The hottest home and interior design trends for Spring and Summer

One of the overriding themes for interiors in 2019 is sustainability. Of course, there is a gorgeous new colour palette to embrace as well, but when it comes to decorating your home, the emphasis is definitely on choosing classic and elegant designs that will stand the test of time.  Check out the hottest design trends for your home below.

70s SCANDI living room

This trend will help you create a classic, pared back look with a cheery colour palette and simple lines.  This year, 1970’s elements have taken a graphic turn and now incorporate geometric prints and an earthy colour palette.  The macramé plant hanger is here to stay and can be seen throughout this interiors trend.  If you’re looking to incorporate this style in your home, then the ‘less is more’ philosophy is worth remembering.  Don’t over clutter your living room.  Instead, pick out one accent colour and run with it.

Recycling is key in the kitchen

As we mentioned above, sustainability is key this year and this increasing awareness is particularly evident in the kitchen.  Brands like Ikea are now creating kitchen designs made from recycled wood.  You can go one step further and cover the recycled wood with a plastic foil, which is ideal if you’re looking for a darker kitchen.  You can easily team this with brass taps, chic wooden worktops and plenty of plants to create a warm and inviting space.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns

If you’re not a fan of the simple, minimalist look, then you definitely need to think about playing with pattern.  This season, it’s not about one pattern but a combination of styles.  The key to using multiple patterns effectively is to keep the colour palette the same.  Using one colour tone ensures that everything has the same level of softness.  This means your décor will balance visually.

If you’re a little unsure about how to incorporate this trend in your home, then we recommend using plain furniture as a blank canvas.  You will then be able to add pops of colour and mix patterns with cushions and a fun floor rug.


Mustard-hues are set to be the go-to shade for the upcoming warmer months.  There is a clear move towards larger investment pieces using mustard, which helps to add a refreshing and bold burst of colour to any living room.  This is a surprisingly versatile shade that works brilliantly with other on-trend colours such as indigo blue and millennial pink.

Open shelving

Instead of hiding everything away, the new trend is to have all of your kitchen items on show.  This is an easy trend to incorporate into your kitchen décor and we definitely recommend investing in some Kilner jars to store your favourite pasta in.

Add touches of mid-century modern

Get ready for tapered table legs and sleek lines with this trend.  Mid-century often appeals to minimalists as understated simplicity is one of the key ingredients to any mid-century design.  This trend is a great investment option as the designs provide a longevity that suits any minimalist.  You can easily layer pendant lights to add intrigue and limit your colour palette to let the dynamic shapes do all the talking.  Brands like Swoon and Habitat always offer a fantastic assortment of mid-century inspired designs if you’re on the hunt for further inspiration.
