Interior Design Spring Design Trends
If you are looking for some cool interior design ideas to freshen up your home this spring, but haven’t got a clue where to begin, here’s some help for you! The Farthing recently spoke to nine top interior designers and asked them about their favorite design trends and predictions for the coming season. The highlights were then compiled in this stunning infographic, which we have shared below.
Interior design, just like fashion, never stops evolving, and many yesteryear trends and styles are expected to make successful comebacks. Award-winning interior designer Rebecca James predicts a sort of revival of the Brutalist movement this year, though in a slightly pared-back way. Yanic Simard, one of Canada’s top names interior décor and design, predicts the use of a lot of color in lighting, including bright lampshades and colored glass pendants. But one thing all experts seem to agree on is that we can expect to see a lot of metals, especially brass, copper and rose gold, this spring.
And if you want timeless design trends that never fail to impress your guests, take a tip or two from the favorite design trends of these experts and check out encaustic geometric tiles (a top favorite of UK’s famous interior designer, Linda Barker) or luxe, white marble (interior design writer and blogger Kimberly Duran’s pick).

SPRING DESIGN TRENDS
“I love the metallic trend, particularly for brass, copper, and rose gold. I love too, the trend for using pattern on tiles both in the bathroom and bedroom. Encaustic geometric tiles are my favourite at the moment.” – Linda Barker
“Less is more is a major design trend as well as an Art Moderne/French Art Deco look.” – Gail Green
“The first thing we will be seeing a lot of metals, especially the use of copper. You can also be ready to see a ton of colour in lighting, and I love lighting (my idea of comfort after all is a good lamp to be read by!) – so bright hued shades, coloured glass pendants, it’s the new way to inject saturation in your space.” – Yanic Simard
“Well despite using gold and brass in my interiors for the last 4 years, it seems that I’m finally on trend! Ha! I also love the trend for white marble – it’s just such a luxe material.” – Kimberly Duran
“I love the dramatic lighting trend, especially the trend for Edison bulbs. I have seen wonderful lighting schemes created in restaurants that consist simply of individual pendants hung together in groups. – Kelly Davies
“I’m in love with Pantone colour of the year – I love pastels the mix of ambre. I’ve just discovered tiling and how to use it to make a big statement in the home when used in unusual ways (I’m about to tile my staircase).” – Maxine Brady
“I really love all the metallic finishes on furniture and accessories. From bronze to rose gold – they are so warm and gorgeous. I am also excited about color making its comeback. I love seeing bold prints and textures in vibrant colors.” – Ramona Griffin
“This spring, I think we will still see a lot of metallics, but also I think quite stark palettes. Lots of furs and textures, white, and crisp but also foliage. I think will be a bit of a trend spring to summer.” – Sarah Myall
“There are quite a few trends that I think we will see in 2016. I’m noticing a sort of revival of the Brutalist movement, but in a more pared back way. This trend can also be interlinked with another trend of using earthly/raw materials and minerals such as precious stones as accents and accessories.” – Rebecca James
