Declutter

Before adding some decor and pieces to the room, just declutter it to have space for those changes. This is especially crucial in small living rooms where space is at a premium. Enlist the help of storage baskets, floating bookshelves, and coffee tables and ottomans with built-in compartments that let you easily stow things out of sight. Your home will feel airy and breezy and that means that it’s high time to decorate for summer!

Bring In Bright Colors

Bright hues are the easiest way to scream summer in any space, and that doesn’t mean you should use neon, you can go for bright or even muted colors that are usually about summer – greens, ocean blues, sunset pinks and orange tones. If you don’t want to have drastic changes in the room, think of rocking colors with accessories and textiles, that’s the easiest way to go for them.

Get Some Plants

What it comes to foolproof summer home decor, there’s nothing better than adding vibrant greenery and statement plants to the space – this idea works for any size and any room design. A fiddle-leaf ficus tree is always a welcome sight in a living room, but if you’re hesitant about big plants, try smaller ones like a snake plant or philodendron, which provide a lot of visual texture. If you want a desert feel in the room, cacti and succulents are your solution, they look super cute and can be arranged in a cool way to create a real artwork.
