What’s Trendy This Season: 9 Interior Design S/S 2018 Trends

Three months of cold weather have passed by, and we are entering an exciting season of having the perfect excuse to surround ourselves with colours, bold floral patterns and sun-inspired tones. Let’s take a look at 9 interior trends that will infuse your dwelling with stylish spring looks.

Ice Cream Colours

Whoa, it sounds like summer is already here. Pastel colours or Ice Cream colours, as they’re called this season, are trendy this S/S. Not only will these tones make your home look gorgeous, but they also sound so delicious. So, if you’re looking to refresh your home accessories or furniture, why not choose sky blue, mint, lilacs or blush tones?
 

 

Yellow/Orange

We can all agree that yellow and orange colours are very appropriate when it comes to spring. The flowers are blooming, ladies start wearing floral dresses, and it seems like everything around is dying for more colour. Inspired-by-sun yellow and orange will give your living space a sunny ambience and warm feeling.
 

 

Gold

It’s time for copper to go and for gold to take up its place again. Gold has been a long-lasting trend, and it looks like it’s not going away anytime soon. Small gold elements or golden finishes including bowls, curtain poles or lamps will jazz up your interior and add the finishing touch.
 

 

Jewel Tones

You’ve probably already seen at least one stunning interior shot in deep turquoise, emerald green or true pink colours. If you’re bold enough, you might decide to cover your whole room in gem-inspired colours or as a less extreme solution just add a few elements to your interior. Jewel tones look stunning in bold and big interiors and are especially great for either window dressing or bedding layering.

Like the jewellery, jewel colours go great with metallic finishes. Mixing these two trends will make your home look like a million dollars and super trendy.
 

 

Floral Prints

Whether it be soft florals, 60s inspired florals or micro florals, you can have it all this S/S season. Yessss, can it get more exciting than this?! It’s a trend you can easily bring to your living space – simply buy some fresh flowers and place them in the most visible place in your home. If you want the romantic and airy print to last you longer, why not replicate motifs of spring blooms on your curtains, tablecloth or sofa throw?
 

 

Natural Accents

We’ve already mentioned nature inspired window dressing in our Winter Window Dressing blog post back in November. And it’s still on. The same as the fashion industry, interior designs draw closer to nature-inspired patterns, textures and colours. And spring is perfect timing to implement these to your interior because even in our British climate, flowers start to bloom, grass strikes its green colours, and everything around seems happier.
So, for your interior, things like wooden blinds, floors or oak tables will add not only a natural but also super trendy look.

Did you know that just recently we launched our Electric Wooden Blind range? It’s not only eco but also a user-friendly solution for your home.  
 

 

Colour Splashes

If you don’t already have enough colour in your home, this season you have the perfect excuse to bring them in. Bright, random and irregular colour splashes will create an uplifting mood in your living space, so just go for it. This trend is fantastic for expressing your personality; just mix in your favourite colours and patterns.

Our new blinds and curtains are blooming with floral patterns and bold, bright colours, so if you feel like jazzing up your interior, feel free to browse our blind and curtain range today.
 

 

Tropical Prints

You might think the longer, the more predictable this list gets. It’s probably because trendsetters and the leading designers now use the opportunity to revive all things spring and summer that didn’t fit during cold and wet autumn and winter months. Tropical is another kind-of obvious trend for S/S season, and it’s so exciting to have it back, isn’t it? If like many of us you’re longing for a holiday, but have a long way to go, why not bring the holiday mood to your home with tropical-inspired patterns and colours? Fresh greenery combined with bright colours and gold elements will upscale even the simplest interior.
 

 

Terrazzo

Make some noise for Terrazzo! Originating from Italian “terrace”, terrazzo is chips of marble or granite set in concrete and polished to give a smooth surface.

Back in the day, it was used as a cheaper alternative to marble finish, nowadays it’s versatile and modern replacement for marble trend.

You can get plenty of stunning home accessories, furniture and home appliances with faux or real terrazzo finish. What’s more, Terrazzo will go great with any trend mentioned above, whether it’s ice cream colours, floral or tropical patterns or bold colours, you choose!
 

 

Feel Inspired?

So here it is, 9 spring/ summer trends you can use to upscale and revive your dwelling. If you’re in the middle of buying new furniture or home accessories, hopefully, these hot trends will give you some ideas of what colours and patterns to choose.
