With the weather being even more unpredictable than usual this year, from sudden heatwaves to overcast afternoons. It’s been hard to enjoy the summer sun without wondering if it’s here to stay. All is not lost though. Instead of worrying about your outside interior why not start introducing into your home interior? With a little floral print here or a funky homeware piece there. Which is why I have teamed up with Amtico to put together six ways you can bring summer into your home interior.
Bring the outside in
If you can’t get outside as much as you would like this summer, start bringing the outside in! Introduce either flowers or shrubs to your inside interior to give each room a fresh natural scent and a feeling of lush richness. If flowers aren’t your thing you can always experiment with fresh or artificial trees. Transform your room from a dull living room into an exotic paradise with palm trees or even hanging vines.
Paint your doors
Paint either your back or front door a unique summer colour that will cheer you up every time you get home. If bright colours aren’t an option for your home, you could always choose a more pastel design or buy a summery doormat to brighten up your day.
Print out your holiday photos
Ever scroll through your holiday photos and think I’d love to frame that? Why don’t you then? Whether it’s a cute family/couple photo or a picturesque landscape of the rolling white sands of your last beach holiday? If you don’t want to use your own holiday photos why not use some trendy cactus or cocktail prints to give off that holiday vibe.
Pick a theme
By choosing a theme you make it easier to plan and design your interior. Why not experiment with different themes throughout the house? Make your bathroom a seaside haven by painting the walls a sea colour hue or transforming your conservatory into a green room full of a plethora of exotic pans and blooming shrubs.
Let in the sunshine
Is there anything better than the feeling of a cool breeze across your face on a hot summers day? Just because your inside doesn’t mean you can feel this benefit too. Pull back your curtains and throw your windows open. Alternatively, Direct Blinds have got a huge selection of blinds for all areas of your house meaning you’ve got easy control over light and privacy in your home.
Have a little clean-up
Just because it’s called spring cleaning doesn’t mean it only has to be done in spring! Summer is the ideal to get your cleaning gloves out and give your house the spruce up it deserves. A fresh and clean house paired with the natural cool breeze from outside is enough to transform a stuffy house into a cool and airy home.
There you have a quick and simple guide to help you bring summer into your home!
