Summer is here and if you’re like me, you have no joys of the outdoor space but we can have a little fun by bringing the colors and summer time fineness indoors. So there are 5 things that you can do to spruce up your space for the summer that’ll flutter your heart a little bit and bring some color into your life.
Change Those Drapes
Take down your thick opaque winter regretful curtains and put up some sheer or if you’re worried about the creepers outside, you can use curtains that have brighter hues and scream fun. I’m putting up sheer curtains that give privacy but still flood natural light in. Don’t forget to give your windows a nice little clean so you can get the best sunlight that can result in best selfie lighting.
Switch Out Your Pillows
For the winter I had these deep burgundy pillows and mixed it these ivory pillows but we not doing that this summer we pulling out the color. So I’m going with these bright magenta pillows and mixing them with these sexy satin pillows I got from west elm.
Let’s do the most in bringing in some life by adding some greenery. In the spring and summer time Lowes and Home Depot have the best plant sales, get you one, two or five. You can also add some color with flowers from your local grocery stores.
Here’s where we bring in some of our personality. Let’s get the best punchy flowed that will pull from the colors in your room (in your pillows and curtains) and pair them with some books, tchotchkes and some of your favorite things. There is no wrong way to style a coffee table, it’s the “necklace” of the living room so you can bring in anything that makes your heart pitta patta.
Switch Out The Rug
Now if you’re like me you have a winter and a summer area rug so you can just get to switching. However for the normal people out there who have one area rug and some storage under your bed, roll that area rug up and give yourself that bright and airy feel. I’m telling you, it will give you that clean crisp feeling. Another option will be to add layers to your living room using woven rugs for that bohemian vibe.
So these quick 5 steps to get your place summer time ready will give your space that feeling in bringing the outside in.
