Flowers: Flowers are a great way to bring the outdoors in. Just buy some simple flowers like daisies or carnations for $4 at your local grocery store, and sprinkle the blooms all over your home in multiple little vases. My spring favorite is tulips, and my summer favorite is hydrangeas.
So box up those velvet pillows, dark tablecloths and heavy blankets! It’s the season to add some color, pattern and lighter fabrics, like linens and knits, to your home. These simple changes are guaranteed to make a big difference all summer long.
