Spring Interiors – The Natural Trend

Spring is a season for the senses and a great time to freshen up your home. Renew and invigorate any space with colour; from bathrooms to bedrooms and accent walls, paint is an easy way to breathe new life into a room.  If you need advice on a colour scheme, then let our experienced team of interior designers and paint experts help. Foy & Company makes the home decorating process easier, and working together, we can help you achieve your desired look and feel.

Key interior trends for this year include bold and vibrant colour palettes from rich reds to bright citruses and forest greens. Art deco styles, mixing metals and furniture in stylish gold are also right on trend for Spring 2019. Here is some inspiration to get you started:

Classico: everlasting colours such as rich teal, grey flannel, rich gold and apricots.

Night watch: deep greens that look like jade and have references to nature.
