Décor Ideas For The Summer

10 December 2020



Although it is currently the middle of winter in the northern hemisphere and you might not have summer on your mind just now, preparing in advance for when summer does come is something you might want to consider. If you think about these important things ahead of time, you’ll be able to get right on with them once the better weather and warmer days come around. You won’t waste a moment of summer thinking about what you should be doing.

When it comes to changing up your décor, this is exactly the way to do it. There is nothing to stop you from looking forward to the summer by deciding what changes you’re going to make to your interior (or even exterior) design next year. Here are some ideas to be getting on with.

Beach House Chic

Whether you’re going to literally spruce up the beach house or you want to incorporate some more summer-themed décor ideas into your main home, this style is a great one to choose. Beach house chic never goes out of style, so if you decorate your home in this way for next year, it’s a look that you can keep for as long as you want – although you might prefer to change back to a more cozy, wintry vibe when fall and winter begin.

To get started with your beach house look you’ll need to use cotton or linen fabrics. To make things truly easy, just purchase slipcovers that can be put over your current furniture. Not only is this less expensive than buying new couches and chairs, but it also means you can change your style whenever you want.

The best colours to use in a beach house style are creams, blues, and khakis. Everything should be light and bright, and any window dressing should be thin.

Bright Flowers

What says ‘summer’ better than brightly coloured flowers? Having blooms placed strategically in your home is a sure way to make everything feel hopeful, bright, and happy – which is just how summer makes many people feel.

If you want to be completely sure of the flowers you’ll be able to use in your home, you can plant the seeds or bulbs in your yard and pick them when they are fully grown. In this way, you can design the kinds of bouquets and arrangements you’re going to have ahead of time. Imagine spending a relaxing hour or so on the couch with a notepad and a hot beverage, covered in a cozy blanket, dreaming of the beautiful blooms you’re going to decorate your home within the summertime.


Pops Of Color

In the winter, dark, muted tones are best to create a gorgeous, warming, cozy feel in your home. In the summer, you need to use much lighter colours, and, as mentioned above, your furniture can be covered with slipcovers to achieve this.


However, if you leave things too white and bright, it can get a bit dull, even if you love it at first. The best thing you can do to prevent that happening is to add pops of colour throughout your house. This can be done with art on the walls, with cushions, a rug, flowers, bedding, or anything else that springs to mind. Just a few touches of colour here and there will give you a lovely summery look and feel in your home.
