Summer is the perfect time to let those colors shine. With green grass and blue skies outside, why not wake up your décor with those brighter colors that we associate with summer. The beach, colorful fabrics, casual clothes, it all goes hand in hand.
A quick way to wake up a space is to paint a piece of furniture. Have an older piece of furniture that has seen better days? Paint it a pretty pop of color and your room will come alive. I love dark woods, but mixing in a painted piece in a room is such a fun way to give it a new vibe.
An all white room can be sterile and uninteresting, but watch what happens when you add some fun colors to the space. This room would not be the same without the striped pillows and the blue chair. Color brings it to the forefront and draws your eye in.
Summer is such a great time to entertain outside and get those color pops as well. You can take a porch from blah to beautiful with neutral backdrop and furniture, just add in those colorful pillows and accessories and you’ll love your space so much more. Color just has a way of energizing a room.
Most of this space is very neutral too, but the addition of the vibrant striped rug in blues and greens totally wakes up the space. Summer just begs for brighter colors in fabrics and accessories, especially in the outdoors.
Stripes and colors go together like peanut butter and jelly and who wouldn’t love lounging in that comfy outdoor seating area.
So, to really enjoy your summer outdoors, wake it up with color. Paint a bench, paint a pot, stencil on some fun designs and plant flowers in vibrant shades of the season and watch your porch or deck come alive. Summer makes me happy and color is a big part of that.
What are you doing with your outdoor spaces to wake them up and make them shine with color this year?
