Summer Living: Quick Ways To Update Your Home

Warm temperatures and the casual atmosphere of summer call for a few decor updates. Check out these four quick ways to bring the mellow bliss of summertime into your home.

Easy Summer Decor - Ethnic Patterns Outdoor Swing

Whether or not you’re jetting off to an exotic hotspot this summer, you can feel as though you’ve been whisked away with ethnic patterned pillows. Go for prints that are decidedly Moroccan and rich in color like in the hanging swing on this Palm Beach patio. John Robshaw’s collection for Duralee features tons of unique prints with ethnic flair. We particularly like the half moon design on 21042 – Pomegranate.

If you’re looking for a fast way to transform a room for summer, try changing out dark curtains for white drapery with a fun, slightly whimsical print. It will instantly lighten up any space, giving it a breezy, relaxed vibe. Neutral prints in brown or taupe with a white background, like 20874-Earth from Thomas Paul’s collection for Duralee, will fit in perfectly with nearly any color scheme.
