Creating Your Summer Living Space

Creating Your Summer Living Space

Hooray summer is on its way! You have just the right amount of time to prepare your interiors for the warmer and brighter weather.

In this post, we will concentrate on your living rooms. Being the prime area in your home for relaxing and socialising, it is important that these spaces are a priority in your summer home improvement projects.

Whether you are in the mood for a big change or just a few upgrades, read on for plenty of summer-friendly ideas.

Summer time furnishings

Looking around your living room, you may have gone for rich and warm tones for the winter months. It might be the right time to put these away for later in the year and resurrect or purchase your summer set of living space furnishings.

Add pops of colour in your cushions, throws, ornaments, etc. You may wish to check out for their selection of home furnishings in beautiful, bright colours. We love the tribal trend that creates a heady mix of bold patterns and vivid tones.

The outdoor-indoor flow

The outdoor and indoor divide is becoming less and less apparent in modern interior design. Especially in the summer, the idea is to create a natural flow between you interiors and exteriors.

This trendy technique can be done in any living space, regardless of whether you have the luxury of glass doors opening out to the garden. Windows should be as clean and as open as possible to maximise the view and light. Sheer, minimalistic blinds and curtains can be used to create this gradual movement.

Bring nature into your living rooms with bursts of fresh flowers. Right now, spring blooms like daffodils and tulips will look perfect. And as the summer sets in, sunflowers and peonies will really help to uplift your interiors. Indoor plants also help to bring indoor and outdoor closer together. A variety of different species presented in mismatched pots will look very interesting.


Fresh walls

Do your walls look dull, dark or tired? If so, the summer light will only emphasise these flaws. A new coat of paint can make any room look much fresher and brighter.

You may wish to stick to your existing colour and just add a fresh coat. Alternatively you might be in the mood for a completely different shade. We advise keeping it light and neutral. That way you can have fun adding pops of colour with your furnishings, without being restricted by the dominating colour in the space.

The feature wall is as popular as ever. If you don’t want to change the look of the entire room, just focus on one wall. Floral wallpaper, a contrasting shade of paint or randomly arranged mirrors or paintings make great statement walls.

Reflective accents

Intensify the sunlight in your living space by including plenty of reflective accessories. Mirror, glass and any other material that is shiny will encourage the sunlight to dance around your living room. Vases, wall mounted mirrors and glass surfaces will help to enhance the light.

Thank you for reading. Have a great time creating your beautiful summer living spaces!
