If you love summer, you can make sure your living space looks summery all year long with these fun design ideas.

Eye-popping hues

When you think of summer, you think of bright, cheerful colors. They can be used in your home decor as accents or to build the entire room around.

Sheer window treatments

Keep the natural light cascading indoors with sheer, flowing window treatments.

Bright ceilings

A bright ceiling can really help lighten up a room, no matter the season. I adore this kitchen, which features a cheerful ceiling that is decked out in tin tiles.

Bring outdoor furniture inside

Who says you have to go outside to feel summery? Adding some of your favorite outdoorsy pieces to your inside space can definitely give it more of a summer feel.

Embrace a beachy theme

Whether you live near the beach or not, a few colorful beachy towels on display can remind you of hitting the pool.

Board and batten walls

This wall decor style is often used in traditional beach cottages or homes, and will give your chosen room a very summery feel.

Colorful pillows

If you're not up to painting your home, add a few splashes of summery color with brightly colored accent pillows.
