Summer has arrived, bringing fabulous weather and the opportunity for a new beginning. One way to embrace the changes and sense of lightness that comes with this season is by simply editing the things you have in your home, or by adding something different. Here are some ideas to help make you and your home feel like new:
Greet Them with Colour: A great way to refresh your home is by giving your front door a paint job. Why not try a bright and cheerful colour? Shades of blue remind us of clear skies. Yellow is also a colour we’ve been seeing on the front door. Whatever hue you choose, being greeted by a gorgeous colour is guaranteed to brighten up your days.
Less is More: If you have lived in your home for a while, you’ve probably collected a lot of stuff. Eventually our homes can become cluttered if we do not manage our belongings properly. Summer is the perfect time to de-clutter our lives by removing items we don’t need or that do not fit in with the look we wish to create. No need to throw anything out, though. Why not donate items to local charities and have peace of mind knowing that you are helping improve the lives of others?
Basket Case: If there are things you just can’t bear to part with despite your desire for a less cluttered look, store items in attractive baskets with easy access.
Floating on Thin Air: If you are planning a kitchen renovation, open shelving is a great option for a light and airy ambience. Open shelves can also be added to other areas of the home to display treasured collections and art.
Lighten Up: Large coffee tables sometimes overpower a room and can make it feel smaller. Why not open up your space by replacing your large coffee table with a few small tables or stools? They can easily be moved around and will make the room feel more spacious.
All Together Now: Grouping vases, candles, vintage boxes or other items gives them more of a presence than if they are dispersed individually around a room. Displaying beautiful decor items together also makes a room feel less cluttered.
On the Bench: If you have an open layout with kitchen barstools close to the dining table, adding a bench instead of chairs is much easier on the eyes because it doesn’t compete with the stools.
Picture This: Adding something new to your interior such as this romantic wallpaper from Minakanilab will give your space a new vibe. This paper is like a mural and is printed in custom sizes to fit your wall.
Break out the Bubbly: Blown-glass bubble chandeliers are hot right now and they are perfect for creating a light and airy look for summer.
Now put on some music, throw open your windows, sit back, and enjoy the breeze.
