Lighten up for Summer

Now that it’s June, it is really starting to feel like summer (and we’re ready for it!).  However, if your home looks like it’s still stuck in winter, it’s time to refresh your interior.  Here are some simple suggestions to lighten up for the summer:

Change your drapery.  If you have heavy, dark drapery, try switching it for drapery in a lighter color and fabric, or even adding some sheers.


All white can be very pretty, but it can also be nice to add in some rich neutrals.  This dining table and chairs from our Tahoe Collection would be the perfect addition to your home with the beautiful handcrafted design made out of solid Sheesham/Indian rosewood.

Accessories are a great, easy, and cost-effective way to make your home seem more summery.  Switch out dark pillows and throws for some that seem more appropriate for the season and voilà – your room will have a totally different feel!

Make your bedroom seem lighter by putting on white bedding and laying down a light rug (especially if you have dark floors).

Maybe it’s time to purchase new furniture entirely.  If so, white leather could be a great choice for a modern look and easy maintenance, and it has “summer” written all over it!
