Summer is all about warm weather, spending time with family and friends, and fun! It is also the perfect time of year to brighten up and refresh your home. These new trends will be sure to liven up and add excitement to your home this summer.
A Pop of Color
Adding a little color is a simple and easy way to add excitement to any room in your house. You could add bright pillows to your couch, a colored lamp shade, or a colorful rug. If you don’t want vibrant colors but still want to brighten things up you can add lighter shades or pastels.
Sustainable and Natural Pieces
Woven, natural textures like straw baskets or wicker placemats are a great way to be eco-friendly and trendy at the same time. Plus these are elements that can be incorporated all year round.
Animal print is trending in clothing, shoes and accessories, so why not incorporate it into your home? Make sure you don’t go overboard with this, less is more with animal print. Add a subtle wall paper to a room, a throw pillow to a couch, or even a rug.
This classic trend is coming back in a new and modern way. Adding floral print wallpaper to your laundry room or bathroom is a great way to incorporate this trend. You can put a modern twist by getting a floral wallpaper that has a dark back color or an oversized print. You can also incorporate this trend by getting or making floral wall art or paintings.
