Summer is a favorite season of the year for most people, young and old. It is a time for being outside and enjoying the sun’s light, warmth and life. We usually like to take summer right inside our homes by adding some really beautiful colors and patterns for our seasonal design projects. Now there are many things you can do to do just that, but you have to know some essentials to guide you:
Here are a few pointers for creating the most amazing summer feels inside your home this year:
Light is the first thing you should bring inside your home if you’re looking to add a touch of summer. Because you can’t imitate sunlight, think of ways to let more light inside. You can probably have new windows installed or even skylights (if your space permits).
Summer is mainly about color and personality, and what better way to express your love for this season than by splashing your home with different sunny shades! Picture bright yellow, greens, oranges and the like – these are all typically related to summer. Also add bold prints and clashing colors – and don’t forget the flamingos and pineapples!
One of the most summery elements you can choose for your house this year – and every summer – is palm leaf print. Palm leaves are fantastic, especially the way it creates a stunning tropical feel to your home’s interior. They can really make you feel as though you idling time away on some island paradise. Hang a palm leaf garland as well, maybe bring out the cushions and have some attractive palm leaf fairy lights!
Light and Breezy
For the best summer feel, keep your home light and bright everyday of the year. You can get this result if you only use neutral shades everywhere and then simply accessorize with one bold color or two. To make your house feel larger and warmer, you can start by sticking to a clean and simple design.
Watercolor paintings are an effective way to enhancing your summer home design. Picture adorning your home with watercolor prints to match fit the varying themes of your rooms. In your kitchen, for example, you can take the outdoors inside by pairing greens with purples. Watercolor is so beautiful yet simple and perfect for summer feels, plus you can purchase it as wallpaper!
If you’re really keen on creating a summer feel to your home, add plants all over your house. Some good ones are deep green succulents and bright-hued flowers like flamingo flowers. Plants just make you feel like having nature itself as your home.
