3 Simple Summer Decorating Updates for Your New Home

One of the best parts of moving into a new home is having the opportunity to decorate and outfit your home with the latest trends. Some people like to do seasonal updates throughout their home, while others like to stick with a basic décor and supplement with little pops of color here and there. Essentially you have a brand-new canvas to work with when you arrive in your new digs, so the possibilities are endless. Summertime is a perfect season to revamp furniture, add a fresh coat of paint to a room, change the curtains and maybe even incorporate some fresh foliage in different areas of the house.


A fresh coat of paint gives a room an instant freshness and can even be a pop of color if you decide to just paint one wall. Summertime is a great season to throw a bright color on a wall, match a bit of the décor to the wall color and liven up communal areas where you and your loved ones will be spending the most amount of time this summer. Paint is an easy update that doesn’t cost a fortune and it’s a project that can be completed in a reasonable amount of time.  

Plants or an Herb Garden

An herb garden is a perfect addition to your kitchen because the herbs are readily available for your cooking needs and if potted, you have an instant garden that looks beautiful on your counter top or sink. Plants are also a wonderful addition to any room, bringing the freshness of a living organism and the pop of color to the room, it’s hard to go wrong. The summer lends us a fantastic selection of flowers to choose from and so many people like to have a fresh-cut bouquet in their homes to bring a little outdoor beauty, indoors.

Make sure you also keep your lawn and outdoor plants looking nice!

Wall Hangings, Rugs & Accessories

Just like a coat of paint, a rug or wall hanging can completely change the feel of a room. Perhaps you don’t want to spend time painting, but you want a fresh look for the warmer seasons, maybe a splash of color that can be the centerpiece of the room? A new rug or wall hanging can give you the fresh update you are looking for without having to commit to a more permanent update. A little bit of color can go a long way and with rugs, throw pillows and wall hangings, so give it a try and see what works.

Each season brings with it, the chance to enjoy the comforts of home while celebrating the weather outside. Simple décor updates can make your home look and feel brand new and you don’t have to spend a lot of money to do it.
