Bring Summer Indoors with These Freshening Tips

Published on

Summer flies by way too fast and it will be over before too long! The best way to liven up the rest of the season and carry the colorful and bright summer spirit into fall is by furnishing your home with the textures, colors and feel of a beautiful, sunny day. With these design and decorating trends, you can bring summer indoors:

Fresh Flowers
Be inspired by the outdoor views and vibrant flowers during this summer season and bring a little touch of that uplifting nature indoors. Flowers and plants can be placed around the house in pots or use delicious herbs with enticing aromas. If you, or someone in your home, suffers from allergies, consider hanging flower decorations.

Fresh Air
One of the best things about summer is a cool breeze on a hot, sunny day. You can enjoy the air even more with storm doors or window screens that offer that extra ventilation.

Fresh Décor
Summer might just be the right time to redecorate your living spaces with those bright, summer colors. Mix outdoor furniture within your home to create a seamless transition between your vibrant indoor aesthetic and the outside. Pastel colors are also a perfect style for a living room or kitchen in the summer, enticing guests in and building a cozy and cool room.

Fresh Paint
Are there some places in your home where you spend more time during the summer? Maybe a four-seasons porch or even your living room? Consider offering this room a “summer face-lift” with a new summer-inspired paint job or some vivid wall art.
