Summer Accents For A Florida Home
I haven't done anything drastic but last week I did make some small tweaks throughout the house to acknowledge summer.
Sometimes it is just moving existing pieces around to see what works but the beauty of designing with these bright tropical colors is that, just like in nature, they play so well together that the options seem limitless.
Individually, I liked all of the possible vignettes but when I stood back, there were too many florals in the room. Something had to be eliminated and switched out.
I already have a couple of vases and glass bowls sprinkled around the room so I didn't want to do that again. A sculpture of some sort would be great but until I find the right piece, these candlesticks are my stand in.
I did, though, find a new teapot and candle holder for the kitchen table.
Thank you, Home Goods.
A collection of coral vases gave this niche a fresh new look.
And nothing says summer like a basket of striped beach towels.
These new hand towels were an easy refresh in a guest bathroom.
I'm guessing it is my Midwest background, but the changing of the seasons will probably always be my call to tweak, shuffle, and embellish our home.
