We know there’s still a while till summer comes around, but it’s never too early to plan ahead. If you’re someone who adores summer like we do, then it’s understandable you’d want to get a head start on summer decorating. That’s what we’re here for today. Let’s discuss ways you can make your home feel more summery and bright without having to completely redo the entire house. It’s simpler than you might think. Not to mention, you won’t have to shell out a lot of money or go out of your way to get these things done.
Brighten With White
Since it’s so hot out in the summer, we tend to gravitate towards brighter colors to keep us cool. From that logic, it makes sense why white is a popular color to use in the house in the summer. Aside from keeping cool, white brightens up any space very effectively, make it feel breezy and cool. Use white when decorating for the summer. From sheets to curtains and paint, using white will have a great effect. Doing so will invite as much light in the room as possible.
Use Citrus to Accessorize
It might seem simple, but using a bowl of citrus fruit to decorate a room will do wonders. It will brighten and freshen up any room, making it feel more summery and clean. Think of fruits like oranges, lemons, or limes.
Whether you get fresh flowers, add some prints, or use floral patterns, flowers are the perfect accessory for summer. They’ll make a room feel brighter and more cheerful. If you don’t want to overdo it, you can just get a bouquet to place on a table or one throw pillow with a floral print. No need to go all out to have the right effect.
Get The Linen Out
One great trick to use to freshen up a space for summer is by using white linen on everything. Doing this adds a casual elegance to a room while still making it feel lighter and more laid-back. You don’t need to go all-out with this either, a few well-placed airy linens in the kitchen and bathrooms will have a summery effect as well.
Switch Out The Curtains
Instead of dark and heavy curtains, go for sheer flowy white ones. They’ll have a wonderful effect on a room and make it feel brighter and cooler. Not to mention, they really will allow more airflow in the room rather and help cool it down.
Whether you have plants or not, summer is the perfect time to add some to your home. They don’t need to be real, either – fake or real, greenery livens up a room beautifully. If you already have plants, think of repotting them into seasonally appropriate pots.
Use Beachy Colors
To have a truly summery effect, use shades like white, cream, and pale blue to make a room feel like a tropical oasis. Think of switching up the covers of your throw pillows and adding appropriate accessories. Anything from prints to paint can make all the difference and turn your home into the perfect summer getaway.
