Your guide to this summer’s interior design trends | Community

As we head into the vibrant days of summer 2024, interior design trends are evolving to reflect our growing focus on sustainability, comfort, and personal expression. Some trends are here to stay, while others are making their graceful exit. Here is a comprehensive look at what is in and what is out in interior design for this summer.

What’s in:

Sustainable and Eco-friendly design: Sustainability remains at the forefront of modern interior design. Homeowners are seeking eco-friendly materials and energy-sufficient solutions. Recycled and upcycled materials, sustainable woods, and organic textiles are a more popular choice. Greenery will continue to thrive with indoor plants that connect nature, while improving indoor air quality.

Bold and vibrant color: White walls will be outdated. Bold colors are here to stay. The summer palettes will see vivid blues, rich greens, sunny yellows, and deep oranges. These hues will add energy and personality to a space. Though the colors are vibrant, they are often paired with neutral tones to bring harmony. Bold accent pieces like statement furniture and colorful artwork will be around for a long time.

Organic shapes and curves: Furniture with rounded edges is staying strong. These provide a softer, more inviting feel compared to sharp angular pieces. The curvy furniture creates flow and movement that enhances the overall comfort and aesthetics of the space.

Nature inspired Elements: Designs inspired by nature continue to grow in popularity. Many textiles like rattan, jute, and bamboo are used in furniture and décor. Fluted designs are becoming bolder. You can find them on furniture, accent decor, and walls which adds visual interest to any space.

Outdoor living spaces: There is a growing trend to bring the outdoors in and this is 

something that we will see this summer and beyond. Patios, balconies, and gardens are being designed to extend into the indoor areas. A lot of covered porches are now being opened to the outdoors with weather resistant furniture and décor to top it off. This integration brings a lifestyle that embraces nature and outdoor activities.

What’s Out:

Industrial Aesthetics: Some designers say Industrial design is going out of style, while others say it will be trendy and promising for 2024. Exposed bricks, metal beams, and concrete flooring are slowly fading. While it can still be stylish when placed sparingly, the trend is shifting to warmer, more inviting interiors that give comfort and coziness over a raw cold aesthetic.

All-White Interiors: Say goodbye to all white interior in 2024. More dynamic and colorful

designs are replacing this minimalist look. While Minimalist is not completely out, it is evolving to incorporate more textures, patterns, and colors. This shift reflects a desire for places to feel lived-in and personal rather than sterile.

Fast Furniture: Disposable, fast furniture that is poorly made and quicky discarded is falling out of flavor. Homeowners appreciate well-crafted, durable pieces that can withstand the test of time.

Matching furniture sets: Matching furniture sets are outdated. The era of perfectly matching sets is over, while contemporary design favors eclecticism and individuality. This allows homeowners to highlight their unique taste and create a home that truly feels like their own.

High-gloss furniture. Some designers still prefer high gloss furniture, while other designers are leaning towards matte and neutrals. High gloss finishes on cabinets, furniture, and décor are being replaced by matte and natural finishes. These softer finishes add warmth and a more organic feel to interiors that align with nature-inspired and sustainable design elements.

In closing, the interior design trends for Summer 2024 reflect a blend of sustainability, bold self- expression, and a deep connection to nature. As we bid farewell to white interiors and matching furniture, we welcome vibrant colors, natural elements, and personalized spaces. 

Our homes will now become an expression of ourselves and not just a place to live. Whether you are updating your current décor or starting fresh, these trends offer inspiration for creating beautiful, sustainable, and welcoming homes this summer.
