Summer Design Trends
When it comes to the interior design of your home this summer, take direction from the freedom of the season and go against the status quo for fresh summer decor. Often more free-spirited, a fresh approach to interior design this season calls for the unexpected. From playful interiors to outdoor spaces that make you crave those warm summer nights, here are this season’s design trends.
Prints and Patterns. Floral and botanical prints are often considered the epitome of summer interior design. Implementing floral or botanical prints adds an exuberant energy to any space and creates immediate interest. At Alder & Tweed, we love to modernize floral prints by pairing them with sophisticated furniture and choosing a fresh color palette, like this blush bedroom from a recent project we did in Newport Beach, California. Playful, floral prints look stunning when used as a wall covering in a powder bathroom or as bold window coverings. Implementing floral prints into your home truly embraces the summer season and adds an element of sophisticated yet youthful design.
Bringing the outdoors in. One of the easiest and most trending ways to embrace the summer season is to bring the outdoors in by infusing natural elements into the interiors of your home. Adding foliage instantly energizes a space and adds a coastal feeling. A beautiful vase of flowers or a potted plant that brings nature in can really liven up a room.
Natural Texture. This summer’s trends are toning down color and amplifying texture. Natural woods, stone, grasscloth wallcoverings, and linens are trending materials that can turn your home into a summer haven. The use of any that looks raw and unfinished can add a subtle beachy feeling to any space. Texture adds a much needed element of interest to interior decorating and elevates the overall design of a home. For more photos and inspiration, check out our Red Ledges Project.
Luxury outdoor spaces. What is summer without a space to enjoy the warm weather? At Alder and Tweed, we believe that outdoor spaces should be just as beautifully designed as the interior of a home. High-end outdoor furniture, beautiful fire pits, and lots of seating are essential for creating an outdoor space that is enjoyable to use. Outdoor spaces are great for hosting summer events and entertaining guests.
