This Summer's Hottest Design Trends

Sizzling summer tips for easy interior design.

Summer is the perfect time to breakout pops of color to brighten up the home. Here are some helpful hints for freshening up your home this summer from lifestyle expert, Denise Davies of D2 Interieurs.

Here Comes the Sun: Don’t be afraid of color, it’s only paint. A fresh coat of paint can be a real game changer! Paint the ceiling too — it’s the fifth wall!

Bold colors can be sophisticated and modern. Every room deserves a good design including the kids’ playroom. Minimal and clean lines work very well in a room. After all, color makes people happy.

Chill Out: Cool it off and simmer down. Get some comfy floor pillows and soft textures to make your living spaces more chill.

Create vignettes with your coffee table books and magazines. Place your lights on dimmers so you can control the settings.


Stay Out: Outdoor furniture has become as important as ever since it is now just as stylish and versatile as what you would find indoors.

Want to add a touch of fun to your outdoor space? Cue the colorful accents.


Mix it Up: The days of matching furniture and lighting are over. A well-curated room should look like it’s been there forever; not like a designer just left the building.

Your house is your life. What do you want to see when you walk in the door? The answer is often not a matched set of furnishings, but a collection of things that are distinctly different yet work well together.


Bring the Outside In: Fresh flowers from the garden and a fig tree can go a long way. Forget the traditional vase and be creative.
