Summer is already on the porch and with the coming of this warm and pleasing season we steadily refresh our wardrobes. But let’s not forget about our homes! Its decorative “dresses” also deserve a nice change. And our selection of ideas will help you choose the best option!
1. Textured rugs
Pay attention to textured rugs with different height of pile, which adds them visual depth and dynamics and gives pleasant tactile sensation when you walk barefoot.

2. Unusual couch pillow covers
One of the easiest and quickest ways to refresh your interior is to replace the covers on your couch pillows. This summer designers set their choice upon trendy novelties decorated using traditional crafts, such as embroidery, laces or macramé.

3. Eye-catchy furniture upholstery

4. Bright curtains
One more way to change the scenery easily and without great spendings is to redress the windows. A trendy designer trick is to use mixed drapery of fabrics with mismatched patterns. And the best option to escape the heat of the sun is using roller blinds.
