Five ways to add summer’s brightness to your home
Hot summer days filled with sunshine and bright blue skies that end with relaxing sunsets are here. A refreshing, cold iced-tea (sweetened, of course) makes for the perfect break in the afternoon. Just thinking about juicy watermelon slices have my mouth watering! From summer fruit to flip-flops, bright colors are everywhere you turn. Why not bring this bright summer feeling into your home? Here are 5 quick and simple ways to go bright in your home this summer!
Use bright curtains or shades to dress your windows up for the season. Make it fun and floral! Window treatments can also help protect your room from that blazing summer sun and even keep a room cooler.
One of the simplest ways to add brightness to your décor is with fun accessories. It’s also the safest way to experiment with bright colors since you can easily swap out accessories if they’re not working. This is a great option if you already have a neutral room. From throw blankets to lamps, you’ll find plenty of lively options to embellish your room.
Go big, bold, and bright! Pick your favorite vivid color and paint an accent wall in your room. You’ll get maximum impact with minimal investment. You’ll be amazed how far a little bit of paint can go!
If you’re looking for something a little more permanent but not ready to commit to a standout wall, you can add some brightly-colored furnishings. An accent chair, a side table, or a brightly colored sofa can add the excitement you crave this summer.
Whether it’s wall to wall bold or a striking accent rug, don’t forget that your floors can be a great place to add color. If you plan on going bright on the floors, remember to keep the rest of the room fairly neutral. An outdoor space is the perfect place to experiment!
