It feels like it was January just yesterday! At a blink of an eye, we are already through the first week of May! With June less than a month away, are you ready to bring Summer vibes into your home?
Unfortunately, it takes a lot more than just opening your blinds to bring this season into your home. No matter the shape, size, or location of your home and kitchen, there are plenty of ways to make your home feel like a Summer oasis.
Summer decor is bold, bright and cheerful. Incorporating fun colors and patterns can make your home feel like you’re actually on a cruise in the Bahamas! You don’t need to go ‘all out’ by painting your walls some bright color either! Accessories will always be your best friend no matter the season. While Spring is about pinks and pastels, Summer is about bold and bright. Try adding a few bright accessories in your glass front cabinets and open shelving or plop that color right on your counter!
Bring on the plants
House plants are becoming more and more popular in recent years. Decorative plants are great and bring a lot of life into the home, but functional plants are exciting as well! Aloe Vera and herbs are great for uses around the house! Another great option are Spider plants! These little palms are easy to care for, and are great at cleaning the air! You don’t need an outdoor space to grow these either! If you don’t have a windowsill that is adequate for planting, check out this DIY Mobile Garden Container. Whether you want herbs or just some decoration, plants will always add a sense of life to a home and definitely brighten the mood!
Bring in natural materials
When decorating, think “beach house”. There is no need to add the shells and starfish decor (Unless you want to of course). Wicker, wood grain, and terracotta are all wonderful materials to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living.
Make it light and airy
Time to get rid of all the heavy winter materials. Integrate light and airy fabrics into your home’s design. This will give the space a light and airy feel, while keeping the space much cooler. If your home is filled with dark rugs and drapes, swap them out for the summer months. This will let more light in and keep your space feeling happy and free.
