With the summer on the horizon, it’s a beautiful opportunity to revamp the look of your home. It’s always nice to include seasonal flair and make it look gorgeous for the warmer months. Consider decorating your home with these five details.

Window Treatments

Window Treatments

Especially during the summer months, natural light is such a beautiful sight to behold. Let the sunshine in with stunning window treatments. Layer sheer curtains for a delicate and chic look. Install pristine shutters so that when you’re ready to get some privacy, you can quickly achieve that. Plus, shutters keep your home cool in the summertime.

Greenery

When the summertime comes, everything is green and in full bloom. Bring a little bit of that experience indoors with indoor plants. Succulents are low-maintenance plants and can easily evoke a chic, summertime look. If you don’t like the idea of working on plant upkeep, pick up a bouquet of flowers when you do your grocery shopping. Throw the flowers in a vase and call it a day.

Centerpieces

Create beautiful centerpieces with faux greenery and candles. You can use anything from a pretty wicker basket to a strategically placed mirror. Place the centerpieces on the coffee table in the living room, the dining room table and any side tables.

Wreaths

First impressions are lasting impressions. To leave a great first impression, greet your guests with beautiful decor in the form of wreaths. There are tons of tutorials on Pinterest and YouTube that can walk you through the materials you need to create a beautiful wreath. If you’d like to make a floral wreath, you’d need to use faux flowers. Though they’re faux flowers, choose seasonal ones like sunflowers, dahlias, and marigolds.

Rope-Inspired Decor

Especially around the summertime, ropes make their way into the decor. Something about ropes reminds a lot of people of the beach. The beach is a popular summer destination, so this is a perfect way to infuse a summer detail into your home’s look. Purchase a few clear vases from the local dollar store. The other materials you’ll need are a rope, hot glue, and a hot glue gun. Use the glue gun to apply the hot glue to the vase. Then, wrap the rope around the vase so it’ll stick. Use the vase to hold flowers, sand, decorative rocks or a candle.

Thankfully, none of these ideas require a ton of heavy lifting. Each of these projects only takes a few hours to finish. While some of these ideas are versatile enough to keep all year, the others are easy to store once the fall comes. Each summer, you can dust them off and enjoy their beauty again.
