TOP 5 SUMMER TRENDS

It’s heating up!
Aside from a top notch air conditioner and an always-full ice tray, we’ve been starting to wonder what changes we should be making to our interiors this summer.

But who to ask? The founder and editor of a lust-worthy lifestyle blog? Senior stylist at one of Australia’s leading interiors magazines? Someone who lives and breathes design and can spot an emerging trend a mile off? How about all three?

Meet Heidi Albertiri, the woman behind:

The Life Style Edit (interiors, fashion, travel and anything drool-worthy, really)

Home Beautiful’s impeccable styling (why don’t our homes look just like that?!)

The following five summer trends that you’re about to fall in love with.

1. Indoor Plants
This season is all about bringing the outdoors in and creating a fresh environment to relax in. We’re moving on from the Fiddle Leaf Fig and embracing a tropical vibe with palms – they’re available in all sizes so they’re ideal for bathrooms, lounge rooms and bedrooms. Place them in a natural fibre basket or a stand and the look is complete.

2. Pared-Back Linens
When it comes to styling your bed, think ‘less is more’. Look for flowing sheets in white and soft blush for a neutral effortless look and choose materials like linen and cotton, as they are breathable and perfect for balmy summer nights.

3. Mats On The Floor
Bring a pop of colour to your home by choosing a vibrant mat or rug to add to your living space. These are perfect for bare feet swanning around. Plus, they will lift the personality of any room in your home. My favourites are the ones that are bright and colourful with plenty of texture.

4. Hints of Rattan
Be it a basket with a plant inside, as beautiful chair or a rattan handbag thrown over a door handle, these styling essentials are an affordable touch to add a relaxed summertime vibe to any space in your home. The trick is the not put too much thought into styling them and make it look as natural as possible for an effortless look.

5. Accessories in Natural Fibres
If you live in Australia then the warmer months are all about being outside in the sunshine, which is why I love using natural textures to bring the outside in. Look for accessories in natural fibres such as wood and stone. Then introduce these materials with food platters, plates, homewares and decorative pieces. These are the perfect pieces for a summertime dinner party, paired back with a fresh floral arrangement.
