It is time to drag out your shorts and T-shirts. The official start of summer is just around the corner, and your home is still looking dark and drab. That is not going to work! Try updating your home with these furniture and accent trends for the summer.
Add a Splash of Color
Hot weather and bright, vivid colors go hand-in-hand — all you need to do is to look at the tropics. One of the most popular trends this summer revolves around adding as much color as possible to your home’s palette using accents. Designers are going wild over throw pillows and drapes in soft pastels and oversaturated primaries. However, as much as we love the excitement of these over-the-top hues, we need to remember to strike a balance. Darker shades of blues like cobalt and indigo are excellent choices for sofas or armchairs in a bedroom and other areas of your home which need more of a subtle ambiance.
Patterns and Prints
A variety of patterns are showing up on everything from couch upholstery to throw rugs this season. No matter if you prefer a strong, geometric pattern or a more relaxed, organic pattern, there is something for you. Trendy homeowners are scooping up shimmering wallpaper with complex, metallic designs as well as accent pieces with more natural and softer batik prints. You can introduce patterns and prints into your home without spending a ton of money. Why not buy a table runner with a bold pattern for your dining room or consider replacing one of your old boring lampshades with a new one with a vivid print?
Bring the Natural World Inside
Summer is all about spending more time outdoors with your friends and family, but unfortunately, we all have to return home some time. The good news is that you can easily incorporate many different natural elements into your home’s décor. Top trends this summer include adding lots of living plants into the house. Homeowners love the look of cascading plants from bookcases as well as any other types potted plants scattered around the room. But what about those homeowners who do not have a green thumb or don’t want to take care of plants? It is not a problem. They can add elements of the great outdoors through nature-inspired prints and accents.
