With the weather constantly looking less and less grey than we were starting to get a bit too used to, it’s time to make those changes around our home to work alongside the better weather. Here are five of our favourite interior design trends that should be making appearances this summer in your home.
The main stylistic change we’ve seen in recent weeks has been less and less use of patterns around the home. The retro seventies overkill with the pattern work is losing its desirability and in its wake comes minimal variation with colours bouncing off of each other. We’ve seen this with less of the complex curtain designs and the overindulgent use of scatter cushions. Keep to one colour family to let the room feel a bit more unformed and calming rather than have heaps of colours battling each other for attention.
With the sun coming out it’s time to let the room reflect that. Put in the odd fun sculpture or painting to let the room glow with a carefree outlook that we should all be feeling this summer. A little bit of pop art goes very far and at the minute, prints are incredibly affordable, all you need is a frame for it and it’ll make the biggest of differences. Another option is to have the odd sculpture dotted around to really push home that carefree personality you want your home to show off this summer.
The weather being what it is, you’ll surely be spending more and more time outside rather than tucked up inside. So with that, why not bring the indoors outdoors. Sounds odd but it’s worth it. If you have seating outside then you’re far more likely to entertain in that space. Take out some cushions, throws or even the coffee table from your living room and set it up outside for the perfect space to relax on a summers day with your friends and family.
