The Best Interior Design Trends for Spring & Summer 2018

We are always seeing the trends change in the design world, but for this season, we are definitely seeing some timeless, fun, elegant designs worth considering:

Pastels! It seems ironic, but we are seeing bold, saturated pastels make their debut all over the map in both the design and fashion worlds. Bright pops of pastel pinks and blues truly make a statement in your interior- bringing fun and lightness to the space.

Turquoise! Turquoise is one of those colors that ebbs and flows- one day it's all the rage; the next, it's seen as antiquated. But, there are ways in which you can implement this beautiful hue into your space that are both timeless and classic.

Gold! Remember in the early 2000's when we were all trying to replace our brass knobs and hardware with brushed nickel? Well, gold is back in at full speed. But not the shiny brass we saw everywhere in the 90s- a more rustic look is what is trending.

Set Up Your Outdoor Space. Now that you can enjoy the outdoors and take in the sunshine and fresh air, make your outdoor seating area the best it can be. We love to update old upholstery on outdoor furniture, implement bright colorful pillows, and add fresh potted plants. Viola- an outdoor oasis worthy of your favorite book.

Clean those Closets! It is so easy to acquire extra clutter and unneeded items over the winter months as we are burrowed away from the harsh elements. Put those unused sweaters neatly away and get organized and ready to flaunt your bright, light, clean clothes.

Brass is Back! Where We're Seeing It in the Design World

Remember when brass was considered dated, old and 80's-90's? Well, this is no longer the case. We thought we would never see this shiny metallic make its comeback, we were wrong, and it's made its comeback stronger than ever! We're seeing it applied to all surfaces, large and small in some of the most elegant ways.

Accessorizing with brass and gold colors truly makes an elegant statement against the current color palettes that are trending. While we remember seeing brass hardware against forest green and burgundy backdrops in the 90's, we are now seeing it paired in conjunction with beautiful blues, grays, and even orange hues.

It's not just shiny, polished metallics we are seeing on the forefront. Rustic metals reminiscent of earlier years. Beautiful lighting fixtures, photo frames and accessories with aged finishes make for an elegant timeless look and will never date themselves as time progresses.

Plumbing and cabinet hardware are definitely leaning towards the warmer metallic tones and we can see why. This gorgeous bathroom fixture truly makes a statement that is classic, sophisticated, and elegant.

Beautiful Summer Decor

There are many ways in which you can bring the sunny brightness of summer into your interior. We are now seeing white as a common color theme in design, and the reason for this is because white is as clean a palette as it gets and it can make your space feel larger!

Here are Ways in Which You Can Bring Summer into Your Space

1. Color. One of the easiest ways in which to make your home feel light and airy is through the use of color. As mentioned, white has made a comeback in the Interior Design world, but punches of teal and burnt orange are a beautiful way to give off a summertime vibe within your space.

2. Natural Textures. Wicker and tweed are reminiscent of tropical places, so by implementing them into your interior, you are bringing an organic, fresh touch into your space, giving a beachy feel.

3. Artwork. Beautiful colorful artwork is a gorgeous way in which to make your interior pop with a summertime feel. Gorgeous organic prints and patterns will give your space that extra fresh look.

4. Foliage. It's the time of year when beautiful fresh flowers are plentiful right in our yards! Pull out those clippers and bring a little bit of that freshness in! The brighter the color, the more summery your space will feel!
