Summer Design Trends

The sunny days of summer have finally sprung upon us, and you may find yourself thinking that your home isn’t quite capturing the essence and feel of summer. 

From introducing a pop of colour, different textures and patterns, to even bringing the outside in, there are various little tweaks that you can make to bring in the sunshine and warmth of summer. So, are you ready to welcome summer?

A Splash of Colour 

Interior fads and trends always come and go, but one thing that is for certain, is that our love for bright, powerful colours will always stay.  

Whilst we dearly love our classic, sleek white shutters here at Purely Shutters, we also appreciate our range of bright colours that make our homes look as stylish as possible. White’s appeal lies in its ability to seamlessly blend any interior colour or design scheme, whether it is contemporary minimalist, mid-century modern, or romantic and rustic.

In the summer, white spaces are ideal for evoking openness and allowing air to flow freely. They also reflect sunlight, helping you to keep your home slightly cooler during the hot months.

Warm-coloured shutters, like terracotta or sandy beige, bring comfort and warmth, embodying the essence of a Mediterranean summer.

We’re also seeing pastel colours gain popularity within homes and interiors this summer – with pastel eclectic décor seeing a 130% increase in searches according to Pinterest’s Summer Trends Report. Summer 2024 is all about vibrant and personalised home décor, with searches for ‘dopamine décor’ increasing 280%! Here at Purely Fabulous we provide a custom colour match service, allowing you to embrace colour this summer.

Summer Patterns and Textures 

Summer is all about simplicity, relaxation, and pure enjoyment. That basically means that summer is all about soaking up the sun and socialising, right? By incorporating pieces of furniture that are adaptable for both indoor and outdoor use, you can emulate true coastal living and poolside chilling all whilst at the comfort of your home.

For that extra touch of feeling like you’re away, the look of our shutters seamlessly blends in with this summer aesthetic.  

Bringing the Outside in This Summer

This is perhaps the easiest way in which to welcome in the summer and truly embrace the season. By adding lush greenery and blooming flowers into your home, you’ll fill your home with new life and energy, not only reinvigorating your space, but also yourself. Furthermore, adding plants will help to improve your mood and lower stress, due to their role in purifying the air. By placing them in front of windows, you can control the amount of light that is coming into your home thanks to our adjustable shutters. What more could you want?

Shutters For Summer 

As previously mentioned, our shutters have adjustable louvres allowing us to control the amount of sunlight entering your home. They also help to keep your home cool by blocking the sun’s rays, whilst allowing for a breeze.

Whether you want to cover the entirety of your windows with full-height shutters, or prefer the flexibility of tier-on-tier shutters or café style shutters, we have whatever you’re looking for this summer.
