Summer 2015 is right around the corner and we have all the up and coming trends for the season. We at Russdales have the insight on this summer’s interior design tips to ensure that when you makeover your home, your decorating style stands out!

Bold Patterns

Bold patterns are ideal for making a statement in your home décor. These patterns can be anything from stripes to floral!

 Bold Patterns/Geometry
With summer approaching, bold and powerful patterns push to the forefront of the interior design world. There is a wide  range of potential choices for homeowners and landlords alike, from floral and wildlife designs to geometry. Monochrome  is hot on the scene once again, and combining this with bold straight lines or chequered patterns can really give your home  the ‘wow’ factor. There are many ways to incorporate these bold patterns, for example using wallpaper, cushions, rugs or,  as seen in the picture, stair runners.

Beach-Style Colours

Beach-style colours are great for bringing the true feeling of summer into your home using bright and cheerful colours.
