Summer 2023 Home Trends - what's in, what's out?

Summer 2023 Home Trends - what's in, what's out?

Building upon last year's trends of infusing nature into our spaces, the use of natural elements and sustainable choices continues to grow in popularity. And one thing is for certain—the era of plain white walls is gone. Let's check out what's in and what's out for home décor trends for summer 2023.

What's in?

Let there be colour

From rich jewel tones to soft pastels, colour is back in a big way! White walls and beige curtains aren't going to cut it anymore - we're seeing a lot more pink and blue, green and yellow, or rust and green combinations for bright spaces that feel more alive.

Old world retreat

With fewer trips abroad in the last few years, people are starved for that old-world, European villa charm and it's starting to appeal in peoples' homes more and more. Bright, light, natural wood, breezy linens and stone or clay touches bring this look to life. Think vintage items that are a little rough around the edges - it just adds to the charm.

Personal touches

Instead of looking for ways to imitate the home decor Instagram pages, this year will be more about embracing personal idiosyncrasies. Those antique finds that just call to you, old memorabilia you love, mementoes from family trips - it's all part of the unique fabric of your home. Embrace it this year and proudly display the quirky bits of life.

Low-impact choices

Upcycling and low-impact choices are still on the rise this year with more attention being paid to sustainable options. Materials from recycled plastic bottles, long-lasting stone, and wood instead of single-use plastics, and reupholstered furniture are popular ways to lessen your impact without sacrificing style.

What's out?

Boring neutrals

Don't get us wrong, there will always be a time and a place for neutrals - they can be very calming and visually appealing. But white walls and neutral curtains and furnishings as the default choice are starting to disappear, replaced by more exciting colour palettes and brighter tones.

Smooth minimalism

Glossy, smooth finishes have been a mainstay in the popular minimalist trend over the last several years but more recently it's all about the textures. The shift away from minimalism has been coming for a while with a bigger focus on bold patterns and plenty of nick knacks. We think this year will be all about textures.

50 shades of grey

Cool greys have been a neutral choice for many in the past years but be warned - they are starting to date. If you want to stick to neutrals, try warmer whites, beiges, terracotta, greens, etc. If you want to stay on the cool spectrum, opt for light blues, teal etc.

"highly recommend bargain blinds"

I highly recommend bargain blinds, we kitted out the garage and sleepout with Venetians and our lounge/dining with Blockout Blinds, very happy with the service and quality of the product.


"Exactly what we wanted"

Just wanted to say a huge thank you, we are very impressed with your service and the blinds are perfect, exactly what we wanted. Install took about 15 minutes too, so considering that was the only thing we were gaining by going with the other company I am extremely happy I came across you guys!


They are amazing

My blinds arrived and they are amazing. I am so happy with them and the colour I chose is just perfect. Thanks for such a great job and speedy delivery.
