‘Tis the (Summer) Season
Summer means lazy days filled with endless sunshine, fragrant flowers exploding with color, and Mother Nature at her finest. It’s the time of year in which everyone longs to be outside, running through a sprinkler or feeling the sand between their toes.
Of course, we can’t spend every waking moment in the great outdoors—but we can find easy ways to connect to elements like sky, earth, air and water by bringing them into our home décor. In doing so, we feel grounded and peaceful, and our days spent inside wind up being (almost) as enjoyable as the days we spend out.
A few tips for bringing the best that summer has to offer inside your four walls.
Flora + Fauna.
Hydrangeas, roses, asters—summer is the season when your yard becomes a veritable flower market. Don’t restrict the beauty only to the outdoors! Simply snip and stash in gorgeous bud vases that mimic natural elements themselves—like these branch vases from JFish Designs.
Wood is Good.
We love how wood pieces blend earthy, sustainable features + modern design. Think beyond furniture and do your flooring in natural woods, or decorate with tree branches. You can also bring in the element in a natural but eye-catching way, like this Live Edge Elm Coffee Table with Hairpin Legs from KRW Studios.
Sure, we all know summer’s bounty of fruit is mouthwateringly delicious, but it can also kick up your space’s style quotient. Think about how gorgeous a grouping of sunny lemons or vivid limes can look when artfully arranged. In addition to fruits’ luscious color, you can also play up its texture, making it especially interesting for the eye. Case in point: this ceramic Hello Round Bowl from Perch!, perfect for displays of colorful whimsy.
