After a long, cold winter and a chilly spring, summer finally gives you the chance to get outside and enjoy some sunshine. But you don’t have to spend all your time outdoors to enjoy the lighter, brighter days of summer. Just as you switch your clothes to a summer wardrobe, you can change your home’s interior to suit the carefree, sunny days of summer.
Here are some summer decorating ideas that will help make your home instantly look and feel lighter and brighter.
Start with Your Walls
One of the simplest ways to bring all the freshness of summer indoors is with a fresh coat of paint. Painting allows you to lighten up a room for spring and summer with bright greens and yellows, or perhaps a pleasing pastel. If you don’t want the hassle of repainting an entire room, then use light, summery paint to cover just one wall or even a few small décor items.
Embrace the Accents
You don’t have to completely renovate your rooms, but you can reinvent them with the right accent pieces. Swap out those darker winter throw pillows and table linens with some summer-friendly colors. Experiment beyond fabrics with natural materials like sisal, jute, and seagrass.
Make it Pop
Small pops of color can have a big impact in any room. There are many ways you can bring just a touch of brightness to every room in the house. Experiment with fresh, colourful flowers in the dining room, brightly coloured serving dishes in the kitchen, or vibrantly coloured soaps in the bathroom.
Create a Theme
It’s summer, so why not pick a summer decorating theme that you will enjoy. Give your home a beachfront feel with accents like white linen curtains, throw pillows with tropical prints, or vases with seashells. Bathrooms are a great place to incorporate summer décor. You can add shower curtains and towels with pineapples or palm trees to give you that tropical theme.
Take It Outside
Summertime is when you want to spend as much time as possible outdoors, whether it’s just you and your family or a weekend party with friends. Set the scene for summer by breaking out the bamboo torches, paper lanterns, and string lights.
Bring the Outside In
Plants are an easy and natural way to bring a little bit of summer to your home. Plants are versatile and work in all styles, so you can never go wrong with a little touch of green.
