  The days are lengthening; the nights are warmer — it’s time to start thinking summer。 From white curtains billowing in the breeze, sleeping porches, shell collections and wildflowers to fresh juice in the morning and nautical stripes, certain things just beg to be a part of your summer routine。 Here are 15 fun, crafty and creative ways to get your home in the spirit of summer。

  随着白昼延长,夜晚变暖——该想想夏天了。微风中飘荡着白窗帘,睡在走廊,贝壳制品、野花、早晨的新鲜果汁还有航海条纹,都应该成为你夏天日常的一部分。这里有15种有趣、巧妙、有创意的方法,帮你把夏天的精神带到家中。

  1。 Hang outdoor curtains。 What says summer more clearly than white curtains billowing in a breeze? And as if the tropical-vacation vibe weren’t enough reason to add them to your porch ASAP, they also provide shade and privacy。

  1。挂室外窗帘。有什么比飘荡在微风中的白窗帘更有夏天味儿?如果它能营造的热带假期氛围不能作为你立即挂起来的原因,那它能为你带来的阴凉和隐私也该足够。

  2。 Collect shells in a big glass vase。 Start the season by filling a big glass cylindrical vase partway with sand, and gradually add shells as you find them on your beach adventures throughout the summer。

  2。在大玻璃花瓶中收集贝壳。应该这样开始你的夏天:找一个大玻璃圆柱花瓶,先放点沙子,再把你夏天从海边捡回来的贝壳一点点放上来。

  3。 Deck out your deck for siestas and fiestas。 Colorful cushions, a pottery collection and a guitar set the stage for any relaxed afternoon activity you like, from solo napping to having a mellow party with friends。

  3。为午睡和节日装扮你的甲板。五彩缤纷的靠垫,再来点陶器,和一把吉他,这里就可以成为你午后轻松节目的舞台了,你可以独自午睡,也可以叫上朋友来个有格调的聚会。

  4。 Set up a summery bar。 A pretty tray with a few glasses and a pile of limes is all you need to be ready for summer drinks — and the glasses don’t even need to be made of glass if your bar is outdoors。

  4。建一个夏日吧台。想提供夏日饮料,你只需要一点石灰,还有一个放着玻璃杯的漂亮托盘——如果你的吧台在室外,你的杯子甚至不需要是玻璃的。

  5。 Hang a swinging chair.Whether outdoors or in, a swinging chair instantly makes any space feel more relaxed。 Try one on the porch or in the living room。

  5。挂一把秋千椅。室外或室内,秋千椅都会让这个空间舒适起来。在门廊或你的客厅试着挂一个吧。

  6。 Restyle your kitchen shelves。 Give yourself the gift of simplicity this summer by offloading the clutter from your kitchen cabinets into a few boxes and putting them away in a distant closet。 The extra breathing space will make it feel like you’re cooking in a vacation home。

  6。改变你厨房架子的风格。把橱柜里的那些杂物都拿下来装进箱子藏到柜子里去吧,把简洁的夏天作为礼物送给自己。做饭时这些多出来的空间会让你觉得自己正在哪里度假呢。

  7。 Decorate with driftwood。 Found a cool chunk of driftwood on the beach? Clean it up and put it to work on your coffee table, console or bookcase。

  7。用浮木做装饰。在海滩上找一块好看的厚浮木,清洗一下后做咖啡桌、工作台或者书架。

  8。 Make setting the table easy as pie。 Instead of keeping your silverware in the drawer as usual, try storing it in a caddy right on the dining table for the summer months — plus it’ll be easy to grab when you decide to have dinner al fresco。

  8。让布桌变得易如反掌。餐具就不要放在抽屉里了,这个夏天就把它们装在茶叶罐里放在餐桌上——再说如果你要露天晚餐的话,这样也容易多了不是么。

  9。 Put some wildflowers in a jelly jar。 When outdoor blooms are so plentiful, why buy them in a store? Snip whatever happens to be growing in your own backyard and plunk the stems in a jelly jar to add a romantic touch to any room。

  9。在糖罐里放点野花。当室外的花如此繁多时,又何必在花店买花?从你的后院随便剪点什么,把花茎放在糖罐理,给你的房间制造一点罗曼蒂克。

  10。 Freshen up the beds with crisp nautical stripes。 Blue and white striped bedding on all of the beds feels very beach house chic。 Shop around and scoop some up on sale。

  10。用航海条纹让卧室焕然一新。所有卧室的床品都换成蓝白条纹,会让房子充满海滩味儿。逛起来买点促销的条纹床品。

  11。 Keep rolled-up beach towels by the door。 The bright colors look cheerful, and having the towels close at hand means you won’t have to scramble when it’s time to head out the door。 Try storing them in a vintage enamel bucket, big beach tote or French market basket。

  11。在门边放几个卷起来的沙滩毛巾。明亮的颜色带来欢快,而且门边放着毛巾,在你急着出门时就不用爬过去够毛巾了。把它们放在复古的搪瓷桶,大的海滩包,或者法国市场篮子。

  12。 Squeeze fresh juice in the morning。 Keep a big pile of fresh oranges, a glass pitcher and a juicer together on the counter and make a ritual of squeezing fresh juice each summer morning。 It’ll make the day feel special right from the beginning。

  12。早晨挤点新鲜果汁。在柜台上放一个大的新鲜橙子,一个玻璃水罐,一个榨汁机,让挤新鲜果汁成为每一个夏日清晨的日常。这会使你一天都感觉棒极了。

  13。 Set up an outdoor changing area。 If you have a pool in the backyard or make frequent trips to the beach, it can come in quite handy to have a changing booth outside for getting into and out of bathing suits。 Style up your own changing area with old buoys, colorful lanterns and a fun, seaside-themed shower curtain。

  13。搞一个户外换衣区。如果你后院有一个游泳池,或者你常去沙滩的话,对穿着泳衣的你,有一个室外换衣区在出去或进来时都会更方便。用旧的浮标,色彩斑斓的灯笼,海滩主题的有趣浴帘,来装点属于你的户外换衣区。

  14。 Furnish a sleeping porch。 Add a daybed or two to your screened-in porch to transform it into an extra sleeping spot on warm summer nights — or a napping place on lazy summer afternoons, with a tall sweet tea in arm’s reach。 You can’t beat an iron-frame bed and a striped mattress cover for classic summer appeal。

  14。布置一个睡觉的门廊。为你带着纱窗的走廊加一个或两个沙发床,让这里成为你炎热的夏日夜晚另一个可以睡觉的地方,它也是慵懒的下午你打盹的地方,你可以在手边放一大壶香甜的茶。铁框床和条纹床垫,这样的夏天味儿你可无法抵挡。

  15。 Hang a flag。 Hanging a flag can add vibrant color and style to your entry all summer long, not just on the Fourth of July。

  15。挂一面旗。不要只在7月4号挂旗了,让你的门口整个夏天都充满色彩和格调。
