The challenge was to provide ideas for updating a home for spring, focusing on a particular trend or colour, with all products costing £80 or less.
It was the geometric trend in home interiors that jumped out at me this time, and particularly the uplifting, zingy and cheerful colours being used in spring 2013 ranges, moving away from the monochrome blacks and whites of winter.
Home interior trends are often inspired and influenced by designs seen on the fashion catwalks, and it’s no exception with the latest geometric trend.
A wide range of geometric themed products are available from stores, with designs incorporating triangles, cubes and hexagons proving particularly popular. They certainly help create some interesting products, with the geometric trend working well as a repeat pattern on products such as cushions, wallpaper and even lighting.
As far as prices go, a quick saunter along the high street reveals a brilliant selection of geometric homeware designs with many at very affordable prices, so updating your home needn’t cause your wallet too much trauma!
Here are some of my favourite spring geometric product picks:
4. Tress tea towel by Sian Elin, £12 from Not On The High Street (the design is also available as a cushion, for £55)
7. Green engraved candle with wooden plate, £6 from Matalan
10. Pastel pop triangular print bath mat, £10 from Matalan
Geometric wall design ideas
If you want to update your decor too, there are some fab wallpaper ideas featuring geometric patterns.
I love the Trellis design wallpaper by Harlequin, which is available in a lovely choice of colours ideal for spring, but it’s top of the budget at £79 a roll…it could be okay if you’ve only got one wall to paper, but not so great otherwise.
What do you think of the spring geometrics trend, will you be using it in your home?
