In this article we will discuss of many tips to decorate your house in the summer. This summer, get your home into a cheerful mode with simple decor changes. We tell you how to do it in simple strokes.
1. KNOCK KNOCK
Make the doors your new canvas. Colour them in striking, contrasting shades for an instant effect.
2. BREATHE FRESH
To add greenery inside the living room, place a flowering shrub in a pop-colored planter. Keep it in a lit-up spot.
3. PRINT IT
Transform any old grandfather's chair into a trendy wing-style by reopening it into a bold print fabric.
Who says the rug can only be in solid or dull shades? Go ahead, invest in one that screams colour.
Wooden frames in the same color as the walls, but in a bright shade for a French effect.
6. CUSHIONED COMFORT
Adorn your light coloured furniture with bright ikkat print cushions. They add an interesting element to the room.
7. SPLASH OFF
If you have a monochromatic room, throw in a colorful colored coffee table. Paint it yourself or buy from the rack- it's an instant mood uplift.
8. DIY LACE
Paint a table in a bright shade and seal it with a varnish. Now, stick lace strips along the sides of the rack to get your unique side table.
9. BED HEAD
Do away with the traditional headboard to create space in the room. Then pin up a bold bed cover behind the bed to make a gigantic dramatic headboard.
10. DRESS UP
Paint your old dark dressing table in a peppy colour for a visible uplift to the room. Tip: Place it next to a window to lend an illusion of open space to the room.
11. LIGHT UP
Think out-of-the-box for your outdoor chandelier requirement. This mason jar chandelier is colourful and can be painted easily at home (with the help of your children)!
12. DIY HEADBOARD
Cover the wall behind the bed in patchwork cutouts to gift yourself an amazing statement piece.
13. PHOTO BOMB
Choose two or three primary colours to do up your child’s room. Then arrange the soft furnishings (in the same shade) to make it look cheerful. Tip: Add a quirky furniture piece—the kids will love it.
14. CALENDAR STYLE
Paint a single wall in the nursery in the form of colour chips—it will help in teaching your toddler colours—and also lend a touch of playfulness to the room. Keep the rest of the furniture minimal.
15. DIY PLANTER
Get your children to help you create this easy marble planter.
16. ARTY TOUCH
Get an assortment of tiles (instead of a uniform one) to line the open cupboard areas of the kitchen.
17. BLOOMS GALORE
Instead of kitchen herbs, keep some fresh flowering pots in the kitchen to add an old-world charm. Place it near the windows for it to flourish.
18. UPLIFT AWAY
Convert the old dining chairs into a trendy style statement. Get a painter to varnish the chairs in a bold colour. Add flowers and other greens to set the table.
19. PLATED MEAL
Replace boring crockery with cheerful coloured ones—they will perk up the table instantly. Think indigo, emerald, topaz and ruby hues.
20. THINK PINK
Keep the boring wood at bay and get a bold coloured high gloss lacquer paint for the bathroom cabinet.
21. PAPER UP
Be different and apply waterproof wallpaper to your bathroom walls in a bright print. The pros are that you can change them at a relatively less or cost, whenever you want. Also, the wallpaper will become a decor element in itself.
Add quirky bathroom essentials to buff up the space. If you have ample area, add flowers to your cabinet. The sweet smell will perk you up every morning.
