Summer brings the best out in people as it makes everyone happier, full of energy and life, and really glad that the gloomy days of winter are over. While some people are mostly interested in bringing their body back in shape, others like to renovate or at least re-decorate their home to really leave every winter streak behind. You can do so too with these easy home decorating tips for summer.
If you live in an area that tends to be quite hot for summer, you might want keep the strong sun out and maintain your home cool. For example don’t use lamps with wooden lampshades and remove any items of brass from the home. You can easily have lampshades that are made of light fabric in pastel and neutral tones, and instead of the brass items use clear glass or crystal ones. Also if you have the time and patience (and budget) replace your heavy wooden flooring with something much lighter like cork or bamboo.
Change the wall paint with something light and pastel, including light blue, yellow or baby pink.
Leave the windows open throughout the day at least when you are at home, so fresh air can enter the room and air out the stuffiness from the walls and furniture.
Change some of your dying plants with new and fresh ones. Also get in flowers and put them in vases on various tables and counter tops in the kitchen and living room.
In the bedroom change your heavy bedsheets and bed covers to some lighter ones in fabric type and pattern.
Remove any home accessories that are in shades of dark red, brown, black and magenta. Replace them with light colors such as white, beige, light pink and blue. Also avoid fabrics made of synthetics and silk. Use instead simple linen and cotton as they make your room cooler in the hot summer months.
