Summer decor is all about celebrating the colours of the season whilst bringing in happiness and joy. And while we may not be able to jet off to our favourite waterfront resort, we sure can bring the essence of this beautiful season indoors.


If the weather is unpredictable where you are, even more reason to find a way to bring some sunshine indoors — through a summery interior!


In that regard, let’s discover the top 5 decor ideas to bring summer into your home.


Make A Statement With Florals

What’s summer without bold, bright, and vivid flowers?


Using a floral-print wallpaper in your interior is an elegant and timeless idea (and doesn’t necessarily have to be wholly feminine). From moody and dark to colourful and dramatic, there are plenty of options to choose from based on your preference.

You can step up the game from floral-print wallpapers to chinoiserie prints, which help inject luxury and exoticism into your interior. In addition to flowers, chinoiserie features bird and leaf forms — the perfect representation of summer. You can incorporate this whimsical style through wallpaper and soft furnishings, such as bed upholstery, cushions, and throws.


And, of course, you can make a statement with florals and simultaneously incorporate texture by introducing fresh-cut flowers to your space. Pick big blooms and bright colours, and sprinkle vases of flowers throughout your home.


If you’re a plant enthusiast, you may also want to grow easy-to-raise varieties in your backyard for a summer garden or commit to a biophilic interior.


Introduce Nautical Elements

If we were to say ‘your ideal summer vacation’, what would pop up in your mind? Cocktails under the sun with deep blue ocean waves hitting against the sand … right?


Why not bring the spirit of turquoise waters to your interior, so you can enjoy the ambience of your favourite beach right in your own home. Here’s how to achieve the look:

  • Set a neutral base

  • Complement with pops of rust and navy

  • Use striped patterns

  • Designate a corner of the space to corral your beach gear

  • Decorate with seashells and other souvenirs you may have collected from the seaside

  • Use wall art displaying ocean views


Decorate With Sunshine Hues

Incorporating yellow into your decor is an instant way to introduce the vibe of summer to your space. Yellow lends a soft, sunny aura, signals freshness, and creates a feeling of warmth and comfort.


You can use softer tones of the colour if you plan to use yellow abundantly. In contrast, decorate with bright yellow (the shade you’d colour a sun in your childhood) sparingly, as too much of the bold colour can get overwhelming. For example, use a single piece of yellow accent furniture, or toss in cushions using the shade.


Spruce Up The Patio

Hot summer days mean one thing — spending your time soaking up the sun! And if you’re lucky enough to have a backyard, sprucing it up for the upcoming season is a fantastic way to make the space truly feel like summer. Incorporate cosy lighting and use plenty of cushions, throws and artwork.

If you have a larger space, you can divide your outdoor space into zones, using one for a mini dining area and the other for seating space. Bonus points if you create a small outdoor kitchen, using a grill, smoker, or pizza oven. You’ll also need a small enclosed pantry, firepit, and outdoor cooling system if it gets very hot around your place.
