Spring Home Decor Trends That Will Brighten Your Home


The arrival of spring brings hope and anticipation of better weather and clear, sunny skies. While Grand Forks homes may still be under a few showers, the tide is turning and sunshine and warmer temperatures are fast approaching. While you wait for the weather to catch up, you can get a head start on spring by incorporating some of the season’s brightest decor trends.

If you’re grown weary of some of the rooms in your home over the winter, you’ll be amazed at the changes the addition of wallpaper can make. One of the biggest trends right now is wallpaper that looks like marble. The key is to create an accent wall, rather than covering all your walls. From veins of blue to gold marble, there are a variety of color options that will complement the rest of your decor, while adding a refreshing touch to your room, without breaking the bank.

If some of your existing furniture feels a bit heavy for the room, acrylic is the hottest trend to explore. Ideal for smaller rooms, the clear aspect of this material opens up any space. Acrylic dining room chairs, side tables, and even floating frames offer up plenty of ways to make a room brighter and more open. Combining a few of these modern pieces with more classic elements adds vitality to any room.

Homeowners who would like to add some Scandinavian style to their Grand Forks homes don’t have to limit themselves to stark white, grey, and matte black color schemes. The newest trend is the use of shades of blue, ranging from deep, dark navy to sky blue. While these colors may still feel cool, you can warm the room up with the addition of copper accents. Large coffee table trays, hammered copper vases, pendant lamps, and a wealth of other accessories are available in both shiny and matte copper finishes.

Add in plenty of candles and cozy throw blankets in earthy colors and you’ll have a room that evokes the Danish concept of hygge: simple living that is rich in comfort and satisfaction.
