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:
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 enticing, brightly scented herbs. If you, or someone in your home, suffers from allergies, consider life-like artificial flower decorations.
One of the best parts of summer is a cool breeze on a hot, sunny day. You can enjoy that feeling even more with storm doors or window screens that offer that relieving ventilation.
Summer might just be the right time to redecorate your rooms with those bright, summer colors. Mix outdoor furniture within your home to create a seamless transition between your lively indoor look and the outside. Pastel colors are also a great look for a living room or kitchen in the summer, bringing guests in and making a cozy and cool room.
Are there some areas in your home where you spend more time during the summer? Maybe a four-seasons porch or even your living room? Consider giving this room a 'summer face-lift" with a cool, summer-inspired paint job or some bright wall art.
