9 Interior Design Trends for Summer 2021
The cheery mood of the summer season inevitably reflects on its distinctly beautiful decor. Those breezy fabrics, muted color palettes, natural fibers, and boho influences associated with the sunny weather make it feel like you’re bringing the sunshine indoors to stay. And even though it may seem like the style is purely seasonal, there are easy ways to incorporate these 2021 summer design trends into your year-round decor.
Make that summery vibe in your home for keeps– here are the latest interior design trends for Sumer 2021! 🌤️
Summer brings us bright skies and sandy beaches, and if it had an official color, you bet it’s going to be a beautiful, vibrant blue! For this summer season, go for richer blues as an accent wall in your living room, or try using light blue linens and decor pieces with your white backdrop to give your home a graceful Grecian vibe. If you’re not a big fan of blue, then pops of bright cobalt blues can bring a muted vibrancy to your space. Think of incorporating this sunny hue into your decor and get a constant reminder of the clear skies and sun on your skin.
Minimalist is the way
Minimalism isn’t uncommon in the list of top interior design trends, and it looks like it’s still here to stay this Summer 2021– with a bit of a twist, of course! While the minimalist style was all about clean lines, seamless structures, and a stylish austere design, interior designers have started to build on minimalism to take a more meaningful way to reflect a clean yet functional approach. Try incorporating the minimalist style into your home decor this summer! As it continually evolves to play with sunlight, natural greenery, some pops of color, and more, you can be sure that even in the dead of winter, the sunlight will still shine through and give you a glimpse of the sunny season to come.
Neutrals are here to stay
While white, ivory, pale gray, and beige hues are normally associated with the summer season, no one can deny that these neutral colors are perfect all year round! The thing is, neutrals give you an excellent backdrop for whatever theme you’re planning to switch over to as time goes by while also holding its own. Your white couches and gauzy drapes will never go off-style, and taupe shades of gray and beige will work exceptionally well for your bedroom decor. In case you’d like to incorporate a bit of color into your home style at any given point, all you have to do is switch out accents like pillows, blankets, rugs, and vases to keep up with your evolving taste. Indeed, neutral furniture will do a good job in being a blank canvass for your ever-changing hues.
Make a bold statement
Yes, bold statement pieces are making a comeback this Summer 2021! With more and more homeowners opting for an open space layout and a minimalist design, bold statement pieces make a great focal point while also putting your unique tastes on display! Get yourself a stand-out piece and let it be a conversation starter with people coming over. Your guests are sure to feel like they know you a little better after their visit!
The natural approach
If you want something sustainable, going for natural elements takes the cake! Of late, people are becoming obsessed with plants. Who can blame them? There is, indeed, something so enriching about the experience of helping plants grow. The good thing is, greenery is a big part of summer decor! Incorporate some plants and succulents into your home decor and let it change your life. Easily swap your plants out according to season, and get a new hobby out of decorating your home!
Give it a rustic vogue
The rustic style, arguably, is a crowd-pleaser. It’s appealing to anyone who prefers modern home comforts yet wants to inject some character details into their living spaces. The style works ideally in old-style homes that already have interesting features like exposed beams, original floorboards, or paneled walls. However, with a considered balance of old and new pieces, it also can be easily re-created in modern houses. Look for unique pieces that show grain and texture, and perfect this homey look!
Breezy is just right
Light, airy fabrics go well with seasons where you can keep your windows open. But, if you want to keep those textures on display year-round, the easiest way is with curtains and throws! Go for a lighter material like linen for your throw blankets to provide the warmth you need while still looking casual draped over the couch. Meanwhile, fabrics like cotton voile, flax linen, sheer silk, or something similar will go great with your curtains to get the breezy feel indoors, no matter the time of year!
Use natural wood
Bohemian decor is mostly associated with rattan, cane, wicker, and other wood of the same hues. And though the Boho style screams summer season, the look can work all year round! Natural elements with light colors bring elegance without the heaviness and gravitas that deeper, richer woods may give. So using lighter wood elements still maintains an airy, spacious feel that you can easily incorporate with a minimal design. A win-win situation, agree?
Let that sunshine in!
One of the best things about summer is natural light coming into your home. That’s why this year, interior designers over the world are recommending homes to feature plenty of natural light. While we acknowledge that this may become challenging to achieve if you don’t own the space you live in, you can always maximize the light coming in by using sheer curtains or keeping your windows open. If you do own your space, opting for big windows to ensure that your area is flooded with natural light will bring all of the sunshine in, even if it’s limited during the summer months. Alternatively, warm, fuzzy light bulbs can imitate the feel of daylight so that your room always feels bright, even in the dead of winter.
