Spring has sprung, we’ve scrubbed our home top to bottom and now we’re ready for a furnishing refresh! Etsy‘s home décor guide, outlining the latest design trends, listed below, is sure to help make our space sing for spring! —Vita Daily
japandi. As many of us continue to spend time at home, clutter-free-yet-cosy spaces are top of mind. Enter Japandi: a hybrid of Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetics that shoppers are welcoming into their homes. Japandi fuses modern minimalist and warm rustic styles, bringing both tranquility and comfort to any space.
travertine. Marble is making way for another durable, sustainable material in home dêcor: travertine. This time-honoured material has gotten a cooler upgrade since the 1980s and is showing up as the “new” neutral in our homes, with Etsy shoppers especially looking for travertine tables—both vintage and handmade.
wavy, squiggly and curvy décor. There’s a new shape making waves in our homes: squiggly, curvy decor. Somewhere between a zig-zag and an arch, these motifs are showing up all over and shoppers are definitely taking note: there’s been a staggering 28,236 per cent increase in searches for wavy candles and 5,296 per cent increase in searches for wavy mirrors on Etsy! The trend can be incorporated into decor as subtly as in a mug handle or as statement-making as in a floor-length mirror.
the home sanctuary. It’s more important than ever to find moments of relaxation and shoppers are taking refuge in their own homes by creating soothing, stress-free sanctuaries. Creating spa-like atmospheres in bathrooms is one popular way to unwind—Etsy has seen increases in searches for eucalyptus shower bundles, bath caddies and waffle towels. Shoppers are also adding more greenery to their spaces as a way to promote tranquility and connect with nature. In fact, Etsy pros are calling olive trees the new “it” plant, seeing an increase in searches for olive trees, both real and faux. Move over, fiddle leaf fig trees!
checkered prints. Maybe it’s the recent board game boom, but checkerboard prints are reemerging as the latest comeback trend in décor. This must-have pattern—gingham’s modern cousin—is incredibly versatile and can be incorporated into home design in a variety of colour combinations.
mushroom motifs. Fungi are making their way from gardens and wellness to home décor. Certainly not a brand new concept, the trend is reminiscent of the 1960s and ’70s, but coming back with a modern twist. Mushroom lamps, a recent social media darling, are taking off!
