Now that summer is well and truly in full swing, it seems a good idea to refresh some of the prints and patterns in your home. After a big spring clean there is nothing better than changing up some of the demure decor in your beautiful home. Your personal style seems to change constantly depending on the latest trends, your mood and even the season. Now would be the ideal time to change everything up a little bit and spruce up your styles for summer. From fabulous floral prints to marvellous metallic touches, make your home the glamorous pad it deserves to be with a handful of these innovative and inspirational ideas.
The truth is that floral patterns will never go out of style, homes that are bursting with floral delights are just so elegant and timeless. If you like making a bold statement with your styles then don’t shy away from floral patterns for big features in your home. A floral armchair would make a beautiful addition to your living room and roller blinds with floral pattern will act as a unique aspect of any room in your home. When it comes to florals the bolder and brighter the better, so choose your favourite accessory and make a statement.
Nautical themes and striking stripes are always an ageless design that will always be welcome in your home. From striped bed sheets to statement cushions, you could really go to town with this kind of pattern. Choose eye catching and complementary colours when choosing your striped accessories for example, blue and white are a perfect combination as well as pastels such as pink, green and blue. Make sure everything makes sense and ties in well with your overall home décor theme.
Mighty and Metallic
You might not have seen the huge rush for metallic designs at the moment, but they are certainly taking the catwalk by storm, as well as the interior design magazines. A metallic silver or gold accessory in your home will always make the perfect bold statement, whether it’s a striking vase or even a small side table. You can incorporate this new trend into your home using a number of clever and innovative techniques.
Normally you run by the notion of ‘bold is better,’ but you might want to rethink this idea over summer. Muted tones and neutral colours are making a huge comeback into the world of interior design, so it’s time to adopt the less is more attitude. By all means, you can use florals and stripes as statement features, but it is important to offset these with minimal designs and neutral colours such as greys, creams and beiges. Choose your striking element and partner it up with something a little plainer to make it stand out even more.
So spice up your patterns and prints this summer and make a bold statement with floral blinds or marvellous muted wallpaper; use your creativity to make a huge impact on your home for a fabulously spruced abode.
