The house must adapt to each season with a decoration that adjusts to the needs of the season and makes it the perfect refuge at any time of the year.

1. Spring redistribution
The simplest option to put a home in ‘spring-summer mode’ is flip the existing layout, that enhances the feeling and illusion of brand new home. It will be enough to remove the wing from the preferred place in the living room and leave it in the background, add a kitchen chair to the dining table that gives movement and an eclectic touch, or go further and move the sofa to the center of the room, always that the square meters allow it.
2. ‘Flower power’
Both natural in vases strategically placed on the dining table, in the bedroom or in the hall, to give the best welcome, as in the fabrics that dress the windows, the walls or the bed.

3. A touch of greenery
As the idea is to transfer the freshness and vitality of the exterior into the home, nothing better than resorting to plants to make it.

4. ‘Indoor y outdoor’
In spring and summer the house lives out of doors, even when it is an urban apartment. So, the boundaries between outside and inside should be blurred with furniture suitable for both spaces, capable of turning the living room or dining room into a heavenly corner, or opening the doors and moving life outdoors into the house.
5. In favor of color
Although neutrals are a decoration trend and intense tones bring sophistication and glamor to any corner, good weather is synonymous with a cheerful, positive and rebellious color palette, in which you cannot miss blue (a sailor color that can live in the city), yellow or green. Pink deserves a separate mention because it moves just as well between seasons.
6. Vegetable fibers
Rattan, jute, wicker, coconut … natural fibers, a ‘must’ in current decoration, they find their favorite season in the summer. Sustainable and very warm, they create a home with their mere presence.

From main pieces to lamps, rugs or baskets, they fit well with all styles and have no adaptation problems. So when the cold arrives, the basket with flowers houses the firewood and pine cones for the fireplace.
7. Natural fabrics
Cottons and linens replace duvets and wool blankets and velvet, although this always has a corner in the house, bringing freshness to the interiors. The curtains in light colors They are the new allies to dress the windows, while the natural covers, smooth or with cheerful patterns, do the same with the bed.
8. Carpets are also for summer

It is time to wash and store the fluffy and warm wool and long hair designs and wear the vinyl patterned floors, as resistant as they are decorative, or made from vegetable fibers, such as jute or sisal, materials that perspire and help regulate environmental humidity.

Sometimes, you simply have to renew the cushions that dress the sofa to get closer. Since plain models that bet on color as the main attraction for good weather, even designs with typical motifs of this time, such as sailors, florals or exotic animals. To enhance its effect, nothing better than mixing sizes and shapes. Of course, as a general rule, the ideal number is always one more than the number of seats.
10. Craft passion
Craftsmanship is an added value and in spring and summer he brings out all his decorative artillery, bringing home that imperfect and different air, capable of making each space unique. The pottery in the form of vases, plates and ornaments It invites you to beach afternoons or to a rustic and cozy village house.
