Solstice Style: 3 Ways to Welcome Summer

Summer officially arrived last week as the sun scooted to its northernmost point from the equator to give us our longest day of light. Some would say it’s all downhill from here, but for us it’s the perfect time to welcome the sun in earnest.

Long, hot days can be brutish, and it’s a luxury if you don’t have to resort to a box fan whirring like a jet engine in the middle of the living room. So, how do you keep cool while also keeping your space calm?

Quiet Fan Technology

Fans have come a long way, and the best ceiling fan companies have come up with ways to cool you down without the cacophony.

Pro Tip: Compare airflow and airflow efficiency between brands and fans before you buy. The higher the number, the more air your fan will move, even at lower and quieter speeds.

Keep Fabrics Light

This goes for both color and weight. Dark, heavy fabrics can attract heat and store it, and it can also be visually stifling. That’s double trouble on a dank day.

Pro Tip: Try light (and lightweight) slipcovers on furniture with dark upholstery, and stow those dark, heavy linens until winter returns.

Dial Down Décor 

Too many tchotchkes can make us feel busy and stressed, which can make a room feel stuffier than it really is. Feeling cooler runs in tandem with feeling freer and that means creating more open space.

Pro Tip: Store blankets, throws and pillows that you won’t be using as much in the summer months, and put more space between furniture pieces for room to roam when things start to feel sticky.

Use these tricks to keep cool, or contact Decorist for even more ideas on how you can add breezy flair to your summer style.
