The warmer months of summer are finally upon us, which means now is a great time to freshen up your apartment in Chicago! With a few apartment-friendly decorating tips, you can make your living space a beautiful reflection of the best season of the year.
Brighten the Place Up
Summer is all about sun and warmth, so take a look at the color palette in your space. Does it seem a little dark? If so, then it may be time to switch things up a little. Swap out those dark, dreary curtains, rugs, and table runners with brighter and more cheery colors. Pastels are a great option, but if you’re feeling bold, consider going with some fun turquoise or yellow shades.
Bring the Outdoors In
There are so many beautiful flowers and plants that bloom during the warmer months of summer, so why not incorporate some of these into your decor? Even if you don’t necessarily have the time (or green thumb) to commit to keeping an indoor plant or flowers alive, you can always find artificial versions of your favorite summer blooms. Consider, for instance, picking up an artificial bamboo plant to adorn your space.
Another option for bringing the outdoors in this summer is decorating with a beach theme! Seashells, sand dollars, and rustic/beachy furniture are all great additions to your space.
Lighten Up a Little
During the cooler months of winter, you probably took out the heavy blankets to stay warm, but you won’t need them for awhile yet. Put them into storage and replace them with some lighter throws. If you have heavy curtains on your windows, consider swapping them out with some sheer curtains that will allow plenty of sunlight in while still giving you the privacy you want. Take some time to declutter and lighten up your living space so that it feels airy and clean all summer long.
