Hot Interior Design Trends To Keep You Cool This Summer!

Summer's upon us and it has brought the warmth and sunshine to the beautiful Pacific Northwest! I've been on the hunt for 2013 summer interior design trends and am ready to share the hot interior design trends with you. GO BOLD OR GO HOME: Black & White

A resurgence of classic design elements have been given a drastic twist this summer and are coming back stronger than ever - some of our favorites include a bold black and white look inside a home that Kelly Wearstler designed in Bel Air. I love the black and white chevron floor paired with the black and white furniture, it makes a daring statement!
Keep It Brassy: Brass Interiors 

Brass always adds a warm element to any space, so why not splash it all over your home for a luxurious, high-end look? Or, you can always keep it simple by splicing brass into your home with subtle accessories? It's still a trend that is sizzling hot.

Walk On the Wild Side: Animal Print

Graphic animal prints allow you to add a hint of exotic chic to any room in your home, so make a big roar this summer by adding animal print decor into your space!

Bring on the Brights: Neon 

Brighten up your room for the summer by adding some neon pops of color into your space! Neon adds a dash of excitement to any room, but for the less adventurous souls, try a single statement piece, while keeping the rest of your space neutral.

Bold Tones: Jewel Hues 

Deep jewel-toned statement piece like this sofa and chairs can add luxurious depth to any space, especially this chic dining room.

Bold Pattern Play: Mixing Your Patterns

Don't be afraid to mix in several different patterns to your home, it will make your space go from drab to fab!

Embellished With Envy: Statement Walls

Embellished walls are the talk of the town this summer, and for good reason! Drastic wall patterns, textures and tones can instantly transform any room in your home.

Sparkle and Shine: Geodes

This is such an ingenious way to incorporate geodes into your decor on a large scale! If you'd like a subtle solution, you can always turn to Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams wall art.
