Interior Design Tips & Tricks: Make Your Home Sizzle In Style This Summer

Although the official first day of summer isn't until June 21st, here in the Northwest there are signs of it everywhere! The sun is out, flowers are blooming, and everyone is ready to spend some quality time outdoors. Since we only get a short few months of summer here, make the most of it by bringing the season into your home! Here are some helpful hints on freshening up your home for the summer months as well as GHID's sizzling stylish favorite summer finds!

Uncover & Recover with Summer Friendly Fabrics

It's common to choose a warm, neutral color scheme for your living and bedroom to make your space cozy and inviting, but in the summer time, don't be afraid to brighten it up! Strip your bed of any dark colors or heavy throws and bring in solid whites with colorful accents, and airy throws that'll keep you feeling and looking cool. Cover upholstered pieces like sofas and arm chairs with lightweight slipcovers for a clean, summery look.

Add A Pop Of Color Or Two, Or Three

Bringing color into your home should be easy this time of year; inspiration is all around us! Accent pillows are the perfect way to add a touch of color and visual interest to a room. It's a quick and simple update that doesn't have to break the bank! Swap out any dark decor with bright pieces that reflect summer and compliment your space. If you really want to make an impact this season, paint an accent wall! You'll find yourself and your visitors smiling every time they enter the room.

Bring The Outdoors In With Greenery and Gardens

When it comes to livening up your space, fresh floral arrangements and house plants are the way to go! Not only do they look beautiful, but they also fill your home with an amazing fragrant scent. For those of us who don't have the greenest of thumbs, look for a plant that is easy to care for and that will thrive in the amount of light your home will allow it. For the lucky people who DO have a green thumb, start a little indoor garden for fresh herbs, fruits and veggies that you and your guests can enjoy all summer long!

Dine Al Fresco With Colorful Summer Style You And Your Guests Can Enjoy

Whether you're eating indoors or out, entertaining or having a quiet night alone, make it a colorful experience with bright patterned dinnerware! Investing in some clear glass plates makes accessorizing for the seasons easy!

Sensational Seasonal Scents To Perfume You And Your Home With

We all have our favorite go-to scents, but in the summer time, go for something fresh and botanical! Don't stop with your perfume either. Trade out soaps, room spray, candles, shampoo and anything else you can think of with the latest seasonal scents.
