Endless Summer: Add Sunshine to Your Home Year-Round!

Bring summer warmth and brightness into your home all year long by incorporating vibrant colours and other summer-inspired touches. Here are some tips to make your space feel sunny, relaxed and welcoming – no matter what the season.  

1. Choose Summer-Inspired Paint Colours

Start by selecting light, airy or vibrant paint colours that remind you of relaxed summer days. Shades of soft yellow, light blue, pale green and crisp white can brighten up any room. If you’re looking for something more lively or energetic, get inspired by geranium reds, mossy greens or swimming pool blues and aquas. Try Cloverdale Paint colours like our red/pink Party Time (1109, ColourIs Collection), aqua Cyan Sky (0681, ColourIs Collection) or Summer Blush (0068, ColourIs Collection). 

2. Incorporate Natural Elements

Bring the outdoors in by incorporating natural elements that have personal meaning for you. Accessorize with acorns, pinecones, dried flowers, moss-covered branches and more.  Add indoor plants to your living spaces to create a vibrant, fresh look. Use woven baskets for storage and display fresh flowers in vases that will add a splash of much-needed colour and fragrance in the winter months. Pair with nature-inspired Cloverdale Paint colours like Clear Skies (CA189, Artisan Collection), Pumice Stone (0016, ColourIs Collection) or Sawgrass Cottage (0399, ColourIs Collection). 

3. Use Light Fabrics 

Exchange heavy fabrics for light, airy ones to maintain a summer feel. Choose cotton or linen curtains, throw pillows, and bedding in light colours and breezy patterns. These materials add a casual, relaxed vibe to your home, making it feel like a summer retreat year-round. Pair with breezy Cloverdale Paint colours like Clean Air (0783, ColourIs Collection) or Calm Breeze (0461, ColourIs Collection). 

4. Add Beachy Accessories

Accessorize with items that remind you of summers at the beach. Incorporate seashells, driftwood, sand dollars or coastal artwork. Add a tabletop zen garden so you can play in the sand year-round. 

5. Create Bright and Open Spaces

Maximize natural light by keeping windows clean and free of branches and other obstructions outside. Strategically place mirrors to reflect light and make your space feel larger and brighter. Reduce clutter and go for a minimalist look to keep rooms feeling open and airy.
