Summer is finally here and it's time to update your indoor and outdoor spaces. Here are the top interior design trends for summer 2021 that include bringing in some outdoor elements inside the home through biophilic design, museum-inspired pieces for the living room and sustainably made furniture.

Biophilic design is all about capturing the look and feel of nature that helps promote human health. As we approach a time where health is of greater focus than ever, it should come as no surprise that biophilic designs are in.

Look to the Vegas Modern 001 for inspiration when it comes to understanding the luxury biophilic design look. This 15,000 square foot shoe home just opened for tours so don’t miss out on the opportunity to be truly inspired by biophilic design.

Also representing this trend is the Shanghai project that will build the new China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group’s (CECEP’s) headquarters using biophilic interior design, according to Nia Groce’s article.

As the need for more eco-friendly approaches grows rapidly this summer, so does the trend of sustainable interior design. The ways in which you can help both the look of your home and the health of your planet are endless.

Now, more than ever, it is important to learn how can you protect your environment and more and more people are starting to see it.

This summer, hop on the trend of eco-friendly luxurious furniture that will redefine your home for the better. Discover eco-friendly glamorous furniture made with upcycled and organic furniture at Medley or eco-friendly, ethically sourced luxurious furniture from Paulette Cole’s company ABC Home who partners with a fair trade nonprofit called Label STEP.

Further, use your extra time this summer to give back to this planet and pick up a new hobby like horticulture! Horticulture takes us back to the 1970s in which a movement focused on giving back to nature sprouted.

Now, the trend is back and better than ever! Use greenery to simultaneously add a refreshing glow to your home while also adding more lovely plants to this beautiful planet. From beautifully potted plants to draping vinery, the options to add some green to your home are endless.

For the art connoisseur, this is the design trend for you.

Incorporating sleek sculptures and magnificent paintings into the design of your home adds a uniqueness that is impossible to replicate. Get lost in the sleek chiseled architecture or the distinctive paintings accentuating the walls.

This look is all about appreciating individuality. Since the summer is the time where many people find the time for self-exploration, it is no surprise that this particular trend is becoming popular.

Prepare to be inspired by the luxury home designed by James Aman and John Meeks that takes contemporary design to the next level.

Postmodern Statement Elements

The concept of postmodern art stems from the push towards pieces that contradict modernism and emphasizes the expression of the dawn of a new era.

This extends to sprightly designed furnishings today that are the perfect way to bring the vibrant art museum feel to your living room.
