There’s nothing we love more here at Littlewoods Blog HQ than giving our home a bit of a makeover; it doesn’t have to be expensive or extreme but adding a rug here, some cushions or some new curtains can easily change the look and feel of a room.
Our buyers have put together some fantastic collections of the hottest home trends – from light and airy French inspired pieces through to dramatic and seductive colour combinations, here’s our first look at some of our favourite styles for your home decor this summer.
Bold and Beautiful
We don’t like to shy away from bright colours but if you want something dramatic then pair it with a black background for maximum effect. Bold reds, sultry blacks and flashes of white are key to this look, which will add a seductive feel to any room. Don’t be afraid to opt for bright, bold prints to help change the style of a room; we love this striking red flower canvas print, which captures the look perfectly, and this black high gloss dining table shows how the trend can be carried through every room in the house. Shop the bold and beautiful look here.
We love purple; it can be dramatic, soft, calming or electric, no matter what your style, you can find a shade of purple to match it. Use purple accessories to add a colour accent to your room or opt for bold purple soft furnishings, such as bedding or curtains, to help really bring out the tones. This deep purple Hemmingway sofa is a particular favourite, as it is a timeless style that will forever give your home that touch of style, while the colour is right on trend for this season. You might not think the colour purple can be used everywhere in the house, but we think that any bathroom can be given an instant makeover with our Japanese Chrysanthemum print range; with everything from towels to accessories, right through to the toilet brush! You can shop the entire look here.
Our final pick for today is the En Vogue look, which is based around French inspired furniture and pastel tones on a white background for a light, bright and airy feel that will brighten up any room.
Ornate frames and detailing is the key to picking furniture and mix your sumptuous pastels with hints of metallics for an extravagant feel. Anything that looks like it’s been homemade, and delicate floral touches all add to the overall countryside effect. If it’s your bedroom you’re looking to revamp, then we recommend taking a look at Kirstie Allsopp’s bedding range which has a perfect country cottage feel.

So as you can see, it’s easy to bring trends in to the home without creating something that you’re going to want to change in a few months. The key is to stick to a style you’re comfortable with and just bring touches of the trend in to areas that can be easily changed or as classic pieces that you know you’ll love forever.
