Give The Ceiling Fan A Colourful MakeoverWooden ceiling decor ideas with ceiling fan

If you have got an existing palette or theme in your room, the ceiling fan offers another medium to accentuate it. Painting a ceiling fan is a great way to add a little bit more colour to your space in an unexpected way. Choose a bright purple or fresh yellow to introduce a colourful scheme.

Tip: Paint the fan before summer begins since you will need to let it dry completely to use it again, which is not recommended during the hot summer months!

Paint Your Front DoorWood decor ideas, blue paint for doors

Consider painting your front door for an easy summer decorating idea. Whether you choose to go for a soft pastel pink or a bold shade of red, creating a contrast between your door and your home’s exterior creates a show stopping statement. Don’t forget to add some hanging flower plants to add more drama and colour!

Prep The BalconyBalcony decoration with plants

Summer weather offers ample opportunities for dining outdoors. Get your balcony ready for alfresco entertaining. Paint the outdoor furniture in a fresh colour and add some herb plants. Consider a citronella plant which is a natural insect repellent or add basil and thyme to serve as garnishes if you are hosting a barbeque party! String paper lanterns or fairy lights on the railing will help you entertain well into the night hours.

Try A Nautical ThemeDecorating your home interiors in a nautical style

It is hard not to think of a beautiful house by the beach, the sun shining and the blue sky and the sea when you think of the summertime. Get inspired by this theme by decorating your home interiors in a nautical style to bring the summer season into your home. Pops of navy and cyan blue furniture, elegant lines and soft stripes on the cushion and rugs and white walls inject some coastal calm and charm into the bedroom for a truly restful space.

A colourful makeover for the coffee table is in order now that it is almost summer.

How Do I Style My House For Summer?

Summer is a great excuse to refresh your decor. For interior wall paint design and colour combination ideas, the key to a summer makeover is bright colours and accents and a touch of beach-inspired decor. For a lasting impression, try painting furniture in mood-boosting shades such as leafy green, soothing lilac or bright yellow- they are sure to bring summer magic and instantly spark joy.

Yellow is a colour that adds positivity to any space, it is a colour that makes us feel energised, invited, happy and joyful. This hue works best in busy, joyful spaces like the entryway, kitchen, dining and living rooms.

For a quick upgrade, you can also bring in that feeling of summer by using bright colours and patterns throughout the house. Mix and match textures and colours as much as possible to create a wonderful contrast. For example, linen textiles and floral prints scream summer!
