The must-have spring interiors trend is distinctly the painterly effect. Patterns are fluid and colours vibrant, lending fresh character and beauty to our homes this season.
There's watery inks, visible brush strokes and bold paint splatters that celebrate the time-honoured techniques of the artist. Transform your home into a work of art with these four unique styles...
Impressionist Interior Design Trend
Brush strokes are short and rapidly applied, lending great movement and life to patterns.
Watercolours Interior Design Trend
Florals are depicted in watery relief, while colours are soft and run into one another creating a delicate feel. A hint of the Oriental brings a smart edge to this style. This makes it easy to introduce pops of brighter blue, orange or yellow.
Abstract Interior Design Trend
The rules are: there are no rules. This style places less emphasis on subject and more on colour, shape and form. Paint is splattered, applied in solid blocks or left to dribble down, while shapes and lines are simplified. They are often created using freehand, for ultimate graphic intensity.
