10 Spring Interior Design Ideas

It’s the season for spring cleaning, so why not go one step further and add a touch of spring-inspired decor to your home?

Here are 10 of the best interior design trends of 2022 to help you get your home ready for the new season. 

1. Blend Indoor and Outdoor Living

Spending more time at home than usual over the past two years has changed how many people see their gardens. Rather than being a separate space, homeowners are looking for ways to connect the indoors with outdoors as an extension to their home.

Depending on your budget, you could consider fitting large bi-folding doors to the rear of your home so that you can fully open your home to the fresh springtime air. Alternatively, find ways to blur the boundary between indoor and outdoor; use exterior rugs, cushions and furniture on your patio or decking that match the colour palettes inside your home.

2. Mix Up your Colours and Textures

Spring is the season for bright yellows and pastel hues, so why not incorporate these vibrant hues into your home? Combine neutral earthy tones and pastel pinks with emerald green and sunshine yellow to add depth to each room. You could also mix up your textures with a combination of wool throws, linen cushions, and tasselled rugs for a luxurious multi-sensory experience.

3. Refresh your Walls with New Artwork 

Renewal and rejuvenation are the predominant themes of spring, which makes it the perfect time to revamp your walls with a pop of artwork. 
Brightly coloured graphics and uplifting quotes look incredible mounted on a muted living room wall, while landscape pieces, dusky pinks and soft sky-blues would add a calming element to any bedroom or home office. You could even get creative with different shapes, materials and 3D prints to really make your walls stand out.

4. Biophilic Themes

The term ‘biophilia’ was originally used by an American sociobiologist to mean “an instinctive bond or sense of affinity of human beings with nature”.  In relation to interior design, adopting a biophilic approach means incorporating elements of our the natural environment into our homes, which is a perfect way to welcome the new spring season. For example, adding skylights or lighter curtains will help maximise the natural light that comes with spring, while the addition of sliding doors and vertical awning windows can boost ventilation in your home.  

5. Lighter Curtains

Spring is the time to put away the dark winter curtains and brighten up your windows with a pair of light and airy curtains. Sheer fabrics and materials such as linen and chenille are perfect for warmer seasons. In terms of a colour palette, soft yellows, muted greens and pastel pinks are beautiful for spring, while floral roller blinds are a great way to add a springtime statement to any room.

6. Add Hints of Green

The colour green is known for its ability to evoke a sense of peace and harmony and helps us feel more connected to nature. 
Adding a sage green wall to your home office or an olive-green sofa to your living room can help to transform your space into a tranquil oasis. Complementing the green shade with neutral tones, pastel pinks or a pop of colour can add a trendy contemporary twist.

Adding plants to your home is not only a great way to add greenery to your home but can also help improve the air quality. The most effective plants for this include the Boston fern, the rubber tree, spider plant and Ficus tree. 

7. Fill your Home with Flowers in Bloom

Yellow daffodils, pink tulips and beautiful bluebells are all in bloom during the spring, so why not add a colourful bouquet, seasonal wreath, or floral centrepiece to your home as a pleasant reminder that spring has finally sprung. Alternatively, for a longer-lasting addition to your home, why not add a colourful floral wall or some charming watercolour flower prints to your wall.

8. Sustainable Soft Furnishings

As we transition from winter into spring, many people decide to overhaul their interior décor with newer, fresher soft furnishings. This year, why not choose to invest in more sustainable fabrics?

Breathable and chemical-free fabrics are much better for the environment and last much longer than synthetic materials. Consider purchasing timber, wool and linen soft furnishings, as well as reusing and repurposing existing furniture.  

9. Organised Spaces

Spring is the season for cleaning and organising. Utilise vacuum packs for all your winter clothes and duvets and shoe storage boxes to hide your winter boots during the summer.

Consider adding shelves or wall hooks to enhance your storage for utensils, bottles, jars, and tea towels in the kitchen. In your bathroom, use flexible caddies and woven storage baskets to house all your loose toiletries, while small hammocks that attach to ceilings are great for storing soft toys in bedrooms. Investing in space-saving furniture such as drop-down desks, storage beds and ottomans are also incredibly effective for maximising space in your home. 

10. Multi-Functional Rooms

With many of us still working from home, multi-functional spaces continue to be an essential requirement in most UK households. 

Spring is a great time to get rid of your clutter and create open-plan spaces that can be used flexibly by all the family. If you have a guest room, consider swapping out the bed for a convertible sleeping chair so that when you don’t need to use it as a bed, you can use it as a chill-out space or home office. Side tables that double up as seating and floating desks that pull down from the wall are fantastic space savers and allow you to use the space in a convenient, multi-functional way.
