Beat the Heat with Summer Décor
Refreshing Citrus Colors
Does the idea of bold color schemes make you nervous? This summer has the ideal design alternative! Neutral colors are reigning supreme and can be broken up by pops of color that bring out the natural beauty of a home and furnishings. Lime green and other citrus colors are making a comeback, so light up your room and draw attention with pillows, blankets and large rugs to let the summer times flow. Leave your worries about having to completely redo a room or growing tired of seeing bold hues everywhere. Just sit back, relax and usher in the season.
All that Brass
While metallic colors are still popular, copper and brass will be the metals of choice for summer. Sailing from its origins in maritime design, this trend navigates an ocean breeze into your home while imitating the golden warmth of the sun in more muted hues. This sea-faring, summer design is simple to jump on board with by swapping out furniture knobs or adding accents to existing designs with copper and brass knickknacks, lamps, frames or mirrors. For an added bonus, these tones mix and match well with everything, so even as the season changes, you won’t have to switch your decorations out.
Gone are the days of DIY decorations and how-tos. This year’s summer decorations revolve around the artisan and unique. Celebrate your personality with antiques and handcrafted items around your home. Keep it simple by using hand-blown glass fixtures as accents or small, abstract statues as center pieces to add character to a room. Or, alternatively, go big and make a statement with a large, distinctive wall clock or one-of-a-kind piece of furniture created just for you! Summer is about being free, so don’t be afraid to show off your wild side.
