Midlands based interior design studio Cream & Black have ran their eye over what they feel will be the key trends to keep a look out for in the summer of 2019
There’s a lot to look forward to this summer, including the season’s hotly-anticipated interior design trends that will transform spaces large and small.
Midlands-based interior design studio, Cream & Black, predicts the hottest interior design trends for this summer. From curved seating with softer lines and mid-century modern classic furniture shapes and styles creating less uniform spaces, to matt/powdery finishes with their soft-to-the-touch look, yet incredibly tactile finish, here are Cream & Black’s top seven summer design trend show-stoppers:
TOP TREND 1: Curved furniture
Organic and natural shapes are now filtering down to many high street furniture companies, making elegant forms an accessible option in a stylish way. Clean lines and structured furniture has been the go-to look for many years, but why not try something softer? Curves can easily be incorporated into interiors by choosing a love seat or sofa. We particularly love the shape of this curved classic from B&B Italia

TOP TREND 2: Crittal-style windows and doors
Using Crittal-style doors and partitioning is a great way to divide spaces whilst allowing light to flow naturally around the space. We love this look so much, we’ve recently implemented this idea at the most recent commercial project we have completed.
TOP TREND 3: Zellige tiling
We’ve recently installed a dark kitchen at a cosy thatched cottage in Wales and we used zellige tiles in a blush tone to help lift the space. The tiles were installed in an upright arrangement to help elongate the space.
TOP TREND 4: Terrazzo light fittings
Terazzo has featured in many of our recent projects and continues to remain a popular choice. Whether it’s a feature wall tile, a light fitting or a set of coasters, we admire how Terazzo has pushed its way into the scope of modern design and we highly recommend this material to help bring any interior to life.
TOP TREND 5: Mid-century modern classic furniture shapes
We’re constantly looking at new furniture shapes and styles and have more recently found ourselves gravitating towards the mid-century modern classics. We’ve found that using a range of different furniture shapes creates a less uniform and more comfortable space of charm and interest.
TOP TREND 6: Matt/powdery finishes
Rather than using brushed or polished finishes, we’ve been incorporating matt/powdery finishes, which appear soft to touch, making them extremely tactile. This type of finish can be used in many different ways. For more of a permanent solution, consider incorporating matt sink or matt brassware.
