Blinding Inspiration: This Season’s Trends

This summer sees the return of retro patterns into our homes and an updated take on pastel colours for our interiors. Yellows, pinks and blues are given a more vibrant hue and when teamed with retro patterns for feature pieces such as pillows, throws and art work, this summer looks set to revive the ‘80’s.

Introducing pastels

Pastel colours are completely reinvigorated this summer and are used in many different interior design trends.


the idea behind this trend is to combine the soft natural palette with the idea of space exploration to give a futuristic feel. Watercolours infused with metallics are a great way to incorporate the colour scheme into your home, and are supposed to be representative of the beautiful and natural Aurora Borealis.


an impressionistic trend that focuses on textures. Pastel colours are painted in watercolour floral designs using big brush strokes and allowing colours to bleed into one another.

Using different shades of pastels in large proportions creates a striking and modern look. The key to this look is to keep all the tones muted so that the colors don’t become too sickly. This is a great way to make pastels more grown up and introduce colour to more spaces in your home.

Retro patterns

Large repeated block prints and geometric shapes are a great way to play with textures and colours. Choosing brighter, bolder colours is a great way to break up soft pastel colours and really bring your room to life.
