Get your home summer-ready with these tips and tricks to give your home that awesome summer atmosphere

Summer is fast approaching but if you still haven’t decided whether to just brighten up your home or create an artistic and imaginative living space, you may want to consider channeling your creativity and matching your home décor with the season. Here are some summer home décor ideas to bring out that wonderful summer vibe.

Repaint it
As always, repainting the walls and/or ceiling of your home is a valid option. If you choose to repaint your walls, choose cool, vibrant colors to reflect summer joie de vivre. Blue hues, especially light ones, conjure images of clear blue skies reflected upon vast oceans and seas. Bright yellows and greens bring with them the image of the Earth’s flora at its peak. Close your eyes and imagine your favorite summer activity and think of the color it resembles most so you can apply it to your home.

Keep your eyes sharp and clear through simple adjustments with your home décor

Home décor shouldn’t just be aesthetically pleasing and comfortable; it should be easy on the eyes as well. Since May is Healthy Vision Month, Treetopia has gathered some tips and tricks on how to brighten up your home to reduce strain on your eyes.

Organize!

It seems simple enough but what exactly does organizing have to do with clear eyesight? Well, the answer is also simple. The more clutter you have lying around the house, the more dust and dirt gather in your home.

Rekindle your youthful spirit with fantabulous home décor

You might be working full time in that high-end office building or immersing yourself in more mature culture, but that doesn’t mean you must set aside what inspired or amused you in your youth.  If there’s one place where you can take a break from facing serious matters and feeling old every day, it would be your home.  Come check out these awesome ideas on how to revive the energy and creativity of your youth.

Bought or Made

As with anything worthwhile, remodeling or redecorating takes time. Exactly how much time you need to set aside for your home improvement project depends largely on whether you prefer to purchase the décor or make it yourself. If it’s the former, it won’t take up so much time because you only need to install hooks or nails where you would attach art or clean up a bit to allocate space for the décor. However, if you choose to make your own because you can’t find one that matches what you want, plan ahead and set aside enough time to implement your plans.
