2023 Summer Design Trends

May 24, 2023
Published by

There’s something refreshing in decorating for the seasons. You don’t have to do a full makeover, but the addition of some new pieces, reflecting the season, keeps your homes in Puget Sound Washington feeling fresh and updated. It’s up to you how much you want to change decor each season, but here are a few ideas to get you inspired for the summer season.

If you’re currently building or planning to build your own home and want to start fresh with some of your furnishings, consider earthy neutrals that can serve as a backdrop to different colors for each season, making it more affordable to change out the decor according to the season. For summer, think of nature’s colors, especially beach-themed colors. Sand, sea, sun, and sky are a great way to bring summer into your home with a mix of dark and light blues, green, teal, pale yellows and the occasional pop of bright color for fun, such as bright hibiscus colors. With neutral furniture, you can bring these colors in with throw pillows, lightweight curtains, rugs, and other smaller decorative pieces.

When talking about indoor/outdoor living, the emphasis is often on making your outdoor living area as comfortable and stylish as your interior. However, there’s no reason you can’t bring some of the outdoors in, as well. Besides the colors, the easiest way to do so is to bring in nature itself with a mixture of greenery. From tall plants in stylish pots to smaller tabletop arrangements, adding plants like monsteras, ferns, and other lush greenery enhances the sense of summer gardens and tropical locales. Even if you have a black thumb, consider creating a collection of botanical prints and fabrics in floral or leafy patterns to bring the outdoors in.

Whether you’re decorating inside or out, don’t forget to use natural materials like linen, cotton, jute, rattan, and bamboo. From textiles to woven baskets to outdoor furniture, these materials showcase the beauty of and comfort of nature and its bounty.

Ultimately, think about how you envision summer and what those memories evoke. Rather than botanical prints, you could create a collection of framed photos from your own summer vacations or curate a collection of memorabilia for a tabletop display. Maybe seersucker is your summer fabric of choice. The point is to put your own personal touch into any room you decorate. This way your homes in Puget Sound Washington will always be uniquely yours.
