Summertime is a time of joy where the pleasant breeze plays a soft rustling note on trees and the aroma of ripening mangoes fill the neighbourhood. The season also brings with it lots of sunshine and plenty of opportunities to transform your home into an oasis of tranquillity. Here are five helpful tips to spruce up your home interiors for the summer and make your home a summertime sanctuary.
- A game of cane and colours
Cane backed couches and brightly coloured pillows can make a world of difference to your summer home.
Indoor spaces can sometimes feel stuffy during summers. If you’re redecorating or simply looking to change things up a bit, look for cane backed furniture like our Baza couch to get that superior breathability and comfort as you settle down to relax on those warm summer evenings. Woven cane also adds character to the home while taking inspiration from traditional forms of Indian furniture craftsmanship. Prop up a few brightly coloured pillows on your couch to make your couch seem more welcoming. No matter what time of year it is, adding a little lighthearted fun to your decor can make all the difference.
- The outdoors beckon
Make the most of the summer with a comfortable outdoor seating area.
While most of us shy away from the summer heat, summertime can also be a great time to spend outdoors in your yard or garden area. But with a busy schedule and limited space, it can be hard to find a place to relax and take in the scent of summer blooms. So, why not install some comfortable outdoor chairs or our classic Cordoba bench under the shade of a tree? You can also explore ABACA’s range of outdoor furniture right in our store. With plenty of options to choose from, you will be all set for any time you feel like relaxing outdoors! Just don’t forget your sunscreen.
- For the love of blinds and drapes
Hang up some textured curtains or drapes and escape from the summer heat.
Add some colourful drapes and create a space that is both vibrant and relaxing. Drapes or curtains also act as a great way to create privacy while also offering an irresistible escape from the summer heat. Explore our selection of drapes by Yavanika, our in-house furnishing brand and choose some vibrant colors and you can inject a sense of summertime fun and frolic into your living space. You can let the sun shower in through sheer drapes to brighten your home during the day, and light up your space with bright lanterns at night (more on that next).
- Lighting your home up
Choose the right lighting for your living space.
- Beat the heat with refreshments
Prep your home and yourself with some summertime comforts
After a long hot day, it’s hard to resist coming inside and grabbing a drink to cool you down. So, make sure you have plenty of refreshing beverages available. Keep cold drinks, iced tea, and lemonade on hand so that you and your guests can stay cool and refreshed all day long. If you like your single malt neat or if you’re more of a wine-person, our Madhusala bar unit can be the perfect summertime add-on you’re looking for.
So don’t let that summer heat bog you down! With a few easy tweaks, your home can become the perfect oasis of tranquillity for you this summer.
