Giving Your Home a “Costume” for the Season
Summertime is gorgeous even in northern places like Alaska, where if you blink at the wrong time you might miss it. Jokes aside, when things get hot, you want to get in all the outdoor activities you can.
You want to encourage the warm spirit of the time, and a great way to do that is decoratively. Going the floral route is to be recommended, especially given how archetypal flowers are to seasons of bloom. Flowers are appropriate for any festive situation.
In that sense, all flowers might be considered holiday flowers; but there’s a specific connotation with the term. Here we’ll explore several ways you can decorate using flowers and other means in an affordable way that matches the season.
If you’re not familiar, Hawaiian leis are basically floral necklaces, or wreathes, which are famous for their relationship to the islands of America’s tropical state. Everyone imagines exiting the airplane while a few hula girls drape leis about their shoulders, and they go off to enjoy some tropical bliss on the islands.
Well, you don’t have to wear leis to decorate with them. They can be hung on walls, on doors, in bedrooms, or used to outline a centerpiece on a table.
New Curtains With a Tropical Design
Curtains are an easy decorative upgrade. Tropical curtains are perfect for summer, and you can sub them out with curtains designed for fall, winter, or spring as the seasons change. You can find such curtains online, you can find such curtains in department stores, and in a variety of other places.
Having tropical curtains available represents about a half-hour “chore”, and when you’re done, suddenly the interior décor of your house has a totally new “feel” to it.
Changing the Lighting Arrangement of Your Home
This one is fun and easy. Buy LED lightbulbs that have IoT or bluetooth connectivity, and can be manipulated from an app on your smartphone. Now, all you have to do to change the coloration of lighting in a room is pull out your phone, tap the app, and adjust internal hues to fit your preferences. You can put such lights on the outside of your home as well.
Different sorts of LED options exist here, some don’t include IoT options that incorporate smartphone apps. Do a little searching online for the best results, but these days you can probably find such adjustable LEDs in a Walmart or a Home Depot.
Make a Home Look Like It’s Enjoying Summer as Much as You
Changing the lighting arrangement of your home with LEDs can make it so, that any time of the year, you have the ability to switch illumination coloration to match whatever is going on outside. Changing the curtains to match the season is another simple, affordable step that changes the whole character of your home. Using Hawaiian leis is also a fine seasonal move.
Certainly, there are plenty of other ways to decorate your home in accordance with the season. Look at your house, look at the local ecology of your climate, and find options that resonate with you and your community.
