As the old saying goes, home is truly where the heart is. In the autumn season, we bundle up in our homes and decorate the interior with warm colors. When December comes rolling in, we deck the halls for Christmas celebrations. Spring is the perfect time to consider cleaning and bringing out bright decor pieces. Finally, when summer approaches, it is time to bring a bit of sunshine inside and enjoy the fresh and happy decor. Vamping up a home's overall design can uplift anyone's mood in an instant. This is achieved by mixing and matching different fun colors, textures, and materials which will evoke feelings of positivity and happiness. If you are looking for creative ideas to decorate your home with style, then grab your latte or your cup of tea and read on!
Decorate with flowers
It is certain that there is something absolutely magical and refreshing about having a bunch of blooming flowers in your home which give off an irresistible fragrance. Also, live flowers are excellent to add a pop of color to any bleak area. Next time you are out shopping for decor items, try finding cute glass jars or sturdy containers instead of flower vases for a cheaper alternative. A fun summery idea is to collect some sea shells (or colorful pebbles from the beach) and decorate the jars with them before placing in the flowers. If you do not live close to a beach, then you can easily find similar decorative pieces online. However, we tend to travel a lot during the summer period, so sometimes it is better to opt for faux flowers.
Accessorize with cute pillows
One of the easiest and most versatile ways to spice up any boring bed or couch is by adding a throw pillow (or two). Not only can a new, fresh look be achieved in a matter of seconds, but you can easily switch up the design and style as you see fit. Firstly, shop online or find a store near you which sells cute custom made throw pillows, and then get down to business. Next, decide on what look you want to achieve. For example, if you are going for the chic look, then keep it simple and do not overdo it with the number of pillows. When it comes to the actual design of the decor item, stick to solid colors and simple patterns. On the flip side, if you want to achieve an eclectic look then go bold and let your imagination run loose! Fluffy pillows are one of the easiest ways to spice up your summer decor and add a hint of visual interest to any area of your home.
Energizing wall art
Do you have a blank wall in your home which desperately needs a bit of touching up? One of the cleverest ways to bring the essence of summer into your home is by investing in some amazing artwork. Look around decor shops and see whether you can get your hands on art in vibrant colors such as yellow or coral (these colors scream summertime on the beach). Or you can always choose to get crafty and make your own decor item which you will proudly hang on the walls. If you are feeling uninspired, check out Summer Scenes for stunning beach photos available in both glass prints and framed prints. Most importantly, you can bring the vibe of summer paradise right into your living area!
Ditch the heavy curtains
Most households still have the insulating and seemingly heavy curtains left from the winter days, so take this opportunity to switch things up for lighter and airier ones which will easily let in the summer sunshine. Keep in mind that ideally, you need to find curtains which let in the sun's warming rays, but which will also not make the room turn into a hot sauna. The bottom line is, look for curtains which will block out the sun when it gets too hot outside but which also have a sheer look. An alternative idea is to invest in some classic white blinds so you can easily control how much sun creeps into your room, whilst also adding a bit of a modern touch.
In sum, the summer days are slowly upon us which means it is time to start thinking about ways to spice up your home. From cute accessories to beach-inspired wall art, remember to step out of your comfort zone and let the sunshine in!
