The changing of seasons can create great opportunities to transform areas in your home. Just as you decorate or adjust for the cold weather and Holiday season, you deserve a refresh for summer! Here’s a look at the hottest 2023 home trends to try this summer season.
Paper lanterns and fabric light shades are making a comeback. Unlike glass or ceramic lighting, paper and fabric diffuse light for a warm, soft glow. The arrival of summer means more hours of daylight. These lighting styles lend themselves beautifully to helping your rooms transition from day into night. They’re perfect for mimicking summer sunsets as you relax into cool escapes from the balmy night.
The newest color schemes for summer are reminiscent of sunny days and beach vacations. Coastal blues, earth tones, pinks, and pastels are the “in” colors of this year. Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year, Viva Magenta, is a vibrant red-leaning pink that perfectly balances warm and cool toned colors.
Earth tones naturally lend themselves to associations with nature and offer calming effects to the mind after a long day. They also lend themselves to easily be incorporated into classic costal summer styles with natural elements.
With sustainable and green practices entering mainstream designs nation-wide, it’s no surprise interior design experts are just as obsessed! Sustainable wood, wicker, and bamboo are increasingly popular as furniture for both indoor and outdoor use. Bamboo has always been favored in the Eastern cultures for its versatility, durability, and light weight.
A monochromatic color scheme uses one hue throughout multiple elements in a space, such as the same wall color as the décor and textiles in a sleeping area. You can elevate this idea further by incorporating other monochromatic accents in a complimentary hue. Even if using muted or pastel hues, monochromatic rooms always stand out as bold additions.
During the past several years during the pandemic, contemporary paintings and gallery walls were the “it” décor for homes. Thoughtful inclusions of sculptures and tapestries are breaking ground this year instead. Both of these decorating elements provide interesting texture and movement throughout your space.
