Transitioning Your Home from Winter to Summer


Part ways with your cosy winter decor and embrace summer style in your home with Joe Browns vibrant homeware collection

With a new season comes an exciting opportunity for a home decor shake-up. In the summertime, this might mean adding bursts of sunshine hues, opting for fabrics that keep things cool and embracing patterns that bring the sun inside. 

In this inspiration guide, we’ll cover all the ways you can take your home from winter to summer, from subtle touches to decor pieces that completely rejuvenate your interior.


Start with a Refreshing Spring Clean


Before adding summer touches to your home, declutter your space ready for your new decor. Whether that’s by putting your winter homeware into storage or throwing out the things you no longer need, it’s the perfect way to begin an interior revitalisation. 

Why not start decluttering by condensing your wardrobe? Our guide to capsule wardrobes can lend a helping hand. 

Another way to refresh your space before adding new home accessories is by rearranging your furniture. Not only does this shake up the style of a room, but it can also have great practical benefits. 

Certain seating placements that worked wonderfully in winter might fall victim to sun-glare in the summer, meaning a little manoeuvring is needed to keep you sitting comfortably.

Make Your Home Light and Airy for Summer


While cosiness was key in winter, summer has us craving light and airiness to make the most of the longer, sun-lit evenings.

One way to achieve this is by switching out heavy winter curtains for lighter curtains in bright and airy colours. This will give the room an instant lift, breathing new life into your space.

Another way to bring light and airy style into your home in summer is by savouring all the lovely natural light we get at this time of year. By placing a mirror above your mantlepiece or opposite a window, you’ll optimise the stunning summer sunlight in your home.

Decorate your Home with Summer Colours


Summer is all about light and vibrant colours. Orange and yellow home decor is a perfect way to bring the sunshine of the outdoors into our home, while bright blues can pay perfect homage to the summer sky outside.

One of the simplest ways to take your home from winter to summer is to replace rich, dark-hued home accessories with pastel-coloured pieces to help the home feel light and airy. 

Why not include these summer colour accents with cushions and throws? Pop sunny yellow or pretty pink furnishings on your couch or bed to instantly elevate that summer feeling. Whatever colour you decide on, just ensure it’s vibrant and zesty to really embody the summer season.

Embrace Nature with Floral Summer Homeware


Another way of adding summer touches to your home is with subtle nods to nature. The summer outdoors is filled with gorgeous greenery and pretty flowers, so why not introduce some of that indoors, too?

Put fresh flowers from outdoors in a vase for a beautiful coffee table centrepiece or on the mantle. Or try faux flowers so you don’t need to replace your bouquet regularly. 

Floral homeware is also perfect for incorporating natural touches into your home - from floral patterned bedding to flowery cushions and throws, summer flowers certainly aren’t just for the garden.

Style Your Bedroom for Summer Slumber


On those hotter nights, it’s time to switch your bedding from the snug duvets of winter to a lighter and cooler choice of sheets.

Swap your toasty winter duvet for a thin duvet of a lower tog. Tog stands for Thermal Overall Grade, (A.K.A: How warm your duvet is). The best tog for summer is usually a 4.5. 

Make sure you’re sleeping in a breathable bedsheet material, too. Cotton is perfect for summer sleep as being a natural fibre makes it super breathable, and it’s moisture-wicking too! 

Our Joe Browns bedsheets are made from 200-thread count cotton for you to snooze in complete comfort. Take a look at our bedsheet guide to learn more.

Don’t Throw Out Throws


You might associate throws with winter home decor, but there’s no need to sacrifice the comforting sensation of wrapping yourself with a blanket in summer. Switch out your fluffy winter throws for lightweight materials in summery hues and patterns rather than discarding your throws altogether. 

Keep these throws close by, laid over your sofa arm or hung on your headboard. On the hottest nights, sleeping under a light throw can be much more comfortable than a duvet - even a low tog one may be too hot when the spontaneous summer heat waves hit!

Try Tropical Styles


Not heading on a summer holiday this year? Inject the vacation vibes into your home instead with tropical patterns and home accessories.

Whether you’re dotting exotic-inspired ornaments about the home or enjoying cushions with animal prints, you’ll feel like you’re in a tropical location in your own house or flat.

Summer Dining Design


Don’t just focus on the bedroom and living room with your seasonal decor switch-up. Mealtimes can also be enhanced with summery vibes.

Brightly coloured plates and bowls can bring sunshine to every breakfast, lunch or dinner. Why not add even more vibrance with a colourful table runner to elevate your dining ensemble further?

A new table centrepiece is also a fun way to signify a new season. Try adding a vase to host your beautiful summer blooms, or opt for an exotic animal sculpture to create an interesting talking point when hosting dinner party guests.

Celebrate Summer Memories


Another way of transitioning your home from winter to summer is to fill the space with memories of summers gone by. Fill your picture frames with photos from holidays, barbecues and picnics of previous summers - you’re sure to smile whenever you look at them, and they’re a wonderful conversation starter with guests.

Finish with Summer Scents


Adding summer touches to your home doesn’t always have to be visual - aromas can also influence the atmosphere of a space.

Bring the sweet scents of summer into every room with candles. Swap the spiced berry and gingerbread scents from winter for fresh floral candles and tropical fruit fragrance sticks to fill your home with freshness. 

Linen and cotton-scented candles will provide a clean, fresh smell, while zesty citrus fruits, such as mandarin and lemon, will provide a blissfully fruity fragrance.
