As the seasons change, so should your home décor! When it comes to fall and winter, we’re all for layering and creating that cozy atmosphere. But for summer, we’re ditching the layers to create a more open space and minimal look. Try these 5 décor swaps to make this summer.
1. Lighten Your Colour Palette
Softer colour palettes always feel fresh and light for summer. Try adding some throw pillow covers over your existing pillows to add some space and breathing room this season.

2. Opt for Linen
Linen is one of the most arguably summery bedding fabric. A mixture of elegant and luxurious, linen provides a beachy textile, but effortless chic.

3. Let the Light In!
We spend so much of winter waiting for the sunshine to make an appearance. What better time to switch out your heavier window coverings for something lightweight and airy.

4. Accessories are Key
When thinking of summer accessories to incorporate into your home, keep light textiles, organic materials, and natural wood finishes in mind. Woven area rugs are great alternatives if you’re looking to ditch the heavier rug for the warmer months, or just a simple way to liven up dark-coloured floors.

5. Create Space
Even in the smallest areas, creating an illusion of a more open, breathable space is key for the season. In your entryway, try changing up that painting for a large mirror. Mirrors are a great way to make an area look bigger, while adding natural light. Can’t hang one? No sweat – invest in a full-length mirror to lean against your wall.
