Biophilic Designs Biophilic design principles fall in line with the modern commitment to more sustainable living, by considering ways to make the most of natural light in your home, introducing greenery and plants into the property, as well as embracing natural materials and using colours, from light green shades and deep browns. Organic, sustainable or recycled materials can be used for furnishings, while merging interior and outdoor spaces can maximise room and make your home feel larger. Dark Academia Though the dark academia design theme may have come to the forefront years ago as a principal idea for country homes, recent months have seen the trend become more popular online (particularly on social media), leading to a revival in popularity this Summer. This traditional concept can be given a subtle contemporary twist and involves the aesthetic inspiration from old English academic institutions, with bookshelves, nature-inspired colours and vintage furniture. Dark patterned wallpaper and wooden vanity desks may also make an appearance. Pastel Tones Associated with calmness, neutrality and inner-peace, it is easy to see why pastel tones are popular within the interior design community, particularly for Summer – these tones are generally conducive for creating light and airy spaces. Used either as the base for the design concept or accessories to accent, these subtle tones aren’t overpowering to visitors and are perfect for bedrooms, bathrooms or living rooms when paired with appropriate furniture. Delicate shades are also ideal for young children or babies, making this a suitable theme for a growing family. Being matched with your ideal interior designer or home design company has never been easier, with the regularly updated Designer Directory from the Society of British & International Interior Design. Take some inspiration from these Summer-ready design trends, or consult with a professional interior design practice and let your imagination run wild.
