Top 5 Interior Design Ideas For The Summer

Top 5 Interior Design Ideas For The Summer


Now that spring has sprung and summer is officially on the horizon, it’s time to embrace the season’s design trends and freshen up your home.

Here at Maltby’s, we want to ensure that your home is always looking chic and ready for a gathering, a summer party or any occasion for that matter. We guarantee that we’ll have something to suit your taste. From blinds, carpets to flooring, we’ve got it covered.

Here’s our list of the top five interior trends:


Nothing screams summer more than a floral print. It’s a great way to add a pop of colour to a room and works particularly well against neutral tones. From curtains to bedding, a floral print can lift any room.

Earthy Tones

Earthy tones are becoming increasingly popular, especially since Pantone’s Colour of the Year is Greenery. We’re talking terracotta, cinnamon, and olive green, colours that are synonymous with Scandi chic. These subtle hints of colour are calming and add warmth to the home.

Neutral Tones

A classic for a reason – this one never goes out of style. Wild colours and patterns aren’t for everybody. If you’re keeping existing furniture, they can clash, whilst neutrals offer you versatility. Softer tones of cream, beige, pink and khaki guarantee a laid back and contemporary vibe. Paired with organic/natural style flooring or even mixed with some bold accent tones for a more modern look.

Cool Blue

Cool blue is being labelled as one of the hottest trends for 2017 particularly in spaces that are flooded with light. The colour works particularly well in bedrooms as it’s synonymous with serenity. Also on hot days, cool colours help to reduce the heat in the room and provide you with the perfect relaxing environment.


The epitome of elegance and sophistication, white is a timeless colour. Bedding, walls or even furniture in white, just feels fresh, welcoming and modern. Similar to neutral tones, white can stand-alone or be worked alongside an accent colour. A classic and a favourite of ours!

Do any of these summer trends catch your eye? It may be time to consider a new carpet or jazz up your blinds.
