We are officially in the spring season! The flowers are blooming, the birds are singing and the new interior design trends are upon us. If you are anything like us, you probably feel the urge with each change of season to shake it up a little bit, nothing too outrageous, just a new throw pillow here or a pop of color there. If you are considering an update and need some inspiration – we have you covered! Read on for the top interior design trends for this summer.
POSITIVE VIBES ONLY
The recent surge in wellness and positive mental attitude has seeped into the interior design world also, and we aren’t talking about the played out “Love, live, laugh” signs of the last few years. Interior designers are now employing a two prong approach to decorating our homes – psychology 101 style. Think about creating productive work spaces that inspire you, bedroom hideaways that relax you and kitchens that foster your creativity. From utilizing the psychology of colors to merely creating a space that you love – this season is all about your ‘happy place’.
Pinterest is reporting a 305% increase in ‘saves’ of terrazzo inspired decor. Think of a cleaner version of the 70’s trend as the focal point of your design. We adore this example from Angelique Mugnier’s blog, with dash of millenial pink creating an updated and chic version of this stylish classic.
ON THE FRINGE
It is not only everywhere in fashion at the moment, it is also coming to a cushion or lamp near you – We kid you not. The ethos this season is, “If in doubt, put a fringe on it.” We are obsessed with the above fringed light fitting from Anthropologie.
IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A SIGN
Neon signs are no longer only for the 24 hr diner or the dive bar. Making a big impact on the interior design scene, bright, bold and unashamedly loud, neon signs are the future. Use them to highlight a particular part of your house that you love, or to create a feature wall that looks awesome when you’re entertaining. The possibilities are endless – but stay eco-friendly, or your electric bill will be endless too!
