Five Colorful Summer Decorating Ideas
Changes do us good generally and the rule should also apply for home interiors. Any change personalizes our home, sets us a good spirits and looks as fresh start, increasing our optimism. In this context, we have picked several recommendations made by the British designers who give us five colorful summer decorating ideas, as presented by the Daily Telegraph. The advice is simple, easy to follow and financially convenient. The central element is, of course, color.
The first idea envisages couches in the living room, the space where we socialize and which is representative for any home. In the picture below, the couch got a new upholstery, made of recycled wool. More specifically, designer Justin Mould used salvaged yarns from the Italian fashion industry and turned them into colorful fabric for couches, armchairs and pillow cases – a small step towards bringing us closer to nature. The resulting fabric comes in 61 different colors and, as you can see, the visual impact in considerable, completely changing the appearance of the living room.
It doesn’t all come down to upholstery. For a distinct note of vivacity, designers also recommend this ceramic tiles covered bistro tables, easy to handle and fitting any corner of the home, porch or garden. Tiles, which are inlaid by hand, come in different patterns and colors and will definitely spruce up the corner where found. You can personalize the tables by choosing various patterns and colors.
In 1945, designer Ernest Race sketched the BA2 chair. Seven decades later, Race Furniture, the manufacturing company, asked 90 designers to reinterpret the design of the chair for charity purposes. The results, some of them in the image below, were auctioned and the money donated to a children charity foundation. The bottom line is that chairs in different colors project extra dynamism to your home.
Do not ignore the potential of pillows – in many cases, in a monochromatic room, they break up the color monotony. In the image below, the pillow case is inspired by the landscape of the Greek islands of Santorini and Naxos.
Last, but not least, personalize your interior home design with clay made pottery, traditionally crafted, and painted in various colors. Put them on table tops, shelves and cabinets and create small visual focal points across the house.
