Along with the warm weather and green grass come cravings to immerse ourselves in all-things-summer, lest we never forget its beautiful, sun-drenched glory. One way to keep summer in our midst at all times is to bring touches of the outdoors in. Here are a few ideas to give summertime the center stage in your home:
Glimpses of the Garden – Fresh cut flowers are an easy way to add a touch of summer to the home, so bring some in! In addition to floral arrangements, try using other accents of the garden as decor. Experiment with using bright colored pots in unexpected ways, like to hold your ice bucket or filled with an array of candles.
Keep it Light – Heavy fabrics remind us of winter. If you have throw blankets over your sofa or pillows with wool or heavy fabrics, swap them out for lightweight versions. You may want to use summer weight towels in the bathroom and kitchen too — in a summery color please!
Color Galore – Add bright colored accents to your tabletops or living room setting. Bring in bright colored trays, pillows, table runners, vases, and other items that will add a little punch wherever you look. Summer is not a season for drab — pinks, aquas, oranges, yellows, and reds take center stage.
Scents of the Season – We associate winter with cinnamon and fragrant fir trees, likewise summer with the smell of fresh floral blossoms and tropical fruits! Splurge on a couple luxurious candles in yummy scents and breathe-in a season of summertime memories.
