While personal taste is always going to have an impact on how you style your home, a lot of people hold an interest in the latest interior trends. If you are looking to be on point this spring and summer, there are a number of ways you can freshen up your home, giving it a look that is ideal for these seasons.
There is often a lot of bad terms and names made up to signify a trend and it has to be said that 2017 has one of the worst, “jungalow”. This is to signify the blend of the jungle and the bungalow. In reality, it just means that greenery, plants, flowers, tropical prints and anything which hints of exotic wildlife is on trend for this spring and summer.
A good thing about having such a wide term for a trend is that there is something that can fit every budget and every type of home. Even if you have a small balcony area, a potted plant with a tall and leafy plant in it is a fantastic way to add a touch of “jungalow” chic to your property. Also, depending on where you position it, you can give yourself some shade and privacy around the home, which is never a bad thing.
If you like the idea of the “jungalow” theme but don’t want to go that far, you’ll find that the big trend for colours in spring and summer of 2017 is natural colours. ‘Greenery’ is the Pantone colour of the year and this ties in superbly with the freshness and opportunities felt at this time of year. Blues and yellows are also very popular at this time of year and can be implemented across your home in a number of different ways.
Again, the basic nature of this trend means you don’t need to spend a lot of money implementing it across your home. Equally, while it is a big interior trend for this year, you’ll also find that these colours lend themselves to adding a touch of vibrancy and excitement to the garden. You don’t need to go overboard but even a garden table or chairs in a fresh green or blue will help to transform the look, style and mood of the garden area.
Lighting trends are going in two ways this year, which is another positive factor for people looking for something that suits their home or budget. It has to be said that chandeliers are back in fashion so if you are looking to make a big statement, you’ll find that this is an excellent way to do so. There are budget chandeliers available if you want the look and style but not the high cost of this look.
However, there is also a movement towards smaller and positioned lights around the home as opposed to just one big light in the middle of the room. Hopefully in spring and summer there will not be much call to use lighting inside the home but when you do, you can create a cooler atmosphere by only using lights in the area you need them as opposed to lighting up the entire room.
Other trends to consider for spring and summer 2017 include:
· Adding maps around the home
· Bringing the sense of outside inside
These trends are flexible enough to allow everyone to think of something that is right for their home, and it should create a sense of fresh style around a property. If you are keen to ensure your home is in great style this spring and summer, these interior design trends will ensure you get moving in the right direction.
