Top Trends for Summer

A lot of the current interior trends for summer are about natural elements; the use of breezy fabrics, natural wood, and being minimal by keeping a space clean, yet functional.

We’ve rounded up the top must-have interior trends for summer so you’re always one step ahead. Discover which trend will work best for you and your personal style.


Keep it neutral

Neutral colour schemes offer great backdrops for any colour palette, so it’s easy to see why this trend is being used and loved in homes up and down the country. The complementary and versatile tones of taupe, shades of grey and beige work beautifully for furniture, such as bedroom headboards and bedsides. The beauty of opting for a neutral colour palette is that you can constantly switch it up as your style evolves or even as the seasons change. Perhaps you could add a pop of colour with your choice of bedding, a new rug or with some statement artwork, which will completely change the look and feel of a room.

If this sounds like it’s up your street, you’ll be pleased to know we offer a very wide selection of neutral coloured flooring. So if gorgeous greys are more your vibe, or warming honey tones have your heart, we’ve got a floor for everyone.

Get the natural look

Natural coloured floors are linked to an instant sense of calmness as soon as you step in. As when it comes to setting a relaxing mood, nothing quite hits the mark like natural flooring. With rich colours and tonal variation that together add a layer of warmth to any interior scheme, our natural tone floors capture the beauty and individuality of organic palettes. Bring balance into your home with the natural beauty of real wood, or if you’re looking for a more practical option then versatile laminate might be the one for you.

Our natural real wood, laminate and easy to fit vinyl floors are sure to give the look you want with the everyday performance you need. If you’re dreaming of creating a room that instantly soothes the soul, these gorgeous tones are for you.

Other ways you can incorporate this look into your home is with naturally sourced materials, such as rattan, cane, and wicker. Perhaps you could add a wicker basket into your living room and fill it with logs or blankets for a comfortable, cosy vibe or maybe you could choose a rattan bed frame that will transform your bedroom into an area of complete tranquillity.

Adding in these warming tones, simple fabrics and natural woods can bring with it a Scandi/Bohemian feel, which is another hot summer trend right now. Also affectionally known as ‘Scandi Boho’ this merging of two styles is incredibly popular. Think simplistic and clean, the key to this trend is earthy tones, such as muted pinks and taupes, as well as, complementing soft furnishings that add interest and depth into your home.

Let the sunshine in

Letting in the natural light will instantly open up a room and make it feel more spacious, perfect for enhancing smaller sized rooms and making the best use of the space. One way this can be done, if you own your home, is through framing large windows with sheer fabrics such as linen to let in as much light as possible, and if you’re renting you can opt for lighting that mimics natural light for the same effect.

Alternatively, you can utilise any amount of natural light you’re blessed with, with mirrors and reflective furniture. This way any light will instantly bounce around the room and maximise the brightness that you can enjoy.

Not only does more natural light create a wonderful warm feeling in your space, more light exposure has also been linked to increased mood and improvements to our wellbeing – winner.
