Now we can put the cold months behind us and look forward to summer! Why not spruce up your home to give it that summer look?
After years of designing and providing décor advice for clients, see our little helpful hints to decorate your home to give it that relaxing feel…
Decorating with Stripes
Use painters' tape, fabric paint, and lengths of unadorned canvas drop cloth or cushion covers to create summery striped tablecloths or seat cushions.
Block- Print Poppies
Rethink your home decor and get inspired by the bright, sunny colors of summer.
Decorate pillows with our poppy templates for breezy, warm weather decor. Poppies' graphic outlines are a cinch to block-print onto fabric: Brush strokes of textile paint in saturated tones. Start with the stem and leaves to help map out the composition.
Brighten up a sunroom with these pillows printed with three different-sized anthurium leaves.
Raffia Leaf Throw Rug
This throw rug's leafy design, made with raffia in three cool-green shades, conjures a vision of palm fronds moving in the breeze.
Flower Votive Displays
Flowers and candlelight are nothing new, but together they create tabletop decorations fit for relaxed summer entertaining.
Bright Ideas for Any Room
Paint, fabric, and paper offer opportunities to sneak rich hues into otherwise neutral spaces without a huge commitment of time or money.
Custom -Made Chaise Cushions
Instead of settling for a print that's not quite right, make your own outdoor chaise cushions using inexpensive pillows and the fabric of your choice.
Outdoor Dining Setup
As the long summer days melt into balmy nights, ease the transition -- and extend the pleasure -- by dining outdoors under a private starry dome of twinkling candles.
Those inexpensive vinyl tablecloths are good for more than just picnics -- they make great material for pillows that are easy to clean.
Light an Outdoor Table
Outdoor lighting can be both functional and festive: Whether, you're highlighting a focal point in the garden, defining a pathway, or setting a table with votives, lights will help you navigate the darkness and create a little romance outside.
