Shifting seasons perfect for a spring makeover


As we say goodbye to winter and hello to brighter, longer days, spring represents the perfect time to update your décor, writes the interiors team at Surface View.

Take advantage of the fast-approaching bumper Easter bank holiday weekend and freshen up your home with grown up pastels, flourishing greenery and 2019’s hottest colour ‘Living Coral’.

Millennial Pink

Transitioning from fashion to interiors, Millennial Pink continues to have its moment.

A little bit scandi and totally sophisticated, Millennial Pink is seen popping up in commercial and residential spaces.

Surprisingly versatile, this neutral, dusty pink is less girly and more the perfect paired back colour to accompany a myriad of tones – it will even fit with most existing colour schemes, which is an advantage if you don’t fancy a total overhaul.

Whether you’re up for full on pink glamour or just want to dip your toe in the proverbial pink water, Millennial Pink works in both small and large doses.

Inject colour across furniture and accessories, or make a statement and splash across walls and woodwork. We love the impact of a full scale statement wallpaper mural.

Taking a single image and blowing it up to fit the size of your wall not only gives full on ‘wow’ factor but reduces any waste as it’s produced to your exact size.


With housing becoming increasingly sought after, outdoor space remains a luxury.

Whether you’re lucky enough to have a sprawling garden or your home is dotted with indoor houseplants, the attraction of nurturing a living organism in an ever developing urban jungle is growing.

With ample health and wellbeing benefits – including purifying the air, increasing concentration and productivity – decorating your home with plants can contribute to a more comfortable and relaxed space; with so many benefits, what’s not to love? This year sees the departure from the tropical trend into more leafy botanicals. From individual studies to full blown garden scenes, create a sanctuary with evergreen greenery.

If you’re not naturally green fingered, introduce botanicals into your home through wall coverings and accessories.

Living Coral

Springing up everywhere from fashion to beauty, gifts, accessories and homeware, ‘Living Coral’ is a mood-boosting shade that is perfect for fresh and fun interiors.

Pantone’s ‘Colour of the Year’ for 2019 is described as ‘symbolising our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits’. And while it might appear restrictive, Living Coral can actually be paired with a host of colours.

Team coral with pale pinks and whites for a strong pastel, go edgy with bold, vivid colour pops of blue, turquoise and green for a more striking look, or use it discerningly with earthy terracotta, mixed with materials like wood and cork.

Wallpaper murals are a fantastic way to inject coral into your space. However you use it, you can guarantee that the warm coral tone is the perfect smile-inducing colour to brighten your home.
