Get Your Home Summer Ready
From choosing natural fabrics for your furnishings to keeping potted plants, there’s so much you can do to perk up your home
Summers are long and sweaty but here are a few things you can do to get your home ready for the season.
Pick light and natural fabrics for furnishings, such as cotton and linen, that will lend a natural, breezy feel to your home. Go for citrus or pastel hues for your bedsheets and bedcovers. If you want to add a dash of colour to your living space, pick some colourful cushion covers and throws for your sofa.
Plants can breathe life into any living space. Greens are not just soothing to the eye but can also keep your room cool. Choose plants that work as purifiers, improving the indoor air quality. You can go for peace lily or money plant to name a few.
Whether you opt for faux blooms or real, florals are essential to summer décor. If splurging on fresh flowers everyday seems out of the question, you can introduce summer blooms through other decor elements, such as linens, wallpaper or artwork.
Who doesn’t love stepping into a room that smells fresh after a hectic work day? Bring out your scented candles, essential oils and potpourri to make your home smell nice and dewy even in scorching summer. Opt for light, breezy floral smells for this season.
