7 Ways To Brighten Up Your Home This Summer

The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and the flowers are blooming. Summer is upon us! Bring some of that warmth and sunshine to your decor to brighten up your home for the warmer months ahead. We’ve got seven suggestions here to get you well on your way! During the colder winter months, it’s nice to cozy up a place with accessories, but once the sun is shining, it’s a good time to tuck those extra accessories away in favor of clean, sparkling surfaces.

Lighten the color palette in your accessories. Bring in fresh and cheery colours…greens, oranges, bright whites. Switch out the warm tones on your pillows, candles, and table decor for the colors of summer.

Pack away the winter textiles. While you’re boxing up winter hats, gloves, and scarfs from closets, take a good look around your rooms. Are there throw blankets draped over chairs and ottomans? Warm-toned rugs? Layers of drapery? Consider packing those away for the warmer months, it’s time to shed the cozy look for open and inviting.

Take it outside! Don’t ignore all of your outside areas…with the warmer weather upon us, activities tend to spill outside. Spend some time cleaning up your patio and garden areas by giving them a powerwash.

Add color with fruits and flowers. Flowers tend to get all the credit for being the beautiful, showy representatives of spring and summer. However, fresh fruits (and vegtables) can actually make beautiful displays themselves and brighten up your home. Bring live plants indoors. In addition to fresh cut flowers, consider bringing in live plants.

White Towels. Ditch the colorful towels, or save them for the pool and beach, and wrap up in bright white towels. Fold a couple and place them next to your bathtub, top with a tower of soap, and you’ve added a bit of summer to your bathroom!

Take care of your garden furniture. Outdoor furniture often gets ruined for all sorts of reasons, from bad weather to toddler feet! Our outdoor furniture needs to withstand a lot more than its indoor cousins. Make it last as long as possible by washing it regularly and adding some car wax to help moisture easily run off the surface.

Bring in some natural textiles. Woven materials are another way to blur the lines between the indoors and outdoors. It’s not always practical to purchase a sisal rug or bamboo shades, but place-mats and chargers brighten up your home just as well and are an easy and affordable way to achieve a similar effect.

We hope that these tips were useful in ensuring that your indoor space reflects the warm weather outside!
