Carry Summer Inside 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 atmosphere 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 inside:

Fresh Flowers
Be inspired by the outdoor landscaping and colorful 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,  aromatic herbs. If you, or someone in your home, has allergies, consider life-like artificial flower decorations.

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

Fresh Décor
Summer might just be the best 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 design and the outside. Pastel colors are also a great option for a living room or kitchen in the summer, inviting guests in and making a cozy and cool atmosphere.

Fresh Paint
Are there some rooms 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 lively wall art.
