Gone are the dark and dingy days of winter, it’s time now to look at the bright and colourful side of nature.
Yes its summer!!!!
And summer is all about relaxing and enjoying the season. It is as much a state of mind as it is a season.
The outdoors is there for a reason, to enjoy it! And what better way to welcome summer than by entertaining outdoors. With warm weather and a few extra hours of sunlight, the summer months are perfect for dining on your front porch or having a picnic in your yard. Eating outdoors will help you and your family take advantage of everything summer has to offer.
The purest, most immediate way to get the outdoor look is to capture a beach-inspired décor across your homes.
Rooms alight with sunshine, sheathed in soft, watery hues and lightweight, gauzy fabrics, are indicative of coastal decorating. Even if your home is completely landlocked, inviting a bit of the sea inside is sure to give it a breezy, fresh-as-air attitude.
A certain color scheme can set a beachy mood in an instant: the blue of sea and sky set alongside sandy beiges almost always conjures thoughts of the shore.
Bright, vibrant colors such as the turquoise blue, tangy orange, and coral pink bring up thoughts of the beach and all of its hot-hued accessories.
A dose of metallics impart sophistication to any room. They also mimic the sparkle on the water and the gleam of metal parts on ships catching the sunlight. Every nautical-inspired space should wink with a bit of metal.
Nautical motifs can be understated but still charming. Items collected from the sea, such as the rusty anchor and sea shells impart rich character and a sense of both age and adventure to any room.
Thus this season transition seamlessly from a more formal interior setting to a thoroughly relaxed and inviting outdoor living experience.
Remember, entertaining outdoors will give you the perfect welcome break to being inside and get you connected to nature. Summer is all about being flexible and spontaneous!
Happy summer !!!!
