It doesn’t hurt anything to trade accessories a couple times each year based on the season. Adding tiny bits of color to a room for spring and summer and making easy updates help make the transition and freshen up a space! We gladly welcome the change of seasons for an opportunity to breathe new life into our homes and make things a little different. Here are a handful of simple updates you can make this summer season…
Incorporate white fabrics // Keep it light with white; cream, and sand.
Decorate with flowers // When house plants get moved outside to soak up more of the hot summer sun, decorate inside with fresh flowers, which make a room more cheerful, bright and playful. Of course, more greenery never hurts.
Get the outside ready // Get your garden looking good, your patio set up with table and chairs etc. White fairy lights are another summery touch that add a little something extra, and don't forget the barbecue and fire pit.
Accessorize with citrus // Keep your fruit bowls filled with bright and in season fruits. Something like a bowl of oranges brings a lively and natural bit of colour.
Bring in the beach // Shells, coral, anything that reminds you of the beach and beachy vibes, you can’t get more summery than that.
Rotate your art // Have a few pieces that you can rotate out every season for a little bit of a change up, keep the bright prints for the summer.
Update pillows // Pillows are one of those easy accessories that can also be rotated out every couple seasons to accentuate on the sense of the time of the year. The same goes for curtains, throws, bedding, and any other easily exchangeable items.
Consider Scent // Believe it or not, the fragrance of your home really influences the aesthetic. A pleasant and clean smelling home is just more inviting! Each season you can try to add a new great smelling candle to your collection, or if you’re not into candles, try a diffuser or a scentsy.
Choose a pastel or primary palette for your accent colours // Keep your all-year round furniture in neutral colours and then have your soft furnishings or accent pieces in the crazy prints or wild colours. But try to not over complicate your colour palette in a room, keep it simple.
Clean & Organize // Last but not least, try to do a good deep clean every season. This helps to keep the house rid of clutter, organized, and tidy. It’s less overwhelming than a once a year sort of cleaning and it makes a home feel more comfortable.
