Summer in the Greater Boston area is beautiful, and you can enjoy it even more when your home is perfectly set up for the season. If you’re hoping for a new look for your home, there are a few simple ways to switch up your décor to get that casual, cool summer feel you’re looking for. These tips will help you get started.
Let the Light In
Now is the time to take advantage of the extra sunshine during summer. Pull back your curtains, or even replace any heavy drapery with lighter options, such as curtains made of sheer material. Put the spotlight on your windows and doors by setting up furniture and décor around them, rather than around the fireplace like you might have done in the winter.
Make Your Home Feel Larger
Simply putting away the fluffy blankets you used in colder weather will open some space in your house. You can also make any room appear larger and more open by painting the walls a light color, preferably the same shade as the curtains since this creates an illusion that the space is bigger. Putting mirrors on the walls can help, can transform your home from cozy to light and spacious for the summer, as well.
Set Up Your Outdoor Space for Entertaining
It’s easy to enjoy the summer when you have lots of seating and inviting décor outside. Whether you have a patio, balcony, or big backyard, make sure you have a few cushioned chairs, gliders, or even outdoor couches for guests to sit on when they visit you. You can add an outdoor rug to put under a patio table, and then set up some bright colored plastic plates, cups, and little umbrellas for drinks. Consider putting up a string of lights or hanging paper lanterns to create a festive atmosphere for those warm summer nights.
