Easy Summer Refresh

Hello all! I hope you are enjoying this fantastic summer weather as much as I am! While we are anxious to spend as much time as possible outdoors we still want the inside of our homes to reflect a summer vibe that is also low maintenance. We are firmly in mid summer but a little update and refresh is in order. Try one or more of the following to instantly update to your spaces.

1. Centerpiece for the table, island or coffee table:

  • add natural elements such as a stones or seashells to a tray, large plate (flat or pedestal) or bowl

  • incorporate white candles

  • include botanicals such as faux flowers or succulents to bring life to the display

  • add clear glass candle holders or jars (Mason jars are such an easy addition and add an easy, casual vibe to the space)

2. Lighter fabrics in cool colours

  • table runner in a natural fibre such as burlap or jute for a cool, casual look

  • striped or floral napkins in blues, greens, mint green and pale pink

  • white cotton throw casually draped across your bed, ottoman, sofa or chair

  • sheer white drapes to soften the light streaming through the windows

  • crisp white sheets on the beds

  • white towels in the bathrooms

3. Fresh flowers and greenery

  • the quickest, easiest and most economical way to update any room in your home

  • greenery is ideal for adding a splash of colour, energy and life to your rooms

4. Minimal decor

  • pack away some of the decor accessories. Spare surfaces and spaces appear cooler, calmer and more relaxed – perfect for lazy summer days!

5. Natural elements

  • a bowl of seashells on a vanity, occasional table or even your dresser add a coastal spirit

  • rocks added to a centerpiece or displayed on a tray or window sill are reminiscent of easy cottage life
