While pastels may have been a ruling trend in the interior design world for the past couple seasons, watercolour prints may be the new kid on the block. With their softly blended patterns and subtle, rainbow hues, watercolour accents can easily usher springtime into your home. Although we may be several weeks away from the arrival of spring, watercolour design can help you embrace the season ahead. We’ve curated our favourite ways to officially brighten your home now, with the infusion of watercolour pieces.

Illuminate your space with floral artwork: For a more literal interpretation of the trend, turn to watercolour art to embrace this cheerful trend. The refreshing look of a yellow, green and pink painting can instantly bring your walls to life. To contrast against your watercolour artwork, turn to grey furnishings, dark violet pillows and a neutral area rug.

Use tie-dye accent cushions for a finishing touch: If you’re not quite ready for statement artwork, try decorating with tie-dye pillows instead. Beautiful shades of ocean blue, white, green and violet create an eye-catching, gorgeous effect. Meanwhile, wooden seating and blinds create the perfect understated setting in which to showcase a pop of colour.

Complete your bedroom with splashy watercolour bedding: This season, vibrant hues are no longer restricted to children’s nurseries or bedrooms. Grown-ups can just as easily embrace watercolours in their private chambers, with luxurious bedspreads. A multicoloured combination of blue, yellow, purple and blue shades will help to invigorate even the most muted space. Meanwhile, turquoise curtains and a pastel blue area rug capture the colour scheme perfectly.
