Summer 2013 interior colours and trends

Posted by Things4MyHome.com on 6/21/2013 to Ideas & Inspiration
Today is officially the first day of Summer! Will it be the lovely warm summer that we all crave? Unfortunately, we can't offer you any insight into the likely weather trends for the next couple of months! But we can help you with some ideas to bring a splash of colour to your home and daily life based on interior trends for summer 2013.

We look at some of the key interior and colour trends highlighted by Elle, Kelly Hoppen, NCS and Global Colour Research and suggest a few of our favourite products.

Gorgeous Greens

Although Emerald Green is Pantone's Colour of 2013, all shades of green are a go this year! Particularly luscious lime green, which makes us feel all summery.

Beautiful Beiges, Natural Neutrals & Lace

Beige often gets a bad name as being boring, but it doesn't have to be. There are so many super neutral shades that will create both timeless and contemporary looks with the right injection of accent colour and warmth. Lace is also something to consider this year.

Black and charcoal make bold, contemporary statements and look great paired with white. Metal, plus smoked and clear cut glass are also on trend.
