Summer Design Trends 2023: Bright Colors, Natural Materials, and Indoor-Outdoor Living

In 2023 we’re seeing new trends along with a resurgence of some older ones. Bright colors, natural materials, and curated outdoor spaces are some of the latest trends in design. Read on for the top summer 2023 trends. Go ahead and grab your inspiration! 

Bring nature inside

Summer trends revolve around bringing the outdoors inside. Popular decor themes reflect nature and its colors and motifs. Add plants with lush foliage to bring a tropical feel to your home. Ferns, snake plants, and monsteras are excellent choices to add a summer feel to your home. 

Botanical prints in wall art strengthen this decor theme by introducing visual appeal. Don’t forget to create a window sill herb garden in your kitchen. In addition to a beautiful aroma, fresh ingredients for preparing tasty meals will be right within arm’s reach.

Bright colors

Bright color palettes draw inspiration from sunny days and beach vacations. Blues, pastels, and earthy hues are the trending color choices to recreate a tranquil vibe. 

Turquoise blue is reminiscent of crystal clear waters, but you can also go for a darker navy as a more refined option. Mint green, pale yellow, and baby blue are other choices to consider for a fresh update inspired by the coast.

Outdoor living

Curated outdoor spaces have been a massive trend since 2020, and their popularity won’t fade soon. People are looking for ways to spruce up their garden and turn it into a relaxing retreat for outdoor entertainment. 

A wooden bar cart and a dedicated al fresco dining area are essential for hosting guests. Add a relaxed seating area to that, and you have a summer-ready spot for endless hours of entertainment.

Natural materials

Layered textures and warm wood tones bring an organic feel to any space. Linen and cotton are the preferred fabrics for summer, coming in the form of curtains, throw pillows, and upholstery. Rattan and bamboo convey a relaxed vibe, ideal for a stylish outdoor seating area. 

The beauty of natural woodgrain is always in style, but summer trends revolve around light and warm tones instead of faux and gray-toned wood.

Touch of personality

Many interior designers believe that people are tired of all-beige interiors. Now, we crave a touch of personality that conveys our style and taste. The focus has shifted from a neutral aesthetic to spaces that tell a vivid story about their occupants.

Think about displaying your collection and showing off your favorite hobby. A curated mix of patterns and textures brings a relaxed feel to this space, while the fresh color accents add a summer feel.
