Whilst summer may mean that you will be spending lots of time outside of your house, that doesn’t mean that you should forget about how your home looks inside.
In fact, summer could be the ideal time for you to think about how you can transform the interior of your home and have it looking the best that it can. If you have decided that the warmer weather is the ideal time for you to get decorating and change how your home looks, we have put together some inspirational tips to help you get the look you are hoping for.
Recreating the outside, inside
Seeing as it is summer when the world outside your window is looking its best, it makes sense that one of the best trends to follow is to recreate the beauty of the outside, inside.
Think lush greens and bright, vibrant pops of colour throughout. Not only this, but you can really add to this overall look by placing a variety of houseplants in your inside space too. Although, just remember that these need to be looked after.
You might think that blue is a colour that lacks warmth and can appear cold, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Blue is listed as the 2022 Pantone Colour of the Year. Blue is bold and bright, but if you use it in the right way, it can be a stylish and chic colour to add to your room.
Many people choose to have blue as a focal colour in their room; others will add the finishing touches to their room, such as cushions and rugs, all in various blue hues.
Add colour with wall art
We love the idea of wall art. Being able to change up how the entire room looks with ease and add lots of colour, texture and interest into the space.
Summer is a great time to change up your wall art and think about how you can bring your home to life. The great thing about wall art is that you can make sure that it suits your budget and taste as best as it can. You can either try and make some yourself, find cheaper ways to source wall art or perhaps just decorate your home with prints and photos personal to you and your family.
Many of us have heard of the term shabby chic, but not everyone is sure how you create this look in your home. The idea of shabby chic is to add finishing touches that are cosy and worn-in. You want the entire room to be rustic, comfortable, and a welcoming part of your home.
One great thing about shabby chic is that it works well with earthy tones and neutral colours. This means if you want to warm up your room rather than have cool colours, then other shabby chic touches will still work well.
So, what are you waiting for? Use summer as your chance to re-decorate and re-design your home, creating a bright and colourful space that you can come back to after a busy day in the sunshine.
