6 Decorating Tips for Spring and Summer

April 07, 2016

Transitioning from winter to the warmer months is a great opportunity to make some minor changes to your home. We love that you can change as little or as much as you like -- and changes in decoration can help your spaces feel fresh and revitalized for spring and summer. Here are some tips:


1. Switch out your bedding.

You may want to use lightweight, airy fabrics in the warmer months. The duvet cover on your bed right now may no longer be necessary. We also recommend choosing colors for your bedding that are light and bright (shades of white, grey, teal, or yellow are good choices).

2. Update your floors.

We don't necessarily mean replacing your hardwood or tile flooring. Instead, replace carpets (both indoor and outdoor) with those that are colorful and bright. We like the idea of adding geometric or floral patterns.

3. Add plantlife.

By filling your home with green plantlife, you automatically merge indoor and outdoor space. As trees and flowers blossom outside, the same can happen indoors. You may also want to consider getting herbs for your kitchen.

4. Update outdoor space.

You may not want to replace all of your outdoor furniture and accessories. However, you can replace small things like cushions, pillows, rugs, and even outdoor silverware and glassware. Consider adding a string of tea lights for an extra effect.

5. Update artwork.

You can update the visual appeal of your home by either purchasing new artwork or switching around photographs, prints, and paintings that you already have. Artwork can add an extra pop of color to a room, or help integrate all of its visual elements.

6. Add a new coat of paint. 

If you're feeling particularly adventurous, you might want to refresh your walls with a new paint color. Colors we love right now include hues of grey, muted pastels, and jewel tones.
