Everyone associates Memorial Day as the unofficial first day of summer. It’s when most people get a free vacation day, kids are off school, and community pools open up for the season. As such, the week after Memorial Day should be a time to welcome in the summer months by doing a bit of decorating in your luxury home. In Maryland, the mask and social distancing requirement has been lifted for all vaccinated individuals, so your home can once again become a meeting space for friends and family. Say hello to bright, sunny days ahead with these decorating tips for a fresh, summery look in your luxury home.
Clean Up the Old, Welcome the New
Since summer has just begun, you may still have remnants of past seasons around your luxury home. This can include more cold-oriented items like heavy throw blankets or space heaters or unnoticed spring season decor. Or, you may just have some old furnishings that you have grown tired of looking at every day. Summer is a great time to completely freshen up the look of your luxury home, so there is no room for drab and boring decor. Consider adding a whole new color scheme to your interior design for a bright look. Especially summery colors include teals, corals, bright yellows, and baby blues.
Find a Cohesive Style or Theme
The next step to welcoming summer into your luxury home is to develop a summer theme. There are so many themes to choose from that are closely associated with summer. Some of the more common examples are beach, nautical, or or indoor/outdoor themes, but there are plenty of alternative options to these if none suit your fancy. For instance, a boho-chic theme is a perfect way to make your luxury home resemble a luxury waterfront resort in the Caribbean. Try adding some nature-based pieces, such as natural wood or straw-based furniture, tapestries, and souvenirs from past travels around the world. And don’t forget all of your indoor plants and succulents!
Update the Most Used Rooms of the Luxury Home
It’s important to focus your efforts and energy on the rooms of the home that receive the most foot traffic in the summer, such as a sunroom or a family room area. This is likely where your guests will be situated during parties and friendly gatherings. Even just a few summer-themed additions to your luxury home can make a huge impact on guests. Try adding some differentiating textures to your decor, such as pillows with a similar color scheme but different materials.
