Many of us look forward to summer not just because of the vacations we can plan, it also brings a laid-back vibe that makes us want to rest, take it easy, and reward ourselves with a much-deserved break. The season is also an excuse to update the home with cheerful accessories and easy updates that are easy on the pocket. If you want to experience the chill vibe of summer all throughout the year, here are ideas you can work on—inspired by some of our favorite spaces:

1. Set up a reading nook by the window.

Free time is best spent with a good book, a cold drink, and your favorite snack. Turn an unused corner near the window into your reading nook by placing a comfy chair and a side table to hold your reading paraphernalia. If you've allotted a budget for a decor upgrade this year, you may want to reward yourself with a comfy new chair for your special place. Visit your favorite home store to source for options.

2. Pick a refreshing color accent for your next paint project.

When it comes to giving your home a makeover with a fresh coat of paint, don't limit yourself to crowd favorites like blue and green. Seafoam green and mint are cool alternatives you can consider as these eare easy on the eyes and can make you feel refreshed in an instant. Instead of painting the walls, start with shelves and accessories to slowly inject these colors into your home.

Pops of yellow can liven up even the tiniest of spaces. Don't settle for pillows and throws when using this lively pick in your home! Consider getting stools and chairs in a vibrant shade to create an impact. For a more subtle option, shop for wall accents with hints of this cheerful color to spruce up blank walls.

4. Bring indoor plants.

While succulents and cacti are cute and perfect as tabletop decor, indoor plants in bigger pots can complete your home's look while keeping your home safe and inviting. Shop for green wonders that can help clean indoor air to make sure the air you breathe at home is free from toxins and other harmful chemicals. Indoor plants are best displayed in the foyer, living area, and kitchen for starters.
