Summer is Coming
A wise homeowner would do well to take the signs of summer’s approach as an opportunity to get ahead of the heat and start decorating one’s home to reflect the change in temperature and mood. Those beautiful deep, rich, dark colors of winter should go away during summer weather. Darker colors attract heat, making it nearly impossible to turn a room comfortable and cool. This doesn’t mean, however, that summer colors must be bland.
On the contrary! The latest trend in summer colors are bright and beautiful greens. Splashes of vibrant greens can accent softer whites and beige décor, while providing a continuous bold display of color for your home during the summer months.
But color alone can’t keep you cool. If the goal is to be cool using 2013 summer color trends AND to stay cool, then you should consider colorful sun-beating options for your home’s interior. Here are some things to keep in mind for the summer of 2013.
A Summer of Color and Comfort
This summer is expected to be a celebration of bright, bold color. Splashes of green on bedspreads, rugs and even curtains can transform your home into an ideal summer getaway. Changing out window blinds can also add to your summer theme. Lightly colored blinds can blend well with the greens of the upcoming summer and provide added protection from the sun.
Other Accents to Consider for Your Blinds this Summer
Along with this year’s vibrant green as a preferred summer color, other outdoorsy accents are also being used. Bamboo, oak, reed and other earthy, woodsy accented blinds work well with most spring and summer accents and provide effective refuge from the sun on a hot summer’s day. These styles of blinds are a popular choice due to their durability and flexibility with other seasonal colors.
Customize Your Cool with Custom Blinds
One thing to keep in mind is that not all blinds will work for all windows. Even if you can find the ideal summer blinds to match your summer colors, if they don’t optimally block the sun’s rays, then you’re all fashion and no form. Custom blinds have become a trend with home owners as they can better match your home’s interior as well work better with the shape and form of your windows. Store-bought blinds can only provide so much sun blockage and style. So if you’re looking to t up the cool of your home’s interior this summer, consider custom window blinds.
