You may be ready for those hot summer nights, but is your house? It can be overwhelming to think about getting your home ready for summer, but you’d be surprised by how just a few minor changes can have a big impact on your home. Whether you’re relaxing with family or celebrating with friends, creating a fun and inviting space in your home is a must for summer entertaining.
This season is all about bold, bright, and trendy colors and patterns layered with all sorts of textures.
No clue where to start? Don’t worry! We’ve rounded up our top seven tips and tricks to get your home summer-ready.
Kick things up a notch by adding some fun patterns to your home decor. Pick a theme like Aztec or tribal, or mix things up and mix-and-match your patterns. Polka dots and stripes, anyone?
Patterns are a great way to add some texture and depth to your color scheme without overwhelming the space. Add in some fun throw pillows, put out some new linens, or switch up your curtains. No matter what you decide to do, patterns are an easy way to change the look of an entire room without the added cost of hiring a decorator.
Rich, dark colors may be king during the winter months, but whites and creams are perfect for some summer lovin’. A bright backdrop for fun summer colors or the perfect hue for a monochromatic look, whites and creams open up a space and give things an open and lively look for the warmer months.
Switching out an area rug is a great way to change the look of a room without a complete overhaul. Go with a bright and bold pattern to keep things fun, or a solid color to add a pop of color to the space.
Add a Focal Point
Adding an eye-catching focal point is a great way to change things up for the summer months. You don’t need to do a complete redecoration; little changes can make a big impact on a space
Put up a new painting, hang a bold chandelier or throw in a statement furniture piece like our Cerulean Sofa and Chair set!
Switch it Up
Don’t be afraid to try a new layout for your space. You don’t need to go full feng shui, but moving just a few things around can give a room a whole new feel without having to spend a dime.
Try moving your couch to the other side of the room, or rotate the room layout. You might be surprised at how much you love the new layout.
Painting a statement wall (or an entire room) can be an easy and cost-effective way to change things up for summer. Choose a color that can transition well through all the seasons, or change it up as much as you like!
For a really bold look, choose a new hue for your ceiling for an unexpected pop of color.
Nothing says summer like bold bouquets of flowers. Great for filling in sparse corners and perfect for adding some color to accent tables, plants are an easy way to create your own little oasis, no matter where you live.
Potted or fresh cut, don’t be afraid to bring a bit of the outdoors inside. Cacti are also a great way to add some summer vibes to your space, but be sure to keep them in spots where they won’t easily be bumped into.
