7 of the Most Inspiring Spring Living Room Designs
It might not feel like it, but spring is just around the corner. Soon the evenings will lighten, the air will be warmer and the leaves will start to come out on the trees.
As we head out of winter, our interior design tastes change – no longer do we want cosy, warm colours in our living rooms. Spring is undoubtedly all about light, bright spaces and pastel and floral designs.
To get you ready for the new season, we’ve trawled the web for some of the most inspiring spring living room designs. Which is your favourite?
Bursts of Colour
Design by Bhavin Taylor Design
This design by Bhavin Taylor utilises an incredibly simple but effective technique – flashes of colour on a cream or white background. The accent colours of red and orange run through the design, and prevent the room from feeling too cold, whilst it still remains bright and airy. The rug follows the overall colour scheme, pulling the whole design together, whilst the daffodils add an unmistakable hint of spring.

White, Bright & Shabby Chic
Design by Cabbages & Roses
This design by Cabbages and Roses is a masterclass in how to do shabby chic for spring. The key to the look is imperfection – everything should look worn and antique, even if it’s not. The visible texture of the wood means that the room feels light and airy without feeling cold, and the washed out palette makes features, such as the chairs and flowers, really stand out.

Soft pastels and muted colours are always a popular choice in spring. This design blends pale pinks and greens with a cream palette to create a fresh and bright space.

Splashes of Yellow

Is there a more spring-like colour than yellow? This design cleverly draws the eye across the room using splashes of the sunny colour and mixes different textures to add interest. The pale grey walls also prove that you don’t have to stick to a completely white and cream palette to create a bright spring living room.

If you want a luxurious living room design this spring, then this look is for you. VSP Interiors have expertly mixed satin fabrics, with slick smart cream sofas and touches of grandeur, such as the chandelier, to create a truly indulgent space. The cream palette keeps the room light and airy (an essential look for spring), whilst the accent colour purple adds interest.
Bright and Airy
Design by Laura Potter Designs
This design by Laura Potter is the epitome of light bright and spring-like. The contrast between the dark floor and the cream colour palette is particularly effective, drawing the eye upwards and making the ceiling feel higher. Again the rug pulls the whole room together, whilst also adding a touch of warmth to the seating area.

Let There Be Light
Design by Boscolo Interior Design
Is your living room not blessed with natural light? You can create the ‘spring’ effect by cleverly using manmade lighting. This design by Boscolo does exactly that, by placing a large feature light in front of a mirror, causing the light to be bounced around the room and off the pale walls. The lamp in the corner also further illuminates the space.
As we head into spring, living room design is all about bright and airy rooms, neutral palettes and splashes of colour.
