None-the-less, hope springs eternal in the human heart and the Larkfleet team is looking forward to enjoying some summer sun. Now that spring has finally arrived we have trawled the web for some of the hottest design trends to help your summer sizzle.
Go totally tropical
You may want to make the most of your outdoor space. Take linen table cloths of contrasting bright colours and layer them. Accessorize with bold tropical prints and tableware with darker shades. Make sure you add a splash of gold to the colour scheme.
Be bold with your interior colours. Use big, bold pop art primary colours in carpets, throws and cushions.
Bring a feeling of decadent sophistication to your décor. Use gold detailing on door furniture. Add some gold lamps and picture frames to really brighten things up – after all, gold is the colour of the sun.
The 1970s seem to be making a comeback – remember the heatwave of 1976? No, neither do we. But pastel colours, inky blues, muted earth colours and geometric shapes are all making a comeback.
And bring the outside indoors with plenty of leafy house plants.
Be bold with your textures. Look at naturally toned berber carpets and macramé cushions and throws. Make your living spaces light and airy.
There is plenty of food for thought on the Houzz website.
