The warmer temperatures and longer days of an unbeatable Wellington summer are a time to embrace fun, relaxation and relishing in the great outdoors. For many of us, summer also brings a new energy to embrace house updates, and is a fantastic time to bring a touch of summer into your Wellington home with some fresh new curtains or blinds.

If you’re looking for some design inspiration, here are some summer interior trends to get your creativity flowing.


Go Bright & Bold

Summer is a time to embrace the full spectrum of colours. Seek out shades that are warm, vibrant and perhaps just a little daring. Look at the colours you already have in your space, or use a specific item or fabric to inspire the rest of your colour decisions and find hues and colours that compliment each other.

Imagine a burst of lilac, accompanying lively lemon yellow, coral, and turquoise. Infusing colours into your window dressing, and the rest of your space, can instantly lift the mood and help you tailor an atmosphere that resonates with the energy of summer.


Time to get Tropical

Transport yourself to a tropical paradise and add a touch of exotic charm by incorporating summer-inspired motifs like palm leaves, pineapples, and florals into your fabric choices. 

Whether you’re looking for a subtle pattern or a bold motif, at creative curtains we always have an extensive range of bright and patterned fabrics for your to browse through.


Create an Indoor-Outdoor Flow

Make the most of the summer sunshine by choosing curtains or blinds that allow you to seamlessly blend indoor to outdoor spaces. 

If you have large feature windows or sliding doors that lead out onto outdoor patios, look into sheer curtain fabrics. Sheer curtains will diffuse the harsh summer light and allow a little extra privacy while still being able to brighten up your interior and allow the cool breeze to cool down your home.


Peaceful Pastels

Pastels are a timeless choice that will brighten up your space all year round, and are a perfect choice to a touch of summer warmth to your curtains or blinds. 

Picture shades of lilac, pink, baby blue, and soft green soothingly adorning your window space. Use pastels to create a sense of serenity and freshness that is ideal for bedrooms, living rooms, or any space where you want to create a light and airy atmosphere. 


If Summer and the start of a new year has you inspired to declutter and transform your space, it may be a great chance to embrace a touch of minimalism in your space, starting with your curtains. 

Clean lines, straightforward patterns and warm neutrals are all fantastic ways to create an uncluttered and calming window space. Simplifying your curtain and blind choices will allow the essence of summer to shine through without unnecessary distractions.
