With summer right around the corner, you’ll want to brighten up your home with fresh, easy changes. Let’s emphasize easy because we know you’ll want to devote most of your time with friends, family and enjoying the outdoors as much as you can.
When trying to shift into the new season, refer to these three easy tips:
Green is good
Adding green to your home is the simplest and easiest way to make your home feel like summer is officially upon us. If green isn’t typically a color you prefer, fret not. Buying a eucalyptus branch and putting it into a simple glass vase can transform a space in an instant. Succulents are also a good choice to help add a little summer to your home. These plants are very popular because they are low-maintenance, only having to water them about once a week. To know which clean air plants should go in your home this summer, refer to This Old House.
Woven and wicker
You’ll suddenly feel “summer ready” after adding woven-like textures to your home. Whether it be rocking chairs on your front porch or rattan chairs in your sunroom. Woven or wicker textures work really well with potted flowers or plants. Before you know it, you’ll have a blooming garden look inside of your house.
A great way to freshen up a space for summer is to put white linen slipcovers on your furniture. This adds a casual elegance to the room and will look excellent with woven or wicker material and vibrant plants. If you’re looking for a more colorful summer look, throw a batik hand-blocked print over your kitchen or dining room table. This will be the perfect pop of color your house needs to feel summery.
Now that you’ve brought the outside in with plants, wicker and homespun linen, you’re ready to kick start the summer with your first gathering showcasing your simple and fresh indoor changes.
