With the summer season well and truly here, there comes a new set of interior design trends to go with it. So we, at Harmony Homes, thought we would look at the top interior design trends for Summer 2013. Here are a few of our favorites:
1) Striped Out: Add depth and space to a room using stripes. Using wide horizontal stripes on the wall will add width and space to a room, while skinny vertical stripes on the walls will add height to a room. If you’re not feeling brave enough to use stripes on the wall, add soft furnishings and rugs in your chosen color scheme with shades of whites and creams for the summer season.
2) Green with Envy: Emerald green is one of this season’s biggest trends. Statement walls of emerald green paired with tones of gold and black create a luxurious and dramatic effect. While white walls with pops of emerald green accessories, furniture and floor coverings create a funky and fresh look perfect for more contemporary homes.
3) Monochromatic Texture: In comparison to the emerald green trend, monochrome may seem dull, however the key to getting this trend right is texture. The dramatic duo of black and white works vivaciously to create an elegant decor. Using a variety of texture throughout your monochrome scheme will add warmth and character to this season’s hot trend. Pick out textured wallpaper and soft furnishings and pair with high-gloss surfaces to recreate this monochromatic trend with character in your home.
All of these trends have great elements that you can add to your existing interior decor, creating a more modern, on-trend feel to your home. Which trend will you be injecting into your home this season?
