Interior design trends are a fantastic source of inspiration when redecorating or renovating your home. From colour schemes to fitted furniture, there are so many ways to make your room stand out – it can be difficult to know where to start. Whether you’re freshening up the lounge or transforming your bedroom, we’ve picked out some of the hottest home design trends in 2015 so far, to get your creative juices flowing.
1. Bringing the outdoors, indoors
Summer is the time to surround yourself with all things floral. But when you can’t be in the garden, brighten up your home with botanical prints, rustic décor and indoor plants. Houseplants don’t just look good; they are also renowned for boosting your wellbeing, making them perfect for your office or kitchen. Be inspired by the great outdoors when redecorating your room, for naturally beautiful results.
2. Flexible, multi-purpose rooms
Why restrict yourself by allocating a room for one purpose, when you could use clever design solutions to create flexible spaces for the whole family? Flexible rooms are right on trend for 2015, as homeowners latch on to the benefits of being able to utilise those spare rooms as a guest bedroom, office, play room or library depending on their needs. Bespoke fitted furniture can help you achieve a multi-purpose room that makes the most of the available space.
3. Let there be light
Head to any bar, café or restaurant this summer and you’ll notice that lighting is becoming a focal point of interior design. Statement lamps and hanging lights give your room ambience, while complementing your décor. For modern bedrooms and living rooms, why not opt for urban industrial lighting? Or, if you want to keep things more traditional, colourful pendant lamps are perfect.
4. Return of the wallpaper
It seems like only yesterday that we were stripping our houses clean of wallpaper, and painting the walls in safe magnolia. But wallpaper is back in vogue once more. From textured designs to bright, bold prints, indulge your creative side with eye-catching wallpaper if you’re decorating your home this summer.
5. Minimalistic interior design
But if you still can’t shake the thought of your grandparents’ gaudy wallpaper, don’t worry. On the other end of the scale, minimalism is making its mark on interior design. If you’re a believer that less is more, invest in storage solutions for your bedroom and living room that will reduce clutter. Opt for contemporary white furniture and keep the décor simple, to create a light and airy space.
