Many of us like to refresh our home in the summer season so that we can make it as comfortable as possible whether we are enjoying a staycation at home or simply trying to keep cool during the course of normal life.
When it comes to preparing the home for summer, as well as booking AC repair services installing cooling blinds and shutters, and clearing up the garden, many of us like to redecorate the place, and one of the most popular colors for redecorating in the summer is cooling, crisp white.
If you are looking to decorate your home with chic and simple white, and you’re looking for inspiration, here are a few ideas you might enjoy:
The world traveler
One look that can be amazing when you are centering white in your color scheme is that of the world traveler. Summer is often the time we start to think about heading off on vacation, but even if you are staying at home, you can get the summer vacation vibe by transforming your home into an eclectic mix of world influences. White walls combined with textiles from India, statues from Europe, paintings for South America, etc., will make your home a million times more interesting for you and anyone who visits, while also providing you with lots of fun travel inspiration.
A nautical theme
If you are looking to use white as the base for your decor, then a nautical theme, especially in the summer, can look quite sophisticated. Blend your basic white walls with lots of striped and navy accessories, natural rope, and maybe even a shell or two and it will almost feel li,e you’re cruising in a yacht on the high seas.
The minimalist look
If you really love white and you want your home to feel light and bright, but also cool and crisp, go for the minimalist look. As well as painting the walls white, invest in white furniture, white accessories…white everything, Remove anything from the room that does not need to be there, and enjoy the simplicity of your home, which will make the views from the windows with the blue skies and rainbow or flowers, pop all the more. After all. There is nothing more stunning than nature, and if you have a good view, keeping your decor white will really help it to shine.
The farmhouse look
If it’s comfy and cozy you're looking for, then you might think white is out, but if you go for the farmhouse look, your white decor can be every bit as warm as you like. For the farmhouse look, white walls are complemented with woven chairs, patterned fabrics, natural wood, and lots of comfy accessories like pillows and rocking chairs. Think olde worlde charm, design for comfort and you will love it.
As you can see, there are lots of ways that you can use basic white to completely transform your home into a stylish and chic abode during the summer months - which one will you choose?
