There are decorative resources that help adapt the house to warmer temperatures. They are easy to implement, reasonably priced, and give excellent results. Stand up to the heat and lower the temperature of your house a few degrees.
A CELESTIAL BEDROOM
This pastel color is a surefire resource for visually lowering the bedroom temperature. Its combination with natural finishes – light woods, ivory, or vanilla lacquer – produces a cozy effect that is not hot. Blue Chambray duvet cover, for a 1.35 to 1.50 m bed. From Lexington.
THE DINING ROOM IS SUMMER DRESSED
A warm environment can be transformed into a cool space, even if it is dominated by a fireplace. Simply remove the thick curtains – in this case, the windows have been left bare – and replace the tablecloth with table runners. The sensation of perspective and the vision of the legs lighten the final effect and the dining room gains a point of freshness. From the firm Sia: chairs, with mesh backrest, and upholstered; chandelier and table runners.
A SAILOR-STYLE DINING ROOM
It evokes the coastal landscape with details and accessories. A simple shelf made of turquoise pickled wood, the shells recovered during your walks on the beach, a collection of straw hats hanging on the wall … Any item that recalls the charm of beach houses brings a breath of freshness to the environment. A basic that never fails? Plants, both indoors, as well as on terraces, balconies, and window sills.
GO COOL COUPLE!
The fabrics in blue and green colors, well dosed, exert a cooler effect than space completely decorated in white. Plaid made with the Maje model fabric, in 100% cotton. It belongs to the Lilac collection, from the Maison Decor firm. In 1.60 m wide.
COVERS FOR THE CHAIRS
They are the solution to give a summer look to seats with upholstery or materials associated with winter. To make them, cut a piece of fabric that fits the measurements of the seat so that it hides the front and back. Calculate a couple of centimeters more on each side, to make the seams. Attach some ribbons on the sides to tie it so that it does not fall off. Alcalá Cotton, by Pepe Peñalver.
A GARDEN INSIDE THE HOUSE
Adhesive vinyl fills the walls with flowers and butterflies. Patchwall, by Plage, is a new concept of combinable stickers that allow you to recreate nature with an independent adhesive or to design your own composition. The possibilities range from a panel of 2.60 x 0.60 m to pictures of 29.5 x 29.5 cm or stamped sheets of different sizes.
The white furniture transmits a feeling of freshness; but the direct incidence of the sun on this range causes such reflection of the light that this can become blinding in open spaces. To avoid this, create shady areas with hurdles, awnings … Cocoon Sofa 68 XXL, by Esprit Home; in 2.70 x 1.78 / 1.05 x 0.82 m.
ADJUSTABLE BLADES CURTAIN
Inheritance of the Arab culture, the semi-darkness is essential to counteract the hours of maximum heat. The Gradulux firm allows you to graduate the intensity of light with Facette curtains. They are made up of two textile layers with mobile opaque and translucent sections that can be completely closed to darken the environment or adjust them so that the light penetrates without anyone seeing us from the outside. They are available in slats of different widths and colors. In 1 x 1 m.
Its ability to absorb light results in the creation of cool atmospheres. But this same peculiarity makes it recommended only for very bright rooms, in which there is no risk of causing a dark effect.
IN THE WINDOWS, WEIGHTS AGAINST THE BREEZE
The sight of a tablecloth shaken by a light wind causes a sensation of freshness. And the same happens with a curtain that flutters in the window when current is created inside the house. So that the fabrics maintain a smooth cadence of movement and do not fly in a chaotic way, place a small counterweight at the base. For example, tweezers decorated with a painted stone, with seashells, or with magnets in fun shapes.
The suffocation of hot summer nights can be fought with cotton sheets. Unlike mixed compositions, which include a percentage of synthetic materials, cotton facilitates the perspiration of the skin and prevents the accumulation of heat. Gingko model sheets, by Marimekko.
Despite popular belief, wool is an excellent heat insulator. The LLuna model, by Francisco Cumellas, is made by hand. Its availability, in a wide range of colors, allows you to customize each model by combining tones, designs, and even shapes.
