Looking to make some updates around the home this summer? If you’re wanting some fresh, bold and fun ways to make simple updates to your home interiors, you’ve come to the right place. Below we look at some of the core interior trends and the decorating, furnishings and fittings you can update to inject these into your home.
Nothing is more summer-like than stripes. It could be because stripes feature quite heavily in the nautical aesthetic reminiscent of beach holidays, a common pattern on beach towels, or maybe it’s the combination of bold colours that sit proudly next to each other that instantly transports us to some sunny and magical destinations. If you want to capture the spirit of summer in your home, adding in some of striped soft furnishings can help to lift the face of any space.
Sweetpea and Willow Oscar Cushion – this definitely captures the spirit of the Caribbean sea / Antipodream Majorca Stripe Linen Tablecloth / The Basket Room Pamoja Sisal Shopper – use to store your throws! / Cotterell and Co Humbug Ceramic Lamp / Lime Lace Mouassine Wallpaper- Mind The Gap; if you’re looking to revamp a room in its entirety, this wallpaper definitely has vacation vibes to it. Use in a bedroom or lounge area to create a tranquil space you’ll want to live in forever.
Continuing on the beach and holiday theme, interior designers are turning their attention to the waves. It’s a playful twist on traditional designs; it’s curvier, more abstract, but softer and more inviting, and definitely more eye catching. Here are just some of the pieces we love in this new wave.
If you’re wanting to take a bolder step with your theming, consider embracing the Pantone colour of the year, Viva Magenta with some of these ideas below. This pinkish-red colour is bold but vibrant and evocative and we can’t help but draw similarities to the Barbie colour; just as the movie is due to be released in cinemas in less than a months’ time. It’s no wonder this colour is top of the trends and very much of the time (read our guide to wearing the colour of the year and how the Pantone judges felt that this year was a fitting time for its debut).
