Summertime is here. The days are longer, brighter, and full of exciting new opportunities. The cold season had you hunkered down in your home with layers and layers of clothing on.
Whereas summer calls you to pull up your shades, throw back your curtains, and embrace the sunshine streaming into your window. Changes in season are always exciting to witness. Like all changes, they represent a new beginning, a chance to start over or transition into a new style.
The feeling of renewal that comes with a new season also extends to your home. If you’re looking to transform your home to accommodate the changing weather, ferm LIVING offers a wide range of design options.
Here are some effective ways to give your home a seasonal makeover.
Introduce bright and bold colors
When transitioning from cold to warmer seasons, it’s time to let the light in. Dark tones and hues are perfectly suitable for cold months but will only lend your home a stuffy feel when summer comes. Introduce bright colors and warm hues to take advantage of the sunlight.
The key is to choose colors that flow well with your house’s overall decor. Select a neutral base then add bold colors to create a palette that will lift the atmosphere of your home.
Get rid of heavy furniture and accessories
If you’re looking to prepare your home for a new season, the last thing you want is heavy furniture taking up all the space. Take inventory of your home and pick out decor items and furniture that are unnecessary or detract from the theme you’re going for.
Repositioning and replacing furniture pieces can also help improve light and air circulation while giving your home a new look.
Natural lighting has immense aesthetic appeal. Changing seasons offer you an opportunity to bring in as much natural lighting as you can into your home. Move some furniture around to see what arrangement lets in the most light.
Replace candles and lamps with bright bulbs; if you don’t get a lot of natural light, you can hang up some mirrors to reflect what little light that comes in.
Add some greenery
Just like natural lighting, greenery has a way of elevating the look of any space with little effort. Give your home a fresh new look by adding some plants in every room. It doesn’t matter if you have a green thumb or not.
Cacti, spider plant, peace lily, and snake plants are just some of the various indoor plants that don’t require constant maintenance. Give your home a taste of the outdoors and embrace green living with this new season.
Add new scents
How your house smells is just as important as how it looks. This summer, freshen up your home with some clean floral scents or citrus fragrance. From scented candles to air fresheners, live flowers and scented oils, you have a range of options to choose from.
Lighting, scents, and colors are relevant aspects of every home design project. Give your house a fresh new look and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of your summer-ready home.
