The sun is shining, the weather is warm and it’s time for a summer makeover for your home. Our interior designer Marlene is back with a few ideas to help inspire you!

Our lifestyles alter with warm weather. We automatically change what we wear, what we eat and where we spend our time.

We gravitate to brighter colours, lighter fabrics, natural woven textures and perhaps floral patterns or bold stripes. What will your summer style be this season?

Think of what you are wearing this season. Can you apply the same principals when shopping for a new outfit to your interior spaces? Enjoy your home as much as you do your clothes this season.

Accentuate  your summer style in your home by adding anything white, new summer sheets, long sheer flowing drapery panels, sisal rugs, bright accent pillows and little white lights with succulent plants on your outdoor terrace.

I’m looking forward to eating my favourite summer foods while sitting in an outdoor oasis!

Spring into summer by doing whatever feels good and looks good to you this season!
