Summer Design Ideas for Your Home

10 January 2019

Summerís are the best time to spruce up the appearance of your home. Although redecorating is a time-consuming task, it’s always an exciting thing to do especially if you’ve been wanting to freshen up things both inside and outside of the house. Along with proper budgeting, you’ll need a lot of creativity to turn a once dull and boring look into a bright, summery vibe. Here are some summer decorating ideas from Fort Knox Storage Carrara you can try out.

Create a mini indoor jungle

Getting greens inside your home is never a bad idea, especially in the summers when there’s always a need to look at something that’s pleasing to the eyes. But instead of potted plants, try climbing plants. You’re probably used to seeing them outside on pergolas, but twisty, winding plants can look super chic inside your home as well.

You can have a winding plant installed in your living room, maybe behind the couch. Getting plants to grow in a twisty fashion can be very hard, but you can start with an ivy tree to simulate a jungle-feel in your living space.
