Spring is finally upon us and with it new design trends. According to the head designer of H&M Home, exoticism and harmony are the two keywords for Spring 2017. On the exotic side, the tropics are a major influence with large scale botanical prints showing up on everything from curtains, to furniture to wallpaper – with the odd crocodile or monkey thrown in for added effect. Another trend that falls on the exotic side is incorporating African-inspired

elements into the home. South African ceramics, Zulu beadwork and woven baskets are all ways to pay homage to several of the continent’s art forms. As for harmony, the health and wellness trend continues to seep into every aspect of life with calming colours and fabrics taking up residence. Also popular, decorating with a philosophical touch as one might in the decor styles of Japan and Scandinavia.
