One of the most effective ways to add summer style to your home is to coordinate the colors you’ve chosen for your decor. Choose shades that work together. Take a color palette from a vibrant print design and match the colors. Whatever color scheme you choose for the rest of your home is alright, as long as it complements your wall colors.

Summer is also all about the opportunity to create space and light in your home. Now is the time to swap heavy drapes for airy and breezy curtains. Scented candles also work wonders — stick to natural waxes and look for scents that match the casual feel you’re trying to achieve.

Another way to take your interiors up a notch is through patterns. Prints such as sailor stripes, lush leaves, quirky sea creatures, or luscious fruit are excellent choices. They add a bit of fun and playfulness to your home.

The warm weather lends itself to the softness of interior design, of being surrounded in relaxed comfort. Accents in the form of feathery and cool textures add to this sense of comfort. Nothing too rough, heavy, or warm to the touch. The effect that soft surfaces have on your interior design is an easygoing, welcoming, and soothing atmosphere.

    In the summer months, I love to take advantage of the extended daylight hours by allowing more natural light into my residence. It brightens the rooms and invokes such an inviting ambiance. The addition of the natural light from outside also provides the illusion that the residence is bigger. Great tips.

    Adding colour into the home for the summer can be lovely and make a welcome change. It is so easy to do too which helps.

    We have been embracing the natural light, but I fear everything will become too dark when it hits wintertime.

    I’ve always been drawn to the bright, white interiors with few statement pieces of color for added pop during the warm weather. It brightens the space and creates a happy environment. Great ideas here!

    I’ve actually been changing out a few small things… a rug here, a pillow there… to make my house more light and colorful! It’s amazing what a small change can do for a room.

    I’m back. Just showing my SIL the patterns in that photo towards the end. She has a southwest feel in her design at her home but wants to switch to more reddish brown that what she has now.

    I am loving all of these interior looks. I especially love the light color scheme with some wicker and lots of green plants. That hammock is everything too!
