Update Your Couch Pillows and Throw Blankets
Time to toss your neutral colored pillows and throw blankets. Nothing says summer like a vibrant yet color coordinated living room with summer-like prints. They’ll look great paired with fresh flowers on the end table or a colorful rug. Too much color can be overwhelming sometimes so make sure you color coordinate and stay away from prints too different from each other. Try light yellow, light blue and tan.
Use Flowers and Foliage
Flowers are the greatest summer decoration and will look great in any room you decorate it with, but another fun idea is leaves in vases. Anything from banana leaves to palm tree leaves. Foliage is a great and low-maintenance way to add a fresh look to your house If you frequently refresh the water and trim off the bottom of the stem, leaves can live for months!
Rearrange Your Furniture
Rearranging your floor plan and furniture is a perfect way to kick off the new season and make things feel new. Moving your couches and cleaning underneath them, replacing your rug, moving around plants and even trying the TV on a new wall can change the whole feel of the room. Also a great way to keep the house clean and keeping dirt and dust from building up under and behind the furniture for too long.
Colorful accent dishes on the dinner table are great for your next dinner party! Mix bright floral, tropical or nautical-theme dishes with your normal everyday plates and bowls. Try colorful place mats or cloth napkins and make the whole dining room pop.
Nothing better than dining outside on your own porch in the warm summer sun or a picnic in your yard. Eating outside will help you and your family take advantage of more summer quality time and everyone will love it. Keep your decorations ouside colorful to make it fun and add to the summer feeling. Cute porch benches with colorful pillows are perfect for evening dinner’s outside.
Nothing is better when it’s starting to warm up outside than coming home to a fresh, clean and uncluttered home. Grab a magic eraser and go to town on those walls and doors! Spend a weekend this month with the family going through each room and decluttering it.
Bring in New Scents
Swap those old winter candles for something fresh and breezy like a laundry scent or something citrus-y. Your family will love the fresh smell and give it that perfect summer vibe throughout the house. Try colorful candle holders or citrus-y potpourri!
