Sometimes transitioning your home’s interior dećor from winter to spring and summer seems like a long, exhausting task. However, simply adding one or two elements can do the trick. Let’s take a look at the following tips on how to add the perfect summer touch to your home.
One easy way to start the transition is by the addition of some colorful area rugs. Area rugs can create enough of a change to match the season without having to update the entire room and can be used in just about any space.
Any time you add colorful flowers to your home, it instantly transforms the room. Area rugs with a colorful, flowery design will do the same. Just be sure to use rugs that compliment your furniture and wall color and help create an overall room theme.
Just because you don’t live on a beach doesn’t mean your home can’t be designed to feel like a beach home. A coastal chic look has many options, and it’s not just about anchors and boat oars. Try some bold stripes with a light blue and white palette. Maybe add some weathered wood and a few other nautical designs and your home will be summer ready.
Check your furniture
It’s easy to overlook your furniture when creating that summer feel. Take a quick look at your furniture. Maybe you’ve got some old chairs that are dark and gloomy that could use a facelift. Maybe some light colors with a high-gloss finish will liven up the room.
We’re not suggesting going and painting your hardwood kitchen table that you paid an arm and leg for. But if it’s standing out like a sore thumb, maybe switch out the placemats with some lighter tones and add some flowers.
Especially in Michigan, it’s time to reward ourselves by welcoming the spring and summer feel into our homes. Just think outside the box a little and don’t be afraid to try some new things. You never know what will transform your home from the winter to summer.
