How to Brighten Up Your Home This Summer

Summer is the season of fun-filled adventures, unfettered sunshine and relaxing days off. So, if you’re feeling like your home is not entirely reflecting the spirit of the season, take a look at these five amazing tips you can use to brighten up your home this summer.

1. Light, Bright & Breezy Colours

The summer colour palette is always an impressive one, and this year, it is full of fun, light and breezy colours. White is, of course, at the forefront because of its amazing reflective qualities and minimal look. But not far behind are the powder blues, baby pinks, lemon yellows, mint greens and the lightest oak wood accents that can help add a charming, understated elegance in a room and make it feel spacious and bright.

2. Gauzy, See-Through Curtains

Using this natural light to brighten up your home, is of course, the most important staple of the summer season.

You can do so with style by switching your curtains to something lighter for the warmer months. Try hanging sheer, gauzy white curtains on your windows. They’ll create a breezy effect and help echo an airy ambience throughout your home.

3. Mirror Accessories

If you want to brighten up your home in the most literal sense of the word, using mirror accessories to reflect the light from your window or the lighting already in your home is one of the best ways you can do it. This décor technique especially works wonders for rooms that have small or no windows. The minimal intake of light can make your space look dull. So, this year, make the best of the summer sunlight by using charming mirror accessories to brighten up your home.

4. Bring in the Greenery

Breathe some extra oxygen into your home with plants – one of the best ways to brighten your home this summer. Indoor planters of all kinds are a great accessory as there are so many ways that you can style them. You could hang a cluster of plants on the ceiling above your end tables or window sills with easily installed hooks. Or you can use terracotta planters to showcase some of your favourite leafy greens in those otherwise empty nooks around your house.

5. Re-accessorise for The Season

Lastly, it’s time to do away with all that wintery paraphernalia that has been dulling up your home for a while now. Once you’ve done that, you can re-accessorise according to the summer season. Use fresh flower arrangements in slim glass vases. Use beachy décor like sea-shells to brighten up those tables. Decorate your window sill with fresh succulents. And use blue accents in your wall art to bring a refreshing quality to the ambience.
