The arrival of summer brings the warmth, bright sunlight and a gentle refreshing breeze; and it also brings with it a selection of interior design trends that will make your home look perfect in the summer months. Summer interior design trends allow you to welcome in the warm weather with a dedicated summer decor change. So what can you do to make your home perfect to live in when the sun is shining?

Everyone is different, everyone’s home is different,
and everyone’s needs are different.

Bright Colours

In winter you’ll want to use muted earthy colours, and in spring you’ll want to make use of a pastel colour palette; summer is the season where you can really be bold with your colours to reflect the brightness you can see outside your window.

This can be through the use of warm yellows and oranges, or you can use bold blues to usher in a cooling effect to your home. Whilst this can be through something more permanent like painting your wall or kitchen cabinets, you can easily make the colour change through soft furnishings in your living room, bedroom or hallway such as cushions, bedding, towels and vases.

Plant Life

Summer is the season where you can really connect your indoor space to the outdoors, either through keeping the patio doors to the garden open, or allow your windows to let the breeze run through your house. One of the best ways to truly embrace bringing the outdoors inside is through the addition of plants to your living space.

Not only will houseplants elevate your room’s aesthetics, but there are a number of other benefits too. They can oxygenate your room, but they’re said to lower stress levels, increase your concentration and improve your productivity.

There are a range of houseplants you can choose from, including favourites such as spider plants, monstera, ivy, succulents and cacti. And if you don’t feel like you can take care of any plants but enjoy the aesthetic, then you can find a variety of artificial plants that look identical to the real thing.

Natural Materials

Following on from the theme of reconnecting with nature, you can also do this through the use of natural and sustainable materials throughout your home. So instead of using vinyl flooring and laminated furniture, you can return to nature with the use of sustainable hardwoods such as oak, ash or mahogany in your home. These woods can be used to make a TV stand, coffee table, shelving unit or a range of bespoke carpentry options.

Blackout Curtains

With the days getting longer and the sun not setting long after 9pm, it’s essential that you get a good night’s sleep, especially if you can only sleep in the dark. The best solution to that is a pair of blackout curtains for your bedroom, that will block the sunlight and won’t let anything through.

Blackout curtains come in a range of different sizes, colours and patterns, meaning you can select a pair to suit your current interior design aesthetics, without having to compromise on style to get the good night’s sleep you deserve.

Open Plan Living

With the warm weather comes the desire to entertain! In winter you’ll want to wrap up under a blanket, heating as little space as possible to keep you warm, but in the summer you’ll want to open your house out a bit and embrace open plan living.

Whilst you can make things permanently open plan by knocking down the wall between the kitchen and the living room, you can also make easier temporary changes such as rearranging your furniture to allow easy movement as well as airflow.
