2023 Interior Design Trends for Spring and Summer

Content Author

Say goodbye to minimalism. This year’s warmer months are all about opulence, with bold colours, shag rugs, scalloped headboards, and more! Let’s explore the top interior design trends for 2023 to help you create a relaxing and stylish space that reflects the changing seasons.


Bold coloured sofas


The sofas of today are loud and proud. We’re ditching the drag grey tones that have dominated living rooms for a welcome touch of colour. This spring and summer, except to see vibrant oranges, earthy greens, seductive reds and ocean blues. 

Time for a garden upgrade?

Read our guide to the season’s hottest and sustainable outdoor living trends here.

Cocoon - Ashley Corner Sofa Bed


or from £339.83 a month with DivideBuy*

Designed by experts, this sofa bed from our retailer, Cocoon is the perfect addition to a relaxing living room. It’s also a sofa bed – ideal for hosting (or lounging – we’re not judging). Added to a room with fresh white walls and neutral flooring means there’s plenty of breathing room to experiment with colours.


This versatile sofa comes in shades from navy blue to popcorn yellow. For a tropical vacation home effect (very hot right now), don’t forget to display greenery in areas of the room that seem empty.

Scalloped headboards


The tropics are in – and so are beachy bedrooms, which is why the simple scalloped headboard is currently making waves in the design world!


The scalloped design is a softer approach to a traditional aesthetic, adding character and an element of fun to any room. The shell-inspired edges can completely transform a space and give your room that summer feel.

Pascal Beds - New Dubai Palm Luxury Bed Frame

from £289*

or £24.10 a month with DivideBuy*

To achieve that summer feel, choose a headboard from a coastal colour palette. The plush cream option on this product from Pascal Beds, could make you feel like you’re lying on a sandy beach.


For other areas of the room, blues, greens, whites and natural tones add a nice touch (for example, in the bedding, walls and decorative items such as mirrors and rugs).

It’s not just about the bed…

Shag rugs


This year, organic designs are going to rule the roost! We’ll start to see natural fibre rugs, shag rugs, irregular shaped rugs and antique aesthetic rugs trending in the interior design world.


These are sure to bring a calming, relaxed vibe – just as long as you’ve got a good vacuum cleaner. 


AMC - Sierra 9000 Cream Rug

From £69.00*

or from £5.75 a month with DivideBuy*

Our merchant partner AMC Furniture has a range of rugs to match the newest spring and summer trends.


This cream shag rug is a delight underfoot, but it also makes a room look that much more luxurious for a small price.


These types of rugs have been a statement piece for a while – and there’s no sign of them dropping off the charts any time soon!

Bubble floor lamp


Never underestimate the power of a good lamp when it comes to enlivening spaces. In fact, the right lighting can make or break a room, so it’s important to get the style perfect.


Multiple clusters of globe shaped lights will be big this year, so hop on the trend early and accessorise your interior to your heart’s content. 

Tulip Interiors - Liang and Eimil Vanessa Floor Lamp

From £748.00*

or £62.33 a month with DivideBuy*

With this stylish floor lamp, you’ll never be in the dark about lighting trends! This globe shape has never gone out of style and is a contemporary statement for a modern home.


The spiralling floor lamp is made from opal glass and is finished in brass with a black marble base, adding a touch of luxe to your room.

Wooden dining table


The world has changed a lot in the past few years, with more people leaning towards sustainable sourced natural materials such as wood. It’s fair to say that timber is here to stay and can be incorporated into an area in many different ways.


The most obvious furniture being a dining table – though it could also be used for flooring, lighting, decor and more.

AMC - Sky Extending Dining Table

From £699*

or from £58.25 a month with DivideBuy*

This dining table will bring an earthy feel to any room, especially plain, white dining areas. Embracing daylight and cosy colours can also bring warmth and a sense of serenity to a space.


Pair this table with some contemporary sleek chairs and the room will be quickly transformed into a stylish area. If you’re looking to keep the vibe of your home aligned with summer, you could choose a lighter wood which will have the same effect but with an airier feel.

Whether you’re looking to update your living room, bedroom, or dining area, there’s a trend for everyone. 


Embrace bold colours, natural fibres, and sustainable materials to create a relaxing and stylish space that reflects the changing seasons. And with DivideBuy, you can make your dream home a reality in a convenient and cost-effective way.
