You’ve done all the spring cleaning, and you’re looking around your home thinking, “Now that everything’s in tip-top shape, I would really like to refresh my décor, too.” As spring moves into summer, it’s the perfect time to give your home a midyear makeover. Here are three up-and-coming interior design trends to consider:
Interior color this year is focused on blue, from cool aqua to deep indigo. Blue is trending worldwide and was named the world’s favorite color in 2015 and has been on trend since. Use dark shades of blue as a neutral and light shades as accents. You can pair the aqua color theme with sea image accents, another new trend this year.
2. Metallic Accents
Metallic accents are everywhere this year. They’re popular because they bring life to a room, and they come in so many colors that it’s easy to incorporate them into your design. Choose warm, burnished metals or bright, iridescent finishes; both are popular right now.
We’ve been seeing pattern creeping back slowly after years of solid-color finishes on everything. Designers are using pattern to add visual interest while keeping the look completely modern. One particularly hot trend is wallpaper. Mix and match it with patterned rugs, pillows, and throws. Some designers like to pair graphic patterns in contrasting colors, while others like the softer look of multiple big floral prints.
