Must have pieces to liven up your summer home
By Vedica Vora
As a balmy summer air heralds long, sunny days to come, it’s time to open our hearts (and homes) to a lighter, breezier setting. Think afternoons spent indoors enjoying a mint cooler, evenings enjoyed lounging by the patio and nights gazing into the starry summer sky as sheer drapes sashay about in the breeze- we’ve got you covered when it comes to livening up your idyllic summer home.
Our mood board for the season consists of some beautiful block printed upholstery, mul-soft curtains, light garden furniture and the perfect drinkware, incomplete of course, without the quintessential summer flora and fauna. The season for soft, joyful palettes calls for an update to just the pastels- we’re playing with neo-creme, lemon, sage and vibrant magentas as we mix prints and textures to create mindful, refreshing nooks that make a home sing of the summer. While the season may be challenging to deal with, the decor needn’t.
Ahead, covetable finds for the ultimate summer update!
