All things tropical
This tropical trend is still going strong! Tropical prints were popular last summer and are continuing to thrive. Inspired by exotic islands and lush forests, this home décor look will transform your home into a tropical paradise. Say “aloha’” to tropical leaf throw pillows, botanical wall art and rich green hues. Make a splash with large jungle leaf rugs and must-have pineapple curtains.
Don’t forget about the houseplants! A large leaf plant such as a fiddle-leaf fig or a bright bird of paradise plant will surely create and embrace the tropical atmosphere. Indoor tropical plants can help liven up your home, boost your mood and can create a green oasis in each room.
Ultra violet vibes
Voted the Pantone colour of the year for 2018, ultra violet is stunning, regal and versatile. This colour is dominating design trends everywhere. It can add dramatic flair and character to large or small furniture pieces. Ultra violet throw pillows or an ultra violet fleece throw will look luxurious and keep you warm for Netflix nights.
Last year metallic was trendy in the design world, but this year think more gold. Any gold detailing on door knobs, mirrors and picture frames will make your home more Instagram worthy and adds a touch of elegance to your décor. Gold accents are timeless, sophisticated and simple to incorporate in your space.
Geometrics are big this season, especially for floor tiles and wallpaper. Any type of geometric tiles look spectacular in a bathroom whether they are hexagon shaped and full of colour or more on the subtle side. To help create a daring statement for a room, choose a geometric wallpaper. A vibrant multi-coloured wallpaper would be fun for a tween or teenager to have in their bedroom. If you have a home office or are thinking about lighting up the entrance hallway of your home, a geometric wallpaper could add an extra dose of creative energy and revitalize the place. Whether its triangles, circles or squares, geometric patterns are visually appealing and add symmetry to any room.
Along with refreshing your home with spring décor, it’s also a good time of year to revive and review your home insurance policy. A reliable home insurance can complement a beautiful home quite nicely. Contact a Desjardins Insurance Licensed insurance Advisor to make sure your home and belongings are protected.
