Interior Trends | Summer 2023

The BDA team, made up of trend forecasters and commercial strategists, has rounded up the key interior and homeware trends for Summer 2023 to help you reshape your space. Consumers are increasingly seeking out pieces that will stand the test of time, without neglecting comfort. The hybrid work-from-home transition is provoking a move toward pieces that can transform seamlessly to suit different working, learning, relaxing, exercising and entertaining needs.

Crafts and outdoor activities continue to offer escapism from online living. Outdoors spaces are key to this shift, with greater value placed on gardens and personal outside spaces, whether for tending to plants or simply relaxing in nature. Gardens are no longer simply an extension of the home, but a key element of it. Designs that merge the digital and physical worlds also offer a contrasting approach to escapism.


Easy Living

Ease & Versatility | Organic Comfort | Homebody Mentality | Simplification

Minimalism is evolving, moving away from stark lines and cold textures. Organic curves, softened colours and modular pieces are key, supporting hybrid lifestyles. A sense of comfort pervades this uncluttered approach to interior design and homeware.

Curved lines, mixed wooden finishes and a palette of varied neutrals are punctuated by softened brights. Warm and welcoming, a minimalist aesthetic with an element of playfulness.

Dreamlike | Synthetic | Virtual in Reality

Dreamlike interiors come to life as virtual renderings are realised in physical forms. A soothing but energetic palette of crisp pastels is enriched with saturated jewel tones that come through in tonally textured prints.
