Summer is a beautiful season. It’s one of my favourite seasons of the year. The holidays, jolly sunshine, the cheery mood and friendly warmth always makes me happy. I guess the lovely season has prompted this Summer Decorating Tips post.
Simple interior decorating tips can bring in any season you desire into your home or your office. The trick is to add little reminders of the season. For this post, I am focusing on the current summer season.
Here are some summer decorating tips that you can start implementing right away –
Flowers or Floral print pillows
What if your home had blooming flowers all the time? Having real life flowers is always charming, and it is one of the best ways to ensure your home decor is seasonal. Another easy way to bring the summer into your home is to get floral print pillows.
Such pillows are excellent as summer decor as the warm colours of summer brings in this feel of summer. Get floral pillows that have a mix of orange, yellow and warm red. Such colours are excellent for depicting the summer vibe.
Bring in ‘em stripes
Aside from flowers and floral prints, stripes make a good pattern to decorate the house with. Striped throw pillows, striped table cloths and even striped wallpaper create a very lovely summer mood. Unlike floral prints, stripes are quite sober yet fun.
Remember to create some contrast. If you’re going to have striped wallpaper then you don’t have to cover all 4 walls. Stick to half or just one side.
Shaded string lights
Summer is a season of fun, warmth and family gatherings. Shaded string lights that are arranged in the garden or on the porch bring about a very playful feel. Everywhere is kept bright as the warm light from the shaded string lights line the sitting area outside. This inspires family dinners in the garden, where you’ll enjoy nature and the beauty of summer night.
The best way to go about this is using a string of shaded lights and arranging them along a porch or over the length of a shade where you know you can set a table where people can seat around for dinner. That creates the perfect ambience for the summer season.
Rearrange the room to focus on the windows
Here is my last summer decorating tip. Rearrange the room to focus on the windows if you can. This allows for more light to flow in.
