Revamping your home for Summer
Summer is fast approaching so it’s time for spring cleaning and a home revamp; whether this is a fresh paint job, new furniture or updated fittings. Here are some of the latest decor trends that are easy to execute without needing to renovate.
Pops of colour
Brighten up the home with splashes of vibrant colours. An easy way of redecorating a space is to get some colourful prints and switch them up every year. Or if you’re chasing a large statement piece, some bold furniture could be a good option- decorate a colourful couch with some lush cushions and you have yourself a unique space. For something a bit different, a paint job for your front door could be the way to go. Make your home stand out with a splash of green or yellow, guests are sure to find the right house!
Summer is all about the outdoors and sunshine, but for those days when you can’t leave the home, a sunny spot inside can be just as satisfying. Lightness and brightness throughout your home will embrace the summer vibes. Our Thermalite Plantation Shutters are a great option for controlling light in the home. For those nice sunny mornings, you can let the sunshine in, and still be able to block out the warmer midday sun. Adding shutters is an easy way to change up a space; they can add a sense of design as well as help you save on your electricity bill.
Summer and nautical themes tend to come hand in hand. When it comes to executing this theme, try to avoid over-kill; there doesn’t have to be a life ring hanging on the wall. Try approaching the theme with navy and white colour-ways, hints of marine stripes and navel flag prints. Opting for the nautical theme can bring a beachside retreat to the every day, even when the beach is nowhere near.
Summer calls for breathable textiles, not just in clothing, but also in your home. Wools, cotton and linens are breathable fabrics that make a space look fresh and clean. When the Brisbane summer hits, you don’t want to be sitting on a leather couch or a furry rug; switch up your space with some linen lounges and timber flooring. These textiles are not only light and fresh, but they are also durable and will age well.
Sustainability has taken over every industry, the need to make more environmentally friendly choices drives many consumers’ purchase decisions, including home decor. Including sustainable, handmade products in your home can bring a sense of nature into the home, plus it’s a great way to contribute to yours and the earth’s wellbeing. Due to the rise in demand for sustainable and ethical products, there are many ways to incorporate this into your home; from compost bins to up-cycled furniture, to recycled plastic blinds.
