Summerize Your Home!

Now that summer's almost here, feels like it's here but it's not official until the 21st of June. So. . . . . . How to lighten it up and make it feel fresh. It feels so good to be able to open the windows and doors and let the outdoors in so here are some tips to help summerize your home. Change out dark accessories like velvet or dark colored pillows, wool or dark throws. Then when fall comes and you bring them back out, they'll seem fresh and new again. There are so many reasonably priced throws and pillows at the discount stores and bed and bath shops, so changing pillows and a throw or two is pretty simple and affordable. Pillows that are made from vintage fabrics and linens work beautifully for a fresh summery look.
Putting a crisp, white linen table cloth on a dark wood side table for the summer can also lighten a room and give it a great new look even if it's just a large square card table-size table cloth on a round table, it will work.

Add fresh flowers on top of the table cloth and wow! It makes a huge difference. Clean the fireplace and replace logs with silk greenery. This will make a huge difference in how the room feels. Put fresh paint on drab walls. Outside, remove brown leaves or plants that are struggling with fresh planted flowers. Get fresh seat pads or covers or slipcovers for your outdoor patio furniture.
Cover an old iron chair with a light French toile and you'll have an instant facelift. And don't forget to clean your windows! Have sparkling windows for those summer days.
