Top Interior Trends For Your Home This Summer

Here at McCarthy Stone, a lot of thought goes into the design of our developments, to ensure that they offer everything you need for comfortable retirement living. This includes all aspects of the interior design. We like to keep an eye on current interior trends, so that our developments are of a high standard and provide a welcoming and contemporary home for you to enjoy later life.

Here are a few of the interior design trends that are inspiring us this summer. 

Slow-living

A key trend that is increasing in popularity is slow living. This is about consciously reducing the pace of modern life and taking a mindful approach to improve wellbeing. Embrace this trend in your home by creating spaces where you can relax and enjoy living in the moment. Introduce neutral calming tones for a peaceful ambience within social spaces where you can enjoy the company of others.

Textures

To create a really cosy feel within your home, look to textures. A combination of different natural materials will add warmth to your home, creating a comfortable space that feels welcoming and lived in. 

Mix and Match Pattern

Against a blank canvas of plain furniture, mix and match patterns to keep things looking interesting. The key to this trend is to ensure that it is all within the same colour palette, so that it looks visually balanced and nothing stands out.

Botanical Greenery

Not only is the particular trend great for refreshing your home, filling your home with greenery also has some brilliant health benefits. From improving your mood and reducing stress levels to reduced breathing problems, this is one summer trend you should definitely embrace – from adding a few house plants to creating a small balcony garden. 

Sun Baked Colour Palette

Although there are no guarantees for warm weather, this trend will help to transport you to exotic lands and balmy destinations. Evoking memories of holidays in far-flung lands, the colour palette draws inspiration from the warmth of terracotta, sandy soil and sun-drenched scenes, for warming shades of pink, red and orange.
