A nature lover's paradise, The Coffs Coast is extra special during the Spring and summer times. Now is the ideal time to refresh the interior of your home. Whether you're updating a single room or the entire house, Integrity New Homes Coffs Coast, NSW  has the advice you need to create a stylish appearance. There are numerous options, but here are six of our favourites, quick-fix suggestions...

1. Add a Plant to Bring the Outdoors Inside
This summer, adding a plant to your living space can make all the difference. Plants are a wonderful addition to any interior design because they bring nature indoors. Plants are attractive and can be used as decorative accents, but they also provide health benefits.

The presence of houseplants has been associated with improved air quality, increased productivity, and decreased stress. It is simple to add colour, texture, and beauty to a space by incorporating natural elements such as plants, flowers, and branches.

There is something for everyone, from small succulents to large potted trees, in the plant kingdom. Think about your living space prior to making a final decision. Consider how much care each plant requires prior to purchase. Some require more attention than others. Place them strategically throughout the room so that they serve as both a decorative element and an oxygen source.

If you do not have access to outdoor plant life or do not have a "green thumb," artificial foliage brings life to any space without requiring maintenance. Some artificial plants on the market today appear very realistic.

2. Use fresh colours or a neutral colour scheme.
Any space can be quickly energised by the application of vibrant hues. A splash of personality is added to drab surroundings by employing vibrant hues.
What hues make you happy?

The neutral hues of linen and white can also produce a bright and clean appearance. Whites and linens never go out of style, always look good, and make spaces look lovely at all times.

If you love colour but are unsure which to choose, select one or two accent pieces as a starting point. These small additions, including pillows, rugs, artwork, and window treatments, can alter a room's ambience. Try introducing complementary paint tones and changing the colour of a wall if you're feeling particularly daring. Try muted pastels if you're looking for something more subdued.

3. Use stripes to add visual interest
Stripes add dimension and texture to a room without overwhelming it with too many colours or patterns. Striped throw pillows, rugs, curtains, and wall coverings instantly enliven a space. Combining two distinct stripes, such as bold vertical and delicate horizontal, will create visual depth and make the space more engaging.

4. Invest in textured accessories and materials
Summer is a great time to update your home's décor, especially with all the Christmas sales that occur at the end of November and beginning of December; whether you're looking for a complete renovation or just want to spruce up the area. Textiles are an effortless way to update the appearance of a space. Choose summery cushions or brightly patterned throw pillows and blankets for the living room, or add brightly-hued bath towels. Accessories such as candles, earthenware vessels, or platters displaying your shell collection or latest hobby can also be used to add character and depth to various rooms in your home.

5. Clean the Window Panes
Windows are one of the simplest and most effective ways to make a home appear more attractive and spacious. We would say that clean windows are an absolute necessity.
Remove any window coverings or hardware that could impede a thorough cleaning. Clean them thoroughly, and don't forget the screens. When the screens are clean, it is more likely that you will experience improved airflow and breathe clean air. Occasionally, this requires removing them and giving them a good scrub with a hose and broom on the concrete, or if they aren't too dirty, a simple wipe down with a wet cloth should do the trick. If curtains or blinds require cleaning, consult the cleaning instructions. Even if the process is annoying, you will enjoy the final product.

6. Refresh your outdoor space and garden
Why not refresh your outdoor space and yard in preparation for summer activities and entertainment? Cleaning the floor and walls with water under pressure will brighten the area and make it feel clean and inviting. If you're handy, a quick coat of paint on one of the walls or posts could make a significant difference.
Bright pillows and fairy lights can enliven a drab area of your patio or yard. Add ambience to outdoor dining or seating by placing fairy lights in one of your glass vases. Invest in a timer that automatically turns on and off, so you don't have to remember. It will look great and make every evening feel festive.

Don't be afraid to mix styles and colours when accessorizing for the summer. The key is to create an environment that reflects your personality and makes you feel at ease and fulfilled. Whether you make minor adjustments or undertake extensive renovations, these tips will help your home look its best this summer.
