Hi!

Welcome to my blog! I love writing about anything related to home decor and sharing inspirational designs. Hope you have a nice stay!

Let summer inspire.....

The colors of summer are cool and relaxing. Let these colors influence your home decorating. Think of sea glass, the ocean, grass, sand, driftwood, and the summer sky. Nature's best blues, greens, ivories, whites, and browns.

 Walking on local beach and happened upon this beautiful curved driftwood.

Summer can be a time to limit your home decor.  To simplify, to reflect the elements and ideas of summer: relaxing, warm weather, easy going mentality, vacation. 

Take down heavy drapes and replace with sheer gauzy fabrics. Roll up your heavy wool rugs and walk on cool bare floors.  A simple bouquet of flowers from your garden on a bare wood table. A glass bowl with bits of sea glass. A few sea shells scattered about. A couple of over sized linen covered throw pillows to sink into on your sofa. Give your furniture and home a chance to breathe and have a vacation of its own.

Summer is a perfect time to reconnect with nature. How about making an outdoor living room.

Even entertaining in summer becomes a relaxing simpler event. A table outside only needs a cloth and candles in a mason jar. Grilled foods, a salad, and fruits of the season complete the evening. And if you are lucky enough to have a fire pit to gather around....then by all means you must have s'mores.

 Have a wonderful summer!
