Summer is here! Ice-cream pastels, glittery golds, indigo blues and super zingy color pops – these are all home decor summer trends for this year.
Below, we show you our favorites and how to put them together in your interior design.
Macrame, fringing, tufting, tassels and feathers – you name it, it’s here for this season and you’ll see it on cushions, wall hangings, throws, rugs and accessories. This summer trend will add a wonderful handmade quality to each room, beautiful tactile cushions on the sofa and a sumptuous throw with tassels on the bed, and a wall-hanging or two on plain walls to add interest.
2. Ice Cream Colors
Gelato colors are going to be a huge trend in both interiors and fashion this year, so you must start investing in key pieces now and get ahead of the crowd. ‘Choosing your favorite flavor of ice cream can be a bit like choosing your favorite paint color,’ explains Kasia Wiktorowicz, marketing communications manager, Valspar.

Although we did see geometrics in 2017, it was mainly on cushions and rugs. This year it’s all about tiles, wallpaper, and art.
4. Foliage and More Foliage
With increasing news of health benefits, the humble houseplant is fast becoming the must-have buy for our homes. And it seems the more the merrier, so pop down to your local garden center and invest in some stunning plants.
5. Indigo Blues
As an antidote to the pastel tones, another color trend is inky blues. If painting a whole room in one of these shades seems overwhelming then simply accessorize instead with vases and flowers.
Meaning ‘to shade’, this season you’re going to see ombre in many different ways, from fabrics to cushions, rugs to bedding, and in a painterly watercolor style on lampshades, artwork, and furniture.
7. Glittery Gold
Last year the metallic summer trend started to filter through into paints and metal finishes, this year gold is the key color. Softer than silver, it brings its own elegance together with a sense of decadence.
8. Color Pops
This trend is all about mixing bright colors together. It’s strong, but easily manageable if you have one or two main colors to start with that ‘ground’ the rest of the look.
Punchy brights teamed with gold are the key to this happy trend. It will work both inside and out. To recreate this look layer different colored linen tablecloths and use darker shades for the tableware.
10. Shimmery Floors
A new concept for carpets – shimmer! Perfect for spring and summer, this new range has an iridescent finish that catches the light and can be teamed with shimmery wallpapers and decorative paint effects.
