Hermanus Interior Design Company ~ Get Ready for Summer!
The perfect time to spruce up your home is when the new summer season arrives and the sun comes out. We all get complacent looking at the same furniture and furnishings day in and day out so the change in season is the perfect opportunity to give your home a quick makeover.
Here are some tips on how to brighten your house or holiday home and create a living space that captures the meaning of summer:
Summer is all about out with the old and in with the new. Winter cushions, throws and other heavy fabrics must make way for bright colours and light fabrics such as linen, cotton and silk. Choose bright colours, florals, stripes and prints to inject some energy and colour into your living space.
Besides changing cushions and throws you could add a bright and colourful rug to your living room while leaving your main items of furniture neutral. Also try moving pictures to hang in different spaces ~ it is one of the quickest and easiest ways to make a room look and feel different.
Introducing a new theme will refresh tired interiors so have a sofa or armchair recovered with a vibrant fabric in a striking pattern, bold colours or a floral design. Seaside candy stripes will send you straight into summer mode and are the perfect decorative touch for a summer look.
Move away from cosy winter interiors by decluttering and rearranging your home. Get rid of old, unwanted items to create a feeling of space in your home which in turn will aso enable more light to enter your windows and keep your house looking fresh.
Brighten your home by swapping carpet for light wooden or tiled flooring as these floorings will reflect the light in summer . Add sheer curtains or light wooden blinds to boost the amount of natural light in the room.
Finally, bring the outdoors in! Throw open the patio doors and windows and fill your home with fresh flowers which are guaranteed to create a real summer aroma and beautiful summer setting.
