Summer is just round the corner, bringing warmth, light and a chance to spruce up your home. No need to start a big redecoration process, our top 5 home décor ideas will make sure your home is ready for summer without any hassle.
1. Pops of colour
We know that changing your colour scheme for just one season is a bit too much, so we suggest using accessories to add colour to your room during summer, simply adding some brightly coloured cushions will do the trick. Our Jessica Zoob and Daniel Heath cushions are perfect for this. Jessica’s abstract rainbow prints would work for the majority of colour schemes and can easily transition into autumn, while Daniel’s cushions offer a fun circus theme that would be great for kid’s playrooms and bedrooms.
2. Summer Move Around
During winter, it’s only natural to want to be close to the fireplace with your blanket and settle in for the evening but during spring and summer, you’ll want a different view. Moving the furniture around can be a fun activity to do and can completely transform your room. Move the furniture so that everything is facing each other to create a more sociable space for all those summer parties or place the chairs near the window for the perfect reading spot.
3. Summer Florals
A quick and easy way to bring life to your home this summer is by incorporating more plants. We’ve got a slight obsession with terrariums here at Arlo & Jacob, they’re a really beautiful and creative way to add more green to your living room. Get your kids involved for a bit of Sunday DIY.
4. Smell of Summer
Candles can instantly change the atmosphere of a room. Woody, musky scents lend themselves to autumn/ winter but come summer you want something that will open up and refresh the room. Our top pick has to be Jo Malone’s grapefruit fragrance, its perfect for those lazy summer days.
5. Throw Away The Throws
Throws and blankets are perfect for autumn and winter, when all you want to do is snuggle up with a good book, but not so great when the weather warms up. Throws can still be a part of your décor during the warmer months, but it’s all about looking for light linen throws, they’ll give your living room the welcoming feeling of a throw without looking out of place.
