Design Trends for Summer 2019

This year we’re keeping summer bright. You can achieve this style by using vivid or neutral colors, utilizing a variety of different patterns or wall art, and you can choose a minimalist approach or go big with lots of fun accessories. The options are endless, and with such a wide range of them to choose from, you’re bound to find the perfect one for you. See for yourself!

Splashes of Color

If you prefer neutral colors and shades over vibrant all-over color, then use splashes of accent colors to liven up your space. Using colorful accents like a radiant rug or pillows can add some color to a room without being overwhelming. Or create an accent colored wall and keep your decor neutral. The image below uses PPG Paint colors to show the accented wall color with some neutral accents such as a rug and bedroom furniture.  reno interior design example 1 ppg1145-7 nightwatch ppg1090-1 magnolia blossom ppg16-20 bronze eucalyptus

Animal Prints

Animal prints are very popular this year. This is a good way for people to bring the elements of nature indoors. You can add as much or as little as you’d like and it may even be the change you need to go from subtle to wild.


The benefit of using patterns to decorate with is that there are so many to choose from. And you don’t have to stick to just one. Patterns are meant to be mixed whether they match or not. Whether you’re into geometric shapes or eclectic patterns, bring them together for a look you’ll love. Here is an example of how to incorporate patterns into a kitchen, while using some fun colors as well. reno interior design 2 ppg1150-4 kingston aqua ppg1021-2 synchronicity ppg1226-3 sprite twist

Plants and More Plants

Another fun way to bring the great outdoors inside is by adding plants. Plants have become a decorating staple this year. Not only are they are a unique way to add some life to your home, but they can also improve your air quality. You can hang plants, set them on the ground, or place them virtually anywhere you need to add some decoration. Pick plants that will sustain the area that you place them in, and be sure to give them the attention they need to maintain their healthy look.

Light Color Scheme

A light color scheme is perfect for the summer because it makes a room feel bright, which matches all the summer sun. Light colors are refreshing and soothing and they make it easy to incorporate other elements of design. Take this bathroom for example: reno interior design 3 ppg1043-2 moondance ppg1056-3 ashes of rose ppg1010-3 solstice

It’s calm, it’s relaxing, and it leaves you with the option to change up your decor whenever you want. These PPG Paint colors are light and neutral, allowing you to really be diverse with your style.

Wall Art

The use of wall art can elevate the design of a room. Wall art is a good way to incorporate more color into a room without having an over abundance of room accessories like pillow or insignificant nick-nacks. Wall art is also a great way to display your sense of style and can set the tone for the whole room. You can use wall art as a focal point for a room design and use it as inspiration for other elements of your room.

Lighter Window Treatments

Having light window treatments, such as white or cream colored curtains, will allow natural light into your home. With the summer days lasting longer and longer, the sun is a great source of light that is free and easy to use. Utilizing the sun as a resource for light in your home will not only save you money on your energy bill, but it’s an environmentally friendly alternative to using lamps and overhead lights.
