Interior Design Tips & Ideas For Spring And Summer 2019
With spring and summer fast approaching, it’s time to say goodbye to those warm shades of winter and hello to the light and bright as we move into the second half of the year. Of course, there are a few themes when it comes to home decorating, we can see carried through to the second half of 2019 and beyond. Sustainability, natural light and being bold are all still relevant. If you’re looking to make some changes to your interior design this summer, then you should consider some of these interior design tips and ideas.
Be bold and fearless with your colour selection
There’s nothing more satisfying than a room with a fresh coat of paint. As we move into the summer months, your original burnt orange, silver, navy or deep red statement wall can be upgraded to a mint green, flamingo pink, coral or even white, for a start. By incorporating a mixture these you can bring any room to life.
Pro tip: by selecting more neutral colours for common areas, you can move your bold statement from the colour of your walls to the furniture or finishes you select. For example, choosing a patterned wallpaper for the backdrop in your bedroom along with a patterned headboard and scatter cushions are great ways to incorporate bold colours.
Take the indoor look outdoors
Of course, it’s a lot easier and enjoyable to entertain outdoors in the summertime. With the warmer months fast approaching, this is the perfect opportunity for you to take your modern indoor look, outside. There’s no rule that says you can’t enjoy your modern finishes outside. By doing this, it allows you to carry your vision through naturally from your kitchen, into your entertainment area and finally onto your patio or veranda.
Pro tip: Incorporate the same colour furniture and finishes outdoors, for a continuity of your home décor. By keeping this the same you can transition between the two spaces in a natural flow. Alternatively, choose furniture in complementing colours. If your lounge furniture is cream, use white furniture outside with boldly coloured scatter cushions. You can also place an outdoor rug and coffee table outside to give your entertainment area a more well-rounded and inviting finish.
Keep things natural and environmentally friendly in your master bedroom
As your master bedroom is considered a place of sanctuary, this trend seems to carry over on an annual basis, there’s no need to go to great lengths to make it summer-ready. By creating a space which is calm and relaxing, as it should be throughout the year, but by adding a splash of colour using scatter cushions, throws and rugs, you’ll still be able to reset your batteries as you turn in for the night. This can be achieved by using soft colours in your bedroom as the background, keeping your room cool and comfortable on hot summer days.
Pro tip: When it comes to your furniture selection for your master bedroom, you can incorporate this cool trend with mixed colours such as bespoke wood and white bedside tables.
Let the natural light in
The more natural light you’ve got coming through, the better! If you’re planning a home makeover, be sure to include a few skylights, stacker doors and large windows. Let the natural light radiate through your home. Not only does this do wonders for your health but it also makes your home look a lot airier.
Pro tip: By incorporating more skylights, windows and stacker doors, it’ll help in creating few focal points in your home and create an ambience of space and tranquillity without the need to do much.
