Begin With Spring Cleaning

As we adjust into summer, knowing how to refresh your home can be difficult. The daunting task of identifying the areas that need sprucing up or determining which details require modification can be challenging.

The best way to get your inspiration flowing is by doing some spring cleaning. Declutter your space from all unnecessary pieces and the heavy, cozy layers that were utilized during the winter and spring. Store away all of your seasonal decor, especially any pieces that may have been used for holidays or special occasions. Begin at the front door and work your way slowly into the main living areas, assuring that each room is accounted for.

Once your home feels minimal and simplified, you will feel less overwhelmed when it comes to beginning your summer decor search and will find that it is more approachable in discovering those ideal necessities.

Soften Your Decor 

Summer is all about embracing the gentle, serene elements that come with the season; lighter fabrics and decor, warmer and neutral tones, delicate textures, and organic shapes. Creating a space that is radiant and calming starts with refreshing your current pieces and welcoming these softer elements.

It is essential to swap out all of your heavier, darker throws and throw pillows, furniture and accessories for pieces that exude the charm and airiness that is innately characteristic of summer. This will assure your space will be uplifting and tranquil, as it will be an oasis that allows you to relax and enjoy the aura of the warmer weather and sunnier atmosphere.

In order to fully embrace the essence of summertime charm, it is beneficial to implement soft touches into focal aspects. Rid of the objects you no loner need, or tuck them away for the next year, such as your heavy draperies and dark accent pieces. Incorporate softer colors, lighter textiles, and organic silhouettes to create not only a home that is open and fresh, but one that is representative of the beauty of the Summer season. Shifting from darker wood to lighter wood, heavy wool to soft linen or cotton, and sharp edged pieces to rounded or curved edges are examples of how to achieve this.

Pieces like our accent tables and chairs with a soft color palette, or elegant vases are exceptional items to add to your decor for that summertime feel. Their versatility allows them to be located in your reading nook, living room, or dining room - the possibilities are endless.

When outside, we are inspired by the allure of varying silhouettes, colors and charm often seen in our outdoor spaces. Flowering plants, earthy branches and unique shapes often remind us of the impact nature bestows upon us, connecting us to the world and our environment.

Just as this is visualized outdoors, the presence of these elements shall not solely be confined to existing outside, and when brought into your home, creates an aura that permeates through the entirety of your home.

Depending on the area of your house you are revitalizing, natural elements can be a key focus when it comes to summer decor. Bringing fresh or faux summer fruit atop your island, or fresh flowers and dried branches within a timeless vase, will add those seasonal accents to create a vibrant focal point. Place your vessel atop your coffee table or entryway table as a central focal point, and adorn it with summer flowers, such as peonies, roses, hydrangeas or ranunculus - the more, the merrier!
