SPRING AND SUMMER HOME DECOR SHOPPING IDEAS
Spring is a wonderful time for renewal. And that goes for home improvement considerations, too. Light fabrics, bright colors and textured designs can bring joy into your home that will last for months ahead. Here are a few ways to help navigate spring and summer home decor shopping online.
1. CHOOSE ONE ROOM
Sometimes choosing summer home decor can be a daunting task. Whether you are redecorating or just moving into a new home, focus on one room or area and create from there. Perhaps it is a room where you will spend most of your time, or an area that has maintained the same look for a while that is screaming for an upgrade.
Fill your cart with items that speak to the mood you want to achieve in that space. Black and white patterned throw blankets stimulate the eyes, gold leaf print wall art creates a meditative effect, and Haitian birds on fabric throw pillows form a connection to the beauty found in nature.
Explore collection pieces that span different interior design styles, including Minimalist, Boho, Zen and Coastal. Explore black and white and pops of color; just take a look at the Lady Leopard Navy Blue Pillow from South African textile house, Shine Shine.
2. SHOP BY COUNTRY
When shopping for summer home decor, consider browsing the Shop by Country feature, accessible from the 54kibo homepage. Discover pieces that are inspired by African design heritage, made in many regions across Africa and throughout the Diaspora.
For example, explore a range of designs from South Africa: sustainable lighting options inspired by the stunning and intricate Ndebele beaded necklace, bold throw pillows, and hand crocheted kids’ toys made from soft cotton.
3. ASK FOR A SECOND OPINION
It’s never a bad idea to ask for a second opinion before investing in a summer home decor piece or two, especially if the items in consideration are larger purchases like furniture or lighting.
