How to embrace Summer vibes in your interior decor
As the days become longer and the sun shines brighter, it's time to infuse your living spaces with the cool essence of summer. The most effective way to create a dynamic and energetic atmosphere that complements the easygoing spirit of the season is to embrace summer influences in your decor. Here are four, simple but impactful ways to easily transform your home into a summer haven.
The foundation of summer decor is to create a room that is light and airy. Open the curtains to let in natural light, which will instantly brighten the space. To maintain privacy while still allowing a mild breeze to pass through, choose sheer or lightweight curtains. Select furnishings and fabrics in light colours to reflect the sunlight, which will help to create the impression of space. Mirrors should be strategically incorporated in order to boost the amount of natural light by reflecting it around the space and giving it a sense of depth.
Incorporating natural components into your interior design can help you feel more connected to the environment. Bring potted plants or fresh flowers into your home in order to add colour and natural beauty. To create a seaside atmosphere, arrange seashells, coral, or driftwood as centrepieces or on shelves. Include natural materials in your furniture or accessories, such as rattan, jute, or wicker, to create an organic and welcoming feel. To add a hint of botanical charm, think about purchasing artwork or posters with a botanical theme.
Inject Colour and Patterns
If your interior colour scheme is looking a little tired, then it's time to revitalise it because summer brings to mind a kaleidoscope of brilliant hues. Add splashes of vibrant, upbeat colours like lemon yellow, coral, turquoise, or tropical greens. Try out dramatic patterns in your curtains, rugs, or throw cushions by combining floral, nautical, or geometric motifs. Don't be afraid to mix and match patterns to give the space a whimsical touch and create a vibrant, upbeat mood.
Summertime is all about relaxing and taking it easy. Create areas where you can unwind and enjoy the summer atmosphere. Set up cosy seating areas with luxurious throws and cushions in tropical designs on your patio, balcony, or terrace. Create comfortable reading nooks with extra-large chairs or hammocks that are furnished with soft, lightweight blankets. For optimal relaxation, invest in scented candles or diffusers that emit energising citrus or floral scents.
