Summertime is finally here! With brighter days and warmer temps, it’s likely that you want to embrace the season within your home. One of the best ways to do it? Small switch-ups with your textiles. It’s easy, inexpensive, and stylish! So, let’s focus on how you can bring in light textile alternatives that reflect summer and make a statement.
Cool, Custom Drapes
We would say cool, custom upholstery, but changing that out for just a season can be a bit much. Instead, opt for custom drapes. There’s really nothing like it — seriously! Over the years, natural sunlight can take a toll on your drapes, so why not have a custom pair that you can utilize just for those hot months?
Let us help you find just the right fabric for some drapes that will be a game-changer this season!
Lightweight Blankets and Pillows
‘Tis the season to ditch the cashmere and wool throws for something lighter. Maybe even with tassels for a fun, fresh look! When it comes to pillows, we have inserts and a wide array of fabrics in beautiful colors and patterns that will make the most perfect covers!
Crawling into a comfy bed can feel amazing unless you feel uncomfortable due to heat. Even with air conditioning, the wrong bedding can feel heavy and warm. For summer, consider switching your duvet cover, sheets, and pillowcases to something a bit airier, like linen. Linen is a wonderful choice due to its breathability, texture, and softness. Another wonderful option is bamboo, which is cooling, soft, and moisture-wicking.
Fresh Floor Coverings
Of course, we mean area rugs! Area rugs are a wonderful addition to any home. But sometimes, depending on the material, they can appear heavy. This doesn’t mean you have to do something with them, but you can. For smaller spaces like entryways or home offices that might have a heavy-weighted runner or rug, consider rolling them up until the season is over.
For your main living space, it’s not a bad idea to have two rugs that you use regularly — one for the spring and summer months and then one for fall and winter. Not always, but often, a lighter-weight rug can really set the mood for summer.
Blues and greens are very popular this year, and honestly, they are two colors you can never really go wrong with. Check out our lovely Atmos area rug in green. It’s the type of rug that would look good not just in summer, but all year round!
Eye-Catching Accent Cloths
When it comes to changing things up for the seasons, sometimes all it takes is a simple swap of accent textiles. For summer, this could mean decorative hand towels and dishcloths for your kitchen and bathroom. Or, some bright cloth napkins. A festive table runner or placemats is another option. Not only are these simple swaps cost-effective, but they can also easily get changed out or replaced as needed.
