Beyond reducing our carbon footprint, sustainability is about reconnecting with nature in a fundamental way. Give a nod to the great outdoors by incorporating natural, organic materials—such as wood, stone and plant life—to add a raw texture and timeless appeal that works with a range of interior styles.
Philippo Organic Bowl, available at Valency.
Whether artistically rendered or the real deal, elaborate florals will bring your home to life in a chic and cheerful way. Look for lush bouquets in eye-catching hues and don’t hesitate to mix different shapes, colours and sizes to make a seasonally appropriate statement that’s anything but staid.
Floral arrangement, available at Teatro Verde.
Pairing different metals, from gold and silver to copper and bronze, creates a dynamic, three-dimensional effect while adding a contemporary edge to any room. Try balancing different tones, such as cool silver with splashes of warm rose gold, for a beautifully balanced look.
Zanetto Essenza Vase, available at Valency.
Memphis design is having a moment. Add a touch of the “Bauhaus-meets-Fisher-Price” aesthetic to your home by embracing simple geometric shapes, flat colours combined in bold, contrasting palettes and stylized graphic patterns featuring abstract squiggles and angular stripes.
Heidi Spector “The Church of My Love” cube, available at Galerie de Bellefeuille.
Seventies style is back with a twist, presenting soft proportions and sinewy forms as covetable alternatives to the sharp, ultramodern lines currently dominating the design scene. Not ready to replace your rectangular sectional with a curved sofa just yet? Start with a curved armchair or stool for a more subtle introduction to the trend.
Sand Stool, available at Bois et Cuir.
Taking a cue from eclectic and exotic textiles, Japanese-inspired “shibori”—along with other inky washes and patterns—is making waves in home decor this spring. Bring a glam, globetrotter touch to your space with throw pillows, blankets and other upholstered accents featuring these on-trend, to-dye-for prints.
