Ideas For Your Summer House That Will Brighten Up Your Leisure Time
With summer on its way, in no time many of us will be expecting to go back to our summer houses. After a long and arduous winter, we all hope to relax to shake off the fatigue of the year with a comfy, relaxing summer.
A lot of people will be going back to the same summer house as they do every year. But if you don't want to go back to the same place every summer, why not try something new while decorating your summer house?
A new interior and exterior design approach will keep things interesting and make you feel like you are in a different place than last year. So here are some interior and exterior design ideas for your summer house.
Light Sheers For Natural Sunlight
So many of us associate summer with running away from sunlight that shouldn’t be the case. You can’t underestimate the importance of natural sunlight to the whole mood of your summer house. Allowing a soft stream of sunlight through your sheers will liven up your living space and boost your spirits throughout the summer.
Try using a light pair of sheers on your windows to allow some sunlight into your rooms. The extra sunlight will create a brighter and spacy mood for your house and immediately change the vibe.
Create an Outside Living Space in Your Patio
If you are lucky enough to have a spare room in your yard, you should get some use out of it. We all deserve a warm breezy afternoon after shielding away from the harsh weather for the past couple of months. You should try creating a nice living space to spend some much-needed leisure time. This will allow you to not get stuck inside longer than you have to.
Start with benches and tables. Then if the idea starts warming up on your buy a couple of sunloungers to kick back on. Furnish those sunloungers with comfy handcrafted pillow like the ones we create in Handan Loomworks.

Indoor Plants To Keep It Colorful
It can’t be overstated how important the color scheme of your interior design is. The colors will determine the whole vibe of your place. If you want to create a more colorful living space without overdoing it, indoor plants can be a great way to do that.
Having a couple of pots of red aglaonemas will give you interiors a nice, gentle red that goes along well with the neutral scheme that we love using here in Handan Loomworks.
Hanging a pot of string of pearls in your kitchen can give the place a more natural look. This plant is especially good for beginner gardeners considering it requires almost no maintenance.
Extra sunlight you get thanks to your sheers will help these plants soak in the sun and grow.
Try an Eclectic Approach
You don’t have to stick to a single approach to create your interior design magnum opus. It’s your summer house after all so just do the things that will best fit your style. Pick individual items that you adore and try to create your own personal approach.
If you want to go for a more bohemian look, find some space for antique pieces to create a vintage vibe. Utilize playful patterns to give your interiors a more vibrant feeling at your summer house.
Or like so many other people nowadays, dedicate more space to furnishing that displays expert craftsmanship like a handwoven rug like you can find in our online store.

A Modest Home Bar
If you don’t feel like going out on a summer night and just want to relax indoors, you can make things more interesting with a small house bar. This way you don’t have to go outside for a refreshing cocktail, you can just make one on your own.
There are a couple of ways you can go with this but we advise you to start off simple. You can empty a cabinet you have in your living room or kitchen and fill them with a few bottles. Later, get some highball and rocks glasses and display them on your new bar. Buy some of the essential cocktail-making tools like a shaker and a strainer and you have a full-fledged home bar in your summer house.
The bottles and fresh garnish you have on your bar will act as décor so choose them carefully.
These are just some of the things you can do to freshen up your summer house. Don’t get stuck in your same old way and try to find a way to make things interesting this summer. What you put in your summer house just depends on what you want to do with the extra space you have. Just make changes that you think would improve your summer house and make your leisure time more fun this year.
