Summer is here! Hot summer days filled with sunshine and bright blue skies end with relaxing sunsets. A refreshing, cold drink makes for the perfect break in the afternoon and scrumptious summer fruits have your mouth watering. From beach umbrellas to flip-flops, bright colors are everywhere you turn. Why not bring this bright summer feeling into your home décor? Here are 5 quick and simple ways to go bright this summer in your home!


Ready to go big and bold? Pick your favorite bright color and paint an accent wall in your room. You’ll get maximum impact with minimal investment. You'll be amazed how far a little paint can go- it will brighten the whole space up!

Window Treatments.

Dress your windows up for summer with bright curtains or shades. Window treatments can also help protect your room from that bright summer sun and even keep a room cooler. We love these bright yellow window treatments in this room design!

One of the easiest ways to add some bright colors to your décor is with accessories. It’s also the safest way to experiment with bright colors since you can easily swap out accessories if they’re not working. This is a great option if you already have a neutral room. From pillows to wall art, you’ll find plenty of bright options to accessorize with.

Accent Furniture.

If you’re looking for something a little more permanent but not ready to commit to a bright wall, you can add some brightly color furnishings. An accent chair, a table, or a brightly colored sofa can add the brightness you crave this summer.



Whether it’s wall to wall bright or a stunning accent rug, don’t forget that your floors can be a great place to add color. Remember, if you’re going bright on the floors, keep the rest of the room fairly neutral. An outdoor space is the perfect place to start. Experiment with a bright floral area rug.
