Spring is the perfect time to revive the home with the trends you love. It offers a chance to bring the outdoors in, add a splash of colour and create a lifestyle for living. This year, there’s a mix of new and returning trends, including bold colours, natural materials, as well as florals and Mediterranean home inspiration.
1. Floral delights
Florals is a trend that will never lose its appeal. It brings life to any part of the home, integrating style and elegance with hints of bold colour or subtle botanical accents. It’s fairly easy to incorporate florals into the home – Sophie’s Rose collection works perfectly in the kitchen, adding a classic and quintessentially British feel that is timeless. Pretty and practical, our handmade Rose trays double up as decorative art mixed with an everyday functional essential – you can even use them to hide any kitchen plug sockets for a seamless and uncluttered look. Pair with the matching apron, double oven glove and tea towel for a coordinated floral kitchen.
Bring beautiful blooms to the home with patterned table and kitchenware featuring pops of colour. This Poppy Meadow design is sure to delight, displaying the colourful spectacles of poppy meadows with a warm neutral ground colour, celebrating with blossoming red, pink and white poppies, delicate British bluebells, cornflowers, and an abundance of buds ready to burst. This beautiful collection adds summer style to the home throughout the year.
2. Earthy tones mixed with natural materials
We love adding soft earthy tones to the home as they can make such an impact – offering peace and tranquillity mixed with simplicity and warmth. Natural materials can be combined with almost any other style – for the kitchen, introduce wooden chopping boards which boast a natural and rustic feel! Wooden kitchen stools also add rustic charm and complement any type of kitchen, from country décor to industrialised – made from solid European oak, these Oak Bar Stools are simply stylish.
You can add neutral charm to any tablescape with fabrics made from 100% linens. Linen is known for its strength and durability and is also hypoallergenic, making it suitable for those with allergies and sensitive skin. It's also naturally anti-bacterial and will soften over time. Pure linen fabrics will have 'slubs', these imperfections are signs it's made from true linen fibres and not a polyester mix – this adds that rustic and charming feel we love. Discover linen tablecloths, table runners, napkins, and placemats!
3. Bring the outdoors in
Spring is the perfect time to bring the outdoors in, adding life, greenery and a fresh feeling to the home. From alfresco dining to featuring faux flowers around the house, there are plenty of ways you can connect with nature throughout the home. Faux flowers offer ever-lasting greenery and can be repurposed for table settings and centrepieces, and can be mixed and matched to display seasonal flowers all year round.
For beautiful homewares that invite nature into the home, discover Sophie’s Floral and Nature designs, which have been inspired by the things we love in our gardens! From Bees and Dragonflies that dance through the sky in the summer months to florals that bring brightness to our homes.
4. All things bright and beautiful
At Sophie Allport, one of our core values has always been to recognise the importance of colour, and this is something we live by. Colourful living is set to make a comeback with bold and bright colours – we’re seeing trends of greens, timeless blues and warm earth colours. From bedding, cushions and tablescapes to throws, mugs and accessories, there are lots of ways you can incorporate colourful living into the home. Don’t be afraid to layer colours with different textures, materials, and patterns - it'll add personality to any space. We are loving Sophie’s Sunflower design, which features cheerful and bright blooms.
5. Mediterranean inspiration
Mediterranean living is something that has been on the rise throughout the years, and it’s something we are here for! With cool colours paired with natural materials, it’s a great way to add holiday sunshine and living to the home. Sophies Olive design is inspired by Mediterranean living, offering a feeling of warmth, joy and sun-kissed summer skin. Painted against a neutral rustic background, the olive leaves hold fabulous tones of greens and silvery blues that adds a fresh and natural feeling and invites everlasting greenery into the home. This summer design will add elegance and charm paired with Mediterranean living.
