What is latest in home décor this summer - from drapes to wall covers - our take on the quintessential décor!!
The arrival of summer always necessitates change of décor, mood and looks. Once summer arrives it is not just the woolens that go in the box but also the wool and silk cushions, beddings and other such stuff. This also happens to be the time when we look for lighter shades and even lighter fabrics. It is very difficult to face clutter and disorder as our body and soul yearns for pristine open spaces and free flow of air and energy. You really don’t have to go the whole hog to bring in the summer. A few little changes can make all the difference and make your home feel light and fresh for the season.
The little changes
• For a start you can begin by doing a spring cleaning routine and dust, sweep, scrub and vacuum those places that get overlooked during the routine clean up.
• Next rotate, rearrange and replace the rugs with lighter textile like sisal, cotton or sea grass.
• Remove the area rugs and store them for winter
• Replace your silk and synthetic mix digital print bed sheets with pure cotton and light colored bed linen. Include more of blues, whites and pastels in your bed spreads, cushions and pillow covers.
• Change the floral fragrances and flower arrangement in the house and choose fresh and fruity fragrances.
• Plant some seasonal flowers in the window pots or get some miniature plant holders in your kitchen.
That is one thing that you want to be dark and thick in summers to keep the hot sun out and keep the house cool and breezy. Go for the trendy bright cotton curtains. There are such beautiful striped and floral options available everywhere in the market nowadays. Since the contemporary drapes come ready to be installed; it is rather easy to change them with the seasons. Floor to ceiling sheer curtains are another fab idea for summer and look absolutely regal in any home space.
Wall paper & Paint
Color your walls in shades of light blue, baby pink, white and off white. Otherwise you can go for breezy pastels. The color on the walls can alter the feel of the space immediately and in great measure. The paint companies are constantly offering DIY options and you could really give it a go.
Pick out some clean lines or broad geometric prints. White and light shades of wall paper are best for summer season. Choose the wall paper or wall decoration as per the person, theme, looks and feel. You can also go for decals that come in all sorts of sceneries and prints. The best part about decal wall stickers is that they are just as easy to install as they are to take off. They are a great way of changing the look of your walls as per the season and trend. Kids and teens absolutely love the various themes that these decorative wall stickers have to offer. You can easily create a spring or winter season on your walls with the help of these versatile decals and beat the heat of the harsh Indian summer months.
