Summer Decorating 101

Summer decorating is fun, easy and always puts me in a great mood! The key is using light fabrics, bright colours, durable patterns and whimsy design.

Here is 4 ideas for amazing summer decorating.

1) Switch out to a summer duvet cover. Much cheaper than replacing your whole set, a colourful duvet set will change the entire feel of the room.

2) Comfortable cushions. Cushions are inviting, add colour, can be switched out easily and accent many pieces around the room that you already own.

3) Change out the lighting. Swapping out a lamp is super easy. This does not mean you need to get rid of the lamp - simply place it in a different room and update the decor in both rooms with simplicity and ease. Don't forgot outdoor lighting on those cozy nights too. Using elegant battery operated lights on outdoor tables can add sophistication and class within seconds. 

4) Puffs/pouffs/ottomans/seating or those "other things" on the floor really do change up a room. Have fun with colour and texture. Move them room to room throughout the seasons and this gives extra seating plus that extra splash of colour to make your summer really shine! As a side note, they make perfect seating for rainy day tents too!

No matter your budget or style, have fun, be creative and be inspired!
