Summer Interior Decoration Tips and Tricks
Summer is coming our way and with it we have a chance to decorate our homes to fit with the new and lovely season we all love so much. The following tips will give you some ideas about the things you can do to make your home beautiful and unforgettable. Let’s start with the most obvious one:
• How to use flower decorations
To begin with, you can start out with a flower-themed party with your friends where they bring you some flowers of matching colors to create a small garden with group efforts. You can use that to make your home beautiful as summer rolls around, especially when you combine that with a great meal for your friends during the party. On the other hand, you can always put up flowers of your own if you don’t feel like dealing with the hassle of a party. Whether you plan on using natural, real flowers or their close imitations is up to you, however the real thing will have a more lasting impact on the psyche, since they also carry their unique, natural scent as well. Different flowers may invoke fragments of different memories you connect with, such as weddings, honeymoons and other special occasions and places you’ve visited. Use the power of floral scents to rekindle these memories and bring them back out of the corners of your mind, back into the light of day.
• Decoration through painting
You can paint the ceiling of your rooms either white, gray or even pale blue. This will easily imitate the outside world, so it will also help better the mood and make the rooms look more natural. On the other hand, you can go a step beyond that as you may use paint to create murals of your own, as well as using stencils for increased effect. You would be surprised at the amount of freedom given by such a simple project, especially if you let yourself explore the limits of your imagination. In the end, the choice of decoration is entirely yours; however you will need to stick to a style that fits the rest of your home appropriately. You could even combine different colors that complement each other in the process to enhance the overall looks of a room.
• Reorganize the bookcases
You can begin by simply sorting your books by subject and size, and then you can remove any ripped or worn-out book covers. Try fixing them if you can and if that doesn’t work, then you can always try to rebind them if you can. Line up your books in a pattern alternating between horizontal and vertical positions to ensure you break the monotony of traditional bookcases. You can combine the books with some minor decorations of your own, such as statuettes and other art that fit the overall style of the room you have in mind. If you feel you want to reorganize your entire collection of books in a way that would allow you to find things with ease, consider coming up with a cataloging system of your own and an inventory list of what you have. That should only be the case if you have too many books anyways. If you are blessed with such a wonderful collection of paper media, then you can greatly benefit from such an organizational approach.
• How to make creative use of wallpapers
Once again, depending on what you feel like doing and how far you’re willing to go in your projects, a change of wallpapers can be a great way of bringing out a sense of summer inside your home. Choose natural colors, floral patterns and similar choices to get things looking just like have stepped inside your home as well as the outside. You can even place wallpapers on some of the older pieces of furniture that don’t look great anymore. This will allow you to keep them while they also look good and fitting the overall mood of your home. Colors such as summer greens, sunny yellows and oranges can be a truly amazing way of bringing a fresh, lovely perspective in your home that overrides the usual white or other boring colors that dominate most households. Use these bold colors to enrich your environment and to bring out the best of summer in your home with a few simple touches.
• How to mix modern and classic elements
You can add a modern piece of furniture to a more traditional room for added effect as long as it fits the patterns of style you have chosen. Remember to combine that with some natural elements such as potted trees and plants together with some contemporary furniture that befits your home a lot more than the previous setup. You can add elements from many different cultures together, as long as you find a way for them to blend in seamlessly. This will add to the originality of the place, allowing you to show off fragments of your personality and interests in the process.
