Beach or coastal décor is always a win in the summer months. The key to making the most of a costal theme is to included natural materials. In this photo, the bright aqua and tan color scheme is complimented by the beach inspired accents in the home as well as the many different wood tones.
Embrace the light, and rid your space of the darkness of winter. That means out with dark woods and warm tones - and in with bright whites. From curtains to couches to accessories, accent items don’t always have to be in colorful tones. Thoughtful additions of crisp, clean white will have your space feeling like summer in no time.
Throw in a summer accent item to go with your newly lightened space; consider a pastel colored arm chair. Patterned accent chairs are also a great choice. A fun chair entices guests into your space, and adds a bright pop of summer flair to your barbecues and pool parties. When you take a seat this summer, do it in style.
There’s nothing quite like a living art piece. A small plant in a painted clay pot makes for a wonderful side table arrangement, and larger pieces of greenery can transform a room into an oasis. If you have a green thumb, this is the perfect time to trim a flowering shrub in your yard and create a dinner table arrangement.
Not every wall hanging needs to be a piece of art. This summer, try purchasing a number of round mirrors with eclectic frames. Hang them in an interesting arrangement to provide an eye-catching feature. Not only will colorful, funky frames add a playful element to the space, but the mirrors will also bounce the summer light around, making your room appear larger.
