Lightweight fabrics and plant fibers to avoid heat
The cotton and linen will be your greatest allies this summer. This type of plant fibers not only bring a touch of naturalness to the room, but also create a fresh and suitable environment for this time of year. The lightness of these fabrics will help you not die of heat in high temperatures.
These and other materials, such as wicker, perform well on accessories such as cushions or rugs, as well as magazine racks, curtains, sheets, sofa blankets (a ‘must’ for living with animals) and even chairs. Combine them in pastel shades that recall summer, so that the essence of the season is present in every corner of the room.
Light and natural wood
The wood, in light shades, makes the room seem brighter. If the materials are not treated, even better, so you can admire all the beauty of the material in its pure state.
This material is suitable for large furniture such as dining tables or cabinets. A light wood table, for example, can be left uncovered in the summer to cool the environment. While in winter, if you are looking for something more sober, you can cover it with a centerpiece that goes well with your decor.
Other recommended options include the washed wood console table and a combination of wood plank and iron legs. The former can be used in an interior or even on a terrace; the second will be useful whatever the decoration of your home.
Soft colors, prints and plants to refresh the space
It is not necessary to use white to get the effect of a cool room. But it is still a good resource because it lights up a room, conveys tranquility and can be combined with any other color; but if you don’t like it, don’t worry, there are other options.
Use soft, pastel colors. Blue and green are a guarantee, but also pink or beige. Combine this palette with floral or animal prints and insert indoor plants with bright green leaves to make them stand out and give a vivid effect to the room.
Furniture with glass and mirrors
The glass is a material that helps to give amplitude and light to the space. In addition, it also provides lightness and dynamism to the environment, two characteristics that go hand in hand with summer.
Small tables , mirrors , lamps or vases ; any decoration or accessory is useful for giving liveliness and versatility to any space in the house, as well as breaking up a sober atmosphere.

“Less is more”
The traditional phrase “less is more” is a rule that cannot be forgotten in the summer. It’s very hot right now; the more we fill the room with objects, the more difficult it will be for air to pass through and cool the premises .
