8 Small Touches That Will Brighten Up Your Home For Summer
If you're someone who gravitates toward a neutral color palette when it comes to interior decor, you're not alone. Inviting bold decor into your house can be scary; you don't want your space to feel busy or overwhelming. After all, your home should be a place of solace and comfort.
To ease into an eclectic summer style with a hint of flair, look to small pieces with bold hues, interesting silhouettes, and distinct patterns. That's where AllModern comes in: its summer collection centers around pops of bright, midcentury-modern hues that channel the relaxed California-cool vibe. Not to mention, the high-quality, curated pieces that will get to your front door in no time with free shipping. Whether it's a contemporary desk lamp or a funky side table, scroll through to find the approachable touches that will brighten up your home just in time for summer.
Artwork is a subtle way to welcome bright colors and patterns into your space. But if you're not ready to invest in an original painting, try picking up this print ($159). It is printed on high-quality paper and comes in three different framed finishes. At first glance, your guests might believe it's a one-of-a-kind piece.
Round Cocktail Ottoman
If you want a comfortable place to rest your feet, swap out that coffee table for a cocktail ottoman. This one ($145, originally $256) comes in a contemporary shape with a fabric that's designed to resist scratches and stains, making it the ideal choice for a busy living room. Try adding a tray table on top so you can also use it as a place to rest drinks and snacks.
When it comes to picking a throw blanket, you want something that's chic and comfortable — like this option ($190, originally $294). The gorgeous pattern and contemporary colorways will elevate any couch it's draped across. Bonus: you can throw it in the washing machine, so you don't have to worry about crumbs while snacking and streaming.
Ceramic Table Vase
Whether you frequently host outdoor dinner parties or just want to accessorize an entryway table, this vase ($66, originally $82) can be used both indoors or outdoors. It comes in a few different colors to match the distinct vibe of your interior decor style.
Tufted Wool Area Rug
While white and beige rugs seem great in theory, they reveal the tiniest bits of dirt, which can make your room look messier than it actually is. This rug ($335) has an eclectic pattern that brings some much-needed brightness to any room. Not to mention, the durable textile makes it an ideal rug for any high-traffic area.
Tripod Table Lamp
If you're looking for an easy way to elevate your desk, try upgrading your lighting. This tripod lamp ($112, originally $162) draws inspiration from midcentury design and comes in a bright blue tone that will instantly modernize your work space. But if you prefer something more minimalist, the lamp is available in two other muted finishes: black and white.
