Discover home decoration trends for spring 2018

The world of decoration is constantly evolving and the proof of this is in the trends that change every so often. In fact, each season surprises us with new elements capable of drawing our attention and giving a new lease of life to the home. This spring could not be any different, which is why we want to focus on everything that will characterise this season. Let's get started!

1. The power of light tones

In 2018, leaving winter behind and welcoming spring with good temperatures and natural light will be synonymous with light wood elements, neutral colours and even pure brilliant white. These tonalities will be seen with great assiduity both in pieces of furniture and in textiles with the purpose of maximising spaces in the rooms and creating environments that are full of peace and harmony.

2. An opportunity for the tropical theme

The tropical theme is also going strong this spring. In fact, it works especially well when it is combined with colonial style furniture pieces, which helps to create a strong contrast between originality and classicism. Undoubtedly, it is a very interesting option for the most daring and for those who are firmly committed to elegance.

3. The industrial style is also popular

Another trend that brings us this spring is the industrial style. In this sense, on other occasions he has invited us to decorate the bedrooms of the house with him, while now he seems to focus more on the living room. In addition, it is presented by the XXL sofas and furniture that mixes wood and metal. On the other hand, the tones most in vogue will be blacks and grays mixed with reds.

4. Maximum priority for natural light thanks to vaporous fabrics

This spring will be the ideal time to remove those thick curtains from the windows and choose other finer and vaporous fabrics that allow sunlight enter the rooms. After all, there is nothing like natural light to brighten up a room. In fact, some recent studies show natural light is linked with happiness.

5. Time to risk a little with wallpaper

The good thing about wallpaper is that, depending on the type chosen, it can be adapted to any season of the year and, in addition, it is extremely affordable and original looking. This spring is the best time to use wallpaper to bring a more youthful touch to the children's room, a more relaxed atmosphere to the office or a brushstroke of intimacy to the master bedroom. In every one of these rooms, it is best to opt for using wallpaper only on one of the walls and the rest can be painted in the usual manner.

6. Natural features should be introduced gradually

If you close your eyes and think about spring, you will surely see flowering plants and trees full of fruit. It is clear that this season is directly related to life and nature. Therefore, use neutral colours that can be easily combined with features made of wicker and real plants. Also, do not forget that this is a 'low cost' decoration trend suitable for all budgets. It is definitely an excellent option to adapt your home to this season.

7. Neutral colours for the walls

Neutral colours are also becoming especially important when decorating walls. So, if you are thinking of painting your home now that the good weather has arrived, always keep this factor in mind when decorating your home. This decoration trend, which seemed to have been banished a couple of decades ago, has returned once again together with wallpaper.

8. Use vinyl as an original touch

The last decoration trend for this spring that we want to refer to is for you to add a touch of originality to your walls by installing vinyl. This material is not only affordable, but it can also be easily installed and can be changed from time to time without great difficulties. By choosing vinyl with flora design in bright colours, such as red, green, yellow, or violet, your spring decoration will be a true success. 

As you may have noticed, the spring of 2018 has arrived in terms of interior decoration, with more strength than ever before. It goes hand in hand with many trends that promise to help you update your home in a very comfortable, simple and, affordable way. In many cases, keeping up with latest fashion does not mean spending a lot of money. Everyone who visits your home during this spring will certainly be surprised with your good taste in decoration!

Property on offer in Spain

In recent years, the Spanish property market has become a sector particularly valued by international investors, and it's no surprise. Between 2009 and 2014, property prices in Spain underwent notable changes, and as a result properties are currently being sold at very competitive prices. This situation applies to houses both for sale and to let, as well as to more luxurious properties, making Spain a practically unique case in Europe. The best investment possibilities can be found in Spain's high-end properties.

The high-end sector is the most interesting to the international investor. Many people the world over consider property in Spain, especially in the larger cities, to be some of the best patrimonial assets in Europe (a good example would be a luxury attic in Madrid or Barcelona). And as for the exclusively residential market, those who wish to have a second home in Spain, or buy a main house can also benefit from this situation. Logically, all of these benefits also reach the proprietors who wish to sell their houses.

Living and working in Spain

The quality of life enjoyed in Spain is the result of a unique combination of climatic, geographic, and of course, human factors. Living in Spain is an option that is contemplated by more foreigners every day, and buying a house is the first step towards that. Acclimatisation tends to be fast, and those who move in with the objective of developing business ventures can also count on easier administration when buying a house. Spain's high quality property market paves the way forward.

The type of property which one moves into in Spain will obviously depend on the newcomer's aspirations. Those who head to Spain, whether to live or to work, can enjoy the wonderful surroundings, either in an apartment with a view (of the beach, mountains or the city) or in a house right on the coast. For more information, it can be very useful to seek the advice of an estate agent in Spain, who will analyse the most interesting offers based on the prospective buyer's criteria.

Selling your house in Spain

Selling your house is another option for foreigners who live in Spain. Whether you are coming to the end of your stay in Spain or you just want to get rid of one asset in particular, the services of a reliable and trustworthy Spanish estate agent are essential. These professionals will examine the qualities of the villas in Spain that they want to commercialise, reaching the most advantageous sales agreements possible and getting the luxury properties in question on the market. Little wonder: if anything indicates the current context of the market it's that the role of the agent is basically to close a good sales agreement.

How to arrive in and travel through Spain

Alongside the properties that Spain has available, the country also offers areas of great patrimonial and natural interest. It's worth highlighting the excellent connections by land, sea and air to all the European capitals such as London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Brussels, and Geneva, and many other European cities are less than a three-hour journey from the main Spanish airports. Those who travel to Spain have airports at their disposal not only in the main cities but also in the majority of the provinces. Another alternative to get around the country is via the complete train network that, on a smaller scale, consists of commuter trains to the inland regions, creating easy access to almost any town and property in Spain.
