5 Easy Decor Ideas for Spring and Summer

Spring and summer are all about relaxing and enjoying the seasons. From cooling interior color palettes to opting for casual interiors over the stuffy formal ones, spring and summer decor ideas are easy.  Do you have a summer beach house, or would you like your apartment to FEEL like a summer beach house? Either way, the warm outdoors and cool evening breezes make your home the optimal place to entertain and relax. Try these easy spring/summer decor ideas and take advantage of all that the seasons have to offer.

FURNITURE: Dark and muted tones are perfect for fall and winter, but spring and summer scream for light and airy colors.  Use removable slipcovers, or decorative throws to bring bursts of color and brightness. Prefer whites and neutrals? White and khaki slipcovers are casual but can be dressed up with formal throw pillows in an instant.

DRAPERY: When you want to bring in the cool night air, and keep out the hot summer sun use curtains instead of drapery. Drapery material is heavy and dark, while curtains paired with sheers can give you versatile flexibility in the spring and summer months. If you prefer to savor the views, and not cover up the windows use valances. Valances in light textures and colors will leave your windows looking finished, with an obstructed view.

VIEWS: What better way to welcome spring into your home, than looking at a breathtaking view? Maximize your furniture placement by facing it towards your ocean view, pool, or lush green yard. Your enjoyment of your home is based on your emotions. If opening windows to hear nature makes you feel good, do it!  Don’t love the view from your windows? Consider buying a painting or wall decor that you love the look and feel of.

KID FRIENDLY: Let’s face it, kids are out of school and summer means kids around the house! Make sure fabrics and slipcovers are machine washable, and are casual and fun! Make summertime arts and crafts projects with seashells, pine cones, and nature inspired finds, which the kids can pick out. Their projects can turn into summer decor that you display proudly around your home!

From spring to summer, the decor is all about finding the right balance between enjoyment, relaxing, and livable interiors. Try these tips around the house and see if you don’t instantly feel like taking the day off to enjoy the fresh look of your home.
