3 Creative Ways To Add Color To Your Home This Summer

The season of sun and sand is here! Home decoration might be the last thing on your mind, but it’s a fun way to usher in the summer.

While for us in Dubai that means pretty much all year round, it’s still an excuse to spend more time at the beach. At a time when colors and sundresses come out to play, there’s no reason why our homes can’t join the fun too!

Here are 5 creative ways to color up your flat or villa this summer and have fun with home decoration

1. Indoor Plants

And no, we don’t mean bring in sand—we’re thinking more along the lines of greenery and potted plants. Having living, breathing plants inside your home gives something fresh for your eyes to look at, not to mention some fresh air and a sense of calm.

You can opt for low maintenance indoor plants such as the Peace Lilly and Pothos. Both will hold up well in low light conditions. There’s also the Areca palm which is known to mop up pollutants and help prevent sinus problems and colds. You’ll be surprised at the many benefits of indoor plants besides beautifying your home!

3. Let The Light In

Perhaps the easiest way to bring summer into your bedroom is to change your sheets, cushions, and curtains into bright colored ones.

Ditch the somber neutrals you are probably using right now and get creative!

Think a lemon-yellow duvet cover and pillowcase oozing with summer vibes. You can even use a muted aqua-colored rug or curtains to add contrast et voila! You just turned your bedroom into a beach haven—well, at least aesthetically.
