Are you looking to renovate or restyle your home this summer? Lockdown has changed the way we use our homes and interior design trends have developed to reflect this...So if you are looking to refresh your home, read our latest article.
If you are missing sunny skies and beaches due to the travel lockdown, try adding some colour to your home with some beautiful blues. From pastel blue to navy, it’s a powerful colour that will make a stylish statement in your home!
Powder blue is a great colour to use in rooms where you would like to create a calming effect such as bathrooms and bedrooms. However, blue can also be used for a more luxurious feel, deep blues can transform a plain room into a rich and elegant home. Try pairing navy blue with soft furnishings, such as rugs and pillows that are deep greens or ochre as this will great a bold statement.
Minimalism has been at the forefront of design for the past few years but there has been a shift towards colour and vibrance this summer…
Cottagecore is all about embracing the simplicity of life and embracing the romanticism of nature. Over the past year, we have all craved the outdoors so why not introduce nature into your home? You can introduce cottagecore by filling your home with floral prints! Whether it be floral wallpaper, bed linen or rugs, bring romance into the home.
Another great and cost-effective way to introduce this trend into your home is to have fresh flowers. If you've had a tough day at work or running errands, coming home to fresh and charming flowers can help you to relax.
Rattan furniture is made from vines that are woven together. Traditionally used for garden furniture, we are increasingly seeing it inside homes and the trend continues to grow during 2021. Like Cottagecore, the rattan trend is about simplicity and embracing natural materials that add warmth to the home. Rattan is a great way of adding texture to an otherwise neutral room. White, cream and soft greys work great alongside rattan and will give you an effortless boohoo look to your home.
If you would like to introduce rattan to your home but unable to splash out on larger items, try using lampshades or baskets as these will create texture without having to spend money on new furniture.
Although covid restrictions are lifting, we are still spending a large amount of time in our homes, so the comfortable home trend is one that we can all embrace! After all, we spend most of our time relaxing with family or in front of the tv so why not make it a chilled paradise…
You can make your home more comfortable and relaxed by adding pictures and prints of things that you happy. We often forget the walls when we decorate our homes, but a photo wall can make all the difference!
Now that we’re spending an increasing amount of time at home, you might find that you’re in need of some extra space. A loft conversion with roof windows can cost four times less than an extension, starting at around £15,000. Homeowners are using the space in their loft for their home office. You can read our blog post on how to turn your loft into a home office for further advice.
