6 Summer Interior Design Trends for 2021

If your home feels like it needs a refresh, you might be interested in design trends for summer 2021. The year 2020 was nothing to celebrate, so 2021 might have you feeling like your home needs a cheerful update.

We spent a lot more time at home than usual last year due to the Coronavirus pandemic and it might’ve had you taking inventory of things you want to change in your home. If a home remodel is too large of a project right now, spruce up your home with these summer interior design trends in 2021.

Some are tried and true trends that will never go out of style, and some are trends that are new to this year. Either way, mixing your home with trendy and timeless pieces is a nice way to keep current while staying true to the fundamentals of interior design.


The color Classic Blue was the Pantone color of the year in 2020, so it’s a hot commodity in the interior design world. We expect to see more blue walls, furniture, art and decorative pieces in the summer of 2021.


Decorating your space with potted plants gives it a calm and natural look, by essentially bringing the outdoors in. Plants not only look good in your home, but they also provide health benefits such as improving your mood and purifying the air.

Function vs. Formal

Gone are the days of formal living rooms and closed off floor plans. Today’s interior design aesthetic is to live in as functional as a home as possible. The idea is to use all the livable square footage in your home for what you need it for instead of only what looks good – whether that’s a home office, playroom, craft room or a gym.

Natural Textures/Colors

Natural design elements like wood, earthy tones and rattan light fixtures and baskets are a big interior design trend for 2021. In addition to natural textures and colors, homeowners are opting for more sustainable materials for their home.


Wallpaper has made a comeback in recent years and it looks like it’s continuing to be a trend for summer of 2021. Wallpaper is great for powder rooms, as well as an accent wall in a print that complements the space.

Let There Be Light

Natural light is a tried and true design trend that isn’t going anywhere. Let in the sunlight by any means necessary, whether that means ditching your curtains and blinds altogether. While we spend more time at home, letting the light inside is more important than ever.
