5 Ideas To Catch The Summer Vibes In Your Home

Summer is the perfect time to try new things and freshen up your home a bit. The best way to do that is to emulate the relaxed summer vibe and bring it inside. From vibrant colors to plants and flowers, summer paintings and more—there are countless options you could choose from. Here are our top 5 choices:

A touch of greenery

Greenery is coming back in style, and in 2019, it’s the go-to trend in interior design! Not only that, but it’s one of the simplest ways to bring summer vibes into your home. Even just a couple of indoor plants can make the whole room come alive. You could use any free corner in your house, or even better, near the windows, as plants need much light to thrive. Use your creativity here, and add a variety of different plants and pots. To make an even more significant impact, you could make a statement wall just with plants, thus creating a neat green oasis in your living room.

Flowers everywhere

Nothing screams “summer” better than freshly picked flowers, and adding some is the best way to invite warmth inside. Even just a couple of flowers will make the room vibrant and cheerful. Whatever you can get your hands on, get it inside! Marigolds, Zinnias, Geraniums or Cornflowers are all a great choice, and can instantly make your home a much more exciting place. Try to contrast different colors like greens, purples, pinks and reds to make the whole space look fun and refreshing. There is only one downside to fresh flowers—they’re expensive! So, it would be best if you had a flower garden. If not, make a habit of picking up at least a couple of flowers during your weekly visit to the market.

Incorporate wall art

Although it might seem that wall art is expensive, it doesn’t always have to be that way. If you know what you’re doing and integrate it tastefully, you could get away with not paying much at all. Paintings are always a safe way to make a statement. And if you keep them hanging on the wall for a long time, you might become indifferent to them, or even completely forget that they’re there. That’s why it’s necessary to change things up a bit every once in a while. So, when the summer is near, add some bright and colorful landscape paintings. If you’re willing to try something new, you could opt for glass prints, like those that Summer Scenes has to offer. Professional, high-quality summer themed photos mounted on your wall will add another dimension to your home.

Bring in the light

The best thing about summer is that there’s much light, so you don’t have to face winter’s dark and gloomy days. So, why not use this to your advantage? Let some light in, and make the room instantly pop! This can be as simple as pulling the curtains back, or changing them, and adding new ones made out of more delicate fabric. You might even consider removing them, but only if you can pull this off. Also, it won’t cost you anything! However, if you’re willing to invest, you could add new blinds or shutters to complement your windows and to make it easier to control the flow of light.

Bright colors on the walls

Powerful, brightly colored walls are always in style when it comes to summer, and it’s no different this year. Summer might be the perfect time to replace those moody winter tones with fresh and cool ones. However, choosing the right color can be a difficult task. Your best choice would be to follow the overall flow and design of the room and to make sure the colors match it. Typically, different shades of green and blue are the most popular choice, because they are the most relaxing and simulate nature. If you want to take a different approach, you could make a statement wall with wallpapers by choosing summer themed patterns like flowers, nature or fruit.

Summers are great to let your creativity run wild! Lots of beautiful, sunny days will motivate you to roll up your sleeves and start changing things. And the best thing is that those changes don’t have to cost much money. With just a touch of imagination and inspiration, you can make your home a delightful little summer haven.
