As Memorial Day approaches, those in the north are enthusiastically climbing out of hibernation to ready the abode’s decor for summer fun. Whether living life in the Hamptons, a big city or one’s home town, invite the season inside by rejoicing with a bit of redecorating prepared to celebrate living the life that summer brings.

Add Summer Decor with Fresh Accessories

Darker decor accessories can be replaced with new summer-themed garnishes. The heavy knitted-woolen pillows and throws have no place in the summer decor.

Bring the fun of summer into a room with themed accessories that reflect the joyous seasonal fun. Have a blast decorating with a bit of nautical flair. Do the room up in red, white and blue to celebrate the patriotic themes from Memorial Day to July Fourth and Labor Day. Think tropical by tossing in some bright exciting colors in greens, oranges, yellows, reds and purples to reflect a beautiful summer sunset.

Place lovely summer floral arrangements throughout the decor to bring in a bit of nature. Swap out winter-themed artwork for new summer touches to hang on the walls

Switch the heavy window drapes for summer appropriate window decor. Send the drapery to the cleaners and then pack it away ready to re-hang for the colder weather. The windows, as the eyes to the outdoors, should act as a frame to view the beautiful summer views.

Enjoy a bit of a tropical taste by hanging wooden blinds that instantly wake up a room when the slats are opened or the blind is raised.  Soften the look by hanging sheer panels over the blinds. Pull the sheers to the side and open the blinds to welcome the summer breeze and scents into the room through the open window to celebrate a lovely day.

Time to store away heavy bedding in exchange for lightweight decor. Even with an air conditioner cooling the room, heavy comforters in dark colors have no place in the summer decor scheme.

Change out duvet covers and dress the bed in lightweight summer quilts ready to cover one to promote a comfy snooze. Keep the colors soft in lovely tones of whites and blues – as if reflecting the pretty summer sky. Add a touch of light yellow to the mix to bring the taste of summer sunshine into the room.

Bathroom decor can easily be summerized with new beach-themed accessories. With water running, the bathroom is the perfect space in the abode to bring in a bit of the summer by celebrating with a beach themed decor.

The shower curtain can easily act as a mural displaying a scene of sand, palm trees and blue sky – or have fun with a fabric curtain showcasing tropical fish swimming. Easily dress up the room in new towels to blend with the chosen decor theme. Use a large shell as a soap dish and accessorize by candles surrounded by shells.

Summer Scents Add Delight

Summer recalls the aroma of coconuts and tropical fruits like mangos and pineapples. After some easy redecorating to ready for the season of sunshine add a bit more refreshment to the decor by simply adding some scents of summer.

Candles, flameless candles, oils and soaps easily can be a beautiful additional touch to any room. Open or light the scents up, with closed eyes one will feel as if they have been transformed to a relaxing lounge on the beach.

Enjoy the fleeting season of summer fun and sun inside and outside of the home. Gather shells to place in a lovely bowl for a keepsake of summer memories to have in the decor even after Labor Day comes and goes.
