Home decor: Seeing blue in the summer
Something about the heat of the summer says “seaside.” And when you think of the ocean, it’s hues of white and blue that come to mind. Blue skies and white sand. Add that funky cocktail with a splash of Curaçao and you’ll have a perfect end to the summer.
Toss in those décor touches to the home, invite a few guests, and you’ll have a gathering few will forget during the cold, harsh days of winter.
A pretty throw, an accent pillow, or even a lampshade will help turn your home into a beachside oasis. We’re heading into cooler weather – a perfect time to entertain outside. So consider blue cushions on those outdoor chairs, and a string of white lights along the patio.
We’ve offered a few suggestions to help you send off summer with a splash:
