When summertime comes around, one of the first things you want to do is open up the windows and let in the fresh air after that cold, harsh winter. Adding accent pieces around the windows, like a decorative curtain rod or even just switch heavy curtains to sheer draperies can make all the difference in the world.

Accent Wall.

Simply by adding an accent wall to any room in your home, you can freshen up the look of the space and give it a whole new feel. Choose a summery shade of paint, such as sky blue or sunshine yellow. Painting an accent wall in a room creates a focal point, adds interest, and keeps things from looking boring or bland. Paint the rest of the walls only a shade or two off for a more subtle look, or in a contrasting shade for some drama.

Outdoor Space.

Every home needs an outdoor space to get ready for summer. There is nothing better than preparing a comfortable outdoor space for entertaining friends and family. Add a barbecue and adequate seating so you’re ready for lots of time spent outdoors enjoying the warm weather. Even if you’re only working with a smaller area, add in a lounge chair to sunbathe in, or a hammock in the corner of the yard for the perfect relaxing space.
