Summer Home Decor Trends & Interior Design Ideas

Summer is one of the most exciting seasons, as it’s a great opportunity to mix up the style and ambience of your home. Even more, one of the best ways to be happier at home is to bring a bit of paradise inside, which is more important than ever.

So let’s look at our top 5 summer home decor trends so you can create fresh, lively, and stylish rooms all season long!

Relaxing Coastal Style

When brainstorming summer home decor ideas, the first one that came to mind is the relaxed coastal style, loved by all! 

This interior design style focuses on light and airy spaces that reflect the ocean, waves, and the beach, which are all a perfect fit for summer. Regarding colour palettes, a great idea would be to stick with a colour scheme that reflects the ocean, sand, and sky, like crisp whites, neutral hues, and fresh blues.

Imagine the serenity and tranquillity you feel when you’re on a beach on an island. The emotion is so alluring that it makes people dream of seaside getaways. Coastal interior design can visually interpret this powerful emotion in your home!

Bring The Outdoors Indoors


Another favourite summer home decor trend is biophilic interior design, essentially bringing the outdoors indoors! Nothing says summer more than gorgeous green trees and blooming flowers, which will bring to life any indoor space. 

To invite harmony and relaxation, look for summer decorations for your home that include tall, standing house plants, like a monstera or snake. These sturdy house plants are like living art as they can easily add vibrant colour to any room.

If you are not a fan of living plants, try to use realistic-looking fake plants. That way, you can feel like you have a little piece of the garden in your home, yet never have to worry about forgetting to water and care for the plants. However, our recommendation is to invite as many “real life” plants into your home as they have many benefits for your well-being, such as:

  • reducing stress levels
  • boosting your productivity
  • improving your mood
  • absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen
  • … and many more

Another great idea would be to grow a window sill herb garden! Nothing represents the ideal intersection of function and style better than a decoration you can add to your lunch. Some of our favourite herbs to grow on your own are mint, rosemary, sage and parsley – they make any meal delicious in no time.

But no matter the season, one thing is for sure – plants will never go out of style!

Bold Colours


This year, bold colours are back in trend, from sunshine yellow to intense green to ocean blue, interior designers love vibrant hues, and so do homeowners!

These colours are perfect if you want to bring life to a neutral room or add a summer splash to a more formal space, perhaps by having statement artwork, accent pieces, or rugs. In case you missed it, we have a great article on How To Create A Complementary Colour Scheme In Interior Design if you want to learn more. 

Our recommendation is to use natural colour palettes. Why? Natural colour schemes have been proven to reduce stress, increase productivity and creativity, and generally make us happier. Therefore, these colours are perfect for summer home decor indoors and outdoors.

Natural Materials

Natural materials are a must-have this year when thinking about home decor for summer, like bamboo, jute, wood and seagrass, just to name a few.

For example, incorporating woven baskets and rattan furniture in your dining room can offer an organic and calming feel. Natural materials bring a touch of the outdoors inside, adding a fresh summery feeling to any space. Whether used in dining furniture, lighting, or accessories, natural materials are a great way to create a calming, relaxed atmosphere in the home for summer.

Designers and homeowners are increasingly looking for natural materials in interior design, from natural woven materials like sisal and rattan to organic textures like driftwood, leather, and polished stone. And we’re totally on board with this summer home decor trend!

Boho Chic


Bohemian or boho style, in all its forms, is a very strong trend for this summer (and all year long, really), thanks to its laid-back, textural approach to home decor and design.

Some of the main features of the boho chic style are Moroccan rugs, macrame wall hangings, woven light fixtures, and lots and lots of plants! Boho interiors can include comfortable cotton and linen furniture, neutral hues, chunky knit throw blankets, faded denim blues, leather accents, rustic wood furniture and beams, and abundant natural elements. Basically, anything that represents a relaxed way of living and decorating, which makes this interior design style perfect for summer!

Interesting fact – the boho style is inspired by people who lead unconventional lives, such as constant travellers, actors, and writers. The Bohemian style mirrors that lifestyle by combining objects, colours, and patterns from many areas of the world, making it a “free-spirited” way of designing a space.
