Upcycling summer decorations – much more than just a trend
What started as a trend or an original decoration idea has long been considered a meaningful creative activity that stands for pure sustainability. Upcycling not only protects your wallet, but above all the environment. This means that old items are not simply thrown away, but are given a second chance. In fact, these even become a kind of art and turn into real eye-catchers in the garden, on the terrace or in your own four walls. Old car tires, wooden chairs, rubber boots, bicycles, wheelbarrows and Euro pallets are clear classics, especially for creative DIY garden decorations. But empty glass bottles, preserving jars, old cutlery, tin cans and kitchen strainers are also highly recommended as popular handicraft materials for upcycling.

Breathe summery into the interior
In addition to original handicraft and upcycling ideas, you can also invite the summer into your home with suitable colors, patterns and materials. In principle, the following applies: decide on one main color or at most three of them and introduce them into the home with textiles, home accessories, natural finds and even fresh flowers. Particularly warm, cheerful shades such as yellow, orange and red, especially in their pastel variants, are often preferred for a successful summer decoration. But also a cooling turquoise or calming celadon green can be selected to compensate and combined with white and cream as well as other neutral colors. On the other hand, sea finds, rough ropes, glasses full of sand, stripes in blue and red are typical elements of summer decorations in a maritime style and are often very popular with many people seasonally.
Provide fresh splashes of color with new pillowcases and bedspreads
The usual materials that scream for summer are soft silk and fine satin, but also thin cotton and coarse linen. These substances are not only completely natural, but also very pleasant on the skin. They also have a very cooling effect for body and mind and are therefore the ideal choice in the warm season, not only for at home, but also for outdoors and on the go.
For real fans of the maritime furnishing style
Create your very special summer decoration with a lot of imagination and attention to detail and let summer come to your home. Even in all other seasons, such an atmospheric decoration is not out of place. But on the contrary! It will put you in a good mood and provide more energy and balance.
