Summer is the time when everyone wants to be outside enjoying the warm weather and splashy water fun. As energizing as summer can be, at the end of the day when hearts turn toward home, it can be nice to rearrange home living room furniture to add a little summer spice to the living environment.
With the fireplace no longer in use after cooler temperatures, brighten up living spaces by moving living room chair and sofa combinations away from the hearth. Shifting focus to another area of the room like French doors leading to a patio or even a media center area will create a new energy in the room.
Living room accessories like area rugs can be switched to lighter sisal or sea grass rugs to give the room a more summery feel. Removing rugs completely will reveal the bare wood or tile underneath and make the room feel cooler during hot spells. Also exchanging heavy drapes and curtains for sheers can lighten and brighten the room. If the living area sits near outdoor patios, hanging twinkle lights or paper lanterns on nearby trees will help bring the outdoors inside when viewed through gossamer sheers as they lift gently in the breeze.
Summer entertaining isn’t complete without fresh fruit and drinks for impromptu guests. Setting up a bar area on a buffet or side table with accessories and wines ready and available will make it easy to prepare libations and treats when visitors arrive.
