Many people refresh their home décor when the seasons change.

This spring, it’s as easy as reaching for anything nature inspired or with natural elements. Botanical prints, shells, coral, floral pillows and wood elements offer a nice balance to all the technology in homes these days.

Those were just two décor trends that filled the showrooms at DallasMarketCenter’s home and gift market recently.

Other trends include small pops of color on everything from large lidded jars to boxes to dinnerware. Berry, peacock, yellow, orange, pink, red, green, cobalt blue and purple seem to dominate, although pastel pink and blue – Pantone’s colors of the year – showed up occasionally. Light gray appears as a sophisticated alternative.

Circles, squares and triangles, a nod to the 1970s, accent vases, pictures, dinner ware and metal art.

While rustic and industrial looks continue to be popular, they’re often mixed with other styles for more interest or a bit of surprise, such as a marble topped table with dark steel legs.

Lanterns as décor pieces aren’t going away and, in fact, one of the key looks in lighting is the lantern fixture.  Lantern and statement pendant lights are a nice change from chandeliers, which are fine but other styles look fresh and modern.

Rounding out the trends are Oriental themes, texture, typography both individual large letters and gold everything. Gold isn’t exactly new but some people are still getting used to it.
