If you’ve been watching design shows with envy or just feeling like your home doesn’t have enough energy this time of year, then it’s time for a summer style refresh. Not sure where to begin? We have 6 ways you can reinvigorate the design and feel of your home right now!

Nothing says summer like kicking back and taking some time to relax. And, there’s little better than putting your feet up after a day of fun and adventure. So, jumpstart your summer style refresh by infusing a relaxing vibe into a space. Soothing summer colors, like the range of blues and purples in this living room, help create a sense of cool calmness. Plush furniture, pillows, and throws make sure that absolute comfort is always within reach. And, natural greenery, like the fiddle leaf fig tree, bring the tranquility of nature right into your home.


#2 Accent with Memories

For many, one of the best parts of summer is vacation. Whether you enjoy exploring places closeby or venturing far off to new lands or a favorite getaway destination, you always come back with memories. A great way to refresh your home with summer style is to accent a space with elements that evoke those blissful vacation memories. While you’re away, browse local shops for unique pieces to bring back. Or, simply use a place you love as inspiration for your design–like they did in this coastal bedroom. It’ll make every day feel like vacation!


#3 Use Your Inspiration

How many photos do you have saved from sites like Pinterest and Houzz? What have you done with them? If your answer is, “Not much,” it’s time to stop browsing and start designing! Take a look at your favorite photos and determine which colors and elements appeal to you. Then, use those aspects to inspire your summer style refresh. Start with something simple like shelving or small accessories. List out what you’re looking for. Then, shop. This will help you find pieces that suit your style and shape a custom look.


#4 Try Out a Trend

This summer, rough-cut and unfinished wood are topping the home design trend charts. Curvy furnishings are too. Why not use one, or both, of them to spice up the look of your home? Pieces that combine both trends will be your summer style jackpot! Just look at the coffee table and lamp base in this space. The organic shapes and state of the wood catches the eye and adds dimension and depth to the design for major contemporary appeal!
