Guest blog: Trends for spring and beyond

Date Posted

This spring we’ve invited Rachel Best, Design Director at Oasis Interior Design, to talk us through the latest trends for 2024. Oasis are a specialist interior design company, who's work you’ll have seen at many of our show homes, including The Yews in Tangmere. We also have a few new ones popping up soon, which we'll be giving you a sneak preview of in this blog. Now. Over to Oasis!

Interior trends for spring and beyond: nature takes centre stage. 

This spring, we bid farewell to the minimalism and dramatic tones of previous years, welcoming a design era inspired by nature's tranquillity. Muted blues, pinks, and greens create an inviting atmosphere, while soft, warm neutrals – including beige – complement the surging popularity of natural materials like rattan, wicker, and cane in furniture and lighting. 


Embrace curves and fluidity this season. Swap harsh lines for gentle waves and fluted shapes. Looking for an easy update? New cushions in linen and other natural textures, mixed with velvets.


Replace tropical prints with country garden-inspired florals. For a touch of individuality, incorporate vintage and artisan accessories – your favourite stores likely carry treasures that evoke the charm of a flea market.

Keep an eye out for the "bobbin" micro-trend, adding a quirky, vintage vibe to any room with its distinctive silhouette. Tables, lamps, and even picture frames are embracing this playful detail.

Country and coastal styles are flourishing this year, offering timeless elegance with a fresh bloom. If a more eclectic look is your preference, the seventies are back! Warm browns, olive greens, and terracotta pinks create a captivating yet cool aesthetic. Rattan furniture, oversized ceiling shades, macramé wall hangings, and natural wood accessories embody this trend. 


Embrace curves, mixed metals for added interest, and textured cushions. Consider a touch of vintage luxury with retro-inspired boucle fabric for a unique statement. This year, a touch of seventies-inspired retro adds a playful, stylish edge to your space.
