5 interior design trends for summer

4th May 2018

It’s nearly summer – so what better time than now to spring clean and freshen up ready for the warmer months? In today’s blog we share five key interior design trends to try for summer 2018 so you can refresh and revive your home ready for the sunshine season.

Ice cream pastel shades

‘Tissue pink’ was the hue du jour last year – dubbed ‘millennial pink’ thanks to its popularity amongst younger generations. In 2018 the palette expands to include a beautiful range of equally soft shades including pistachio green, pale violet, creamy yellow and peach.

Pretty plants

It’s foliage, foliage and more foliage this year as plants become popular once again. Lush greenery can be placed in pots around the home, or in macramé hangers and wall baskets for a boho feel. Plants also have multiple health benefits to offer as they pump oxygen into the air around them – so the more the merrier.

Totally tropical accessories

Tropical screams summer – and it’s well and truly in for 2018. Think bright colours, bold prints and jungle-inspired wallpapers, upholstery and accessories. Playful, pretty – your interpretation of the tropical theme can be minimalistic or all-out.

Indigo blue

Indigo blue is named after the plant used as a dye resulting in deep, bewitching colour. Stunning Indigo is on trend for summer 2018 – offering a stark contrast to whimsical pastel tones. This inky blue is best incorporated in small doses via sparkling glassware and vases, cushions and throws.

Ombre style

Ombre means ‘to shade’ – often featuring soft tones blending seamlessly into one another. This gentle watercolour style lends itself perfectly to co-ordinates such as soft furnishings, bedding and more. Choose complementary colours and neutrals like rust, violet, beige and teal.

You did everything that we asked. We have used Johnsons 3 times in the past 2 years and have always found them professional and the removal guys really friendly and courteous.

Mr & Mrs Green, Cheshire

An excellent service carried out by people who cared. Right through from quotation to move into storage and back out again.

Mr Wyatt, Coventry

Very impressed with the service offered from beginning to end. Overall, very good value for money.

Mr & Mrs Langman, Wilmslow

Everything was done very well and to our satisfaction.

Dr & Mrs Cowell, Northwich

I send my deepest appreciation for the hard work and polite good spirits not to mention speed with which the men did their job. Many thanks to them and your firm for another successful and minimal street move. I wouldn’t hesitate to use you again.

Mrs Haselhurst, Warrington

Everything went very well, the move was brilliant. Any comment would be I lost my snake and the guys wouldn’t help look for him as they were scared (he has been found now).

Mr & Mrs Obbard, Llanerchymedd

Very helpful with what turned out to be a very difficult move. The movers were great, helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.

Dr Millard, Buxton

Thank you for packing us up and moving us into our new home.
Everyone was brilliant, friendly, professional and funny. Most stress free move I’ve ever had and I’ve done quite a few house moves.

Mrs Kirlew

With all best wishes and again my appreciation for your most courteous and helpful attention throughout my association with Johnsons.

A pleasurable experience from start to finish.
