Summer is officially here! It’s time to fill your home with summery kitchen trends, and easy breezy décor in the living room, bedroom and bath. Here are some terrific tips to help you infuse your interior with summer style.
By The Sea
Summer style is all about color. Beach-inspired blues are reminiscent of the sea and sky, and are the perfect choice for summer. Options run the gamut from pale aqua to deep navy. Other colors that epitomize the warmth of the season include sunny yellow hues, sandy beige, driftwood gray, grassy green, crisp white, and bright citrus tones like pink grapefruit and lime.
The Living Is Easy
Swap out the wool throws, velvet pillows, and heavy drapery in the living room for linen, burlap, and lightweight cotton fabrics. Sheer drapes let the sun shine through during the day, while thin knits are the perfect amount of warmth while watching TV in the evening. Add seasonal touches to TV room cabinetry, like glass jars of seashells and pots filled with succulents or fresh flowers.
Those Summer Nights
In the bedroom, opt for a thin quilt or duvet instead of a heavy comforter on the bed. If your home has central air conditioning, you may still want a blanket as well. With that said, now is a good time time to pack away those thick wool and microfiber blankets in favor of lighter cotton knits.
When choosing summer bedding, stick with a seasonal color scheme. Just be sure to find something that compliments your existing furniture and wall color. Summery patterns include:
- Tie Dye
All the above-mentioned rules hold true for the bathroom as well. From shower curtains to towels, choose lightweight fabrics in seasonally appropriate colors and fabrics. Then add a touch of the outdoors with potted plants that love humidity, perfectly placed on your bathroom vanity. For more tips on how to turn your bathroom into a tropical oasis, click here.
In The Summertime
The kitchen is the heart of the home, and this is especially true in the summer months. Looking at kitchen trends, glass front cabinets add a touch of airiness to the space, and the opportunity to showcase pretty pottery and stemware. If you’re lucky enough to have a wet bar in your kitchen, stock your bar room cabinetry with summer cocktail essentials. Spend a few pennies on unbreakable melamine plates that can easily move outdoors for dining al fresco. Top your table with a natural fiber runner or linens, and a vase of fresh summer blooms or seasonal fruit.
