With the good weather and longer daytime, you would want to spend more time outdoors. Why not have a similar summer feeling both indoors and outdoors as well. Here are some innovative ways of decorating the house for the summer by making it relaxing and holiday-like as well.
Nautical door wreath
Take yourself on a beach vacation and step into your home with a cute nautical door wreath welcoming you in the hot summers. For this, you would require a pool noodle or a Styrofoam wreath and tape the sides together. Mark off four quarter sections in your wreath, to be colored white and navy blue. You can also finish it off by fixing a piece of driftwood with letters stenciled on it for the perfect beach cottage style.
Displays Made Out of Sand and shell
Not keep some memories of the sand and sea by keeping an attractive shell display that you would have collected on a beach vacation. Put your shell collections in tube shaped vases that are transparent. Partly fill them up with sand and use assortments of medium to large shells. They can be of different patterns, colors and sizes to suit your decor.
Starfish and Shell Lanterns
Lanterns are elegant decor items and have a great summertime feel to them. Do not use candles inside of them and instead replace them with some summer beach treasures like seas life and shells that you would have collected from the beach. These lanterns would be great summertime decor and would remind you of some great beach vacations.
Oyster Shell Mirror
If you cannot afford a house by the beach, then bring the beach into your home! The latest trends are decor pieces made out of oyster shells. You can get yourself a gorgeous mirror that has an oyster shell rim or you can even make one yourself. This will enhance the look of your walls and contrast the colors you have inside your home.
Seashell candles will not only look very decorative, but you can make them at home and engage in a fun family activity. For this, you would need some large sized assorted shells like large scallop shells, big cockles and Cebu clams along with some wicks, metal taps, candle wax and metallic spray paint. You can also leave them natural, but covering them up in sparkling hues of silver and gold will add glamour to the candles.
These are a few ideas that you can incorporate inside your home to give your interiors a hint of summertime. Many of these things can be created as a DIY project and would be fun to do with the family!
