As many of us will be enjoying a staycation this year, it’s the perfect time to spruce your home up with some summer decorations. Whether you’d usually be partying it up in Ibiza, sunning yourself in the south of France or hitting the theme parks of the USA, adding some summer decorations to the inside and outside of your home helps to bring the sunshine!
A Pop Of Colour
One of the quickest ways to bring some colour to your rooms is adding splashes of colour throughout. From fresh flowers to bold artwork, pops of colour across the home is a great way to get some summer indoors. You can’t go wrong with a bowl of lemons and limes.
Make Use Of Your Fireplace
You won’t be making a fire over the summer months so why not utilise your open fireplace and make something beautiful. From a pile of driftwood to nautical ideas, you can inject some seaside fun into one of the focal points of your room with these summer decorations.
Take The Inside Out
Maybe you fancy creating a little section of the garden where you can enjoy reading a good book or relax as a family? This is a great idea but you don’t always feel comfortable with garden furniture. Bring some indoor furniture into the outdoors and you can maybe even create a little shaded nook where you can enjoy breakfast.
Poolside Style Without The Pool
Moroccan design floor cushions, floaty natural looking curtain and pop up umbrellas help to create perfect poolside style. You can get a padding pool to add some water fun and an ability to cool down from sweating in the sun too. Don’t forget some inflatables too! If you have the actual swimming pool to go with you poolside style, even better!
Spruce Up The Decking
There’s something fantastic about walking out on the deck overlooking the garden. If you haven’t given your decking area that much love, now is the time to add some summer decorations. Painting the furniture. Add some oversized plants. A rustic table with a range of drinks on it really brings your space to life. If you don’t have a decking area, utilise whatever bit of space you do have. That lean to down the side of the house could have a lot of potential.
A Beautiful Big Frame
Why not hang a beautiful big frame on the wall to remind yourself of your favourite holiday destination. You could even frame a large picturesque photo of the view you’d usually be looking at. If you don’t have space for a frame, utilise your television set. You could even have a looping video of beautiful waves lapping on the shore. You can almost imagine you’re there!
Lighten Up A Bit
If you have lots of dark wood you could paint it white. Dark wood lends itself to an autumn or winter feel. Painting wood white brightens the mood and gives your room a summery feel.
Bring a little bit of that holiday you’re missing out on, into your house this year with these ideas for summer decorations.
