Open up the windows and let the summer sunshine in! Summer is a great time to take a look around and see what your home sweet home needs. A touch of color goes a very long way and can make a big difference in your overall design. Here are some quick and easy ways to heat up your decor by adding home accents that are full of hot summer colors.
Classic Blue Works It
Check out your flooring. Whether it’s tile, hardwood, linoleum, or anything in between, a colorful area rug just might be the ticket to refreshing any room. We sometimes overlook the power of an area rug that offers color, dimension, and design. The Pantone Color of the Year is Classic Blue, a perfect neutral and a great color to bring a summer look together.
Heat Things Up with Red
Red is always a favorite in home decor, especially if you want to heat things up. You might not want to cover the room from top to bottom in this ravishing color, but adding an accent here and there will work wonders. Let’s start with popping shades of red accent pillows on a sofa, loveseat, or even stacking them on the floor. Let’s not forget the bedroom. Red pillows layered on a perfectly made bed are magical.
Light Everything Up with White Light
Lighting can transform a room from drab to fab, especially in the summer. Let’s say you have your room just the way you want it, but something is missing. You can’t put your finger on it. Try replacing an old, tired lamp with a whimsical, white chandelier. It will work double duty as an interesting white focal point and make everything in the room seem more cheerful.
