This summer is very exciting and very eclectic in the interiors world. We already know that the big trends are going to be there, as in tropical always comes back (primarily palm motifs this summer), and bright, vibrant colours (earthy mustard yellows, rusty reds and terracotta oranges for 2019) are always in for the summer months and garden furniture designs are lovelier every year.
The one trend I am most excited about is what we call soft minimalism or relaxed Nordic. I believe a new serene Scandi style focused on rich colours, interesting shapes and sustainable materials will be dominating interiors for the rest summer and autumn.
This latest incarnation of Scandinavian sophistication will bring about vibrant patterns, colours and textures. Forest and coastal shades, layered up with different textures give the look depth while global-inspired patterns add personality. To add pops of colour and interesting texture, look for tribal patterned cushions and vibrant art work.

Spring and summer are a celebration of nature, so natural elements from foraged foliage to a bouquet of pampas grass or a single big sunflower are great ways to bring the outdoors in without spending much or anything at all.
Small Home Accessories
Small accessories such as a vintage coloured glass vase from the flea market or a colourful cushion in pastel colours are also nice and cheap ways to rejuvenate any space.
Cheerful Wall Decor
I am also very fond of changing up wall decor from season to season. If you have nothing else to work with, this is the easiest way to add something different to the atmospehre of your home. There are plenty of shops on and offline that do really cheerful and tasteful artprints that can help bring a little sunshine in. Or you could simply print something off from the internet and stick into an existing frame.
Slimline rattan and bamboo furniture are dominating interiors especially in the light season. Stylish and sustainable materials combined with botanical touches and dark accents are also a defining element of this look.
Like foliage and flowers, if you are close to the sea you only need to take a short walk to find some really pretty treasures. Use seashells and rocks in monochrome piles as adornments for your display surfaces. A large jar of sand makes a great display piece too.
