Hot Summer Days

Posted on June 23, 2015 at 9:50 AM

The days are getting hotter and that means changing out our home decor. We want a feeling of breezy easy days right? Nothing heavy in fabric choices no more leather or velvets (yes some folks still have victorian velvet sofas). Now we have to get our head in the game, light colors, floral, beach prints perhaps. Get the slip covers out and bring in the lightness of summer. Not able to slip cover? Purchase some large fluffy pillows that have that oh so comfortable stuffing, pillows you want to squish and fluff when sitting in your favorite comfy chair or couch. Change out the ottoman for a large put you feet up style, one you can also put a tray on for a cool glass of iced tea or lemonade. Change out the fireplace mantel with pitchers filled with just picked flowers, put a basket in the fireplace opening, perhaps a mirror to give reflection of the room, add brightly painted picture frames or a large basket of flowers to cover the deep dark hole where the fire was roaring during the cold winter. 

It's that time again to bring in the sunshine and the beautiful breezes. Lighten up the curtains with sheers and add gauzy drapes to doorway openings for a cool feeling when the air blows through your doorways. 

Remember to have fun this summer with your decor, there are no rules mix up prints of stripes, florals and dots. Stay cool and remember Lavender & Lace has fun finds everyday to add to your decor :)
