Summer decorating is so much fun — it’s a great excuse to update your decor. Hence, summer activities can take you inside and out this season. Also, that means you’ll have plenty of space to decorate.
The key to a summer makeover is light fabrics, bright colors and even a touch of beach-inspired decor. Therefore, you can update your home for the season with just a few accessories or go big and add a stunning outdoor dining set.
Most summer-inspired decor can be stored away when it’s time for autumn decorating. That keeps your decor fresh when the season is back next year. Here are our favorite ideas for making the most of your summer at home:
Woodsy All the Way!
Wood might not be a color. But, adding reclaimed wood to your living room is a wonderful way to give it a brand new appeal in a neutral, elegant fashion. This not only leaves the color palette of the house untouched. But, ensures that the modern living space has a warmer and inviting visual appeal. From the contemporary ceiling to the accent wall, there are plenty of options here. You can go a step further as well with a living room in wood that embraces rustic, farmhouse or industrial styles in a classic manner.
Coral Holds its Sway
There is not much that we can add about coral that we have not already shared with you. Thus, apart from the fact that it is a hot favorite that is set to continue well into 2020 as well. Hence, dubbed the color of the year already, coral in its many hues can make a big impact in any living room. Hence, even when used in moderation. Most of us tend to staunchly stay away from shades of orange because it feels all too bright. But coral offers a smart compromise between the bright orangy glint and modern, understated elegance. Try out coral this summer and you will not regret it one bit!
Warm Earth Tones
It is not all that difficult to discover warm, earthy tones that look best in your living room. Hence, just look at the landscape that surrounds your home and you will know what works best. Therefore, summer is a great time to try these colors out and since they feel neutral and inviting. Also, they look great all year long. You will not be forced to switch between hues too often when you use them and adding brighter, trendier colors is easy here as well.
Give Green a Try in 2020
Green is another one of those colors that rarely gets a major mention in the living room. Maybe it is because the color feels too bright for some and maybe the trend of grays and neutrals is what we want to emulate. But green backdrops and décor choices are a hit in the living room this year and even if you are not fully committed to the color, you can try out accents in green to start things off.
