Three images showing home decor in natural, earthy tones to indicate home decor trends.

As we thaw from the chill of winter, it’s time for consumers to be inspired by and rejuvenate their living spaces with the latest home decor trends. The new season combines refreshing themes and designs, from serene color schemes and styling to sustainable materials. 

This blog suggests marketing ideas for each trend that could help kickstart your spring/summer campaigns. Let’s dive into the freshest trends that your consumers will be looking to emulate this year.

Embracing Neutral Color Pallets

One of the most noticeable shifts this season is the gravitation towards neutral color pallets. This trend emphasizes soft, muted hues that create a tranquil and welcoming environment. Think shades of beige, soft grays, and off-whites that reflect natural light and make spaces appear larger. A neutral palette is a versatile backdrop for any design style, allowing personal items and art pieces to stand out. Incorporating these subtle tones into your home decor can lead to a timeless aesthetic that calms the mind and soothes the soul.

An example of showcasing this across marketing assets such as social media or home decor online catalogs could be to stage a living room with a sleek, modern sofa in a soft gray, complemented by off-white rugs and beige throw pillows. You can bathe the setting in natural light to accentuate the calming effect of the neutral colors. In the product images, make sure the space appears open, airy, and inviting, illustrating how they contribute to a serene home environment.

Earthy Tones: Bringing the Outside In Is A Key Home Decor Trend

This spring, earthy tones are making a significant impact on home decor. “We’re all going to be embracing the beauty of nature by incorporating tones inspired by the natural world like greens, browns, and warm neutrals into our homes.” This trend concerns grounding your space with colors that echo the natural world. By integrating shades that remind us of the soil, grass, and trees, we invite a piece of the outdoors into our living environments. This can be achieved through wall colors, textile choices, and decorative elements, creating a sense of harmony and balance within the home.

Maxine Brady has collated the winning earthy tones for this season:

  • According to Pinterest the on-trend new colour for 2024 is ‘Apricot Crush’. This a warm peachy shade that looks so good in so many rooms — and it will sit beautifully with creams, tans and neutrals.
  • Valspar Paints announced its 2024 paint shade of the year as ‘Renew Blue,’ a soft shade inspired by the sky that will create a soothing environment in your home. Blues are notoriously difficult to decorate with as they appear cold, but this shade has a hint of warmth, so it is a good alternative. 
  • While Dulux has picked out ‘Sweet Embrace’ as its color of the year, it’s a pale plumy shade with a good neutral tone that adds warmth and depth to our interiors.

An inspiring way to showcase this trend can be to create a series of product photographs featuring earth-toned ceramics, green velvet cushions, and decorative pieces in rich browns and muted greens. Set these images against a backdrop of indoor plants and natural wood textures to emphasize the connection to nature. With an online catalog, you can further highlight this trend by including a dedicated section encouraging customers to bring the earth’s grounding energy into their homes.

Sustainable Products: Eco-friendly Choices

Sustainability continues to be a key focus in home decor trends. This spring, more homeowners opt for eco-friendly products and materials that add aesthetic value and promote environmental well-being. There are countless ways to incorporate sustainable products into your decor, from reclaimed wood furniture to organic cotton textiles and bamboo flooring. By choosing items made from renewable resources or recycled materials, you contribute to a healthier planet while crafting a stylish, eco-conscious home.

Creating a website landing page or a section on your website that specifically showcases your sustainable products is a good way to allow consumers to navigate your sustainable product range easily — assign icons to each product photo that indicate their sustainable attributes, such as “Biodegradable,” “Recycled,” or “Organic.”

You can also publish an online catalog that specifically showcases your sustainable products and takes consumers on how your business promotes sustainability. 

You can set the imagery in minimalist, naturally lit environments to underscore the clean, green aspect of the products, accompanied by a tagline like “Eco-chic solutions for your sustainable home.”

Nature-inspired Home Decor Trends: A Breath of Fresh Air

Nature-inspired decor is becoming increasingly popular in line with the earthy tones trend. Bringing nature indoors through plants, natural fibers, and nature-themed artworks can transform your living space into a serene oasis. Large windows that allow natural light to flood in, botanical prints, and indoor water features can enhance this effect, creating a peaceful retreat that blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living. This trend celebrates the beauty of the natural world and its calming, rejuvenating properties.

Create a campaign specifically for nature-inspired products, as this is a highly visual trend; products can be showcased in settings filled with plants and natural light, with captions suggesting ways to infuse living spaces with the beauty and calm of the outdoors. Use vibrant images that evoke a sense of being in a lush garden or tranquil forest, and feature a blog post or section dedicated to “Bringing Nature Indoors,” offering styling tips, DIY advice, and product recommendations.

Quiet Luxury: Subtle Opulence

According to Jane at Home, “a quiet luxury space might include neutral hues, streamlined silhouettes, sumptuous fabrics, warm woods, and pared-back decor — anything that evokes a relaxed, intentional way of living.” 

This approach to home decor is all about embracing simplicity and understated elegance. It’s about creating a space that feels like a personal sanctuary without clutter. Think of it as recreating the serene ambiance of a luxury hotel room in your own bedroom. Quiet luxury is about investing in quality pieces that stand the test of time, fostering a sense of peace and comfort.

For example, you can create a campaign across social media platforms that showcases the best ‘quiet luxury hotel rooms’ and highlight the elements used to create the quiet luxury feel. Take this a step further and link customers to your similar products so that they can create the same look in their own homes.

Art Deco Designs: A Nostalgic Twist

This spring, art deco designs, particularly in wallpaper, are making a comeback. With their symmetrical patterns, bold geometric shapes, and vibrant colors, Art Deco wallpapers add a touch of glamour and sophistication to any room. This trend allows for creative expression and a bold statement, blending vintage elegance with modern flair. Whether you opt for a feature wall or to envelop an entire room, art deco designs can elevate your home decor with their timeless appeal.

Art deco can be a tricky trend to style so providing consumers with lots of inspiration is key here.
