Decorating for any season may seem like a tedious job, but here are some tips to make it easier for you and your family. Keep these in mind the next time you shop!
- When decorating for Spring or Summer, the key is light and color. Get rid of heavy curtains that are hot and keep out the light. Go for light airy ones that are colorful and vibrant, or pastels that are soft and comforting. Do away with dark, neutral pieces but keep the beiges and light yellows. Add a pop of color by adding an accent pillow in a nice warm coral shade.
- Invest in accent pieces for your tablescape for when you entertain. A gorgeous carafe or pitcher, or an elegant cheese plate can be a conversation starter at parties.
- If you’re one who loves having plants inside the house, go for pots that are chic and functional. Some pots and planters come in sleek designs that compliment your interiors.
