Summer feels so good, so why not prolong that vacation feel even after the season ends? Trust us; it’s easy to give your rental a year-round summer atmosphere! Colour, well-chosen furniture, and a play on materials and accessories, you can give your rental’s interior a holiday feel. Here’s the proof…

 

Colours

White, turquoise and navy blue are colours that evoke the seaside. You can play with these tones either on the walls themselves or via decorative elements such as linen.

The garden furniture

Bring outdoor furniture inside and you’ll automatically create the relaxing touch of a summer décor. Garden table and chairs, a hammock, swing, bunks and hanging chairs… all find their place indoors in conjunction with cosy cushions.

Natural materials

Bring nature into your home to create the change of scenery that is sought after during the summer. Use large tropical leaves, shells, driftwood, logs, wicker or rattan to bring summer home. Note: add these natural materials in small doses to keep that summer feel subtle and fresh.

The accessories

Personality is in the details, so don’t hesitate to go around the cupboards, attic or garage to find objects that evoke the summer: an oar, a surfboard, ropes... all these little touches will bring originality to your décor without spending a dime!

Textiles are a great place to start. Think cushions, curtains and tablecloths, which with a splash of colour create that summer feel. A mirror shaped like the sun or a porthole are also a must-have accessory.

And why not display all those holiday memories that you’ve collected over the years? Show off your hats, plates, baskets etc… Gather them together on one wall to create a highlighted summer gallery.
