Interior Trends to Look Out for This Summer
Summer is a great time to give our homes and gardens a refresh. The days are longer and warmer and with the full force of the sun shining on our homes it’s often a time to re-evaluate our surroundings. Here are some trends to look out for:
The key is to combine rattan textures with clean bright yellows and turquoise or dark blues combined with lush green plants, indoor foliage and leaf print cushions or rugs. Add in some mirrors and metallics and you’ve nailed this trend! Think of it as a modern take on boho. This trend is a modern take on boho and should make your home feel clean, light and spacious.
The trend for glossy, stark white and wood effect kitchens have been replaced with dark cabinets in deep shades of navy, forest green and charcoal to give your kitchen a contemporary and on-trend feel. Pair dark cupboards with marble worktops and brass accessories.
Whether it’s the small touches such as bed spreads or cushions or larger items like sofas and armchairs, velvet is a popular trend especially in rose grey, dark teal, bright yellow or vivid cerise pink. It also works really well with the next big trend…
Mixed metallics is a big trend this year – instead of rose gold, think different metals throughout your home to give it a mismatched eclectic feel. Combine gold and brass with black or grey metal, or even silver and don’t be afraid to shy away from everything matching.
If you love cocktails, you’ll love this trend! Home bars are a big trend and something that declined in popularity in the 90s. Take inspiration from the Mid Century styles with clean lines and if you don’t have space for a bar, there are plenty of stylish drinks trolleys to choose from.
Nothing says summer like bright yellow! Rather than painting your room yellow, choose a variety of furnishings and large items to make a statement. From your sofa to accent chairs and bed frames to kitchen tiles, it’s a colour that will fill your home with happiness and give your home a maximalist look.
