Here are our Top 5
A quick and simple way of lightening a room is by changing doona covers & cushions to lighter colours.
While darker colours add to a cosy feel in the cooler months,
light & fresh colours work best in the warmer months.
For doona covers I like predominately white, beige & soft pastel colours.
This will give a fresh feel to the room and set the tone for warmer days and nights.

Bring the outdoors in.
While flowers aren’t always possible in the warmer months as they don’t last as long, look to your own garden for fresh branches. Lemon tree, bamboo & Camelia leaves will all last for weeks and add greenery to a space.
Enjoy your floorboards.
By removing rugs you can enjoy the feel of cool floorboards beneath your feet.
Pay attention to your outdoor area.
It’s time to re-stain decks, wash outdoor cushions covers & dress up the area you’re going to be spending more time in. I love to buy inexpensive doona covers for outdoor daybed mattresses & they’re easy to add to the wash when needed. Outdoor cushion covers are an excellent investment as they’ll retain their colour when left in the sun.
By adding fairy lights you can instantly transform an outdoor space
Make your home smell like Summer.
I’m a huge lover of room scents and while Winter smells are more apple & cinnamon, Summer smells are a light & fresh citrus.
Making your own natural air freshener without chemicals is simple and far better for your family and pets. Lemons are a natural deodoriser and will add a fresh scent to your home.
To make your own Air Freshener you will need the following:
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
2-3 drops of lemon, lime or orange essential oil
500ml of hot water
Add all of the above to a small spray bottle & shake well.
This citrus fragrance will instantly transport you to a summer place.
Until next time
