6 Summer Home Design Ideas to Brighten the Place Up

Summer is coming! It’ll be here in the next few months or so, and with that in mind you want your home to match, right? Here we have 6 summer home design ideas that will help you to brighten the place up, so you can use pattern, colour, and quirky accessories with confidence. Enjoy!

Learn How to Create a Focal Wall

Focal walls instantly make a room look brighter and more interesting. I believe that almost every room in the home should have one! All you have to do is a bit of research to see how you’d like to create yours. You can do it with wallpaper, paint, artwork…just about anything. The goal is to make that wall the first thing everybody sees when they step foot into your home.

Use the Colour Wheel to Incorporate Different Shades

Worried about mixing colours and getting it right? Use the colour wheel for a failsafe way to incorporate different shades! You’ll be able to see which colours match beautifully, and which should be left well alone.

Install Windows That Let in a Lot of Light

If you don’t already have great windows, it’s definitely worth investing in some. tulsarenew.com explain that good windows can make a world of difference to the home. They can keep warmth in, make it cooler, let in lots of light, and make a room look more spacious and airy. Natural light is good for us, so you should try to get as much of it as you can, especially in summer. Utilise your windows to do just that!

Install a Bright New Door

What could be more fun and inviting than a bright new door? It’s the first thing people will see when they come to your home, and it gives a nice quirky feel before they’ve even stepped in. Having dull coloured doors just isn’t cool – go for bright blues, greens, purple…maybe even pink if you want your house to give off a feminine vibe!

Use Patterned, Bright, Quirky Accessories

My favourite tip of all; add patterns, bright colours, and quirkiness in the form of accessories. This type of thing will instantly give your home an individual feel. Mix up your pillows like in the picture shown here for a cool, different look. Pair colours you wouldn’t expect to see together, but make them work. Use accessories from different eras and themes to give a fun vibe. There are a ton of things you can do, so just use your imagination!

Add Life With Plants

A summer house isn’t a summer house without plants. I mean real, living, breathing plants. They instantly add life, beauty, and help to purify the air. They’re real life art. Put them in cool vases to make them a lovely accessory for any room. If you’re allergic, fake plants are acceptable.

I hope you love these 6 ideas and use them to make your home look bright and beautiful in time for the summer fun!

See you next time!
