Want to give your home a summer makeover as the mercury rises? Read on to find out more about the new homes trends hitting the high street this summer.
Last year’s penchant for brass has shown no signs of diminishing in 2014. With copper fixtures, fittings and furnishings now available in an array of burnished antique shades there’s never been a better time to give your home a sense of grandeur. You can even introduce the shade through your bed frame or headboard for a unique take on the style.

Huge for 2014, the floral vibes of 2013 are still going strong. Choosing a few key upholstery choices in brave bold prints and patterns can look particularly powerful against more muted schemes so consider selecting an investment piece such as a rug to reflect this look.

This season, home interiors are using less stark blonde woods in favour of oak, cherry and walnut pieces. Choose stylish dressing tables or wardrobes as a subtle nod to this trend or update your flooring with laminate or vinyl in warm wood-effect designs.
Instead of vibrant neon’s or saccharine sweet pastels, think natural dyes for this summer’s colour scheme. Cool muted indigo shades are set to be big this year alongside other earthier hues.

Including everything from triangles, squares and hexagons, one of this year’s biggest trends is the use of innovative shapes and intricate patterns. Whether you fancy smart parquet flooring or simply a geometric rug, this is just the theme to bring excitement to the space.
