Published: 31/05/2019As we gradually move through the summer months, the days last longer, the sun casts a warm glow and the outdoors blossom with colourful flowers.
And, as the weather changes, it might be worth thinking about how you can change your home’s interior to reflect the warmer months – especially if you’re thinking of selling in the near future.
With this in mind, we take a closer look at five key interior design trends that homeowners should consider to refresh their home.
Often making accented appearances in the home, the homely nurturing coral shade is energising and brightening homes all over the capital this year.
Coral takes inspiration from earth minerals and shell clay, evoking warmth and reassurance to create a calming environment. Its soft pastel palette works well with other chalky hues, or bright oranges and reds if you’re going for a more dramatic pop of colour.
Consider adding raw organic textures in soft furnishings and lighting for a more earthy and muted colour scheme.
Mix and match patterns
This year, many trendy owners are counteracting the minimalist look with a combination of patterns mixed together. While this may sound like a risk, the key is to keep the colour palette the same tone. For example, using patterns that have the same level of softness to create a visual.
Better still, using plain furniture can act as a blank canvas for patterned cushions, while white floorboards and a coffee table can present a good backdrop for a terrazzo rug.
A statement print can also add colour and character to an airy room while still encapsulating a calming environment.
It seems that Scandi will not go out of fashion any time soon, making yet another appearance in the top interior design trends of 2019. Fresh, elegant and timeless, a touch of Scandi flair can really spruce up a room.
Filled with a neutral colour palette, natural materials and enticing textures, Scandi is the perfect trend to bring into your home. Consider small touches, such as Scandi candles, fringed cushions or sheep-skinned rugs, for more character.
During the warmer months, mustard hues are a go-to shade for homeowners. This year, many people are stepping away from smaller pops of mustard and onto larger investment pieces of furniture which add a bold, refreshing burst of colour in our living spaces.
One of the best qualities of this darker yellow shade is its versatility, which works with millennial pink, teal and indigo blue and crisp white if you want to create more of a fresh feel.
For a more subtle look, consider smaller colour pops with cushions, throws and other furniture pieces.
In recent years, we’ve seen more creativity with metallic finishes in the home. This year, people are ditching coppers and golds and adopting brass into our spaces instead.
Brass is more organic and sophisticated than others in the metallic palette, acting as a luxe feature for mirrors, furniture pieces and accessories. Lamps and smaller accessories can offer a subtler approach without having to invest in larger furniture pieces, while emerald green and soft pinks work well to accentuate brass and gold tones flawlessly.
Each year brings an exciting array of interior design trends to incorporate into the home. By following these trends and refreshing your décor when you prepare your home for sale, you can make your property more appealing, improve your chances of attracting more prospective buyers and achieve your asking price or above.
