Tips for Summer Home Designing

Summer is a favorite season of the year for most people, young and old. It is when we relish the sun’s warmth and light and feel most energized. We often love to bring summer right in our homes by throwing some very pretty colors and patterns for our once-a-year design projects. Now of course, there are several approaches to this, but you need to be aware of the basics.

Here are some tips that can help you create the perfect summer feels in your home this year:

Generous Light

Light is the first thing that adds a taste of summer to any home. Because you can’t imitate sunlight, think of ways to let more light inside. You can probably have new windows installed or even skylights (if your space permits).

Sunny Colors

Summer is basically about color and character, and what better method of shouting out your love for this time of year than by throwing a burst of sunny hues into your home! Think along the lines of vibrant greens and oranges and yellows – all these are connected with the summer vibe. Also add bold prints and clashing colors – and don’t forget the flamingos and pineapples!

Palm-Inspired Designs

They can actually make you feel like you are on some island paradise on on a holiday. You can also hang a palm leaf garland, throw in in some cushions and perhaps add some nice palm leaf fairy lights!

Light and Breezy

For your ultimate summer vibe, maintain a light and breezy vibe in your home the entire year. You can get this result if you only use neutral shades everywhere and then simply accessorize with one bold color or two. By keeping things simple and clean, you help create a feeling of warmth and space.

Watercolor Paintings

Watercolor paintings are a great way to spice up a summer home design. Think watercolor prints in your home to go with fit the different themes of your spaces and rooms. For instance, for the kitchen, you can combine green and purple or anything that will bring the outdoors in. Watercolor is so beautiful yet simple and perfect for summer feels, plus you can purchase it as wallpaper!


If you’re really keen on creating a summer feel to your home, add plants all over your house. Some good ones are deep green succulents and bright-hued flowers like flamingo flowers. Plants just make you feel like having nature itself as your home.
