It's time to reclaim our home and give it new life. This summer is all about bold colors, clean lines, unique statements pieces, and personality. Find simple or daring ways to incorporate these three exciting trends into your home this summer and see what a difference it makes.
#1 More Accessories
The first trend of the summer is more is more when it comes to accessories. Fill those bookcases with your favorite books, collectibles, and travel souvenirs. Invite guests into your world. Let them get to know you through the items that make you happy.
When it comes to design don't just throw your items onto the shelves. Give it thought. Take the time to display your treasures in a way that is aesthetically appealing to you and your guests. Group like pieces together by theme or color and mix in a variety of textures.
I love the use of color on this beautifully organized bookcase. It's just something about grouping books by color that appeals to the eye and creates an organized chaotic look
Have a love of plants... display them amongst your collection of books and magazines. Keeping the plants in groups and in similarly colored pots intrigues the eye but still looks organized and balanced.
A collection of your favorite souvenirs can sometimes look out of place in your home, but when done correctly can make for a dramatic accent to your home. I love the use of textures, color, and theme on these shelves. It appeals to the eye and pulls you in. You want to explore these shelves and hear the stories behind these unique and beautiful items.
Skip the paint this summer. Give life to your walls, stairs, bookcases, and furniture with bold peel and stick wallpaper. There are some amazing and affordable prints on the market offered by a variety of retailers. Home Depot, Lowes, Target, Wayfair, Etsy, and Spoonflower are just a few and they each offer a great selection.
A bold wallpaper on every wall in a room makes a statement and gives your home personality. Don't be afraid of bright colors and bold prints. The more adventurous the better.
Adding wallpaper to the stairs gives your home that added touch of personality. Especially, if your stairs are located in your entryway, this dramatic first impression gives guests a glimpse of who you are and invites them into your home.
The use of the wallpaper inside this cabinet pulls you in and intrigues the senses. Don't be afraid to mix bold patterns with vintage style.
It is amazing how a few pieces of bold peel and stick wallpaper can make a piece of furniture pop. I love the use of this fun, bright print with the clean lines of the dresser and bold emerald green and black paint.
Rattan has been around for ages and is usually used outdoors, but over the last couple years designers and homeowners have been bringing these unique and beautiful pieces indoors, and this trend is not slowing down. So this summer start incorporating those beautifully crafted pieces into your home.
Rattan and cane furniture give warmth to a space especially when paired with a neutral palette. These pieces help to create a cozy atmosphere and work beautifully in a bedroom.
Afraid to introduce a large piece of rattan furniture into your home, then opt for an accent piece such as a gorgeous mirror.
Go bold with an oversized showstopper piece. One unique piece can set the tone for the whole room and give it a life of its own. You can then keep the rest of the space simple and clean or continue the flair with bold colors and exotic prints.
