We always want to keep up with the latest trends and styles that pop up left and right, and summer 2016 is no exception! We have included here the latest and greatest summer trends for your home. They stretch all over the board, but every one is on point! Try to add at least one of these summer trends to your home this year.

Glitz and Glam

Glitz and Glam

Add something shiny, something that draws attention, or some fur. Which ever way you go with this, it’s girl fun and totally chic. The best part about this trend is that you can make it look feminine or masculine. It all depends on what home decor you mix with it. For a more feminine glow, pair it with animal print or a handful of fresh flowers. If you want to take it into a masculine territory, pair it with more metals or dark grays.

Orange is the New Black

“Orange is the New Black” isn’t just on Netflix. We’re bringing it into our homes with these summer trends. Check out these awesome dining room table end chairs. These accent chairs you can place anywhere around your home to really brighten up each room. And just how cool are those square light fixtures hanging over those white lounging chairs?! Clearly, the go-to color for pairing is a light sea blue. Keep that in mind when you are trying to mix colors and patterns.

Ruffles and Lace

Well, this trend just took a very feminine turn… Where my single ladies at? This is one of the summer trends that were created just for you! This should be the number one trend in all women’s apartments and homes this summer. It’s elegant, feminine, and still fun! Complement it with some beautiful pastels and you have this perfected.

White on White

Clean, airy, and calm. White on white is perfect for relaxing all summer. This is the look of your spa getaway retreat…why not bring that same feeling into your home? Even though it’s all white, doesn’t mean it’s boring. Play up the color by mixing white patterns and textures. It gives the room personality and adds flair to these summer trends.

Wild, Wild West

Wild Wild West

This wild, wild west trend is definitely bringing some edge to the summer trends group. Check out that leather fringe, those antler wall decor items, and all that animal fur. This trend spices things up a bit and gives the room a masculine and edgy flair. Decorate with darker neutrals and lots of texture. Play with it a bit and you’re sure to love it!

Color Impressionism: Which Feelings Coordinate With Which Colors

We are all aware that the color we pick for each room will affect our feelings and emotions. We’re going to give you an easy guide to which colors give you which reactions. This should make your decisions much easier!

Black

Because we don’t tend to use black when painting but we do influence how we feel with a lot of black accents and large black furniture, I’ll start here. Black screams power with elegance. The word timeless tends to come to mind which is why it is used so much in not only design, but also in fashion and luxury brands.

Gray

Getting lighter, we come to gray. It is normally used for sleek, modern designs. It has a “techy” feel to it, so we suggest using it in an office or study room. It will stay calm and conservative next to any accessories you might add to make a splash.

Green

Moving on to brighter colors, we hit green. It is becoming a huge thing to use eco-friendly materials, and with that, we tend to think of the color green. It causes thoughts of money, growth, freshness, and balance. Green would be a great color for a library!

Purple

Purple tends to have a spiritual, royal, creative feel. You have many different feelings from this one color. It really just depends on how you use the color. It can also give senses of serenity and artistry. The darker shades cause more luxurious feelings, while the lighter shades tend to be more feminine. We suggest using purple for a bedroom or a hallway depending on how bold you want to make it.

Pink

Pink, being very similar to purple, is also very feminine, friendly, and evokes modern appeal. It can be bold. It can be soft. You can really use it however you would like. We think adding a soft blush pink to a light living room is the perfect touch for a single girl’s apartment.

Red

Red is one of the ultimate power colors (next to black, of course). It’s dynamic, but it’s also known to stimulate appetite, which is why so many restaurants use it in their logos and designs. It gets very overpowering pretty quickly, so definitely be careful on how you use it. We would love to see more people using it in their kitchens, though! Try it out!

Blue

Depending on the shade, like many of the colors, it can give off different feelings, such as calming, peaceful, loyal, and reliable feelings. It’s a great color for a living room or den. It’s a good idea to have a color that exudes loyalty and dependability in the family room for the family to soak in.

Yellow

When we think of yellow, we often think of the sun, how it’s bright, cheerful, and energetic. It’s a great color for every room honestly, because it brings such great vibes and automatically can put anyone in an exceptional mood. This color is another one that stimulates appetite, so consider putting this in your kitchen as well!

Orange

Same as the yellow, our friend orange here, evokes energy and vibrancy. It’s an inviting color that gives positive, playful, and friendly feelings. Orange is another great color for a living room.

White

We saved white for last. We use white a lot when decorating, because the color gives off a pure, almost sacred feel. It can make any room feel beautiful by looking pure which is a crazy concept all in itself. If taken care of, it can also make every place look extremely clean, which is always a plus. We don’t suggest it if you have multiple children in the house, but for a single’s apartment or a house without any kids, it has an amazing outcome. It also makes everything look bigger!
