Shop The Look: Spring, Summer Design Trends for 2016 (posted 4th March 2016)

On Tuesday Spring officially sprung... but if like me you found it hard to find the sun, perhaps we can inspire some warm, summery thoughts with the following rather fabulous pieces of furniture and accessories! We think you'll be seeing much more of these over the spring and summer. So if you're looking to update your home and give your interiors a fresh, spring feel, let us inspire you with some options, and they include terrariums, monochrome and tribal themes, pineapples and even a flamingo!


One of the biggest trends that we think will be seen a lot more of (especially in the Suna Interior Design office, namely on our desks - adding a refreshing punch of green) are terrariums! Eye-catching, easy to look after, available in loads of shapes and sizes, you can get creative and even make them yourself!

Suna Interior Design's top tip for terrariums from Alysha who is leading the way in our office: "If you're looking for a good plant, that requires little TLC, try a Tillandsia."


A theme that was seen at the recent London Fashion Week was monochrome. Andrew Martin have a great collection to get you going, here are some of their pieces:

But there are many varieties of wonderful accessories for you to own, to add intrigue to your home. This is a theme that will continue to trend over the spring and into the summer.
