Stylish home accessories are must-haves for total fashion-forward living.

Interior Design Ideas with a Spring Fashion Trend Twist

Use these tealight holders to create a special atmosphere for springtime parties! Playing off the metallic trend of this spring season’s accessories, these Blomus Faro Small Tealight Holders, $33.20 for a set of 3 at All Modern, are fixtures that will create that perfect candlelit glow in any room.

From French designer R+Y Augousti and available at Calypso for $70, this mini-frame (only 2″ x 2″!) is a fresh and understated way to indulge in the snakeskin trend.

Spring Fashion Trend as Home Accessory: Wood & Safari
Invoke the nature-themed accessories of spring fashion trends with these Nanbu Tekki Animal Ornaments, $115 each, from The Future Perfect. The chunky wooden bases are the perfect complement to the graceful and playful lines of the animals’ forms.

Spring Fashion Trend as Home Accessory: Bold Prints
This fun graphic throw pillow celebrates the retro, bold prints that are so on trend this spring fashion season. The Magenta and Orange Hexagon Pillow from South of Market, $395, will brighten up any dull winter space with its cheerful colors.

Spring Fashion Trend as Home Accessory: Floral
Liven up your space with spring’s floral trend. Home accessories, such as a rug, are fun for a seasonal style change.
