7 Tips to Brighten Up Your Home This Summer

Farewell Spring, Hello Summer!

Here are seven surefire ways to bring a little summer to your home; follow these tips to get the light, fun, and welcoming ambiance to your home.

Add Mirrors

Mirrors are great pieces of décor that can enhance your space while giving the illusion of space. Mirrors can be great as they can not only brighten a room, but there are so many styles and designs that they act as artwork on their own.

Allow Natural Light In

With the warm weather around the corner, why not let the sun in? No matter how big or small your windows are, allowing natural light can enhance parts of your home and be a great mood booster. Of course, temperatures can get extremely hot and sometimes uncomfortable in the summer; you can apply coatings on your window to help control and regulate the heat without losing out on natural light.

Lighten Your Décor and Accessories

While navy and dark colors are great for decorating, summer is where you want to change your darks for light and neutral tones. This means looking at using beige or even pastels as a form of décor. If you have a majority of pieces that are large and dark in color, even adding an accent of light colors to them can significantly brighten and enhance your space.

Using neutral or summer-colored pillows can be a great way to enhance the space.

Incorporate Flowers and Plants into Your Décor

Live plants and floral décor are great ways to bring summer indoors. If you have a flower bed or garden, why not cut some fresh flowers and place them around the house to liven your space and add that splash of color.

Are you feeling bold? Why not incorporate floral prints on your wall or as part of your accessories and accent furniture? Floral prints are a great way to welcome summer but also add that splash of color.
