We believe that decorating your home is one of the most fun parts of owning it. Interior design allows you to explore your style and experiment with the space, which allows you to truly show off your personal style. Happiness expands when you live in a space that is unique and reflects who you are. In fact, studies show that the most popular definitions of a happy home are a space where you feel secure (69%), a place for relaxation (64%), and a space where you are free to be yourself (57%).

Even though you might have an idea of what you would like to do to your living space, it’s always good to have some other options. Every year new design trends emerge, giving people great ideas to decorate their homes. Here are a few spring and summer design trends for 2018.

Pastels/Ice Cream Colors

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream…paint? Ice cream and pastel paint colors are all the rage right now. They are currently a huge trend in both the interior design world as well as the fashion world. People are painting their walls with pastel blues, purples, and even oranges. Some people are brave and paint an entire room with one of the ice cream colors, while other people stick to just painting one of the walls. Either way, it’s a great tip for bringing some light, fun, and character into one of your home’s rooms.


If you’ve logged on to Instagram in the past three months or so, you’re probably familiar with minimalistic interior looks featuring a lot of greenery. People love incorporating plants in their home decor because it adds a feeling of life and light to a potentially boring room. Plants don’t have to cost a lot of money, so you can easily have a bunch in your house for a very reasonable price. You can easily pair the plants with a textured rug, a fun colored couch, or a minimalistic side table.


A trend that has made its way over from 2017 but is still going strong is incorporating the use of gold. Gold is the perfect metal if you want something soft and elegant, unlike the harshness of silver. You don’t have to overdo it on the gold, as you can use it as an accent color throughout your home. For example, you can change your drawer pulls to gold knobs, bring some gold picture frames into your living room, or pick out a gold floor lamp for your bedroom. It’s definitely a color that won’t go out of style.

New trends are constantly popping up, it just takes some experience and style to reflect your style and make it work in your space. Call us today for a consult.
