How to Bring a Dash of Summer into Your Living Space

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr
Winter was long and cold and spring weather is still far
away from the summer heat when we can walk half-naked in the street. If you too
can’t wait for summer to begin, then you can prepare for the upcoming season by
introducing summer notes into your living space. No, we are not referring to
dumping a truckload of sand in the living room but rather changing small things
in the décor of the entire house that will make you feel the seaside breeze
before June begins.

Summer between the sheets

If you can’t wait for summer to arrive, then you can be
reminded of this period every time you go to bed. Changing the sheets, even if
you keep several layers, can really make a difference if you choose the right
colors and ornaments. For instance, a cover with blue waves woven onto it and a
pillow casing with the motives of sand can really make you feel as if you were
on a beach. In order for this trick to fully work, you can use a softener with
the scent of the ocean so you will have the feeling you are waking up on a
beach each morning as you “dive out” of bed.

Outdoor lighting

If you own a patio or a balcony (if you live in an
apartment), perhaps it is time to start spending your evenings outside, despite
the fact that the weather is not yet right. You don’t have to stay long, just
enough to finish the Sex on the Beach cocktail but those 15 minutes will remind
you of a great time you had sitting outside all night long during summertime.
Of course, before you venture into the darkness, you need to make sure that
there is light outside. Change the old incandescent light bulb with an LED one.
This newer type of lighting emits a cold blue light, almost like the one you see
at hula beach
parties, so it will usher in a summer atmosphere.

Ah, the memories

The reason why you are you are so into summer is probably
that you are nostalgic and you miss the previous summer when something nice
occurred to you. Well, why not set in stone or more precisely, in glass these
memories? If you visited Bondi Beach or Greece last summer, why not make beach photography glass prints that you
can put on the nightstand or on the mantelpiece, so you will constantly be
reminded of the natural beauty of these places. These prints are extremely
stylish because they are printed on the frameless glass that goes well with every
modern interior design.

The scent of summer

Your bedsheets don’t have to be the only thing that smells
like summer in your house. You can go to the nearest candle shop or a DIY
center where you can buy scented candles that will remind you of summer. An
alternative to candles are modern aerosols that are operated either manually or
they have a timer. These scents are usually labeled as the aforementioned
“ocean,” and they usually feature a picture of the sea or the inscription “fresh.”
Hell, you can even go so far as to use a toilet freshener with a similar smell,
so the entire house, from the bedroom to the bathroom, will smell like a beach
in mid-August!

Revive the deck

The change from the cold weather outside to a warmer climate
should be marked by a shift in the living space as well. You should aim to move
your center of activity toward the outside of the house or at least nearer to
the windows. This means taking out the garden setting and if the weather conditions
are favorable, dining outside. You will first be required to repaint the deck, make
sure it is 100% safe after the harsh winter chills, and that there is some sort
of artificial shade in the form of an umbrella. It will be too late to carry
out all these preparations once the first summer rays hit the patio of your
Finally, since a house is made for people to live inside it,
you yourself need to act more summerly, sort to say. Instead of tea, drink
juice or a cocktail and try to spend as much time outside as possible, taking
long walks by the river. One long look at the beach glass print and will summer
already be knocking on the door.
