Let’s Decorate for Summer!
Posted by suburbanfurniture
Hopefully you lightened up your house’s winter atmosphere when spring arrived, but summer’s here and it’s even airier. Summer means color and sunshine and fun; all things you want your home to reflect. You can create the utmost inviting atmosphere for your abode without breaking the bank with our help. Just read on!
Living rooms are made for relaxation and it’s the place where you and your guests spend the majority of your time, so update yours with a fresh new look that’s ideal for laid-back living during the summer months. Fresh white walls are the epitome of summer style allowing you to experiment with different colors and themes against a works-with-everything backdrop. While you’re experimenting, get rid of any heavy fabrics, such as curtains and replace them with something that will let the sunlight stream through. Nothing says summer quite like a sun filled room.
Blue skies, fields of flowers and all the sunlight you can handle can serve as inspiration to add bright colors to your home. Just one piece of furniture repainted or reupholstered in a vibrant shade could completely change the mood of your living room, giving it a more positive feel. Add a floral touch with a chair with a flowered pattern. Keep flooring neutral; bare floorboards or a pale carpet will work with any scheme (and then you can add a colorful rug or the such!).
Looking for a change in the bedroom? How about a DIY project for a little color infusion? Turn an unused table into a pair of stylish and useful nightstands in a bright, cheerful hue. Want to brighten up your kids room or even just a hallway? Do it in a snap with a bookcase. Add unexpected color to a room by painting the inside of a bookcase in a hot hue.
The colors and patterns you choose for not just your walls and accessories but your furniture are important to the overall look and feel of the effect you’re going for, so keep that in mind when picking out new furniture. We have an incredible myriad of looks and styles available, always reasonably priced, and we’re always available to help you pick your new favorite item. So if you’re doing a little summer redecorating, browse our website or visit one of our stores – we’ll have you relaxing in your own personal oasis in no time!
