While natural materials and raw materials gain more importance in line with a sustainable decoration theme, a spring season awaits us where we will adopt different colors and focus on timeless pieces. Interior Architect Eda Tahmaz analyzed the prominent trends of the season, changes in materials and colors, and rising trends for homeowners who want to renovate their homes and add a living texture to their living spaces in line with the ‘rebirth’ theme of spring .
Stating that the Scandinavian style, which is often preferred, started to return to the 1970s, Tahmaz thinks that this style should also be interpreted with a more lively and pleasant color palette. In addition to live coral, which is also the color of the year, tangerine yellow, turquoise and green colors suit the distinctive geometric forms of the 70s. Noting that the mustard color, which is used with great admiration for its unique appearance, fits well this season, the interior architect signals that the mustard color will be used in larger areas this year, rather than in a single sofa or in small details such as accessories. The alternative that gives the most eye-catching result that can be used with this color is indigo blue. According to Tahmaz, the style ‘mid-century modern ‘, which will open a new field in decoration for the supporters of the minimalist movement, is ideal for applying in the spring. In this style, which is dominated by clearer and straighter lines, you can decorate your whole house with 3 colors you choose from a color palette, plain and straight forms are enough.
Emphasizing that together with the rising sustainable design motto, recycled materials will be used in materials, Tahmaz believes that materials such as paper, wire and plastic can be recycled and used. It is possible to reflect the value given to nature to decoration with the use of materials such as plastic foil produced from recycled pet bottles. Small touches can also be made with live plants to the interiors where wood can also be used in a transformed form.
In this period when handcrafted products are popular, where individuals can reflect their artistic views, Tahmaz said that we must make room for woven fabrics made of raw materials in our spring decorations. The feeling is one-to-one with the revival effect of spring. The trend, which was born as a competitor to the trendy minimalist trend, ‘mix and match’ , shows itself in patterns and initiates a trend towards combinations of different patterns. Expressing that some tricks should be considered while doing this, the interior architect says that different tones of the same color palette should be used. In an interior decorated with earth tones, if a combination that is not contrary to these tones but combines several different patterns is preferred, a harmony with differences can be achieved.
