Six Spring Interior Trends on a budget

Posted by Customer Service on

We love nothing more than perusing Pinterest and pouring over publications featuring home & décor inspiration so we thought we’d look at some affordable & easy ways to stay on trend this Spring.


According to House Beautiful, colour pops are one of the hottest Spring Summer 18 looks for your home. It’s a bold move but one that can be done without replacing big ticket items like sofas & curtains. Aside from mixing brightly coloured scatter cushions, throws & rugs, you can adorn your walls with bursts of colour using pictures and frames. We found lots of colourful frames on Amazon, including these British made ones from Inov8.

For bright colours, bold patterns and playful words check out our selection of limited edition Happy Jackson art prints and for travel lovers, you might be inspired by our minimalist PAN AM prints. These are our top pick art prints to compliment the colour pop trend:


Industrial Chic & Metallic Accents

Pared back industrial chic is high on the list home improvement projects from Good Homes but if you’re not planning on renovating to expose brick and polish up the concrete, what nod can you make toward this trend? The answer might be in the metallic accents that Ideal Home have predicted will take over from rose gold this year.  There are plenty of brass and zinc picture frames around and H&M have some fantastic metal framed mirrors so an industrial-metallic gallery wall should be easy and affordable to achieve. Take inspiration from mum.made.interiors on Instagram who created this look in her downstairs loo!

Finish off the look with some industrial-style lighting and you’re done!

Topical Tropical

This trend is about so much more than simply bringing the outdoors in, although if you’re green-fingered, that might be a good start. It started a while back with tropical prints and flamingos but this season sees slightly darker,moodier prints and the pineapple take centre-stage. There are so many affordable options, it’s hard not to go OTT with this one. Primark has a whole tropical homeware collection  whilst George at ASDA has an entire range of pineapple ornaments including tea light holders, mirrors, vases, lamps, money boxes and even bookends. The closest we come to tropical at SmartArts gallery is our licensed limited edition Jurassic Park collection

Playful 80s

With the resurgence of 80s toys, leopard print coats and a Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake on the cards it’s perhaps no surprise that interiors are following suit. Whilst The Telegraph suggest it’s time to bring back the chintz, we’d like to propose something a little more geek-chic by going back to the future with some movie classics.





Ice cream shades

Could these pastels be a continuation of the 1980s trend? Possibly so but whatever the decade, ice cream is ice cream and it’s tasty. With a hint of lilac, peach and pink hues, we think our delicious chalkboard-style art prints might just add the right flavour for a kitchen refresh.

Indigo Blues

If pastels aren’t your palette, inky blues might be your hue. This isn’t necessarily new, Ideal Home featured this as far back as 2011, but there are some great ways to bring it into 2018. Loaf have introduced a new inky-blue sideboard and, with their vast selection of fabrics, you can have almost any item of furniture you fancy too. If you’re looking to accompany the shade with accessories, why not hang some playful retro-style prints.
