Warm-Weather Decorating Ideas for Your Apartment
May 8, 2018
Now that Mother Nature has redecorated with bright spring flowers and vivid green grass, it's time for you to spruce up your apartment, too. As the balmy breezes waft through your open windows, make these simple decor tweaks to celebrate the warmer weather.
- Bring the summer vibes inside. One of the best parts of spring and summer is watching the world outside suddenly burst into bloom. Embellish your tables with bouquets of fresh flowers or incorporate a new houseplant or two to invite the outdoors in.
- Add citrusy scents. Sweet floral aromas also characterize the warmer seasons. Swap out your vanilla and pumpkin candles for ones that emanate light floral scents, like gardenia or lavender. You can also opt for other distinctly summery aromas, like citrus fruits or anything beach-related.
- Refresh throw pillows. If you want to revamp your living room without investing in a new set of furniture, here's a simple (and affordable) alternative: just switch up your throw pillows. Retailers like Ikea sell a huge variety of pillowcases in every fabric and hue you could think of, so there's bound to be something bright and seasonal that jives with your design style.
- Embrace color. Whether you're picking out new throw pillowcases or choosing a planter for your succulent, try to pick bright and bold hues. Even if the color palette in your apartment is fairly neutral, small pops of color will evoke the splendor of springtime.
