Bring Summer Into Your Home
It’s summertime and though you may want to spend most of your time outdoors now, you will at some point come back into your home. And when you do, make your house a summertime haven!

Draw on the inspiration of the elements (Air, Fire, Water, Earth) to guide your decorating choices and you’re bound to come up with some fun new ways to honor the summer season in your home. Choose the element that matches your Sun sign, or just pick the decorating tip(s)you like the most from the suggestions below.

Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Summertime breezes sure feel good when the temperature rises. Enhance fans and air conditioning with breezy fabrics and aromatherapy oils like lemon, grapefruit or rose geranium. White, beige and other light shades appeal to Air signs, so update your environment with a new paint job or slipcovers. Representations of birds, butterflies and other beautiful flying creatures are a great way to a bring nature indoors, or set up an outdoor living room, porch or patio where you can pass the days of summer admiring nature. Add the final touches with pots of bee- and butterfly-attracting native plants, a deck of cards (or other games) to keep your active mind busy, and plenty of friends to stop by and visit.

Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
The heat of summer is all the inspiration you need to make changes. Update your home decor with images of the Sun and other fiery symbols. Gold, red, orange and yellow are perfect accents to make you feel comfortable. You’ll be active and eager to take advantage of the warmer weather outside, so get your exercise/travel gear organized. As summer is a delightful season for entertaining, set up an outdoor space to accommodate your guests. Barbequing is one of your favorite ways to socialize, so make sure your grill is ready to fire up!

Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
If you can’t spend your summer at the beach, lake or other water environment, bring the water to you! Invest in a fountain or, at the very least, a kiddie pool. Decorate with seashells or other aquatic symbols and incorporate blue-green shades into your decorating. With all the hot air outside, you’ll need a refreshing refuge. Try setting up a cool spot inside your house where you’re surrounded by peaceful soothing images, textures and sounds.

Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Keep it down to Earth by sharing your love of nature inside your home. If you garden, you have the perfect materials at hand to keep your home beautiful and seasonal. Decorate with flowers and other natural elements from your garden, filling beautiful vases with snippets of what you’ve grown. Abundant feasts sharing your harvests will be even more appreciated when you serve them in beautiful surroundings, so amp up your dining area and invest in new dishware and other alluring accessories.
