Home Décor Summer 1

Summer has arrived! If your home décor hasn’t quite caught up to this bright and sunny season yet, don’t sweat it -- here are a few easy tips to achieve a summer-ready home in no time.

  • Pull up your rugs and let your floors breathe; bare floors are a welcome change and a very easy way to simplify your interior in the hot months of summer. Now is also the best time to have your rugs cleaned in preparation for the autumn and winter months ahead.
  • Switch out your bedding and go neutral. Whites, creams, soft pinks and blues are ideal colour palettes in the bedroom over the summer months, evoking a calm restful mood that’s welcome after a hot day outside. Splurge on high quality cottons and linens for maximum effect, and durability.
  • Declutter. If you skipped your spring clean this year, take a few hours to declutter a few shelves, surfaces and forgotten nooks, boxing up what you don’t need. Think about adding fresh cut flowers in the entryway, bedside tables – anywhere you can bring the outdoors in.
  • Outdoor cushions. The quickest and easiest way to elevate your outdoor décor is by throwing some brightly coloured and patterned cushions on your porch and balcony chairs and sofas. There are so many weatherproof cushions available now, in all price points. If you want to create an even more defined outdoor space, invest in a good quality outdoor rug – as well as being soft underfoot it’s a stylish outdoor statement that pulls together your entire look.
