Summer is here, and with it comes summer dresses, pool parties, s’mores by the fire and, for most home owners, a fresh start to their interiors. During the colder months, couches are covered in blankets and wood is stacked near the fireplace, but with the cold days behind us and sunshine over our heads, it’s time to switch your home to summer mode.
The first step in kicking winter out and welcoming summer is to stow all winter accessories and anything that adds a sense of heaviness to your room. Replace darker artwork for a piece or two that pops with color, or consider a light blanket and colorful throw pillows to replace a heavier blankets.
Now that your spring cleaning is done, open your windows, light a candle in a citrus or fresh linen scent or fill a decorative bowl in a summery shade with seasonal potpourri, and let the fresh air and summer energy into your home.
