Summer’s here and it’s the perfect time to bring that sunshine in and give your home a refresh. Whether you’re aiming for a whole new look, trying to spruce up your decor, or want to make your space cozier, there are plenty of simple touches that you can do to bring in the summer vibes to your home.
Get the inspiration rolling with these ideas.
Add pops of color
If you’re looking to instantly add some cheer to your home, change out darker decorations for brighter, more vibrant hues. Think yellows, corals, and turquoises for curtains, pillows, rugs, and table runners. And don’t forget to add some fresh flowers and candles for an even bigger splash of color!
Bring the outdoors in
Incorporate natural materials that make you think of summer, such as bamboo, jute, and rattan. A wicker chair, jute place-mats and table runners, a rattan side table, or woven baskets add depth and warmth to the room without compromising the simplicity of a summer ambiance.
Brighten things up
To capture the feel of summer, trade out darker decorations for brighter, more vibrant tones. You can also change your light bulbs to warm yellow or orange hues to bring out the summer feeling. And if your home has a balcony, lanai, or a patio don’t forget to add some string lights into these spaces for that perfect summer glow.
Go with greenery and beautiful blooms
Get inspired by nature and bring some pretty flowers, potted plants, and succulents into your house! Not only will they look and smell nice, they help create a serene and calming atmosphere. Research has proven that having plants and nature around us can have a beneficial effect on our well being. So, why not give it a try?
Infuse the magic of tropical touches
Summer’s all about taking a break and finding some tropical vibes. To get that beach-paradise feel, you can add some lush indoor plants like monstera and fiddle-leaf figs – these will instantly bring the tropics to you. You can also add decor items with tropical touches like pineapple-shaped lamp bases or trays or throw pillows with palm tree prints. And don’t forget to bring in the sweet scents of the tropics with coconut, mango, and citrus-scented candles or diffusers.
Adding a few summer-like touches to your house is super easy and fun. Just a few changes and you’ll have a summery atmosphere inside. Now it’s time to chill, relax, and enjoy the season we all love, all from the coziness of your own home.
