How To Inject Summer Into Your Home

As May draws into a close, the desire to make sure our homes are ready for summer gets stronger. Suddenly those thick blankets, heavy duvets and seasonal décor touches no longer have a place within our homes. As the seasons change, we always recommend sprucing up your home to reflect this, as little adjustments to your interiors can have a huge impact on your daily mood and uplift your spirit in time for summer. These don’t have to be drastic changes, but small changes that can make a world of difference.

 

Change Your Bed Linen
During the winter it’s all about keeping warm, making sure your duvet is thick and your bed throw even thicker. But come summer, it’s all about keeping cool in the night to ensure a restful sleep. We recommend opting for linen based bed sheets because this natural fibre is breathable and therefore can help you keep cool at night. Stay away from artificial fabrics which can trap heat and keep you hotter.

 

Refresh Your Window Blinds
An inexpensive way to completely transform your rooms during the summer months would be to recover or replacing existing fabrics on your current roller or vertical blinds. This is a really simple interior adjustment that can help bring that summer feeling indoors without costing a fortune. Err away from dark colours and use more appropriate shades like a zesty yellow or bright corals. If you aren’t one for bright colours, try pastel colours for a more toned down look; baby blues, creams etc.

 

Indoor Plants
This is a really simple (and obvious) interior adjustment that can help bring that summer feeling indoors. Most of us will always have plants in doors, but with summer, try to err away for the usual plants you go for. Opt for vibrant, colourful and tall plants that make their presence known. Orchids are a great plant as they require little maintenance, come in a variety of colours and add great height to areas that need a little pick me up.
