Spring / Summer Trends 2021/22

“Each Moment of the Year has its Own Beauty”

It’s that time of the year where we start to reach less for our cosy winter jumpers and more for our linen skirts. Where we trade neutrals for pops of colour and springtime daisies make their way into our garden beds. As the seasons change we welcome the warmth of the sun tinting our skin and exciting our hearts for beach side picnics and balmy nights with fruity cocktails. Seasons and chapters are common dialogue these days, happy to place darker moments behind us and look forward to a sunnier future.


Cuban Colour

There’s no other way to start of a Spring / Summer trend blog without all of the colour! Welcome to Cuba… with ultramarine blue mixed with banana yellow, tangerine orange, hints of softer pink bring this trend into its own. Don’t know where to start? Channel far-away tropical lands with a tiki bar, an abundance of fruit and a statement banana palm tree. It’s the neon sign that makes this trend drift from the classic tropical trend. The juxtaposition of creamy pinks opposite lime green hit the senses with confusion and excitement. Pop on a pearl necklace or anklet (or both!), some bright hot pants and oversized linen shirt to take the trend into your wardrobe and sail away into the sunset.


Peach Picnic

Summer days bring in visions of lazing under giant fig trees or crunching our toes in white sand. Grab your straw hat and indulge in a grapefruit spritz embracing our peach picnic moment. Make the picnic purposeful this Summer by choosing tones of apricot, coral and salmon. Evoking warmth, joy, optimism and regeneration, these hues pare best with electric blues for a bold, dynamic combination or spearmint for feminine sophistication. With a lot of us making up for lost time with friends and families, picnics are the perfect moment to embrace your loved ones with good food while being surrounded by nature. Feast in the fields this Summer and make the most of it with the extra touches like candles, leather ottomans, vintage glassware and creamy throws for when the sun slips behind the horizon. Bring in the peach tones with linen napkins and strawberry macaroons, even dusty roses to add a little something special. Now all you need to do is send the invites and choose the cheese!

Electric Pastel

Life’s a party, dress for it! That means outfit and interior. This season’s Spring/ Summer is inspiring a little bit more disco, a little bit more colour and a little bit more drama. This invigorating trend honours the classic pastel palette of Spring with a twist. Turn up the saturation for an electric display of lavender, aqua, pink lemonade, zesty lemon lime, and accents of metallic. Between backdrops and bouquets, your event will come alive with neon lights and mirror balls to offset the unexpected colour combinations found in the floral arrangements. Dress to express in delicate floral prints or a sequin number this Spring as we herald the start of the party season.

Velvet Orchid 

Bought to us originally from WGSN’s trend forecaster, we’re here to talk about Orchid Flower. Continuing our energetic theme of colour for Spring / Summer, Orchid Flower is an intense, saturated tone inspired to evoke thoughts of positivity and escapism with its hyper-real shade built on its magenta undertone. We love this colour contrasted with an electric blue, specifically an oceanic teal to balance the depth of this tone. Rather than flood your interior with this colour, integrate pops of Orchid Flower with cushions, statement furniture pieces or artworks. If you’re not ready to embark upon your mulberry hued colour journey, hero the plant itself into your space to enlighten the senses with this creative colour.
