Adding a Summer Flair to Your Home


Summer is officially here, and that means it’s completely acceptable for your home to reflect this warm and adventurous season. Whether you want to create a lake atmosphere with nautical style, or a bright, warm and inviting place with flowers and exciting colors - this is the season to try out these different styles. At John Elliott Interiors, we have everything you need to add some summer to your interior design, and today we’re going to feature a few tips to help you get there!

Incorporate Fun Colors

This is the perfect time to use fun colors, interesting patterns, and maybe even go a little wild in your choices. Have you always wanted to try out a bright yellow shade in your living room? Nothing screams summer like a bright shade of sunshine yellow! If you’re nervous about including the color in your home, you can start with accent pillows and floral arrangements to let you see how it will look in your space.

Try New Fabrics

It’s time to trade out those bulky warm fabrics for lighter, brighter, and cooler fabrics. While your flannel pillows were great in the fall and through Christmas, you may want to opt for a satin or light cotton now that the weather is warm. Changing out your curtains may be in order as well, but keep in mind, if you keep odd hours, the sun will be out more than it is all year, so if you need to sleep in or go to bed early, you may still want to include blackout curtains over your windows or a nice shade.

Bring the Outdoors Indoors

Nothing says summer like bright flowers and fresh greenery. Of course, if you don’t have much of a green thumb, John Elliott Interiors is here to help! We have a showroom filled with beautiful faux plants and trees that will add life to your space without the added work!

Finish With Accessories

Finally, the last thing you should take a look at is your accessories. This can be a great way to change up a space without having to do much - while also keeping things period appropriate. If you have a beautiful image of a flower garden, you may want to keep it out only in the spring and summer months, and then pull out your winter scenes towards the end of the year.
