We can always count on Etsy to show us how to refresh our homes every season, and spring is no exception. We are so ready to swap out our heavy, winter accessories with light and cheery home décor—and these picks top our list.



Last year was all about incorporating hand and eye motfis into our pillows and mugs, which we doubt will disappear anytime soon. To add to our obsession with bringing human elements into our homes, spring’s It trend is all about featuring entire face illustrations into your home. From a handmade ceramic plate to a whimsical planter, the limit doesn’t exist to how you can include this trend in your home.


Marble’s been dominating the home department for years, and while it’s here to stay, it’s terrazzo’s time to shine. The speckled surface channels the seventies, bringing a fun touch to any modern home. You can find ceramics, pillows, and even wallpaper using the trend.


You’ve probably seen the concrete and steel trend, but may have been hesitant to try it because it comes off as cold or too serious. But now, many of these industrial pieces have smooth curves, soft colors, and angled legs to make these pieces warmer while still being sleek and sophisticated. Try the trend with a stool, lamp, or an aluminum planter.


Today, just about everything we do revolves around creating a more peaceful life that makes us feel at ease. Making our homes relaxing and restful is no exception. Bring self-care elements home with incense holders, meditation poufs, and room scents to soothe every sense in your body.

And Etsy’s already ahead of the game for next year. The trend prediction for 2019? It’s all about poured, swirled, and stirred accessories. Think watercolor trays, clocks, and trivets with a marbled effect. We’re already sold.
