Summer is upon us, and it is time to give a makeover to our house! The living room is the heart of any house and therefore, requires the most attention. It is the place where you can sit down with your guests, so you have to make a good impression.
Summer season means that every decision you make should contribute towards making your room airy and fresh. From the colors to the texture to the furniture of your living room, you have to give a summery touch to all the elements.
Here are some creative ideas for you to make your living room summer ready.
Choose a Fresh Color Scheme
The colors you choose for your living room will define the summer mood. I believe in selecting fresh colors and love the lemon-yellow!
You cannot refresh a design without adding a touch of color. Using the brightness of citrus fruits, paint your walls in colors like lime greens, sunny yellows, and tangy oranges. Choose your rugs and cushions with the same shades.
Add Some Texture
Do you notice how in winters we fill our rooms with woolen blankets and comforters? As soon as you enter a room, you can feel the chill of winter and want to snuggle in your blanket. Decorate your room in a way that commemorates the seasonal change. For summer, buy sheer curtains for your windows to let the summer breeze inside.
Carpets are a necessary part of any house. But in summer, we recommend choosing a rug instead of a carpet. The bare part of the flooring will neutralize some of the heat. A gorgeous rug in the middle of your living room can elevate the entire décor!
Bring In Nature
When you think about summer, what comes into mind? The greenery, colorful flowers, and the beaches! While you cannot go live in a forest or on a beach, you can bring those natural elements inside the house.
Summer season emphasizes the outdoors, and bringing plants inside will completely transform your living room. Choose the plants that you love, and ones which can thrive indoors. If you don’t know much about plants, choose the ones that have a light, airy feel in their leaves.
If you want to go one step further, use seashells in your décor. Take a handful of seashells and paint them in different colors. Stack them up in an empty jar, with sand at the bottom, and it will make a beautiful decoration piece for your central table.
Natural Fiber Pendant Lamps
No one likes a dark and gloomy living room, especially in summer. Lamps will never go old, and there is a large variety of them available in the market as well. There are floor lamps, table lamps, ceiling lamps and many more.
However, keeping in mind the spirit of summer, you can consider buying string lights or pendant lamps to introduce a whimsical element to your décor. If you can find pendant lamps made of natural fiber, such as wicker, it will look beautiful. These are casual fixtures that are practical and make you feel warm and relaxed.
A fantastic way to bring in light and reflection in your house is by adding mirrors. Mirrors are one of the most practical and popular accessories when it comes to home décor. They can make any dull place look bright.
If you have a small living room, adding a mirror will make it appear larger and airy as well. Whether you go for a traditional circular shape or a square shape mirror on the wall, or a floor length mirror, this accent piece goes beyond beach style and completes the look of any room.
Geometric patterns and prints have been trending lately. A geometrical pattern has its own enigma and can make anything look interesting. It can be a pillow or a piece of artwork or a sofa with a graphic geometric pattern. In any case, playing with these shapes can bring out the fun during the season.
If you are feeling the vibes of summer design, choose a bold geometric furniture piece. Wood or wicker chairs are considered summery. The best thing about them is that they can work in any environment, whether it is a contemporary living room or a traditional one.
Even if you don’t have time to redo your living room entirely, these décor ideas will spice up your space! Happy Decorating!
