What Are Some Hot Summer Decorating Trends?

The temperature is rising, and it's time to start thinking about summer. If you're looking to spruce up your summer home decoration, Cardi's Furniture & Mattresses is here to help. Here are some of the hottest trends coming your way.

  • Barrel back chairs have a rounded, low curve to the silhouette. These chairs are lovely in an understated and simple way with their clean lines. However, they're also super comfortable as they hug your body. They're available as part of a complete outdoor dining set for your summer enjoyment.
  • Outdoor furniture with or without cushions is an innovative way to outfit your summer living space. Creative designers found a way to give you comfort and beauty without cloth cushions to keep clean. When a summer storm blows through, you don't have to worry about your pillows flying into the neighbors' yard.
  • Modern styling with clean lines and simple materials is taking summer homes by storm. Matte finishes, low-profile designs, and simple frames make these pieces versatile enough to go with every decor style. Low-profile pieces with simple lines and fabrics cut down on the look of clutter and minimize maintenance.
  • Focus on neutral colors when decorating outdoors. Grey, ivory, and white never go out of style, and chambray is hot this summer.
  • Consider outdoor lighting. Patio and pathway lighting is an enduring trend that adds hours to your enjoyment of your outdoor space. It also makes your home safer and more welcoming to guests.
