4 Summer Interior Design Trends to Add to Your Home.

May 30, 2018

Keeping up to date on trending home decor usually means one of three things. The first, you’re a fashionista hosting game night like a champ with furniture that’s on point.

Second, you’ve achieved your American dream, and are hastily pushing through a renovation to finally move into your newly built home.

Third, you and the hubby are an aspiring Chip and Joanna Gaines—flipping homes and staying on trend is necessary to get that new home family ready.

Regardless of your why, we want to help you get to where you want to be. Our team pulled together products that highly resonate with today’s trends. From color to geometrics, brush up on the four trends brewing up a storm this summer that you can add to your home today.

Shades of Blues

There’s something special about the color blue. Relax with a light earthy blue or bold with cyan. Regardless of the mood you’re trying to portray in your home, there’s always a blue to match.

We have three ways for you to accomplish blue in your living room by setting blue as a base or by accenting.

This living room showcases seated furniture in low mixtures of blues as a base. There’s dark blue and light blue partnered with very few patterns.

Paired with natural lighting, a touch of greenery, and other textured elements, this transitionally styled room will bring comfort to any family.

On the other hand, this living space uses blue as an accent color against a predominantly white room.

Embracing a modernism, this room provides a very casual yet sophisticated environment.

For this last set, we’re introducing a darker blue color palette, paired with several forms of embellishments. The tiny details in this room become great conversation pieces—from the nailhead studs to the metallic glass occasional tables.

We’re definitely inspired by these looks! If you’re anything like us, we know you’re just chomping at the bit for more. So, let’s continue. Maybe you’re not looking to redo an entire room. Here are delightful items that will help you add character, charm, and high fashion into your home.

Using Nature’s Raw Materials

Adding natural elements into a home has been on the trending climb for the past year or so. But, the difference in today’s trend is daring to get more creative. People are really embracing the idea of bringing the outside in. With these pieces, think mother earth-type conversation pieces.

Start subtly with a simple, open metal base on a modern white chair. It’ll be easy to add this accent chair into any farmhouse inspired home.

A unique industrial addition to a modern home, these contemporary side tables have an x-base block style trestle with metal ends. We can’t forget to mention the tiny details in the lining nailhead accents.

This twin metal-framed daybed will bring cottage charm to any space. The detail in the frame also makes this piece incredible to the eye. It comes in many other colors, but don’t forget, blue is in!

Don’t be afraid to stray from the norm and pick up one of these interesting, industrial-style pieces.

Embellished Show Stoppers

Embellishing has a broad meaning with furniture. It could translate to textures, fringes, glamour, or geometric patterns. Handmade quality in any space adds interest and sparks conversation.

This upholstered, white faux-sheepskin chair brings a contemporary chic flair. The metal frame also adds a sleek feel to the piece. It’s the glamorous chair you need when getting hair and makeup ready for a night out!

The details make this 63” TV stand a mind-blowing show stopper packed with LED fireplace. Add a glamorous flair to your bedroom or living space with a metallic silver finish, faux marble top, and tons of space for convenient storage.

It may not look too special, but this geometrically patterned ottoman can add a bang to your contemporary space. It will add dimension to any white or grey colored space.

With a Purpose

More and more people place a higher value on furniture that can serve multiple purposes. In this last section, we’re diving into items that are easily movable, double as storage, and have tech ports built in.

In a very sleek, contemporary design, this coffee table has a glossed white finish with brushed nickel legs. With two drawers on either end, perfectly hide away blankets, books, games, or anything you see fit. This one definitely earns a 10 out of 10 on style points from its clean look.

This fun little ottoman can keep storage, creates a tray when the top is flipped over and can be paired with a lovely accent chair. Coming in three stylish colors, this piece can add visual interest and functionality to any room. Plus, it’ll be a breeze to move if needed.

This last piece may have a traditional look, however, it comes equipped with modern lifestyle functions. Becoming the hub of any seating area, it features a flip-up top to reveal three power outlets and a USB charger, ample storage, magazine rack on the back, and a pull-out shelf with two cup holders and a remote cubby. In short, never lose your remote again!

 

Let’s Recap

  1. You can’t go wrong with any shade of blue.
  2. Nature provides us with beautiful elements, so don’t be afraid to take advantage.
  3. Show off a little with one or two pieces to make a statement.
  4. Regardless of the size of your space, furniture that can multitask is an all-around winner.

Whatever your goals are, let your home reflect your lifestyle!
