Summer Refresh

Summer’s here and it’s full of sunlight and possibility. Why not bring some of this energy into your home this season? This is the perfect time of year for a summer refresh!

 

Bringing some additional colour, design, and tropical themes into your home is the hot trend — and it will definitely help you invite the warmth of summer into your space.

 

Here are two easy ways to help you refresh your furnishings and decor without breaking your budget:

 

Patterned Throw Pillows

Colourful, patterned, and tropical fabrics are incredibly popular this season.

 

The nice thing about throw pillows is that there are no rules! You can add as many or as few as you want. You can also play around with size and shape — try grouping square pillows with rectangular-shaped pillows, or for additional fun, add in a round or cylindrical pillow!

 

When selecting your fabric, keep in mind the colour of your walls and the colour of any focal pieces of furniture, such as your sofa. While it’s fun to add all kinds of different colours to your space, you don’t want it to completely clash with the main pieces of furniture in your room.

 

Tropical Themed Everything

This year you will see tropical themed design elements everywhere! It’s the hottest trend in decor this summer.

 

There are a variety of easy ways to add this theme into your home. Here are some tips:

  • Add a colourful area rug to help define and refresh your space. Surya offers a huge variety of area rugs that will bring new life to your room.
     
  • Add colourful decorative elements, like vases, bowls, and candlesticks. Decorative pieces with sparkle, colour, and shine will help to create fun and creative focal points in your space.
     
  • Add organic elements, like ferns, palms, or decorative items that feature natural fibres, wood, or shells. Incorporating these pieces will add a tropical accent and will help you bring some nature indoors.

At Smitty’s, we have a wide variety of decorative items and furniture that can be customized to your liking.

 

Come and visit our showroom and connect with one of our expert interior decorators — we’ll help you refresh your home this summer.
