Welcome the new season by sprucing up your home’s decor for Summer! “Summerize” your home with some of these easy touch ups. Your home, family and friends will thank you!
Say Goodbye to Winter
Seasonal interior updates will make your home space lighter and brighter. Store dark pillows or rugs and replace them with brighter accessories that compliment what you already have. Choose an accent color that will fit the existing scheme and find pieces that elevate the color. A lighter and brighter color scheme is in trend for the Summer season and it will also help make your space appear larger and more inviting.
Revitalize with Flowers
Flowers are an excellent way to bring color and vibrancy into your home decor. Replace candles with vases for fresh cut flowers from your gardens. Summer garden flowers such as wax begonias, caladiums and periwinkle are low maintenance and a beautiful touch to add to your home’s interior spaces. Fresh flowers will revitalize your surfaces and guests!
Embrace the Summer Sun
Sun kissed windows will invite Summer into your home! Welcome the Summer sunshine through sparkling clean glass and fresh window treatments. Thoroughly wash your windows with equal parts water-vinegar solution and replace Winter drapes with thin sheers in light and airy colors.
Extend Your Living Space to the Outdoors
Create an outdoor extension of your indoor living space. Wash off last year’s patio furniture. Patio or deck cleaning will require warm, soapy water, a scrub brush and a hose. Take advantage of warm mornings with coffee on the patio or warm nights with an evening BBQ. Bringing your indoor comfort outside will help you get the most out of Summer. Consider adding colorful pillows to your outdoor furniture to enhance your style and comfort. Flowering planters and candles make your outdoor space just that much more inviting.
Stock Up for Summer
Stock up on Summer essentials. Sun block, aloe and insect repellant are a “must have” for Summer. Keep fresh and fluffy beach towels ready for Summer fun in the water. Keep a picnic basket prepped with colorful linens and biodegradable dishware at the ready. Fill your garage with backyard sports items such as a cornhole, croquet, badminton or lawn bowling set.
