Some Thoughts On Summer Decor

As summer makes its way towards me, I have the desire to redecorate and de-clutter. In winter, I tend to display more things around my home and in summer I feel the urge to clear them out. Does that sound crazy to you:) I like to update my home for the season. Each space in my home has some permanent elements and some that are temporary.  For this reason I am very partial to a neutral palette for my furniture and my walls.  I only need to change the pillows, add some fresh seasonal flowers and a few accessories to give the room a new look!

For Winter and Fall I like everything warm and cozy with a lot of layers. For Spring and Summer I like  to remove the extra rugs on the floor, reduce the accessories and try and make the space look more breezy and open! I strive towards making "my dream canvas" clean, refreshing, light and tranquil. I am trying to attack the clutter in my home. It is taxing work but rewarding. While I am trying to clean the home on the surface, I am also attacking my closets, shelves and drawers :)  I shall be relieved when I make some progress. I shall keep you updated as I work towards giving the rooms in my home a new look. I will try and share the before and after pictures once I am done!

Changing your decor for the season gives you an opportunity to bring out some long-lost pieces and make them the center of attention for a while. I like the thought of that :)  I have brought out my aqua candle stands this weekend to welcome the new season.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic. Please feel free to leave a comment or inbox me your suggestions.  We can all learn so much from each other......... so lets get this discussion going!
