Summer is almost here although we have been spoiled with this beautiful weather. I love styling for summer. Airy, sun-filled rooms make me smile. Here are a few tips to bring summer into your home.

Love your plants. There is nothing like having plants or fresh cut flowers in your home. If you have open shelving display them! We always try to add botanicals and greenery when staging properties as well. 

Remove your heavy textiles like heavy comforters and opt for cottons or fabric made of linen. Changing toss pillows and throw blankets can instantly change the look of a room. 

Remove your heavy area rug. This is a great time to have your area rug cleaned and perhaps opt for a more natural rug or no rug at all.

Prep your outdoor space. Yes, outdoor living is important. It can be an extension of our indoor living so make it count. Comfortable chairs, side tables and outdoor rugs can make your backyard feel like your own oasis.

Change your bed linens. Cotton, linen and whites are crisp looking for summer. 

Add some greenery or have beautiful flowers displayed. 

Opt for lighter area rugs, toss pillows and throw blankets
