1) Black, White & Green
Yes, you read it here first, this is predicted to be the hottest trends for summer 2015. It is all inspired by nature, with the look of layering botanical and tropical prints with real wood, it is aiming to bring the outside in this summer. Try introducing real plants as well as fake ones, it will add a new three dimensional feel to your space.
Stick to different shades of green to great a more layered look – it doesn’t have to match! Remember this look is all about wildlife prints, from palm trees to bluebell fields to floral motifs. Get as creative as you can – bring the feel of the forest inside.
2) Grey and a Bright Colour Pop
Without a doubt, one of the most popular colours of the year, is the classic grey; from dark charcoal to light grey skies, they are being used here, there and everywhere. They are appearing before our eyes everywhere. In fact I only redecorated my own room grey last month! With one slate grey feature wall and white bed linen and lots of colourful accessories.
Bring in as many greys as you can – the more the better, as grey can be a little one dimensions if you only use one colour. It is important to add a pop or two of bright colour, because grey than get a little boring if there is no other colour injected into the room. Why not add a funky art piece on a wall or some creative cushions to keep the design fresh and modern.
3) Candy Crush
No longer should the pastel colour be banned to the children’s room, bring them out into the house for an altogether stylish and sleek look.
Generally patterns should be kept to a minimum, especially when you are mixing different pastel colours, keep it simple – perhaps play around with different textures instead. Add accessories of white and copper to avoid this style from being too sickly sweet. Dusky shades of mint green, soft lilac and duck egg blue make this a very sophisticated colour palette. Stick to retro shapes, textures and colours to keep the design simple and modern looking.
3) Keep it Natural
Similarly to the black, white and green, but this trend is focusing more on the textures of the outside, like rough linen, knitted throw, fluffy rugs, natural wood and smooth marble. A sense sensation.
Stick to a neutral palette of creams and browns grounded by staple greys and blacks should be enough to keep this simple and understated, and most importantly enjoy searching for other textures to play around with. Try and work with your existing furniture before running down to the shops to buy more, if you have a solid oak dining room table, then why not try knitted place mats or unique a candelabra. Try and read plenty of magazines to get all different trends and ideas on how to incorporate the latest trends into your home.
