Get your house summer ready with these quick and easy design tips!
Play with Color!
Play with color as you update your home. Have fun with it! But also make sure you don’t over do it. A good rule to keep to is to mix and match three bright colors to give your home an update. The colors can be a mix of both vibrant and muted. Just make sure they are complimentary to each other and don’t feel overwhelming. One idea is to take these colors and buy your accents with them included, such as vases, espresso cups and pillows!
Make it Bright
Just add flowers! Summer arrangements should look casual and organically put together. So if this is your first time, relax and know you can’t really go wrong here! Just start placing them in the ways that feel simple and best!
Want an edible alternative? Fill a white bowl with either lemons or Granny Smith apples and petals, as a centerpiece. Nothing says summer quite like a pop of floral and fruity colors!
Love the Light
During the summer, the sun rises earlier and sets later, and all that extra light can lift one’s spirits and set the mood for summer. One of the best ways to enhance the natural lighting in a room is to add mirrors to your decor. Place a floor mirror in a dark corner of a room to brighten your space from the ground up, or hang a mirror on the wall to allow sunlight to bounce off it and onto the other walls of the room.
Keep it Simple
Summer is actually the time to reduce your decorative footprint. It’s an airy, breezy time and you want your decor to reflect that. Trinkets and small decorative pieces are great, but can really feel cluttering in the summer. Consider storing a few of these items away for the season. Another way to add minimalist freshness is to remove cases from accent pillows and reveal their white casings. Increasing the presence of white in your decor allows you to keep the stuff but without feeling overwhelmed by it. If you’d like to keep them covered, consider a fitted white cotton or lace crochet case!
You are going to feel wonderful and relaxed in your home this summer using these simple ideas. Think about what you’ve read, look around and see what you can do. You may already have what you need at home. If not, you can take a quick, affordable trip to the store and grab a few simple staple items.
Enjoy the season upon you and relax. Unwind. Enjoy!
