the gloomy winter months behind and immerse ourselves in a green and luminous environment. Just like nature, our home also needs to welcome the arrival of good weather. The living room is one of those rooms in the house where we must portray this feeling of positivity and make a change in decoration in order to welcome the spring.
Heavy blankets, dark colours and other design features that we saw last season should give way to fresher fabrics and patterns that evoke nature and luminous colours so that they match the energy transmitted by the new season. If you are thinking about decorating your living room in the spring, forget about the floral theme: this is the trend that always returns to the catwalk, but should not be in your living room.
Nature is the main theme of the spring decoration for the living room, in the form of the safari 'look' that will best fit your home this season. A great way to give prominence to this trend is to cover your living room's wall with an elephant motif, although for the less daring a large painting that evokes a savannah safari also works. Small details like animal figures will give a special touch. Yes: the more animal prints you use the more ethnic your decoration will be!
And from the African savannah we move on to places equally warm in order to let a little piece of paradise enter our home: the jungle. The cushions with colourful birds or leaf prints are the stars of attraction for those who want to give their living room a slightly more daring touch. If you do not want a zoo at home, try combining these prints with plain green fabrics. In addition, pineapples and palm trees that became fashionable in past seasons are still present this spring, so you can incorporate the animal designs with these themes.
The star colours of this season for home decoration are green and orange. These are the two shades that remind us of nature rebirth and the warmth of the sun during this time of the year. However, those who seek to maintain an aura of freshness and neatness in the lounge, can draw inspiration from classical ballet. This type of dance moves in subtle and harmonic ways as pleated in pink lamps and light fabrics for the curtains in the room. It is an option to decorate the living room in the spring for a more traditional femininity.
