5 Quick Ways to Freshen Your Home for Summer
Bring the essence of summer into your home!
You probably decorate your home to set the mood for a special holiday or celebration. So why not give your home a little makeover to celebrate all that’s wonderful about summer? Here are five quick and easy ways to refresh your home interior for summer living.
1. Change a Rug, Change the Ambiance!
Summer is the perfect time to have your everyday rug sent out for its yearly cleaning. So, take advantage of this maintenance inconvenience by switching to a lighter weight rug for the summer season! Colorful flat weaves and natural fiber rugs like seagrass, sisal, and jute can instantly give your room a summer feel.
2. Add Fresh Flower and Fruit Arrangements.
Not only are they visually appealing, but fresh floral and fruit arrangements add the fragrance of summer to a room. Place a decorative bowl full of tangerines on your cocktail table for a splash of freshness and color, or, keep some fresh cut flowers by your bedside.
3. Rattan or Wicker Furniture Add Natural Beauty.
When you see rattan and wicker furniture, you might think of tropical islands, sunny blue skies, and time on the beach. Rattan and wicker offer a relaxed, easy style. You don’t need to do an entire room… just swap out an accent chair, ottoman, or table for something in these materials. You’ll add texture, warmth, and a hint of summer living!
4. Switch Your Photos and Frames!
A quick way to bring summer to your home is by switching out your existing photos and frames for ones that capture the mood of the season and bring back fond memories of summers past.
5. Use Seasonal Throws, Pillows, and Bed Linens.
Don’t forget to change your textiles! Treat yourself to the cool luxury of soft linen sheets for the summer. Sprinkle some fun, colorful pillows around to give your home that pop of color. And, don’t forget a lightweight throw to snuggle in when watching a movie together on a rainy day.
