Summer is blowing through the windows bringing its warm air and the desire for freshness and new. As we change wardrobe putting aside the heavy, dark and warm winter clothes so our home would enjoy a wardrobe summer change. Here are some tips I would love sharing with you:

Colors: this year trends go for Santorini blue that I love combining with optic white.

Mint and pastel palette are gorgeous as well, or bold combinations of colors. You can use them making dramatic and lasting changes for your home (walls or big furniture pieces) or in a minimal way for cushions, drapings and small decorations. moodboard mintiI also love the neutral sandy hues as seen bellow in the Kelly Wearster Malibu residence:

Change heavy carpets into linen, cotton or silk light ones. Chose light or bold combinations or why not the latest hits: ethnics. Here below some beauties from The Rug Company:

Exaggerate with flowers. It’s their best season.

Bring inside big rocks or big natural gifts from the sea. Also art pieces depicting them are beautiful.

Put aside dark heavy drapery and go for light curtains and sheers.

Good decoration everyone!
