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
Enjoying hitting refresh on your summer style and remember that any of these ideas can be used in your outdoor rooms too!
