When I hear the word ‘Summer’, my mind conjures up images of clear and sunny skies, long hours of sunshine and late sunsets, a radiant palette of colorful plants and flowers, and lazy days (once the workday concludes, of course). If your imagination evokes such similar visuals for you as well, why not decorate your surroundings to reflect those happy Summertime themes?
Decorating for Summer expands upon what we’ve previously covered in our Spring Season Home Decor Trends blog entry from last March. Tiles, pastels, and jewel-tones in; oversized furniture, brushed metals, and imitation marble out. Let’s take a quick look at some simple decor accessories you can add to your domicile to help bring out that Summertime flair.
DEMDACO wall art from their Studio B and Kelly Rae Roberts collections add tasteful splashes of color and are an excellent accompanying accent piece to dusty shale, eggshell, or light driftwood-colored walls. Abstract prints project a fashionable and bohemian style while floral-shaped ornamental cutouts emphasize the celebration of nature during the Summer months.
Nautical and beach-themed accent rugs by Homefires Rugs brings the spirit of the seashores to any home, regardless of location. You can live on tranquil beachfront property or in a trendy urban townhouse; add one of these oceanic accent rugs to your home and you’ll swear you’ll be able to smell the salt in the air and hear the seagull calls overhead. Available in popular 22” X 34” sizes or 21” X 60” area dimensions.
Rejuvenate, revive, and restore dry and tired wood surfaces in your home with The Real Milk Paint Company’s collection of all-natural, non-VOC (volatile organic compound) finishing oils and topcoats. Unlike most other commercial brands, The Real Milk Paint Company prides themselves in creating non-toxic, environmentally-friendly biodegradable compounds that are pure and without additional lacquers and synthetic varnishes that can mask the true beauty of the natural woodgrain. Choose from hemp oil, raw tung oil, and soapstone sealer wax.
