Room Design 101: A Summer Refresh

As the seasons change, we love infusing the moods and feelings of each season into our living spaces. And now that summer is in full swing, we are going to discuss our favorite summer refresh trips and tricks. Below are our favorite summer decor ideas and how you can refresh your home this summer. 

Greenery

Greenery is such a great way to give your home decor a summer refresh. There are so many different options of greenery (real or fake) that can revitalize your space such as fig trees, palm branches, or cacti. I love popping in some greenery in my client’s built-ins or in their powder bath. Greenery brings so much life into your home decor and makes it feel like you’re bringing inside the outside summer vegetation.  

 
  

Pops of Color

Summertime is the perfect time to bring out those fun pops of summer colors. When you’re doing a seasonal refresh, you want to reflect those colors that you’re currently seeing in the season. In the summer, I tend to gravitate towards blues, reminiscent of the blue sky and refreshing waters, and greens for the vibrant southern greenery. Throw pillows, throw blankets, and art are great ways to implement pops of color into your space. 

Throw Pillows & Throw Blankets

If you’re looking to completely refresh your space, throw pillows and blankets are an amazing way to do so. New throw pillows and throw blankets can give your home decor a whole new life and is a great way to add in a subtle pop of color and experiment with different looks. We currently have some of our favorite green throw pillows in stock both in the shoppe and online! These green throw pillows are perfect for all your summer decoration needs and can be transitioned from season to season. 

 

Art

Art is another fantastic way to bring in those pops of color and give you that summer refresh. Your art selection depends entirely on your style and openness to experiment with color. Small framed prints are great for when you’re looking for a more subtle change. Prints can vary from colorful flower botanicals, to fruits, or muted green ferns. These are a great option if you’re wanting to bring in those pops of color in a more understated way.   

Outdoor Space

What’s more fun than bringing your summer refresh outside to your outdoor space? When it comes to your outdoor space, we love using the same decor ideas that we use inside. This includes refreshing your throw pillows and throw blankets and adding in those fun pops of color. We can’t discuss an outdoor summer refresh without our favorite summer furniture piece: the bed swing. The bed swing is the perfect addition to your porch or outdoor sitting area. They provide additional seating in a comfortable (and of course stylish) way. We also love refreshing outdoor planters with fresh flowers and greenery. Updating your outdoor planters with seasonal plants is an amazing way to keep your decor refreshed from season to season. Check out below our fresh flowers outside the shoppe and how we styled this client’s porch for their summer refresh!
