Decorating Tips To Keep Summer Alive

Those who love summer always get a little sad when Labor Day rolls around. Traditionally, it has marked the end of summer fashions and the beginning of autumn. Even if you can’t keep summer alive when you’re out and about, you can make your home feel like summer all year round. Here are a few decorating tips to keep the summer vibes going!

Embrace Light
We have a tendency in the winter to gravitate toward darker colors. Homes can feel stuffy and sad in rainy or cold weather, so brighten things up with some light-colored décor. Embrace lighter-colored furniture, like Panama Jack’s beautiful, cottage-inspired Millbrook collection. From the bedroom to the dining room, you’ll feel like you’re on summer vacation. Even when it starts to snow, these pieces will remind you of days at the beach, tanning on the deck, or walking down the boardwalk.

Accent With Color
If you want to embrace summer with minimal effort, try changing out some of your accent pieces. Nothing says summer like a few brightly colored throw pillows or a tropical area rug. Bring the colors of summer inside your home with sky blues, grassy greens, and coral. You can also change out lamps and wall décor to help boost the summer feeling.

Use Summer Elements
If you like darker or neutral colors but still want your home to recall summer’s adventures, decorate with images and shapes from the beach. Roll out Panama Jack’s Palm Coast Area Rug for a subtle summer touch, or use a few palm-adorned throw pillows on your sofa. Beautiful Eco-Jack furniture can make any room in your home feel a little closer to the beach with acacia and Indonesian mahogany. You don’t have to go bold and bright to recall feelings of summer nights!

Don’t Stay Inside
Don’t let a chill in the air drive your evenings on the patio indoors! Panama Jack offers several outdoor patio furniture collections to suit any style. Whether you want a dining set for grilled meals under the stars or a tiki bar for entertaining, the outdoor fun can go on even after summer ends. Cozy up on a Key Biscayne Woven Sofa and enjoy cool nights around a fire pit. Bring a few blankets and set up a hot chocolate bar, complete with pumpkin spice whipped cream or mint-flavored marshmallows. Add some string lights for the final touch.

Patterns & Prints
Bring the fun of summer into your home with vibrant prints and patterned décor. For a casual splash of color, try Panama Jack’s Set Sail Area Rug beneath your coffee table. Dream of summer vacation with the Waves Signature Sheet Set. Too much of a pattern can be overbearing, so be sure to break it up with some solid colored furniture and textiles.
