Summer is here, and it is time for you to freshen up your home décor! Put away the wool pillows and fur throws. Get rid of the dull colors and bring in vibrant and brighter shades to honor the spirit of summer.
Here is a mini guide for you if you are thinking to update your home décor this summer.
1. Bring In Light Textures
Instead of the flannel sheets, go for cool, high-thread-count cotton sheets. Change your winter comforters and unpack those bed throws and summer comforters. Pillow covers with floral prints will look cool on the couches and beds. Instead of thick curtains, go for light-colored sheers.
2. Redecorate Your Kitchen
Your kitchen is as essential as any other room in the house. Lemons have something about them that makes you instantly feel fresh. Take a tall glass vase, or a large white bowl, and fill it will lemons. These lemons will bring instant style into your kitchen for spring.
Place multiple pots of yellow daffodils on your kitchen counters. If you want to bring in a little texture, a rug is a perfect accessory. You can use such area rugs in your kitchen to distinctively separate two connected spaces (like the eating area and the cooking area). There is a variety of beautiful overdyed rugs that are easily available online, you can check them out.
3. Change Your Furniture
If your house has dark colored furniture, maybe consider switching it up lighter, spring-colored wicker replacement. Wicker, or garden-inspired furniture, can bring in a kind of warmth in your house. You can buy them cheap at thrift stores so that when you are tired of them, you can replace them.
4. Add Tropical Elements
Is there a better way to celebrate summer than bringing in nature? Summer is all about getting out and enjoying the breeze. This means that your rooms have to be airy and bright.
To bring in the tropical elements, you can buy indoor plants or have pillow covers printed in lush green colors. For me, indoor plants are a must-have because they can purify the air and freshen up your space. Summer is a great time to take your empty mason jars and put them to use. You can use them as vases, planters and more all around the house.
5. Paint an Accent Wall
Since it is the beginning of a new season, it is befitting that you repaint your walls as well. Choose bright and happy colors since you can now open your windows and let the air in. Choose a high-contrast color to paint an accent wall. The brighter the color is, the better it will look. For example, a bright coral color on an accent wall will look amazing, and it will transform the look of your entire room!
Adding a pop of color in your home or redecorating your home does not mean you must have a big budget. You can easily freshen up your home décor with these easy tips! Happy Decorating!
