We hope you enjoyed your Fourth of July, readers! This week’s post is about making your home more bright and summery this season.
Add colorful pillows
Bright cobalt and indigo blues paired with white are always popular and very much in vogue now.
Change up your table settings
Runners, placemats, glasses, and centerpieces can all be customized and coordinated for the summer. Yellows, bright greens, pinks, and vivid blues work well for the season. The reason why all these different colors work together in the picture is because they are all of the same intensity. Bright colors look great outdoors due to the strong light. If you are afraid of using bright shades in your house, indulge yourself on your deck or patio!
Hang summery prints around your home
The art on your walls is another place you can invite summer into your home. You don’t have to completely redo your wall art to make a visual splash; you can select an area of your home to focus on, such as the mudroom, foyer, or entryway to start with.
Update your outdoor furniture to reflect the season
This traditional white wicker sofa was recently transformed by us, simply by recovering the cushions and adding contrasting pillows. There are great options available now for outdoor fabrics, which are not just the predictable stripes and solids.
Bring the outdoors into your home with statement plants
These beautiful and sculptural plants make any room feel more relaxed and inviting. They are from the ficcus family. They need minimal care but should have good daylight. Do not despair if you do not have a green thumb.
You can still enjoy the look with this faux fiddle fig leaf plant by Bunny Williams, which comes in its own stone looking planter.
