Fresh homewares to bring in spring 2020
Article posted: November 10, 2020
Every year, the prospect of spring prompts us to see our surroundings with new eyes, and to yearn for fresh, bright and tidy spaces. In other words, it’s the season of cleaning and decluttering.
In Camberwell, this is the time we start seeking out new season colour palettes and styles, and scouring home decorating magazines for inspiration.
The good news is that you don’t need a crack squad of tradesmen or a pricey interior designer to achieve a fresh new look. The key is learning the decorating concepts of the new season, so you can add a touch here and there and build on the look.
Here are the three home decorating themes trending this spring, all of which you can apply to your own home by shopping at Camberwell’s homeware stores.
Homewares trend #1: Natural elements
Homewares are returning to nature this spring. That means wooden pieces displaying their natural grain, fabrics created from untreated yarn, and colours that reflect seaside views and outdoor greenery.
In the kitchen and dining rooms of Camberwell, we’ll see solid wood cheeseboards and grazing plates and placemats. Wooden salad sets and serving bowls are making a comeback, a nod to 70s dining.
Woven baskets and straw boxes will help to contain clutter, while also serving as natural objects d’art.
Throughout the house, colour palettes are going au naturel, with creams, greens, and tan lending neutral tones to natural textures. Raw silk and cotton cushion covers are juxtaposed with the softness of fine Egyptian and Italian linen sheets and light throws.
Homewares trend #2: Coastal touch
Take inspiration from the seaside holidays of your childhood to create a home makeover that’s completely on trend this spring.
Bedrooms form an expanse of blues and greens, with splashes of white and sand. Living areas are relaxed in faded blues and creams, reminiscent of balmy spring evenings.
Chambray is the shade of the season, dominating the homeware stores of Camberwell, and can be found across bed sheets, towels, cushions, and throws.
Colour makes a splash on tabletops, with dining sets in sunshine yellow or ocean turquoise, as tropical or palm tree prints transport dinner party guests back to their favourite beachside trips.
Homewares trend #3: Australiana
From the rich red earth of its centre to the pastel hues of the Great Barrier Reef, the natural palette of Australia is as vast as its landscape and as unique as its wildlife. It’s also one of the key inspirations for home decorating this spring.
Not since Jenny Kee’s koala jumpers took the 80s by storm has Australiana been so chic. Think deep earthy tones, cool leafy greens, and warm wattle yellow to bring a touch of the Australian landscape indoors.
