1. RETHINK COLOR
Out with the old, the dark and the drab. Lighten up and brighten up
wherever you can by painting walls, adding a bright rug, removing heavy
furniture, drapes. Store what you love for Fall.
Clean up, wash windows to let the sunshine in, move furniture and vacuum
underneath, make your surfaces sparkle and take up heavy rugs and send
them to the cleaners and store them until Fall, scrub the bare floors
for a beautiful natural and cooler look.
Give your rooms a facelift by rearranging the furniture. Create
more intimate conversation areas, as well as respite spots in
each room for soulful time, be it reading or meditating. Furniture
can move away from the fireplace and towards the outside for a
different focal point and emphasis.
Bring the outdoors in using plants, flowers in every room and
vice versa - plant outside of windows and pay attention to views,
enhancing vistas or window boxes with Azaleas, Rhododendron, Hydrangea,
and your favorite flowers for color throughout and beyond the

the ugly to give way to things of beauty, lightness and practicality.
Think shells, baskets, potpourri, and useful items such as bookends,
planters and attractive frames for updated photos and clocks.
