Summer Decorating Tips

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.

Game of Thrones is Back

Game of Thrones is Back on TV screens, and we have been watching. This very popular TV series has succeeded in keeping us on the edge of our seats, season after season. What I love most about this drama series is the instrumental soundtrack. I could listen to it all day if possible. I think Ramin Djawadi did an excellent work on it.

The first episode of Game of Thrones Season 7 aired in the UK on Sky Atlantic and NowTV on Monday 17th July. It aired earlier in the US, on n Sunday 16th July, and all of social media has been talking about it. Which is spoilers for anyone who hasn’t started watching the new season, so I won’t drop any spoilers here.

When it comes to TV series, I always need a refresher when the new season starts. It is usually a year in between for most seasons, so a quick refresher is usually needed. If you are like me you, then you will love these bingo cards created by Bingo.paddypower.com. Using the cards you can re-watch all the old episodes and enjoy some of your favourite scenes and plot lines.

This Bingo card game is great for Game of Thrones fans and general card lovers. I know this card game would definitely keep me busy. Being able to play catch up on all 7 seasons of GoT, with this card game sounds amazing. The fact that I can re-watch all the old episodes and get to see some favourite scenes and plot lines is so cool.

What are your thoughts on this Bingo Card game? Are you a fan of Game of Thrones? Please share your views in the comments section below. Also, please remember to share this post on social media so fellow GoT fans are aware.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day.

Interior Design – How to Create a Stylish Games Room Without Compromising Space

When it comes to interior design, having a dedicated games room in your home may seem like an impossible prospect. For starters, your house might not have the space available to justify devoting an entire room to leisure alone. You could also be unsure as to what such a room would require. Especially if you have never undertaken a home improvement project like this before. Thankfully, there are ways around these issues. As well as a host of advantages to having your own games room.

When it comes to Interior Design, the little things matter. For example, a pool dining table could be just the centrepiece you need to make this proposal possible. A convertible table that can switch between pool and dining functions? These transformative pieces of furniture are designed to make the most of your space in a stylish, practical manner.
