Summer is a season that brings the warm weather and brightens the look of everything, a season that gets you in the mood to accept more textural offerings. It is easy to update your wardrobe for summer, but how can you bring the free and easy spirit of summer into your home?
From cooling interior colour palettes to opting for casual interiors over the formal ones, the tricks and ideas for putting together a beautiful space is not a hard-hitting job. The summer decor is all about finding the right balance between enjoyment, comforting, and liveable interiors. Hence, a brilliantly decorated interior not only functions well but it creates a mood and shows off the personality of the family that lives there. So, try these easy decor ideas to take advantage of all that the season has to offer and give a fresh touch to your interiors.
Set a theme
Analyse an inspirational piece and develop a theme on it. Choose your colour family, identify the major pieces, recover, repaint, and coordinate all the elements.
Accessorise: Think out of the box
Pictures, vases, cushions and area rugs are all integral parts of a great decorating plan. Generally, they should support the theme you have decided, but allow more flexibility here; an antique picture frame could add wonderful variety to a contemporary room. So, think out of the box and do something interesting.
Determine whether the furniture satisfies the functions you have planned for the room. If a piece isn't working or if it is too large or too small for the size of the room, get rid of it or trade it for something else around the house that may be more appropriate.
Focus on the focal point
Sometimes rooms have natural focal points, the places our eyes travel immediately upon entering a room, like a bay window with a view or maybe a built-in bookcase. So, if your room doesn't have one, create one with a dynamic piece of art.
Add natural textures
The season of summer screams for light and airy colours. Use removable slipcovers, or decorative throws to bring bursts of colour and brightness.
The change in seasons is the perfect time to rid your home of any unnecessary mess. Letting go of excess stuff is a great way to bring a more relaxed feeling to your home.
