They say that trends of every kind are always cyclic. With each recurrence comes an update to suit the times, much like in the Summer Interior Design Trends of 2022. You’ll notice that the genesis of most current Summer trends comes from past styles, yet they fit beautifully into modern homes and efficiently function in our daily lives.

And now, with the change of season, homeowners are looking to accentuate the wonders of Summer within the interiors of their homes, and luckily, we’ve got just the right decor ideas for this year’s sunny weather– that can also work year-round!

Here are 9 Refreshing Summer Decor Trends For Your Home this 2022!

Curved Contours 

A decor trend reminiscent of the 70s, your favorite soft curves and fluid contours have made quite a comeback. This Summer, showcasing the beauty of curves is the real deal!

Add curved furniture, decor, lighting, or architectural elements like arched doorways to soften the starkness of your minimalist interior. It’ll also give any space a layer of visual comfort, especially for circles, ovals, sculptural forms, and fluid waves.

Jungle Greens

As always, plants are the easiest and most inexpensive way to uplift a home interior. There’s really nothing like summer blooms and lush greens to add life (literally and figuratively) to your living space! We’re talking about the more, the better!

Fill your end tables with monsteras, bromeliads, fittonias, and different kinds of ficus and dracaena plants. You can also consider floating shelves with ferns, snake plants, spider plants, and creeping money plants. Meanwhile, you can start a vertical herb garden if your kitchens get the right lighting conditions or add a ton of potted plants to your balconies and outdoor spaces. It’s all about an urban jungle, ladies and gents!

Biophilic Décor 

Using plants in your interior décor is part of a bigger trend that’s best in both interiors and architecture– Biophilic design. It’s gained traction for a few years now, and it seems it’s here to stay!

Biophilia is an innate desire and affinity of human beings with the natural world. This design is created to emulate the natural world in our living surroundings, and it helps a lot with well-being, reducing stress and overall physical, mental, and emotional health. Add natural materials like cane, rattan, bamboo, and light wood paired with summer textiles like linen, cotton, and jute. You can also use a soothing, nature-inspired color palette accentuated by natural contours like live-edge tables and organic shapes and maximize your home’s exposure to daylight soften by flowing sheers. Another idea is to use river stones or pebbles in your urban garden or around water features.

Adopt this trend for your Summer interior décor and keep it year-round!

Minimalist Gets an Update  

The crisp-white, clutter-free minimal design style is always a welcome theme in any season, but its starkness (due to an almost reductive décor) needs an updated version this Summer!

Go for a much warmer tone to fit your Summer bedroom and house interior design ideas. The monochromatic color scheme infused with a layering of earthy, muted, and soothing colors matched with natural materials and fabric to add textural layers to the clean, streamlined décor peppered with metallic accents will be best.

Bold Colors and Prints  

Color is never a bad idea in the Summertime, and the 2022 Summer interior design trends are loving it. Go crazy with bold patterns and colors for your outdoor living spaces! Using patterns and prints that emphasize color contrasts is a big Summer 2022 trend, so don’t be afraid to use them on throw pillows, curtains, decorative objects, or a wallpapered accent wall. Going for reupholstered sofa or lounge chair in fun summer colors and prints to liven up the space or high-contrast rugs are also great ways to incorporate this décor trend.

Open-Plan Living  

Modern interior designs almost always involve open-plan living spaces. It’s a symptom of a change in current lifestyles, as people are now spending more time at home and need to maximize floor plans and indoor spaces.

An open-plan space will allow more free movement around the home yet still incorporate clear zones for various activities like working, eating, exercising, and relaxing. It’ll also make your home feel more open, airy, and easier to manage, especially during Summer when almost all family members are at home most of the time.

A Mix of Material, Textures, and Styles  

Go and layer different materials and textures, and mix a variety of shapes and styles this Summer! The trend isn’t necessarily maximal, but it is a balanced layering that doesn’t overwhelm the space.

Achieve an “eclectic” feel with polka dots with florals, geometric patterns with botanical ones, black and white with colors, wood with metal and cane, curves with boxes, vintage with modern, minimal with boho chic. It’s all about taking a few elements that seemingly contrast and elegantly putting them together– a balance in the juxtaposition.

The Metallics  

Warm metallics accentuate your home décor, especially in the Summer. For your bedroom, go for metallic highlights or accents that can enliven a muted space. Mixing similar metals, or even one or two warm metallics like bronze, copper, brass, gold, or rose gold with cool tones like stainless steel, gunmetal, or silver, will also work. The key is using just a few pieces to highlight, not overwhelm the décor. Your lighting, décor pieces, wall accents, furniture details, door handles, knobs, and accents on soft furnishings are great places to start.

Multipurpose Spaces  

Multipurpose spaces are not a Summer interior design trend, but it’s quite universal. It’s making use of the space we have and making it serve us in many ways in the most aesthetic approach possible. A living room with a reading nook, a bar-slash-dining area, a bedroom, and a workstation? Yes, count us in! Flexible spaces with multipurpose furniture is an interior design trend that has come out over the last two years and is here to stay for a bit longer.
