What is latest in home décor this summer - from drapes to wall covers - our take on the quintessential décor!!

The arrival of summer always necessitates change of décor, mood and looks. Once summer arrives it is not just the woolens that go in the box but also the wool and silk cushions, beddings and other such stuff. This also happens to be the time when we look for lighter shades and even lighter fabrics. It is very difficult to face clutter and disorder as our body and soul yearns for pristine open spaces and free flow of air and energy. You really don’t have to go the whole hog to bring in the summer. A few little changes can make all the difference and make your home feel light and fresh for the season.

The little changes

•    For a start you can begin by doing a spring cleaning routine and dust, sweep, scrub and vacuum those places that get overlooked during the routine clean up. 
•    Next rotate, rearrange and replace the rugs with lighter textile like sisal, cotton or sea grass.
•    Remove the area rugs and store them for winter
•    Replace your silk and synthetic mix digital print bed sheets with pure cotton and light colored bed linen. Include more of blues, whites and pastels in your bed spreads, cushions and pillow covers.
•    Change the floral fragrances and flower arrangement in the house and choose fresh and fruity fragrances.
•    Plant some seasonal flowers in the window pots or get some miniature plant holders in your kitchen.
