Feel like your home needs a bit of a spruce up for summer? But not sure what interior design trends to tap into?
Well worry not. We’ve pulled together some inspiration from some of the biggest trends right now to help you get your home ready for summer.
Play with colour
Pastels and ice cream colours are big for the season, bringing playfulness as a sense of calm. From pale powdery pinks, soft mint tones to duck egg blue, these shades are great if you are a bit hesitant to go bold.
Teamed with perennial favourite grey as well as natural colours and materials, this is a great way to bring the summer into your home.
Travel broadens more than the mind
Of course, travel has always made its mark on interior design trends, but this summer we will see even more worldly influences. Terracotta, ochre and earthy shades of clay feature in globally-inspired prints that combined with raw and natural textiles make for a tactile trip around the world.
Bring the outside in
The houseplant is now not only recognised for its health benefits but also its style. Using hanging plants for shelves or mantlepieces or event dress coffee and side tables with bold foliage can make for an interesting and healthy addition to your interiors. Leafy palms, fiddle-leaf figs, and hardy succulents are great low-maintenance options. Combined with lush green soft furnishings like cushions or rugs and you really will be going green.
A trend from last year that just keeps on giving, palm leaves and rainforest inspired décor from pineapples to pink flamingos and tropical birds seem here to stay. The style is less kitsch and more glamorous and ups the ante on bringing the outside in with the foliage trend.
All that glistens
The metallic trend certainly isn’t anything new, but this year it is less copper and rose gold and more about brass. Brass furniture, mirrors, and accessories add a luxurious touch that brings sophistication to any room. Another great combination is to bring brass into the room and team it with marble kitchens and bathrooms for an on-trend look.
Luxe for less
Demand for velvet upholstery skyrocketed in 2017, and it will continue to be the fabric of choice for soft furnishings in 2018. Velvet creates a luxurious feel with a lovely tactile element that definitely makes a statement. Velvets come in more colours than ever from dashes of pink to rich royal blues and can add drama instantly. A great way to inject this luxury feel is with a statement sofa, but if your home life doesn’t suit a velvet sofa, try a smaller velvet occasional chair or armchair to try the trend without making too big a commitment.
