Between Halloween pumpkins, autumn wreaths, and seasonal decorations, finding the best home decor in fall and winter is a breeze. However, you can only look at so many red, white, and blue streamers after Independence Day before you’re ready for something new, so how do you spruce up your interior decor during the summer? Lighten and brighten your home with these summer decor tips!
Add some summery pops of color.
Take advantage of summer’s natural gifts like vibrant fruits and fresh flowers to brighten up your home. They’re affordable, eco-friendly, and add a fresh fragrance to your home. You can also swap out artwork or photos to highlight the brighter colors of summer in your home.
- - New artwork
- Bright towels, throw pillows, and other linens
- Flower vases and fruit baskets
Lighten up your linens.
From bedding to curtains, summer calls for lighter, flowy fabrics. While heavy bedding and thick, dark curtains keep us cozy in the winter, they look and feel drab and out of place during long summer days and nights. Swapping out dark curtains for something light and airy and replacing bedding with lighter sheets and a bright comforter not only looks beautiful, but also helps you stay comfortable.
Have a fireplace? Get creative!
Just because you don’t want to burn a fire when it’s hot and humid outside doesn’t mean your fireplace has to sit cold and barren for half the year. Use your empty fireplace to add a fresh design element to the room. Here’s some fireplace decor inspiration to try this summer:
- - Arrange candles of different shapes and sizes
- Use it to house a large plant (or several small ones)
- Place a piece of artwork inside the fireplace or lean a large frame over the opening!
Decorating your home to fit the seasons throughout the year keeps your home feeling fresh and comfortable year round. Even small changes like rugs and throw pillows can have a big impact on your style.
The best part? If you get bored, decor is easy to change! Play with different ideas and make them your own! It’s your home, and all that matters is that it suits your style, wants, and needs. If you do plan on selling sometimes soon, keep in mind that style could affect your home’s resale value before making any major changes!
