Believe it or not, it is still officially spring. We are pretty sure that it has been summer for at least a month already! Here are a few ideas to help you get into the summertime frame of mind:

~reorient your furniture away from the fireplace to face a large window or patio door
~replace heavy drapes with sheer fabrics to let the sun shine in
~put away afghans and blankets on couches
~use fun summer accents like brightly colored vases, vintage glass bottles filled with sand or shells, funky antique frames, and wicker baskets
~floral prints and nautical themes have a great summertime feel
~fill bowls on your kitchen countertop with fresh produce
~float flowers in shallow dishes on the dining room table
~replace your bedspreads and comforters with lighter, less heavy fabrics
