As you may have seen, natural fibers are crowned as an eternal trend in summer decoration, and that also affects blinds. By choosing them in jute you will instantly adapt your home to the summer season, although if you want to reinforce protection against the sun’s rays, you can always accompany them with blackout curtains.

The mesh or cannage furniture does not stop destroying. It is a trend that has a certain vintage spirit and that conceives very fresh environments. And it is that the matted wicker is already the protagonist of headboards, cabinet doors and even poufs like the one in this room. Doesn’t it give you a very casual air?

Sustainability and ecology have fully entered our lives, and that, of course, includes the decoration of houses. This summer we will bet on recycled materials such as plastic that already gives shape to spectacular rugs, and other 100% natural ones such as wood or fibers that are the protagonists of armchairs, puffs, baskets and lamps.

Natural materials in calm palettes are the perfect counterpoint to more colorful summer décor. We refer to the Japandi style, which is gaining ground among the most cutting-edge trends due to its freshness and simplicity.

On the other side, that is, the colorful side, yellow accents will triumph (keep in mind that one of the Pantone colors of the year is Illuminating yellow). So that it is not very sharp, it is better to choose it in details such as the cushions.

Gardens are fetish spaces during the summer, and a very ingenious way to introduce them into your home is through wallpaper. Botanical motifs always work, and can make all the difference in a previously boring bedroom. Look at the headboard wall in this room.

Another classic trend that cannot be missed in summer is nautical-style decoration. But don’t worry, we are not saying that you should turn your house into a maritime museum, but that you go for a mix of white and blue tones with the presence of fibers and wood to reinforce the general warmth. It is classic and fresh at the same time, infallible! And yes, adding a figurine of a sailboat is also allowed.

One of the goals of summer decoration is to shelve the heat, how to achieve it? Allying yourself with one of the freshest fabrics that exist (and which is a trend on top): linen. Light and elegant, linen is perfect for curtains in the living room and bedroom, as it allows light to enter, but protects the rooms from the direct rays of the sun, avoiding excess heat. The colors that will triumph this season? White, raw, beige, and in general, light tones that contribute to enhancing the brightness and freshness of the environments. You will also see blue and green.
When it comes to decorating terraces, porches and gardens, wicker or rattan armchairs cannot be missing. Resistant to the sun and heat, they offer a super fresh and summery look. The accessories that suit you the most? Linen and cotton cushions with floral, striped or textured prints.

So. Literally. This summer, indoor plants will be in charge of conceiving authentic oases in homes, bringing life and freshness to every corner. Our favorites for this time of year? Monsteras, palm trees, sansevierias, ficus and all those that just by seeing them take you to some tropical place.
The arrival of summer means a full-fledged change in bedding. Gone are the thick wool blankets. This season, organic cotton and linen are dyed with exotic and floral prints, green tones that remind us of the freshness of nature, or precious terracotta that revive the intensity of the earth. Also the relaxing blues inspired by the sea, or the neutral tones such as whites, beiges and polka dots that decorate coquettish plaids at the foot of the beds. As you can see, there are options for all tastes.

Outdoor lamps have become large, very large, and the oversize trend will continue to prevail on porches and terraces. Choose them in jute, rattan or any type of natural fiber, and if you can, match them!

Vertical gardens have been triumphing for several months, and it is a great way to add nature to any corner of your house without losing square meters. In fact, with the arrival of teleworking, the creation of green spaces in the home became a viral phenomenon, and this summer they promise to accompany us both indoors and outdoors.

Another of the trends that are repeated summer after summer and that do not intend to disappear are exotic prints, such as this classic-style armchair upholstered with botanical motifs that mark a successful contrast. Leaves, tropical flowers, and even animals like leopards or toucans, everything is allowed! The key lies in decorating with moderation in specific details so as not to overload the environments and make them stand out on their own.

A classic that never fails on summer terraces and balconies are string lights. They come in a lot of colors and styles : with bare bulbs, paper bulbs, solar bulbs, with colored lights… Be sure to add them to outdoor spaces, whatever their size, because the warmth you’ll gain when they arrive the sunset is priceless.
Bougainvillea, hydrangeas, rose bushes, ivy… The key to turning a summer terrace into a trend is to fill it with colorful plants and flowers. There are plenty of tropical strains that will help create that welcome jungle vibe when temperatures rise, but they’ll hold up better if you live in a humid area. The bird of paradise, the ciques and the branching palm tolerate the sun very well, while the kentia and the areca move in the shade like fish in the water. Rose bushes are another ideal option, as they bloom all year round. Which one do you prefer?
As a result of the concern to lead a more sustainable life in contact with nature, ceramic vases with a handcrafted finish have become a growing trend. With organic shapes or small imperfections resulting from the hand finish, painted in color or natural… Don’t hesitate: it’s the perfect accessory to give freshness to your summer decoration.
