Trends to Embrace This Summer
Updated: Jan 19, 2019
INTO THE JUNGLE
Jungle inspired interiors make their debut each summer, encouraging us to bring the outdoors in. This year, the jungle trend has been translated into psychedelic patterns and contrasting colours, making a bold statement in your home.
Bring elements of natural beauty into your home with marble, agate and metallic finishes. Although large mineral inspired pieces can be expensive, there are plenty of small scale decorative pieces available, such as vases, drinks coasters and tea light holders. The mineral trend is perfect for adding an air of sophistication and luxury to your home.
2016 has seen a move towards richer, darker shades. Inspiration taken from the past has seen the formation of contemporary paint colour palettes based on Victorian and Georgian shades. To achieve this look, team elegant prints with dramatic colours for a grand and opulent feel.
THE RETURN OF RATTAN
Rattan is making a comeback this summer, both indoors and out. Rattan is a versatile, eco-friendly material with strong associations to the Seventies. We’ve seen a lot of Seventies inspiration in 2016 from the fashion world and this has now made its way into interiors. Rattan is available in various shapes and forms, including furniture, lighting and accessories. Retro is in, which is great because it allows home owners to source vintage finds, as well as having a go at up-cycling.
Pastels emerge each Spring to welcome in the warmer weather. This summer, pastels are still going strong. Give your pastel scheme a bold twist, by layering pastel colours together with stronger, bolder tones such as navy or emerald green.
This season’s hottest shade is dusty pink. Pair this shade with neutral tones such as marble and light oak, alongside metallics such as copper.
