As we browse the kitchen trends for spring and summer, we’re falling for the floral and pining after the palms. Warmer weather welcomes patterns inspired by nature, and we can’t get enough of lush leaves and pretty petals. If you’re looking for a seasonal way to freshen up your kitchen, consider one of these patterns that are perfect for spring and summer.
The ornamental beauty of paisley patterns offers an enchanting way to introduce spring pastels or summer brights into the kitchen. Paisley pulls together a rainbow of complementary colors, and makes it easy to play off of other elements in your kitchen, such as your walls and cabinetry.
Some kitchen trends can be hard to incorporate with an existing theme, but paisley is one of the exceptions. Along with its multi-colored design, it possesses both traditional and modern qualities that accent a variety of kitchen themes. Pick out some paisley plates or find it printed on linens to liven up your table.
Floral motifs and lovely leaves make up the garden-inspired glory that is botanical patterns. If you’re immediately envisioning antiquated window curtains reminiscent of your grandmother’s home — stop! Today’s botanicals are fresh, fun and anything but boring. You’ll find elegant varieties influenced by French and European cultures, as well as quirky styles with vibrant colors and accents.
This year’s botanicals are also much more understated than in the past, with tiny prints against clean backdrops for a beautiful balance. Bring the garden indoors with a new tablecloth or window treatment.
It doesn’t take a day at the beach to enjoy a taste of the tropics. Tropical patterns are right on trend, and have evolved from a kitschy beach house theme to a sophisticated selection appropriate for the entire home.
The large print palms and vibrant wildlife that make up this trend can look right at home in the kitchen. The possibilities are practically endless, but we’re particularly fond of propping up a tropical platter on an easel along the countertop, for a bold statement.
If your table has a bench seat, a few decorative palm pillows (or seat cushions) are another fun way to bring this organic pattern into the kitchen. Amplify the look with some pineapple accents (which are also having a moment), and you will have mastered this warm weather trend.
If you want to add a splash of summer to your kitchen without going overboard, stripes are a classic choice that will warm things up without weighing you down.
With their nautical vibe, stripes will always remind us of a day at sea, or being poolside on a hot day. Keep this pattern traditional with deep navy and crisp white — or think outside the sandbox and get creative with a bright neon or pastel mix. Stripes may historically be a classic choice, but today’s designers have revolutionized this pattern by offering stripe décor in a wide range of colors and sizes to suit different tastes.
