Don’t see your home as just another house. Think of it as a summer rental, a space where you’d love to be when you go on holiday. Open doors raise the blinds and let in natural sunlight. Get rid of pieces that are dark and gloomy. Put up a portrait of a beautiful, bright sunflower. It is summer after all and this is what you can do to spice and cool up your humble abode.
It starts with the thinking
Summer time décor is filled with bright colours, flowers and an arrangement of smiles everywhere. There is something about summer that puts a spring in your step. Have this in mind as you go about in search of items to put in your home. There is a feeling of pure bliss when the sun radiating in your surroundings. Stow away heavy accessories, throws, and unnecessary small decor items until it’s time to cosy up for the autumn season. But until then, keep the summer fling in mind and the bliss that joins it.
Whether you change your duvet covers or any other fabrics in your home, it needs to be a colour that instantly lifts the mood of the room. Floral is one way to enhance the summer buzz, but if you are going to paint, then keep the colour neutral and other accessories to a minimum. Summer decor or bedding should be kept light and flirtatious. There is one way to spruce up home bedroom colour and that is with a light touch.
Put attention to detail
Draw attention away from the fire place this time of the year. They might be a great focal point but it’s not winter so what is the point? Detail is very important as it makes the picture of your home come to life in a greater way than before. Change little bits and pieces if you want to keep the change minor, but make that change in anycase. Shift the focus of the room toward a beautiful window or French doors. Put away those heavy drapes and hang up gossamer sheers that flow with the breezes.
Go leafy green
Plants signify life, and what better way to bring life back into your home. Put big pot plants on your patio or your windowsill. The greenery shrubs and leaves will add definition and character, with added texture to your surroundings, as the different exposures unite together as one. If you are the type that forgets to water plants then choose cacti to surround your home. It will be awful if after a few months your plants start to wilt.
