When in doubt, go with white hues. Whether you’re picking a new tablecloth, duvet, or gauzy curtains for summer, clean and crisp white is always a safe bet. Opt for natural materials such as cotton or linen, and feel free to intersperse the neutral pieces with some bold patterns, too.
Turn to texture. Materials like jute, raffia, and rattan are having a moment right now thanks to their earthy look and touchable textures. From placemats to throw pillows, these materials introduce a layered look to your tablescapes, bedroom, and even your couch.
Focus on natural elements. Harness the summer season through accessories that bring the outdoors in. A few vases full of fresh flowers can brighten your apartment (and your mood!), while a bowlful of summer fruits and veggies proves that produce can be as beautiful as it is delicious.
Spruce up unexpected places. Don’t just decorate the living room and dining room! Freshen up your bathroom with a floral shower curtain or a new houseplant to tie together your summertime space.
