As spring ends and we go into summer, now is the perfect opportunity to refresh your home and embrace some of the new season’s trends. We’ve saved you the hard work and reviewed some of the best trends to help you spring into summer.

Fabulous foliage

We all know how unpredictable our summer weather can be and as much as we would like to spend the whole season al fresco, it’s not always possible. So, this summer, bring the outside in with an abundance of foliage.

You may have seen our recent blog on the benefits that plants can have on our health, which is why this trend tops our list. When it comes to flowers and plants, we think that more is definitely better. From lush and leafy to beautiful blooms, with such a variety on offer, you’ll be able to find something to complement your home.

Ravishing rich colours

Splashes of rich, sumptuous colour against a neutral backdrop, create an elegant and stylish home interior. This trend also means you can quickly and easily update your look, depending on the season.

We think the Andrew luxury silk cushion, handcrafted in royal blue, from our Emperor collection is perfect for this trend. The subtle design means that it is ideal for those with highly refined tastes.

Embellishments

This trend is all about introducing a handcrafted feel. As with the foliage trend, the focus here is on natural materials. Delicate silks, wood and woven textures all blend beautifully, to add interest to plain walls and floors. This one is all about celebrating the designer-maker, so carefully curate a collection that adds personality to your home.

Dream of distant shores

Summer is heavily associated with travel and far-flung destinations, so, this summer look further afield to inspire your home.

One way to achieve this trend is with our Sovereign collection cushions. Each unique cushion originates from the Dhaneti village, which is within the North Western region of India, known as Kutch. Their embroidery skills have been passed down through generations and each individual cushion features intricate patterns that are embellished with mirrors and beads.
