Easy Seasonal Updates for Your Home

Simple Solutions for Stunning Winter to Summer Transition

 

The décor that makes your home cozy and warm in the winter can make it seem hot and stuffy in the summer. Spending thousands of dollars on new furniture and figuring out something to do with your current furniture is not your only option.

Paint

      the decorator’s favorite, fastest and easiest way to change the mood of a room. Transform your cozy den to an airy retreat by painting your brown walls apple green.

      If painting a whole room seems daunting, try this trick from the experts: paint the room a neutral cream or white and choose one wall – a “feature wall” that will bring spring, summer or any season indoors with color.

 

Slip covers

      if your couches and chairs are covered in a sturdy, comfy dark fabric, tossing a white or bright duck-cloth slip cover on top will instantly lighten and brighten your room. There are many brands of “instant” slip-covers available on shopping sites such as Amazon.com, Target.com and Overstock.com.

      Depending on the piece, sometimes a plain white sheet can be imaginatively tucked and draped to serve as a slip-cover for a few months before being retired to its place in the linen closet.
