With warmer weather approaching and the lighter months on their way, there has never been a better time to give your home a new lease of life and update your interior. You don’t need a big budget to refresh your space either. With just a few nifty tweaks you can create a home you love that looks fresh for the summer…
From decorative foliage to exciting pops of colour the summer is all about bringing the light back into your home. Here’s how you can refresh your space using the 4 hottest interiors trends of the summer, and fall back in love with your home…
One of the biggest trends this summer is greenery and botanical designs. This trends works with any existing interior style and leafy accessories can give your home a new lease of life for next to nothing. Add some hanging planters for a simple yet eclectic look or decorate your shelves with a few cacti for a tropical garden in your home.
Not only will bringing plants indoors improve the air quality of your home but it also gives your space trendy tropical vibe. If you don’t fancy having plants, simply add botanical prints to your home with upholstery (here’s how I DIYed this fabric to cover my old Lloyd Loom chair), accessories and artwork.
This summer is all about brighter shades, clashing patterns and flamboyant accents to bring your home to life. Morocco is famed for its burnt sunset shades and eclectic colour combinations so you can be as experimental as you like and liven up your living room with something as little as a new set of cushions or a vibrant lantern. Pair pinks with oranges and greens with blues to create a layered look that will instil this joyous north African look into your home whether you live in an apartment in East London or a farmhouse deep in the Suffolk countryside.
Summer isn’t all about changing up your colour scheme, you can also switch up texture to give your room an extra dimension. Velvet is making its way back as a part of an art deco aesthetic. This sultry and sophisticated look is making its way into the top trends for this year. Velvety decadence, whether its just a simple cushion or a whole new couch, can give your home character and an understated elegance, so get inspired and create your own classical glamour in your front room.
OUT OF THIS WORLD INTERIORS
Marking 50 years since the moon landing, this summer is all about bringing the stars a little closer to your living room and bringing the cosmos into home decor. From galaxy themed plates to twinkling star fairy lights, you can add a touch of outer space to your home. Zodiac garlands, moon phase clocks and constellation lamps are all easy ways to spice up your room with some inspiration from the skies. I personally love my vintage moon poster and I’m delighted that it’s back on trend!
So whether you’re planning on getting creative with some sparkly stars or you’re looking for a way to liven up your kitchen with a pop of Moroccan colour, get experimental with the trends this summer to update your home for very little outlay.
