Deco Trends for Summer

Three summer styles for your home

Summer is finally here! Rich colours, warm sunshine and an airy breeze give us a feeling that is incomparable. Do you want to capture this feeling in your flat? No problem! With these tips you can bring that holiday feeling straight into your home and feel like you are in paradise!

Welcome to the jungle

One of the coolest and most beautiful trends this summer is decorating your flat like the jungle. You can let your imagination run wild and work with different colours, fabrics and other materials. A great idea is wallpaper with leaf prints which remind you of the jungle’s canopy. If that is too much for you, you could paint your wall a rich shade of green. Or maybe choose a bright turquoise or teal!

You can decorate the walls with cool jungle themes or your own photos from your last tropical vacation. You will find a selection of elegant frames in warm wood tones in our shop. Combine cushions, blankets and photo pillows in various shades of green with ethnic patterns, rattan, wood and bast fibres and feel like you are living in the middle of a tropical jungle.

Brass is also very trendy right now and can be integrated perfectly into your jungle interior design. You can choose between newspaper stands, decorative bowls, mirrors and other objects. Search out some pretty bast fibre baskets in various sizes. You’ll be killing two birds with one stone because the baskets not only will these baskets offer you storage space for all your odds and ends, but they will also make great decorations. A small statue of Buddha made of brass, stone or wood completes the look, as well as other great decorative elements. Birds, pineapples, leaves and other elements of the jungle have inspired designers to make wonderful prints and decorative elements which draw creativity from all areas.

Bring your garden into the flat

In summer you want to spend as much time outdoors as possible, and the garden is perfect for this. But those among us who do not have access to a garden should not have to sacrifice having that relaxed summer feeling in your own home. Why don’t you just make your living room and kitchen into a garden? It’s very easy to do and not hard on your finances. Put floral wallpaper on one of your walls, paint them rich shades of green or put up a flower wall tattoo.

Wooden furniture will add to that garden feel, as well as furnishings and decorations made of metal and earthenware. How about a counter made of mango wood, various vintage wine boxes for storage, a metal oil lamp and a great terracotta pot for decoration? And if you have a bigger budget, you can build some DIY furniture out of pallets. These are not only sustainable, but also fit perfectly into that garden look. Colourful paper lanterns in garlands, oil lamps and lanterns also provide pleasant lighting.

Also, something else you definitely shouldn’t forget: plants! Decorate with kitchen herbs, lavender and other beautiful potted plants. When choosing plants you will need to pay close attention to how much sun your new flatmate will need. If your rooms are relatively shady you should choose plants that don’t mind less sunshine. Use fresh flowers or fake ones as colourful accents and put your own spin on summer resorts.

Use yellow in all forms for more sunshine

Bring sunshine into your flat with the colour yellow! No other colour reminds us more strongly of the sun. Yellow elevates your mood and gives you a new energy boost - even when it’s raining outside! Yellow is one of the primary colours on the colour wheel and is across from green and yellow, which means it goes very well with these two colours.

If you want to create positive tension and create contrasts, then combine yellow with the colour opposite it on the colour wheel: purple. If you want to create a warm and friendly atmosphere you can complement pure yellow with warm tones such as mustard yellow, ochre, orange and maroon. With such a range of colours you can create an oriental style that looks authentic with brass, wood and soft fabrics. If you prefer things fresher and would rather follow the latest trend, complement yellow with black, white and grey and choose various decorative materials such as upholstery and carpets in fancy graphic prints, or design your own photo blanket

If you are very brave you can paint an entire wall yellow and arrange the furniture and accessories in other colours. Because yellow is so intense we recommend that you first try it out with removable cushion covers and blankets. If you feel comfortable with the colour you can then still choose to dip your wall in sunshine. By the way, you also have the option of giving pieces of furniture a new coat of paint. You will save money, add some value to old furniture and bring in yellow accents without the colour being too dominant.

Summer in the countryside

The classic among summer home trends is still country house style. Are you asking yourself why? Traditional country house style lives in soft colours, delicate floral prints and filagree patterns that give your flat a summery feel. In addition, this style can be redecorated easily thanks to its neutral base tone - white. You can quickly conjure up a cheerful and colourful summer home out of a cosy winter cave.

Start by switching out curtains, cushion covers and blankets. Where previously wool and fur created a cosy atmosphere, light and transparent materials are now put to use. Choose either neutral shades of white or pastels; lilac, lime green, rose and baby blue create interesting spots of colour without overwhelming the room. Combine cushion covers and quilts with various floral patterns to make the look come alive.

Wood is an essential part of a country house look in summer. The contrast between white and the warm wood tones creates cosiness and brings you back to nature. Pick out some pretty wooden boxes, fruit bowls and a small stool as decorations and arrange the objects as you please. Finally you can add some potted plants and flower arrangements. You can bring in herbs and forest and meadow bouquets here, just like for a garden look. Naturalness is key for a country house style, which means you can choose your flowers yourself and arrange them loosely in beautiful porcelain vases. You can feel like you are in a summer home in nature, far from the hustle and bustle of the city if you opt for a country house look!
