Stylish Home Decor Trends For Spring
Spring is in the air. Time to spruce up your space with a fresh new vibe. One of the top 2021 home decor trends is color, so we were excited when Pantone announced not one, but two Colors of the Year: Ultimate Grey and Illuminating (Yellow). Sleek modern styles continue to prevail, but warmed with a strong dose of hygge, a Danish term that connotes comfort. Other major trends include gold and silver metallic accents, sculptural lighting, curved shapes, plush velvets, raw materials such as rattan and reclaimed wood, and lots of texture. Great news for vintage lovers – nostalgia will continue to be a favorite design mood in the coming year. We’ve rounded up some inspiring ideas, along with local Long Beach resources near 442 Residences, so you can get the look you love.
Get ready for a brighter future. Ultimate Grey and Illuminating Yellow are a marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting. Practical and rock solid, but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope. These hues will inspire your lifestyle, from fashion and beauty to design and home decor.
