Summer home decor is all about shaking off the winter blues and letting in that sunshine. While you don’t need to undergo a whole decorative overhaul each season, a few tweaks and accent pieces can help brighten up your space. Here are some tips to help you brighten up your home this summer.
Bright and Bold
The key to a good summer decor is to focus on bright colors and bold patterns. Swap out your winter pillows and throws with lighter and brighter textiles. Pick out a color scheme, like teal and yellow for example, and stick with it throughout the house. That way, as you shop, you can make sure all your accent pieces match.
Bring the Outside In
Summer is all about spending time outdoors. However, in St. George, the air conditioned indoors is often more comfortable. Bring the outside into your home with natural elements such as potted plants, stones and shells. Pick an outdoor setting, like the desert or the beach, to coordinate your decorating efforts along with the color scheme you’ve chosen.
Let in the Light
The difference between a summer decor and a winter decor often has to do with the lighting. More light is important in the summer to add that brighter feeling. Trade your heavy drapes with sheer window coverings. Use summer candles to help brighten up your space. Twinkle lights, especially outside, can add a nice summer touch as well.
Decorate Outside Spaces
Your yard and deck areas are great places to entertain during summer months. Invest in some outdoor furniture and make sure your decor matches the rest of the home. Use your color scheme and natural elements from inside the home outside as well. Keep your yard well maintained and it will become a beautiful oasis for you, your family, and friends to stay.
Use bright and light as your mantra as your decorate your home for summer. Freshen up the space with natural decor, use bold and bright patterns and let in the light. Your home will feel summer ready in no time!
