Summer can be the perfect time to add a more natural look to your home decorating scheme. Beautiful colors from nature can add the perfect look to any room. Or, decorate your rooms with natural materials gathered from outdoors, or bouquets of fresh flowers cut from your own garden. You can also add natural beauty to your home by choosing art pieces and other decor that reflect nature and the summer season. If you’re ready to get your home ready for summertime enjoyment, here are a few decorating tips to help get you started.
It is almost that time of year when winter holiday decorations will be bombarding the malls and making their presence known on every lamppost and store front in town. While the glitter and glamour of winter holiday lights is appealing to commercial stores, for the homeowner, sometimes less is more. Instead of using the fake decorations sold by every discount department store this year, try adding natural elements in your winter holiday decorating.
For Christmas, the tree is usually the center of any home’s decor. You can carry this theme throughout the home by creating beautiful trees wall art from pine boughs that you gather from your backyard pine. Arrange them on shelves, atop fireplace mantels and in the center of the dining room table. While the tree may be located in another room of the house, the beauty and wonderful smell of the natural pine can be seen throughout the rest of the house. As a word of caution, always discard pine boughs that become dry and brittle, as they can be a fire hazard.
