Add a Touch of Summer to Your Home
When the winter cold softens into spring time, it always feels good to lighten things inside your home. As the winter look is all about softness and warmth, spring and summer are focused on freshness and light.
If you have throws on your furniture, switch them out for lighter ones. If you have a home with darker, rich colors, accent them with a fresh green and/or yellow color. Add a blooming plant here and there. You could even swap out your big wool rug for something lighter in weight and color…or go without. Consider lighter and brighter pillows on your sofa.
I do many of these things in my own home (in fact, the pictures in this blog are from my home). In the winter I have sheepskin hides over my leather with big blankets, but in the summer it all goes away and a light throw is left out. I love to pick up a blooming plant (that may be meant for the outdoors) and have it on my kitchen island…it is very cheery!
Have fun adding a little summer to your home – keep it fresh and keep it light!
