Embrace the summer season with bright and airy decor. Sunny colors and breezy textures can liven up any indoor or outdoor space, and the good news is, you don’t have to break the bank to brighten your abode. Cushion covers and beachy accessories in a variety of inspired patterns and fabrics will freshen up your outdoor furniture this summer season.
The Season of Simple Pleasures
Warmer temperatures and longer days make summer the perfect season to spend more time outdoors and the opportunity to enjoy your carefully curated backyard space. Simple touches can help you make your outdoor space an even funner and more relaxing destination that your family and friends will not want to leave all summer long.
Outdoor string lights, tiki torches, fire pits, and candles add ambiance to those relaxing summer evenings. Speakers provide the music you need to set the tone, and exterior curtains give your porch or patio space an element of personalization and privacy. Give your backyard some beach vibes with summer accessories and festive prints and patterns. Bright colors and cooling textures bring a festive flair to your patio furniture and cushion covers to make them fit for summer fun and relaxation.
Carry the spirit of summer inside your home too. Decorative elements like throws, pillows and couch covers make your interior mainstays look like you are at a beach house. Seasonal cookware, cups, and dishes give an element of ocean vibes to your at-home dining experience. These small changes set the mood for a season spent soaking up the sun and enjoying life at a slower pace.
Beach Worthy Hues
Finding your perfect summer color palette will really make your home feel like a bright, beachy oasis. The season’s colors are all about things light and airy ⏤ think summery yellows, cool, coastal blues, and luscious greens and jewel tones.
Beige represents bright, sandy beaches and plays well as a complimentary color choice. Beige pairs well with blue hues to amp up a nautical theme. Crips white, light blues and rich navy tones will make you feel as though you are sailing the high seas. If you want something more subdued for a calming space, seafoam green would play well with beige and white tones too. You could even swap one of these colors out and add gray for a soft yet modern take on summer decor. Finish off the look by adding a nautically printed sectional cover to the space for a fun twist to your furniture’s summer style.
If you want something that packs a brighter punch, look for fabrics and accessories in the coral and bright aqua hues for a coastal contrast that will add summer cheer to any atmosphere. Yellow, white, and navy is another bright color combination that works well for a brighter beachy vibe. These bright palettes look amazing with summer themed prints and patterns. Place pillows and covers with seashells, sailboats, polka dots or stripes prints on your furniture for a spirited seasonal addition.
Fabrics Fit for Relaxation
Finding the perfect summer textiles is all about design, texture, and durability. Breezy fabrics are best for beating the heat but certain fabrics hold up in the summer sun better than others. There are some things to keep in mind when shopping for interior and exterior summer fabrics.
UV resistant polyester is the best choice for bigger outdoor pieces like bench covers, outdoor couch covers, or grill covers. Fabrics that are waterproof, wind resistant, and come with great warranties make great choices for larger-sized outdoor items. Protecting your backyard furniture doesn’t have to be boring. You can get these covers in an array of beachy hues and earth tones to complete your stylish summer patio.
When searching for outdoor options, durability and UV protection should also be your top priority. Thankfully, you do not have to compromise style for usability. There are durable yet breezy options that make perfect outdoor choices that will provide comfort and sophistication this season. Add in waterproof to your list of fabric must-haves and you’ll know your covers will hold up on rainy days as well as look great for poolside couch covers and lounge chair pillows.
Bring Outside In
Interior design options should focus on lightweight, breezy fabric feel. If you’re looking for an inexpensive yet chic fabric to beat the summer heat, you can’t go wrong with cotton. This breathable fabric is fit for cooling off from the hot summer sun because it wicks away excess moisture. Cotton is very affordable and there is a wide selection of cotton pillows, throws, curtains and slipcovers for you to choose from for your summer stylings.
Design Your Dream Destination
Summer-inspired patterns can add a fun element to your seasonal accessories. Play up the summer vibe with printed couch covers. You can customize your covers with summer sayings or images of beaches, fish, seashells or anything else you can imagine. Matching pillows and cushion covers will tie this look together. These custom covers add an element of summer fun to their durable purpose.
