Summer 2024 Interior Design Trends

Summer 2024 Interior Design Trends

As the weather gets warmer and the evenings get longer, you might be thinking about altering your home interior ready for summer. When we think of summer interior design, we want to reflect the sun into our homes, connect to the outdoors and perhaps even prepare for hosting summer dinner parties.

In this blog, we’ll take you through our favourite summer 2024 interior design trends to help you get your home ready for the warmer months.

Utilising Natural Light

After the long, cold winter we had, it’s not surprising that we want to make the most of the sunnier weather. We can utilise the natural light and bring the sun into our homes in many ways.

In 2024 interior design trends, we are already seeing the use of sheer and lightweight curtains. Sheer curtains allow the sunlight to shine through whilst still providing a level of privacy. This trend is easily personalised, choose from sheer patterned or coloured curtains for a more eccentric look or opt for more plain, light-coloured curtains for a more subtle effect. Either of these options will be effective in adding a light and airy effect to your home, perfect for the summer sun!

Another simple way to increase natural light in your home is to place mirrors near windows strategically. By reflecting the sunlight from a window into the room, you create the effect of a bigger and brighter space. You can choose the size and style of your mirrors to suit the available space. A minimalistic and large mirror would suit a more contemporary space, whereas a more vintage-inspired room would suit decorative, framed mirrors.

Connecting to the Outdoors

Summer 2024 is all about connecting to nature and appreciating the outdoors. If you have a living space that leads to an outdoor garden, you might want to maximise this space ready for summer evenings. You can introduce furniture that can transition from indoor to outdoor use, such as modular sofas, extendable tables and weather-proof decor. By incorporating adaptable furniture you can create a cohesive indoor and outdoor space without sacrificing your aesthetic or comfort.

If you don’t have this kind of open space, don’t worry, you can still find ways to connect to the outdoors. By incorporating plants and natural elements into your interior or even just by using earthy green and brown tones, you can create a sense of the outdoors in your home.

Minimalism with Style

Minimalism has perhaps been one of the biggest recent design trends and it’s not going anywhere in summer 2024. However, minimalism doesn’t have to be boring or lacking in style, as some people might assume. You can focus on simplicity and clean lines but still incorporate statement pieces and bold accessories to add personality. For example opt for clean geometric shapes, metallic accents or textured materials to add a level of interest to your minimalistic space.

Refresh with Enveloping Pastels

If you’re thinking of completely redecorating for summer 2024, then you might want to think about trending colour schemes. This year we are focusing on more playful pastel colours with mood-boosting properties. Sage green, pastel pinks and pale blues all provide a joyful atmosphere whilst not being too overwhelming – perfect for summer! The soft enveloping technique is one of the biggest trends for summer 2024 – it involves painting from ceiling to skirting boards to completely cover one wall or all walls of a room. It may sound daunting but it can create a calming and cohesive backdrop for a summery interior, especially when using a pastel colour.
