Warm weather trends for interior decorating
With summer fast approaching, it's time to throw open the windows and let the warmth inside. Forget about the chill of winter by transforming your home's interior into an atmosphere of inspiration and comfort.
With temperatures rising across the country, trees have unfurled their leaves and flowers have opened their petals to a brighter sun. As you open your home's windows to let in the fresh air and warm sunlight, why not open your doors to some greenery, as well?
Bringing plants into the home not only adds a pop of natural green, but can also improve your emotional health. In fact, research shows that living with indoor plants can improve your mood by lowering stress levels and promoting soothing thoughts. Consider adding foliage throughout your home, especially in rooms where you spend most of your time.
Gold-colored accents can make your living room, bedroom or entryway feel warm and inviting. Like the inviting hue of a shining summer sun, notes of gold can help you feel at ease when you're relaxing at home.
Used in excess, gold can quickly become gaudy – but when used to embolden more prominent color choices, it adds depth and character. For example, gold accents used alongside seafoam green and dark blues can create a sensation of light shimmering on the cresting waves of a calm ocean.
Creative office spaces
Whether you work from home or you utilize a residential office space to accomplish daily tasks, you can benefit from a space designed to promote creativity. In other words, your home office needn't be bland and utilitarian.
Warm weather offers a chance to throw open the windows and let in some fresh air to invigorate your mind as you work. Filling the space with inspirational quotes, productivity accessories and desk plants can help you keep your eye on the prize. For instance, by bringing your desk away from the wall and into the center of the room, you can design a space that feels open and inviting – a place you'll actually want to do some work in.
If you've noticed that pale pink is appearing in more places than ever before, you're not mistaken. According to The Cut, pale pink – also called blush, delicate pink or Millennial Pink – first became widely used in 2012 and has only grown in popularity. Unlike more intense shades of pink, this comforting hue is gender neutral and pairs well with blues, grays and purples.
This season, consider complementing pale pink with Pantone's color of the year – ultraviolet. Pale pink with darker accents adds depth, creates visual interest and provides a calming atmosphere.
Remember those vintage photos of your grandparents sitting poolside in their brightly colored swimwear and sunglasses? This summer, you can channel some of those groovy vibes by decorating your home interior with faux vintage lamps, chairs and tables. Plus, you can add a few tropical-themed pieces inspired by citrus fruits and birds of paradise.
