Although many places have reopened or are in the process of reopening with restrictions, many of us are still spending a lot more time at home than we normally would during the summer months. After a while of looking at the same décor every day, you may be feeling like it’s time for a change. Here are few simple ways to make your home feel like a breezy summer sanctuary.
A LITTLE COLOR GOES A LONG WAY
Adding pops of bright, summery colors is an easy way to breathe some new life into a space that feels stale. Throw pillows in bright aqua prints, a fun floral lampshade or sunny yellow centerpieces can instantly bring your space from drab to fab.
Take down heavy drapes and replace them with sheer panels. Though you may not be vacationing in an island cabana, these billowy, lightweight curtains just might make you feel like the sea is steps away from your door.
BRING THE BEACH HOME
If you really want to evoke that beach cottage feeling, there’s no better way to get it than with beachy décor. Whether you add navy blue and white striped throw pillows and nautical rope accents, or sprinkle some tropical coral and aqua blue prints throughout your home, you can easily make your space feel more like a beach-lover’s paradise.
SMELLS LIKE SUMMER
Candles take your décor to the next level by adding another layer to the senses beyond visuals. Certain scents can make you feel more relaxed, happier and comfortable in your space. There are plenty of great places to find summer-scented candles from Anthropologie to Bath & Body Works. Reed diffusers are another great option if you’re looking for something flameless.
Many Minto home owners enjoy the perks of having a covered lanai and a pool. If you’re spending more time at home, this is one space where you can really be creative with a summer refresh. Comfortable outdoor furniture with bright accent pillows, fun beachy décor and an outdoor bar create the perfect space for entertaining or just relaxing by the pool.
