Summer 2017 is but a month away, and that means one thing; it’s time to give your home a summer vibe. Every summer, we find ourselves drawn to bright colors and patterns. We seek refuge in lively tones that seem to give our homes a soft breeze.
Now with summer so close, some people begin to worry about how they can welcome the season into their home. The trick here is to keep it simple, there is no need to change the furniture and repaint all the walls. It can be as simple as adding a few cushions here and there or even having a vase of fresh flowers. Here are a few ideas to get you started for summer 2017.
The Color Green
According to interior design icons, green is the color to choose this summer. Have your pick from any shade of the color, from lime green all the way to emerald green. Maybe paint a single wall, buy a beautiful green rug, or even some glasses for your dinner table. This works best if you don’t want green to overpower your home. Add small doses here and there, whether in the kitchen, living room, or even guest bathroom.
These lovely patterns always find a way to come back into our homes. Why wouldn’t they? They can easily transform your home into a vibrant and exotic summer destination. Since you may not want tropical patterns to follow you into winter, then stick to wallpaper and cushions. They can be easily changed later on and will definitely summer up your home. An easy-to-follow piece of advice is to invest in a plain sofa. This way, you will be able to constantly change the cushions depending on the current trends. It will also give you the chance to constantly change how your home looks.
A Bohemian touch goes a long way in preparing your home for summer 2017. Giving your home a Bohemian remake is easier than you’d expect. All it takes is a mix of colors, patterns, and textures across the house. Go for some vibrant colored cushions with a vase of fresh colorful flowers and maybe even some bold patterns. However, don’t overwhelm yourself. Choose a corner in the living room to boast the Bohemian feel. It will liven up your home while keeping it contained since it is very easy to lose control when it comes to mixing and matching.
Another form of patterns that will take this summer by storm is geometric patterns. Their beauty lies in the sheer simplicity that adds a touch of elegance and liveliness to any area. Lines, geometric designs, or triangles will all give your home a refreshing look. You will find that many paintings, rugs, and cushions are available in these patterns. Moreover, their reflection of ancient cultures will give your home an authentic feel that is comforting and trendy.
This fascinating metal will definitely make an appearance in summer 2017. Experts predict that bronze will shine in a variety of home accessories such as vases, lamps, even decorating bowls. You can have these accessories in any room of your home, or even outside in the garden. It will easily warm up the area and provide an inviting ambiance to your home. Bronze compliments almost all decorating styles. This means that a small touch of bronze will redesign your home without forcing you to redecorate the entire area.
Neutral tones never seem to go away, and for a good reason too. They are calming and work beautifully with different colors and styles. White, beige, camel, blush pink, and gray in all its tones will dominate this summer. Feel free to add large doses of these softer tones, as they will not overpower or dull out your home. Furthermore, they will allow you to play around with patterns, colors, and textures.
Marble and Brass
More suited for kitchens and bathrooms, marble and brass will make their way through summer 2017. If you feel like completely redecorating, then this is what you should go for. White marble and brass will give off a beautiful contrast with a fresh summery vibe. If, however, you do not want to go through the hassle, then opt for smaller decorative pieces. They will give the same effect in smaller doses and also provide your home with a changed and improved look.
