Summer Interiors 2017: What’s trending?

With summer on the horizon, there are a whole host of new interiors design trends just waiting to be explored. From bathroom and kitchens, through to bedrooms and living rooms, there’s plenty of ways to update your favourite spaces, whether you’re looking for a total transformation or simply some fresh new touches.

But what’s trending for interiors right now?

Welcome to the Jungle

The tropical trend is everywhere right now!

Summer might not always be as warm and sunny as we’d like, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t inject a generous dose of tropical style indoors!

From exotic prints and whimsical wallpapers, through to intriguing accessories and bold printed tiles, there are plenty of exciting ways to introduce this red hot trend into your home this summer.

Bring the outside in

Continuing with the tropical theme, nature is trending big time this summer! And the good news is, this trend is incredibly easy to replicate in any room in your home – think an abundance of plants and floral prints as well as a colour palette of cool blues, greens, greys, and pearly whites.

We particularly love using this trend to create a contemporary design statement in the bathroom, where you can inject elements of the look with reflective surfaces, botanical motifs, and coastal colours.

Retro styling

Quirky coloured fabrics, oversized geometric patterns, leafy green old school plants, and bold 70’s and 80’s styled colour palates are trending right now!

This trending look will work in any space in your home. A simple way to get the look is to create a geometric wall using blocks of vivid retro colours!

Unpainted and untreated walls

In contrast to the tropical and natural themes that are trending at the moment, the industrial look of plastered walls and exposed brickwork are also incredibly popular right now. Whether you go for an all out, unpainted lounge or incorporate a single untreated, brick wall in your kitchen or bathroom, this look is cool, calm, and totally collected.


Maps are incredibly hot right now! And the good news is there are plenty of easy ways to incorporate them into your home. Whether you frame and hang an old vintage map onto your wall, or cover an entire feature wall with a detailed world map, this trend is not only super stylish, but it’s also educational and inspirational!


Designed to order pieces are definitely on the up this summer with customisation high on the agenda. From personalised walls and floors, through to bespoke furniture such as coffee tables, sideboards, and built in wardrobes, this is a great way to update your home with timeless and flawless pieces.
