The NEXT Big Thing: Stunning Interior Themes For Summer

On a cold, wet, windy morning I had just one thing on my calendar I was looking forward to: the NEXT Summer 2017 preview show, where I’d get to discover new interior themes lined up for my favourite season.

My first impression on entering the preview show was that NEXT is going tropical! Visions of colourful destinations featuring exotic flowers sprang to mind, coupled with an ethnic theme and an abundance of textures.

And there was definitely a pineapple vibe going on – ranging from pineapple themed glasses to stunning bedside lamps – one of my favourite pieces.

It was clear that many of the pieces had been inspired by global influences, with colourful fabrics and patterns, mixed with a variety of designs and materials.

So, here’s the low down on what interior themes you can expect in store for this summer…


The NEXT Big Thing: Stunning Interior Themes For Summer

The Raw Theme

This interior theme celebrates traditional African craft techniques with tribal motifs, geometric prints and distressed, washed finishes.

Earthy tones of burnt ginger, deep brown and stone act as a warming palette that brings the heart of the Sahara into the show.

Salvage-style lighting utilises reclaimed pipes for an industrial edge, while the Wayney edge coffee table showcases earthy texture with an exposed oak grain finish.

The Cuba Theme

Next stop is Cuba. A nostalgic trend, dinnerware and fun picnic pieces sit alongside accessories in vibrant pops of chartreuse green and candy pink, to create a bright and cultured collection reminiscent of old Havana.

Brushed gold pineapples and wildlife prints add a fun tropical twist, while matte velvet upholstery brings a rich, opulent feel.

The Supernature Theme

Pretty and opulent, Supernature sees hand drawn botanicals adorn linens and crisp cottons in a peaceful colour palette of fresh mint, lustful lilac and chalky blue.

Creating an air of tranquility, alluring marble-topped side tables add a contemporary edge along with lighting and accessories that feature open-wired elements to give the illusion of space.

The Horizon Theme

Stepping outside, Horizon welcomes island life in the form of deep sea blues and jungle greens, Bold printed textiles are key and balanced by accessories inspired by the sea.

Occasional garden seating like the Andaman hanging chair create a versatile piece that can be used both inside and out for a bold statement.

There’s also see an update to traditional alfresco dining pieces with bench-style seating featuring striking hair pin legs for a modern twist.

So now you’re all genned up on this year’s NEXT interior themes, which one takes your fancy? And if you enjoyed seeing what’s new at NEXT, take a look at what’s new in interiors at Wilko this summer!

I adore Next homeware and kids clothes. My house is kitted out with Next. They always have such gorgeous, high quality things and I love all the themes they release every year. Next is definitely my weak spot for shopping. I’m really loving some of the things you’ve posted here. x

I am loving the supernature theme, that is right up my alley though I am not that good at interior design.

I like the Cuba theme – very exotic. Would make me feel like I’m on holiday all the time. Will have to pop in and have a look around!

When I first looked at the pictures I would never have guessed that it was Next! I love the Horizon theme, I would love an outside summer house or sheltered area and have that set up, it would be amazing!

How fab to get a look at the Next designs. My own choice would be Horizon, I love the deep teal colours. I’m looking for inspiration at the moment, so certainly worth having a look at Next.

Thanks Jen – good choice!
