Summer house interiors have a relaxed and cozy environment, because summer spirit embodies laziness, cloud free skies, and the smell of fresh air. We’re presenting you with some easy ideas on how to decorate your interior, which are proven to be simple and effective.

Full effect

Seeing as how the days turn hotter and longer, you will want to spend more of your time outside than inside. This is the perfect opportunity to create a sort of outdoor summer house style interior.

In a scenario where full glass stacking doors are not possible, replacing heavy curtains with lighter ones will allow more light to come in and gives the feeling of being outside while sitting or laying down on your favorite furniture. Making the home more open also has the same effect, as it creates a greater airflow giving you that cool summer breeze we all love and enjoy.

More light

One of the biggest positives of summer is the very bright sunlight that lasts almost throughout the entire day. Replacing heavy drapes and blinds with some simple thin curtains will allow more natural light to come in. Woven wood shades and bamboo blinds can be used as well, as they look even more natural.

Adding some neutral colors into the mix, like turquoise or orange, will give your home an even bigger summer appeal and charm.

Give importance to your outdoor area

Make sure your decks are oiled, gardens well watered and cleaned. No one likes spending their time on maintenance in the summer, so your outside elements should be relatively easy to keep up with.

Install fly-screens and security doors to keep bugs and insects outside while still allowing cool night air to ventilate your home and freshen it up for the next day. It’s a perfect solution to both problems and presents itself nicely.

The outdoors, inside

In order to blend the outdoors and indoors even more, we have a few ideas that accomplish that.

Tropical indoor plants give your home a fresh and new look. Succulents, container gardens, self made living wall projects, mobile planters and the likes of will freshen up your interior and keep you trendy.

To give your home a fresh and inviting smell, while still making it look amazing, put some flowers, plants and fruit centerpieces.

To bring an exotic and outdoor feeling to your home, use materials such as jute area rugs and bamboo. As well as looking great, they are eco-friendly. Having fun and spending time outside means that when you go inside, you’ll want to just relax and spend a lazy afternoon doing nothing but enjoying. After all, summer is about adventure and entertainment, just as much as it is about relaxing.

A summer view

Decorating just the inside of your home with summer vibes is great, but giving the same treatment to the garden or balcony will really pay off going the extra mile. The summer atmosphere should be felt on the outside parts of your home as much on the inside. After all, it’s the summer spirit to let your imagination and creativeness take over everything.

Natural textures and Lightness

Another easy way in which you can switch to summer style is by simply swapping out decor that is visually heavy with furnishings that evoke a sense of airiness. For instance, replace that heavy, wooden coffee table with an acrylic piece or swap the traditional dining table chairs with those made out of wicker or bamboo.

Organic textures and natural fabrics like jute and cotton also fit in perfectly with the summer sizzle. While the floor was covered with plush rugs in the winter, now is the time to let those wooden floors shine through unhindered. It is all about getting these little things right!

Night lights

Enjoy the nice warm summer nights by tying up some string paper lanterns on branches in the yard or outdoor patio to keep the entertainment going into the late summer hours. If the weather decides to start acting up, gather round a lamplight below a covered area. Seeing as how short summer is, you’ll want to spend as much time as you can outside.

After all, summer is what you make of it. It’s a season as much as it is what you want it to be.

Kids

If you don’t want your favorite decorations and materials to be ruined, make sure they are machine washable, as summer is a time when every kid spends outside playing in nature, and will probably get something dirty. Make the most of your summer by going on hikes, spending precious time fabricating crafts projects with various seashells and pine cones.

The kids’ play toys created from nature itself can turn into your summer decorations.

Simple decorations you can do yourself

Summer is a time for relaxing, so make sure you do just that. Loosen up a bit and do the same to your home. Give it a more casual look. Some fresh looking posters, collages, and even some cheeky floral patterns can be a great idea. Even a hammock in the living room can be incredible.

For the people who want to involve their entire family, feel free to start with the kids. They enjoy making simple stuff and are entertained by it. Replace whatever you can with colorful substitutes.

Windows and curtains

Light and airy colors are all that is needed. Using removable slipcovers and decorative throws can bring incredible brightness and color. If you prefer white and neutral colors, khaki and white slipcovers are casual yet elegant.

Enjoy the sensations

Let your spirit run free and your mind wander off during the summer days. Make your outdoor areas more inviting with some pergola arbor. A hammock completes the entire aesthetic image and is a practical addition to the yard.
