Can we all just agree that summer goes by much too quickly here in Minnesota? Ok? Agreed.
Thankfully, design transcends time and allows us to keep summer alive in our homes all year long! Here are some of our favorite year-round summer-inspired design elements:
Grass cloth wallcoverings
Adding natural elements, like grass cloth wallcoverings, to your home evoke the feelings of nature and the great outdoors. Grass cloth wallcoverings not only look great, but they also help cover any slight imperfections in walls, absorb noise and create a dramatic backdrop to any room. Check out Thibaut’s grass cloth wallcovering options; go with a traditional natural color weave, printed grasscloth or a grasscloth in all the colors of your summer garden.
Keep it clean with white and pale pastels…
White is fresh, airy and clean. When I think of a summer home, I think of crisp white curtains blowing in the breeze! Don’t be afraid of decorating with white – working with different tones and textures of white gives a space some interest and drama.
…But add in some pops of color
