Think spring cleaning is just about vacuuming and dusting? Think again. Now’s the time to clear out anything you’re no longer in love with and give your decor a refresh. To help start that process, we’ve gathered the latest home trends for spring that are blowing up onPinterest and Etsy, along with a few to ditch (see ya, chevron!).
BLACK AND WHITE DECOR
Minimalism is in. While bright chevron patterns were huge a few years ago, we’ve noticed muted color palettes replacing all things colorful. In fact, black and white decor has increased 40 percent since last year alone on Pinterest.
Last year was about all things metallic. This spring, Etsy vendors are using the exact opposite texture in their goods, including oxidized metals, matte glazes, and chalk-finish paints. The best news? Matte-finished decor looks amazing next to metallic objects—so hang on to all of those luxe gold and copper items you picked up in 2015.

MACRAMÉ AND CROCHET TEXTILES
According to Pinterest, boho-chic style isn’t just for Coachella anymore. They’ve noticed people pinning macramé textiles 35 percent more than they were last year. Don’t know how to incorporate this 70s trend into your home? We’d love to take a nap in this crochet hammock. We’ll take that pool, too.
