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.

Marble was huge at this year’s NY NOW showcase. But before you (and your wallet) freak out, this trend is all about small touches of luxury—think: candleholders, coasters, planters, and ultra-cool clocks.

GRAY HARDWOOD FLOORS
Going along with the less-is-more trend, people are trading their wooden wall art andmonograms for sophisticated gray hardwood floors (Pins around this unexpected floor color have increased over 20 percent since 2015!).
GLOBAL FOLK TEXTILES
While mudcloth and shibori textiles were everywhere in 2015, we’ve noticed that colorfulembroidered and woven fabrics (think: vivid Guatemalan designs and Turkish Kilim pillows and rugs) have taken their place.

Call it the Joanna Gaines effect, but modern and rustic farmhouse kitchens (like you’d see on HGTV’s Fixer Upper) are all over Pinterest these days, while Mediterranean-inspiredItalian kitchens are a thing of the past.
