10 Refreshing Summer Decor Ideas
Summer provides a great chance to spruce up your surroundings and add some seasonal flair. Consider the following summer decor ideas for your Tucson rental home.
Add a Touch of Summer Color
You don’t have to completely redo your decor in bright, cheerful colors to give it a summery look. Instead, a few decor items here and there can add a bit of seasonal color to your home. You can do something like brightly colored throw pillows on your sofa.
Change to Lighter Linens
If you’ve been had a heavier comforter or other bedding on your bed, switch to lighter materials for summer. Choose cotton or a similar material in soft tones, such as light blue or white, to make your bed more comfortable for the season.
Give a side table, nightstand, or another piece of furniture in your home a fresh look for summer with some paint. Choose a color that goes well with your other decor so that it won’t clash.
Bring the Beach Inside
Escape the desert heat in Tucson by giving your home a seaside look. Decorate in a nautical, tropical, or beach-themed style with sailboats, seashells, palm trees, and other kinds of ocean decor. You can give your entire home a beach makeover or do one room in this theme.
Frame Travel Photos
Pick some of your favorite travel photos from past summer vacations, put them in frames, and hang them on a living room wall or in another part of your home.
Keep Fresh Flowers Around
Having fresh flowers in your home can brighten it up, add a pleasant scent and boost your mood. Since fresh flowers don’t last long, you can change up your floral arrangements using different types and colors of flowers.
Let More Light In
Take heavy drapes or curtains off your windows and replace them with thinner ones in a lighter tone for the season. These window treatments can give your home a light, breezy look and feel.
Decorate Your Door
Hang a seasonal wreath on your front door to make your home more welcoming. Buy or make a wreath with sunflowers, hydrangeas, roses, or other seasonal flowers to give your front door a cheerful appearance.
Dress Up Your Dining Room with Summer Decor
Use colorful plates and napkins when you set your dining room table. Add an elegant centerpiece, such as a few candles and a vase filled with bold, seasonal blooms.
Use Natural Textures and Elements
Bring the outdoors into your home with natural textures and elements, such as pieces of driftwood to use as decor items or bamboo placemats for your table. Other items to consider using for summer decor include rattan or wicker furniture and jute rugs.
