Read more to see some of the most used designs and styles of the season, and how to integrate them into your own home.
Colors & Patterns
Try to place bright colors associated with summer around your home, such as yellow, oranges, pinks, blues, and aquas. Keep in mind that these colors will pop out more when contrasted with deeper colors.
The color “Living Coral” was chosen to be Pantone’s Color of 2019. A bright shade of pink and orange, the color can add a sharp accent to the overall feel of a room while keeping on trend.
An array of patterns have made their way back into the present. Retro designs such as tie-dye, checkered, and polka dots can be a great choice of fabric for furniture. These are also paired with classics such as stripes or florals, and even more unique patterns such as animal prints or plaids.
Statement pieces can utilize both color and patterns, adding a rich diversity to the overall look of your home. The “Bohemian Look” implements vibrant colors, patterns, and flowers to create a cheerful and playful vibe. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different colors or patterns!
Bring the outside in, in the form of flowers. Seasonal flowers, such as poppies, peonies, and hydrangeas, can be a great way to add a touch of color. When displayed naturally, like the blooms just came from the garden, they can also give an aspect of freshness to your home. Succulents are also a low-maintenance way to bring greenery inside since they are able to retain water during long periods of drought.
Summer is the time of the year where you can fully enjoy the sun and weather. Freshen up your outdoor spaces, such as the lawn or patio. Weeding out your grass and mowing the lawn will make a large difference in your curb appeal. Clearing out seasonal furniture will make room for pieces that will utilize the space, and the weather, better than before.
Dual-purpose furniture will be a space saver, and brings aspects of sustainability and functionality. Use different colors and patterns in your outdoor spaces to tie all the distinct pieces together.
The Summer of 2019 draws elements from the current culture and implements them into modern designs, highlighting topics of sustainability and simplicity, along with more distinctive and bold accents. Paired together, they make a stunning design concept that anyone can incorporate in their home.
