If you’ve already experimented with the sartorial trend of contrasting patterns, you’ll be pleased to know that clashing prints are also creating a sensation right at home. While homeowners once stayed true to a neutral, solid palette, those days are thankfully left in the past. For Spring 2017, quirky and bold colour is set to adorn every room from bedrooms to the living room. If you’re wondering how to decorate with eye-catching vivid prints today, look no further than these tips as you revamp your interior design this season.

Turn to shades of yellow, black and white: Embrace springtime’s lemony hues with a soft explosion of yellow contrasted against basic black white. The look of swirling abstract prints, accent cushions and plush armchairs can instantly create a warm and inviting space for the upcoming warm days.

Contrast vibrant accent cushions against patterned wallpaper: While there’s a certain beauty in ivory comforters and dove grey pillows, colourful chambers are far more fun. To bring this interior design trend into your own bedroom, turn to vintage inspired wallpaper with a green leaf and floral motif. For a finishing touch, pink, yellow and green printed cushions can complete your decorating scheme.

Decorate with pink and lavender hues for a soft pastel finish: If you’re finding the season’s loud tribal prints and zany abstract designs far too wild, stick to muted pastel tones instead. Try transforming your space with comfy cushions in shades of lavender and pale pink, along with a zig-zag print area rug in similar tones. Meanwhile, fluffy white pillows and wooden panelled walls can offset the feminine colours in your space.
