Summer is the time of year that many of us look forward to during the other seasons. It not only signals the time of year when many of us can enjoy plenty of time outdoors, it’s also a time when children have off from school and we can have more family time together as well. If you are an individual who tends to decorate for the seasons, you will certainly want to keep the current trends in mind when decorating your home for the summer. Here are some different trends that you may want to consider in arranging your home decor.
Purple is a color trend that tends to come and go, but this summer, it’s a popular choice. Although you can certainly use purple in the home during any season of the year, it tends to look very nice during the summer months. You can either use a deep purple color accent, or you can throw splashes of purple around the room in order to have an impact. Additional colors that look nice with purple include brown, gray and yellow.
The right shade of green can also make a significant impact on your summer decorating efforts. Although there are many green choices available, spring green tends to be trending this year. The reason it is trending now is because it offers a very vibrant color and works well with many different home decor settings without the need of changing everything about the room. As with purple, you can use spring green in small doses throughout the room or in larger doses, depending upon your personal taste.
There is always room for using various patterns in your summer decor. This is something that you can either coordinate throughout the house or you may be able to mix and match, depending upon your own personal style. Using patterns give you the opportunity to express yourself in a number of ways. They can allow you to truly show off your personality throughout the room and can add splashes of color, making the room come to life. When you combine patterns properly, you’ll find that the room takes on its own personality and quite honestly, it is difficult to go wrong in your pattern choices.
One other color that may be used effectively in your summer decorating is brick red. This is a color that is not often used in great quantity throughout the home, but it can add a splash of color, helping to bring your other decorating efforts to life.
It is important to understand that although some trends may stick around for many years, others will come and go very quickly. Some people want to stick with the most current trends while others may want to purchase items that they can bring out every summer to add the different colors that will help to make their home more summery. There really aren’t any rules associated with decorating your home, provided you are happy with the end result.
