Now that June is finally here, summer is just around the corner. While your vacation might be weeks or months away, you can still get into the summer spirit in your own home. From a splash of navy blue to wood-look floors, the following home interior trends will help you turn your home into a true beach resort you yearn for so much.
Plants are a great way to turn your lifeless interior into a summer oasis. They have the power to instantly turn an empty corner into a bright and lively nook. If you are one of those people who think plants are too much work, worry not. There are some great low-maintenance plants for those of us without a green thumb.
Succulents, snake plants, bromeliads, and ZZ plants are all safe and easy options. Having a plant will not only make your home ready for summer, but it will also purify your air. That’s a yes from us!
If there’s a color that just screams “summer!”, it’s navy blue. The 2020 Pantone Color of the Year is Classic Blue (a shade of navy), which means that your home will be the trendiest one on the block.
If you are not sure how to incorporate this sophisticated shade into your own home, you can always start small and add a couple of pillows, a statement rug, or even an armchair. Or, you can think big and bold and paint one of your walls navy blue. This move will surely impress all of your house guests. Either way, navy blue will definitely bring a touch of summer into your home.
Rattan and Wicker Furniture
This summer, rattan/wicker furniture is making a big comeback. And no, these pieces are not just for your front patio or balcony — you can easily incorporate them into your home as well.
With rattan, it’s best to use one or two statement pieces, because it can easily take over your space. Make sure to take woven baskets, rattan light fixtures, mirrors, or even a statement chair into consideration when redecorating your home. You will not regret it!
This summer is all about wood-look flooring. If you are on a budget, there are some great rigid core vinyl flooring options. There is an array of products to choose from, so you are bound to find something that‘s to your taste. With this option, you can be trendy and save money at the same time.
What’s great about vinyl flooring is that it’s:
- Waterproof and low-maintenance (you can just wet mop it);
- Easy to install;
- Ultra-realistic (which means you’ll still get that natural wooden look at a fraction of a price);
- Safe for you and your loved ones.
It’s an affordable and stylish way to give your home a complete summer makeover.
Hygge is a Danish word that is used to describe the feeling of coziness and comfort. While this feeling might be associated with fall and winter, there is no reason why you shouldn’t make your home hygge for the summer. People still want to feel cozy in the summer, right?
You can add soft textures like cotton blankets or linen pillows, use more candlelight, and decorate your home with bowls of fresh seasonal fruit. These small but effective details will turn your home into a cozy den.
It’s summer, so make the most of your windows. Take advantage of the daylight you missed so much during the cold winter months. Rearrange your furniture to make your windows more prominent, which will, in turn, make your room appear brighter and bigger. You can also use drapes and curtains made from lighter materials to create an ethereal summer atmosphere.
Florals for Summer? Groundbreaking
“Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.” Despite the ironic words of wise Miranda Priestly, it’s safe to say that flowers bring all seasons to life, including summer. In fact, summer is the season that gives some of the most beautiful flowers. Just picture it: flower centerpieces in the form of crispy white peonies, cornflower blue hydrangeas and golden sunflowers. These refreshing pops of color will make your summer home more appealing than ever.
We hope that these trends will inspire you and help you turn your home into a summer house of your dreams. Remember, start small and then you can easily build your way up. Once you’re done, treat yourself to some homemade lemonade and enjoy the nice weather. You deserve it!
