Summer interior design ideas

After the spring clean comes the summer spruce-up.

No. 1379 from our magazine|2 min read| Published in Lifestyle on 5 June 2022 by our Marketing Team

Longer days and warmer evenings offer the perfect opportunity to tackle those home décor projects – especially if you have some time off work. Read on to be inspired by this year’s interior design trends.
 
Go green
 
Summer is the outdoor season, so why not celebrate nature inside? House plants clean the air and have a positive effect on our mental and physical health – and even the fake ones look attractive.
 
While a statement plant like tropical monstera stands out against a white wall and perfectly complements natural fibres, you can pick up stylish rope-tied hanging pots and tumbling plants – real or fake – to spruce-up areas where floor space is at a premium.
 
Be bold
 
For an instant transformation, infuse neutral rooms with a splash of colour – perhaps to an accent wall. Primary colours are in style right now, so think deep blues, yellow and red. Colourful artwork and photography can also add interest if you want to avoid painting.
 
Patterns are popular too. Keep an eye out for summery prints for your cushions, curtains, rugs and sheets. Just don’t overdo the kitsch – simple is often best.
 
Get glamorous
 
Rose gold, brass and copper tones can bring a little sunshine into your home. Offset your current décor by introducing metallic accents to light fittings and shades, kitchen accessories or candleholders.
 
Strapped for cash? Try upcycling shabby furniture with gold leaf, or spray your picture frames or coffee tables for some extra glitz.
 
Stay cool
 
Sometimes, we may need to retreat from the warmer weather. Blue hues can soothe the mind, while furniture and décor that nods to a chic, bohemian or vintage vibe can have the same effect. Equally, natural materials and throws, blankets, and hand-woven rugs can soften the impact of the bright light outside.
 
If you are looking to sell your home this summer, why not start by booking your free no-obligation valuation.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
