I like to change up the accessories in our living room with the seasons. The “bones” of our living room are tan and chocolate brown, so it is easy to change up the “dressing” of the room. In summer I go with a light blue and green palate, featuring souvenirs from beach holidays, and things that sing summer to me.
I like the “everything old is new again” vibe this gives our home. My younger daughter is fully on board for this change, and usually starts asking in March, when she feels the first warm breeze, if it is time to “spring-ify” yet. lol
These changes add “freshness” and interest to a room without making drastic changes, and allow us to observe little rituals to greet the arrival of the changing season. Happy Midsummer’s Day!
