Colorful UmbrellasSummer is coming!  It is time to decorate your apartment to match this colorful season.  Here are 6 summer decorating tips that will give your apartment a seasonal feel.

  1. Add color to your apartment.  This can be easily accomplished by switching out pillows or even curtains to create a summer scene.  Consider a tablecloth in a bright color.  These items are easily changed when the weather is warm and then switched back again in the fall.
  2. Bring in flowers.  Flowers are the perfect symbol of summer.  Consider purchasing a new vase and adding fresh cut flowers to your apartment. This will provide the appearance and scent of summer.  For a greener approach bring a blooming plant home.  You will be able to enjoy the plant year round.  Faux plants or flowers are a valid alternative if you have allergies or are unable to maintain a living plant.  Craft stores offer flowers that appear real.
  3. Consider adding flower prints.  In addition to adding the real thing, flower prints will provide a summer feel in your apartment.  Summer themed placemats and cloth napkins are a fantastic addition.  Consider placemats that you can rotate for each season to give your apartment the appropriate feel throughout the year.  In the bathroom, addition of flowered hand-towels provides a summer look.
  4. Birds are a symbol of summer as well.  An alternative option to flowered placemats and hand-towels are those decorated with colorful birds.
  5. Patriotic Decorations are Appropriate for Summer.  Summer is considered a patriotic time because of the Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day Holidays.  Displaying an American flag is a good way to celebrate the summer season.
  6. Consider Vacation Mementos.  Do you have seashells from a beach vacation?  Summer is the perfect time to display souvenirs from past summer vacations.  If you are crafty consider looking on Pinterest for ways to create projects from seashells.  A simple decorating option is to display photos from a previous summer trip.

Bring the feel of summer inside your apartment.  Bold colors and a brighter palette are for summer months.  By decorating your apartment to reflect summer you will be able to enjoy the seasonal feel even on a rainy day.  Contact us for more information on apartment living tips.
