Just this week I went to Target to pick up some planters for my patio. Imagine my surprise when the home and garden section had been replaced with back to school items! Really? And the same day my much loved Williams Sonoma Home magazine arrived for “Early Fall 2017.” My calendar says we are more or less in the third week of summer! I am all for planning ahead, but let’s enjoy today and all this beautiful season has to offer!
Interior design in summer is all about keeping it simple. Some of the best ways to celebrate summer inside your home is to lighten up. Put the area rugs away. Or better yet have them cleaned and stored till October.
Next, window treatments. Same as rugs – time to take any heavy treatments down and just leave the blinds or shades. Better yet, add some soft linen panels and let all the summer breezes flow!
Lastly – Flowers
Fresh flowers are the best part of summer. Be sure to have some in at least one or two rooms. Of course it is a little extra work, but nothing will say welcome summer like fresh flowers!
So enjoy summer and let’s wait at least until mid August to embrace “Early Fall.”
