Moreover, with ‘adaptive reuse’ becoming a focal point in contemporary architecture, the use of reclaimed timber is expected to only go up in the coming months and years.
In addition to its green credentials, reclaimed wood also provides a wonderful cost-cutting option that reduces wastage both in terms of material and expenses.
3. Inspired by the Beach
When it comes to decorating the home with summer cheerfulness, nothing matches the tried and tested beach style.
Furthermore, with some minor tweaks, beach style works well all year long, just combine your favorite colors with touches of blue, turquoise, and coral to create a chic, soothing and bright setting.

4. Pastels and Watercolors
As pastels dominate the spring/summer collections, borrow from the world of glitz and glamour and incorporate some dreamy pastels in your interior.
When used right, pastels work well in almost all settings.
However, if candy pink seems too sweet, opt for shades like minty green that work well in rooms with themes ranging from modern to retro and midcentury.
Actually, watercolors unleash the breezy charm of summer. In the above-shown picture, a watercolor-inspired accent wall adds character to this lovely bedroom.
The watercolor decorating trend is gaining popularity across the globe and it is definitely the right time to use it in your living space.
