Spring is in full bloom, but some of us are already prepping for Summer! With just a month or so left till school is out, is your home ready for Summer?
It takes a lot more than just opening your blinds to bring Summer into your home, unfortunately. No matter your home, big or small, there are plenty of ways to bring the feeling of warmth and bliss into your home and kitchen.
The nice thing about summer decor is that it can be colorful and daring. Use the fun colors and patterns that remind you of your dream vacation! There is no need to go ‘all out’ by painting your walls some bright color. Accessories are your best friend, no matter the season. While Spring is about pinks and pastels, Summer is about bold and bright. Add a few bright accessories in your glass front cabinets or plop that color right on your counter!
Bring on the plants
House plants have seemed to be somewhat of a trend in recent years. Decorative plants are great and bring a lot of life into the home, but functional plants are exciting as well! Aloe Vera and herbs are great for uses around the house! Spider plants are beautiful little palms, easy to care for, and are great at cleaning the air! You don’t need an outdoor space to grow these either! If you don’t have a windowsill that is adequate for planting, check out this DIY Mobile Garden Container. Plants add a sense of life to a home and definitely brighten the mood!
Bring in natural materials
When decorating, think “beach house”. No need to add the shells and starfish decor (Unless you want to!). Wicker, wood grain, and terracotta are all wonderful materials to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living.
Make it light and airy
Time to get rid of all the winter materials. Integrate light and airy fabrics into your home’s design. This will give the space a light and airy feel, while keeping the space much cooler. If your home is filled with dark rugs and drapes, swap them out for the summer months. This will let more light in and keep your space feeling happy and free.
