Tips on Decorating for Summer

Open shades and windows. The first thing you want to do is let all of the natural light in that you can. You want to get rid of the gloom of the winter and welcome summer indoors. The best way to do that is by opening up your windows and your curtains and allowing the light to flood through the room during the daylight hours.

Include natural elements. You can bring a lot of life into a space by including some plants. If you do not have a green thumb, even an artificial plant can give a very similar feeling. Also, you can opt for smaller plants that do not require a lot of care such as succulents. Find something that works for you and bring some more life in your space as a result.

Rearrange furniture around your windows. During the fall and winter, if you have a fireplace, you are likely using that as the focal point in the room. However, during the summer, your windows should be the focal point. Consider rearranging your furniture to face the windows and all of the natural light that you will have flowing through them.

Bring in some summer scents. To bring a multi-dimensional change to your space, consider swapping out some of your winter scents for ones that are more summer-based. You can do this with candles very easily and should look for scents such as Ocean Breeze or Cucumber Melon.
