How to Refresh Your Space for Summer
3 Key Components of a Well-Designed Home
Out with the stale air and in with the fresh scent of rain and earth. Even if your home has the best air circulation system, nothing beats throwing open your windows and allowing nature to breathe life into your home once again.
While you're enjoying that fresh air, here are three other things you can do to invigorate your home for the new season easily.
Whether you tackle it as a DIY project or commission a custom wreath from your favorite florist, your home will reap all the benefits of greenery. I recommend eucalyptus wreaths/plants /essential oils for their air-purifying ability and wonderful scent. Still, you also can't go wrong with fresh bouquets - especially if you are prepping for guests.
While you don't need to redecorate your entire space for spring, swapping out your area rug, throw pillows, and blankets for those of a lighter, pastel palette will go a long way in welcoming the spring season.
Dressing up can often make us feel more confident and calm, which is why it should come as no surprise that dressing up your walls will have a similar effect. Whether you opt for removable murals, peel and stick wallpaper, or designer wallpaper, as pictured above, you'll find that your space never looked better.
Designer Tip: I suggest placing wallpaper on only one or two walls - or even just the ceiling. Have fun with it on bookshelves too.
*Don't be afraid to introduce patterns and prints, especially if your walls are a solid color.
Spring color trends
Over the years, I've seen summer color palettes in a bright mix of Pantone's Pink Peacock, Princess Blue, Aspen Gold, Mango Mojito, and Sweet Lilac - to name a few.
Not into rainbow colors? You still have options. The most popular neutrals are navy, dark brown, cream, and light gold. These make great colors for window treatments and walls.
