Spring has come and gone, and now you need to prepare your home for summer! While these two seasons are somewhat similar, we will be discussing the differences and details to change around your home for a pain-free transition from spring to summer!
Change Color Scheme
Although spring and summer have very similar aesthetics, there are a few subtle differences between them. For example, spring calls for soft colors, while summer calls for vibrant ones! Using this key difference, changing your home’s color scheme is important when transitioning your home décor from spring to summer. For spring, the color scheme consists of neutral, pastel colors and soft-colored greenery. However, it’s expected to be bold with your colors for summer! Experiment with loud colors as accents in your home. If accent walls are not your cup of tea, plenty of bold-colored flowers would add a nice touch to any space in your home while providing that change of color scheme for summer. Accent colors could also be included through wall art! Change that soft spring-inspired art for some cheerful art reminiscent of summer! Some other ways of incorporating a new color scheme that’s appropriate for this season are changing your throw pillows, decorating your space with bright candles, switching your towels, hand towels, and kitchen towels with bright-colored ones, or adding a colorful centerpiece to your dining room table. Lastly, summertime is when many like to switch their home décor for something themed and nautical or fruit-inspired. There are plenty of coastal home décor items and fruity-themed pieces to choose from, so have some fun!
Try Different Textures
Besides changing the color scheme, experimenting with different textures can also emphasize the airiness and lightness of summer. For example, flowy white fabrics can add a sense of breezy relaxation to your space. Try changing your curtains for some white flowy ones made of lightweight materials or replacing your living room throws with some soft-textured, lightweight ones. Moreover, changing your comforter for a lovely quilt will add to the summer aesthetic and help you sleep well during the hotter months! Thinner fabrics for the summer are essential, and there are many different textures to opt for! If you’re feeling bold and sexy, try incorporating some lace throughout your home. Lace is a great summer fabric because it’s lightweight and breezy while adding a unique texture to your home décor. Moreover, if you’re looking to include a more extensive project for the summer, we suggest incorporating tile into your home! Tile floors are fantastic for the summer months because they’re easy to maintain and will keep your home cool. However, flooring is not your only option! Tile backsplashes for your kitchen are a great way to change it for the summer months. You can opt for an all-white backsplash or get funky with bright-colored tile!
Lastly, the easiest way to vamp up your space for summer is to rearrange your furniture! Open up your room to make it airier and light. Another great tip is to organize your living areas for a fresh start to the next few months! Make sure all of your summer essentials are out of storage and easily accessible for the hotter months, as well as add new storage space for any new things you will accumulate during the summer. Lastly, focus some energy and resources on your outdoor space, as summer is the perfect time to utilize that area for some fun cookouts and get-togethers!
