It’s officially Summer! Which means its time to start thinking about brightening up your home ready for the season - from improving sustainability to preparing your home for the sun, BBQs and parties, we have collected our 5 of the hottest trends you can use to brighten up your home this Summer!
1. Environmentally Friendly Rooms
From Kitchens to Bedrooms, there are many ways you can maintain eco-friendly rooms. This year, sustainability is the key focus for interior design, and that can begin by using your redecorating to make an impact on the environment.
Therefore, by investing in some recycled furniture for your home you are creating an environmentally-friendly and sustainable room. It will definitely boost your mental health and in the majority of cases, can help you save money, too! Materials such as paper, fibre, foam and plastic are recyclable and can be used to create something stylish and warm for your home.
So, you’ve got the colour scheme, furniture and decorative items, but there’s one tiny gesture you’re missing that can make your home thrive in the Summer: Texture.
Materials like suede, leather, carpet, velvet and cloth are all examples of textures. For some reason, when these materials are adapted onto furniture, it improves the attraction of a room drastically, as well as a sensation received through the sense of touch.
Whether it’s a leather sofa or some velvet curtains, this Summer, improve the comfortability and tone of your home by implementing some appropriate textures.
3. Create Some Space
We aren’t saying dispose of your cupboard doors and keep your clothes out on show for everyone to see. But instead of hiding everything away, it’s come to our attention that more and more homes are beginning to have some more items on show. Whilst the last few years simplicity and clear sideboards have been a trend, we are definitely warming up to some more exposure.
By “exposing everything” we mean open shelving and clearing wall space, putting a few essentials on the side to show some sort of living and activity within the property. For example, getting rid of wall units so the walls remain open and bright or adding some open shelving as an alternative to cupboards.
4. Natural Colours
Colours are talked about a lot, we know. But colour schemes are easily one of the most important things to consider when redecorating - especially when the colour trends are constantly changing. In 2019, colour trends are taking an outdoor route this year as the popularity of tones rise. From ocean blues and coral pinks to neutral greens and browns, we are super obsessed with these new looks.
By combining point 4 and 1, you are essentially creating a natural and sustainable home for yourself!
Our final point of this blog is focusing on the final touches of your summer redecoration. As the sun begins to come out, so does the flowers, and your final touch to fully complete the look could be a nice vase of roses, lilies, tulips or daisies etc. perched in your room for everyone to see.
Plants in your home help improve air quality and genuinely brighten the room with smell and sight. Choose an assortment that will compliment your colour scheme, textures and furniture to really complete the perfect Summer look.
