9 summer decorating ideas

In the summer, days are longer and brighter, making it a suitable time to make changes to home decor.

Here are a few tricks and ideas to transform your home this summer:

1. Decorate with flowers
The flowers provide a touch of colour and taste that go well with the summer. It is best to place flowers at strategic points that give fresh feeling throughout the house. Use various colours including yellow, red, orange or pink, among others. Another great idea is to add tropical plants that give an exotic tone to your home. Flowers and plants provide a feeling of closeness with nature.

2. Experiment with colours
In summer, you should use light colours to create a cool atmosphere and increase the brightness. A good solution may be to match the white walls with paintings or brightly coloured furniture, along with chairs and tables painted in red, green or blue.

3. Decorate your home with light posts
They are a decorative feature, helping to create a very typical, relaxed and romantic summer atmosphere. They are easy to install and can be found in different types of materials. 

4. Place hanging baskets
They are a simple decor element, which give a unique touch.

5. Free up the space
Do not fill your home with clutter. The best way is to use some simple furniture that allows you to walk in the rooms without stumbling on anything.

6. Candles
Candles are a very original decorative element. They can be in different colours, bring serenity and can be combined with glass to create very unique environments.

7. Rugs
Although they say that rugs are not compatible with summer because of the warmth they provide, but the truth is that there are rugs made with lighter material making them perfect for the summer. These include cotton or natural fibre rugs. Do not forget that rugs provide much style and elegance to a home.

8. Change the curtains
Solid and heavy fabrics do not go well with the summer heat so it is best to replace them with lighter, translucent fabrics that allow natural light to fill every room in your home.

9. Create refreshing corners
Something as simple as a tray, a bottle and a series of glasses decorated with lemon slices, all placed on a table, whether in the kitchen or outdoors, can create a very appropriate place for summer.
