Has the warmer, sunnier weather fuelled your desire to give your home a bit of a facelift?
Then you might want to try adopting one of these gorgeous new interior design trends which are taking our living rooms by storm this year. From styles that hark back to 70s Scandinavia to upping the textures in a space, there are so many cool trends to choose from.
Here’s our top pick:
Scandinavian designs are something that we’ve seen in our interiors for many years (thanks, in part, to that leading flat-pack furniture company!). However, this year, we’re witnessing a comeback of 70s Scandi.
This pared-down look boasts a cheerful style and simple, clean lines. Discover it in geometric prints teamed with earthy, natural palettes and gorgeous organic materials.
Less is most definitely more here.
Textures, Textures, Textures
This trend is incredibly tactile and is all about adding layers of textures to your interior design. Again, there’s a focus on natural ingredients with designs that use woven fabrics and organic materials.
Look for textures in your bedding, cushions, throws and other upholstery, building everything up to create a cosy, tranquil feel.
Mixing and Matching Patterns
To enhance the minimalism of the Scandi look, patterns are really going to add to these styles this summer. And we’re not just talking one pattern – we’re talking several.
This trend is all about mixing and matching complementing patterns while keeping your colour palette relatively similar. Everything needs to boast a softness so there isn’t one standout component – everything’s just working together and offers a harmonious balance.
For example, plain furniture is brought to life with patterned cushions while neutral carpets or floorboards are brought into the trend with geometric or shaggy rugs.
For a while now, Mustard has been a colour that many of us have been introducing into our homes. However, pops of mustard in your cushions and throws are no longer enough.
Now, we’re witnessing the introduction of mustard sofas, mustard paint and mustard rugs to really add a refreshing burst of colour to our homes.
The style of mid-century furniture is sleek and simplistic, so it’s not hard to see how these styles of furniture fit easily into minimalistic design trends.
Look for simple, tapered designs in all your furniture and then add layers of texture and colour through your accessories. For example, a sleek bookcase can be enhanced with books, ornaments, photo frames and other gorgeous design features.
As you can see, then, achieving the latest interior design trends this summer need not be difficult. Rather, it’s all about getting back to basics before adding layers of colour (not too much, though) and textures that bring the areas to life.
