Today we’re sharing with you our favourite ways to update your home for spring, featuring some brand new homeware products that are new to Black By Design. Refresh your home this spring with some simple updates and you’ll change the feel of a room easily!
No matter your budget, and if you wish to have a huge overhaul of your home or wish to simply update a certain room, here at Black By Design we will have some homeware and accessories that will certainly appeal to your inner interior designer!
Redecorate with this seasons colour
Ever since it was unveiled that ultraviolet has been declared the Pantone Color Of The Year 2018, the colour purple has slowly been edging its way into homes as the next big interior design trend. Majestic and rich, the colour purple is an excellent choice to work into your interior design colour palette. Although the official colour of the year is a dark purple hue, you could easily use the entire purple colour spectrum to make it work best in your home. Refresh the walls in your bedroom or bathroom with a dreamy lilac or lavender shade, or choose a darker purple as a feature wall in the lounge as a way to incorporate this 2018 homeware trend into your home.
Adding purple accessories to your home can be a good way to bring the colour trend in different rooms without much commitment. Purple blankets and cushions can replace existing soft furnishings in the bedroom as lounge and can provide a statement look against plain fabrics or act as a pop of colour in a monochrome interior setting. The Bronte By Moon blankets and throws in violet, heather and lilac offer beautifully soft purple tones that would be a great addition to any sofa or bed for spring.
Freshen up with accessories
Bring lots of light into your home this spring by adopting the use of multiple mirrors in rooms which will reflect daylight beautifully while creating the illusion of a bigger space. Rooms that will benefit from a brand new mirror strategically placed to highlight the room wonderfully include hallways, lounges and bedrooms. Our range of mirrors offers a contemporary take on the classic mirror design, with Umbra mirrors displaying the popular geometric metal frame and circle mirrors which would look fantastic in bathrooms. Position your wall mirror so it’s angled to reflect the most light from a window to brighten up a room effortlessly.
Another way to change the feel of a room in time for spring is to rethink your lighting design and upgrade current lampshades. The popular Eos feather pendant shade from Vita Copenhagen has had an update with the latest light brown shade. Available as pendant shades, tripod table lamps or large tripod floor lamps, the Vita Copenhagen Eos feather light is a lovely statement light option if you’re looking for something fresh and light.
Floral finishing touches
What says springtime more than a fresh bouquet of flowers? If you can’t seem to keep your plants or flowers alive, then simply opt for faux ones! There are many realistic artificial flowers available in a whole host of different varieties, from arching orchids to banana leaf plants. We love tulips as the perfect spring flower. Whether you opt for the real thing or go for faux flowers, our range of decorative vases is on hand to provide an extra decorative element.
Clear glass vases are really versatile and show the full length of the flower arrangement which can be great for any size flower. We love the glass vases with ash bases from LSA International as a wonderful springtime vase option as there are different colours to choose from to keep things looking coordinated. Embrace the purple homeware trend through your choice of vase with the stunning LSA International mouth blown glass pleat vases which would look amazing placed on a console table in a hallway or as a centrepiece in a dining room.
