Summer decor often includes bold, natural colors and elements that evoke the outdoors. Consider incorporating items such as open windows, sunshine, lemonade or iced tea, and summery touches of color to bring a summery atmosphere to your home. Now is the perfect time to start incorporating these elements into your decor.
WHEN TO START DECORATING FOR SUMMER
The ideal time to start decorating for summer is after the winter season has ended and the spring season has progressed. Adding summer decor to your space is a great way to leave the dull days of winter and spring behind. Also, you can use your favorite spring decorations and incorporate them into your summer decor, which makes it easy to forget about the spring rain and muddy shoes. This way you can enjoy the summer season even more.
SUNNIER DAYS AHEAD WITH NEW SUMMER DECOR
Bring a touch of summer into your home without overhauling every room. Keep some of your favorite details from your spring decor and incorporate them into your summer style. You can decorate both indoors and outdoors or just focus on one area.
1.FRONT PORCH SUMMER DECOR
Create a summery atmosphere before even entering your home by decorating your front porch. Add a colorful wreath or lighted door hanger for a welcoming feel. Incorporate elements such as a colorful umbrella for shade, a charming water fountain, or welcome signs to greet guests.
2. LIVING ROOM SUMMER DECOR
Add summer-inspired touches to your living room by incorporating bright colors, natural elements, and light fabrics. Think about adding a colorful throw pillow or a summery floral arrangement to bring a touch of the season into the room.
3. KITCHEN SUMMER DECOR
Bring a touch of summer into your kitchen by incorporating bright and bold colors, natural elements, and light fabrics. You can switch out your kitchen linens for bright and colorful options or add a colorful backsplash to make a statement. You can also incorporate fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables as decor. Consider adding a few potted herbs on the windowsill, a bowl of fresh lemons or limes on the counter, or a vase of sunflowers as a centerpiece. These small changes can make a big impact in bringing a summery feel to your kitchen.
4. SUMMER INSPIRED MANTEL DECOR
Adding seasonal touches to your home can be easy with summer mantel decor. Select a mantel clock in a neutral color or one with a pop of delicate color. Place it beside a decorative urn filled with summer blooms or a faux summer plant. Incorporate a decorative object such as a sculpture with a metallic finish to catch the light. These simple changes can instantly bring a summery feel to your home.
FRESHEN UP FOR SUMMER
Bringing a summery feel to your home can be easy, especially with decor styles like farmhouse and minimalist. These styles provide a neutral base that allows colorful summer-inspired art and accessories to stand out. Additionally, these styles often feature light and neutral colors that naturally create a warm and summery atmosphere in your home.
MINIMALIST SUMMER DECOR
Minimalist decor is a great way to incorporate a summery feel into your home without overwhelming the space. Stick to a neutral color palette and incorporate natural elements such as wood, rattan, or cork. Use light-colored linens and textiles to create a sense of warmth and bring in pops of color with summer flowers or fresh fruits. Keep decor simple and clean to create a calm and relaxing environment that is perfect for summer.
FARMHOUSE SUMMER DECOR
Farmhouse decor features a blend of neutral colors and rustic elements that evoke a charming, country-inspired ambiance. It's simple to refresh the look each season by switching out accessories. For summer, consider incorporating a bright sculpture or faux plant on a weathered gray wood coffee table in the living room. Add pops of color with throw pillows and a soft-hued duvet cover on metal or rustic wood beds. Hang cheerful plaid curtains in the kitchen to let in light while maintaining privacy.
