Choose the tone of the sofa cushions: green, yellow, crimson colours are welcome. By the way, you do not need to change the pillows themselves: just buy some unusual pillowcases. In our shop they are presented in a huge range.
In summer we strive to spend as much time outdoors as possible – for example, in parks and gardens. Create the same relaxing atmosphere at home will be possible thanks to the summer room decor of straw or vine. Of course, there is no reason to buy new chairs or tables for the living room: you just need accessories such as wicker baskets, flowerpots or vases braided with vine.
If you have a thick carpet in your living room, in summer it will be appropriate to replace it with a thin wicker or patchwork carpet. Pick up a tablecloth for your coffee table and napkins to match it. And in the relaxation area, cushions with a contrasting shade of pillowcases will be the decoration – you can put them right on the floor.

The bedroom is a place where color is very important. The green, blue, lilac and all their shades will be the most successful rooms for summer decor. They combine perfectly with white, not only making the room light and elegant, but also causing the illusion of coolness.
The main role in the decor of this room by the summer will play a textile. Bed linen decorated with bright poppies, beautiful butterflies or delicate lavender flowers will seem like a blooming meadow, and translucent curtains, passing soft moonlight, will create the perfect atmosphere for a good sleep.
A graceful addition to the summer decor of the room – live flowers in transparent glass vases or bouquets of artificial lavender twigs, as well as elegant statuettes of meadow inhabitants – birds and animals.
