Spring/Summer Interior Design Trends

Last Updated on : 10th June 2016

Thinking about giving your home a spring makeover? Before you start looking at paints and prints, check out this year’s predicted Spring/Summer interior design trends, courtesy of Portico London Estate Agents

Pretty in pink
Pink is making a mighty comeback this spring, with dusty and rosy pinks tipped to become the new neutrals.

It’s an extremely versatile colour that suits nearly all styles of décor, and is fantastic for adding warmth to a room. Try adding a pale pink throw to a grey sofa, or statement, rosy metallic ornaments or light fixtures.

Granny florals
Florals have blossomed on the runways this season, and Elle are predicting that Granny Florals will dominate interiors this season too.

If you don’t feel bold enough to bring a floral statement sofa into your home, try using floral fabric to brighten up cushion covers, tablecloths, or curtains. Floral prints look great with vintage or antique furniture.

The new nautical
Nautical interior fashion is a feel-good summer trend, and a great way for adding a sense of space to your living space.

For a fresh take on the classic look, try injecting a bright pop of red or yellow into the mix, and swap bright blues for bold navy colours.

Back to nature
Natural materials such as straw and wood are going to be extremely popular this season. Add wooden or white and blue backdrop to enhance the nautical, coastal feel, or pair natural ornaments or furniture with floral wallpaper and plants for a bold ‘back to nature’ look.

Try using patterned tiles, woven accessories, Turkish rugs and Moroccan style light fittings to give your rooms a sense of rich history.
