Is your interior in need to a fresh lick of paint? Perhaps you just fancy giving your interior a summer makeover? Well, you’re in luck, because we’ve gathered together some of the best British design trend of summer 2015 for you to bear in mind when revamping your home.

Using a large amount of white always makes for a dramatic impact on an interior, but combining differing textures can improve the look tenfold. The image below exemplifies how white doesn’t have to be clinical. The use of soft furnishings and an array of textures, work to soften the overall effect.

Another key look that’s taking over British interiors this summer, is opulence – but in moderation. It may seem like a contradiction of terms, but making use of plain fabrics and neutral colours provides the perfect background on which to add a peppering of luxurious colours and fabrics. This example of gold detailing works to give the mirror that special added touch, transforming it for drab to fab.

Botanical themes are in this summer, whether in the form of plants, wildlife motifs or simply an injection of green into bedroom colour schemes. Take a look at this Betta Living bedroom for inspiration. It’s a great example of how to add a dose of green to the room, without it being too overwhelming. The white wardrobes and strategic use of plants make for a relaxing place to wind-down and get a good night’s sleep.

This interior trend has really taken off in British bars and restaurants, but it can be a great concept to bring into certain rooms of the house – bathrooms and kitchen in particular. It encompasses a combination of old a new style ideas, which works to great effect. This creates a modern living space with all the warmth of those much-needed vintage touches.


Blue is the HueBlue is the Hue

From aquamarine to navy, blue is taking off in a big way this year. Whether it’s in the form of nautical stripes, willow-pattered china or a splash of accenting, we’re seeing a huge rise in the use of blue form our favourite designers.

One of the best things about this year’s trends, is that you can incorporate every one of them into your home in either a large or small-scale way, meaning you can be on-trend without having to redecorate your entire interior to create the look!
