Hey Do More for Less readers, guess what? Summer is just around the corner! Seems like it was just yesterday we were celebrating the Holidays with our loved ones right? Anyway, summer is one of our favorite times of the year here at Old Time Pottery, we just love the bright colors coupled with tons of natural light. In fact, it’s the best way to bring a touch of summer into your home. And we know what you’re thinking, “I would love to do that, but I don’t have the money or the time to restyle my home.” It’s ok though, below we’re going to show you how you can easily update for summer for less!

  1. White:

    Don’t underestimate the effect white has on a home. Adding white accent furniture, curtains, bedding, or white trim to a room can completely change the feel of a room almost instantly.

  2. Revive:

    Change your plants! Now is a great time to toss out those winter plants on their last leg and bring in some fresh, bright flowers. Gerbera Daisies, Orchids, Chrysanthemums, etc. should do the trick! They’re nice and bright and should add a breath of fresh air to your home.

  3. Display:

    A great way to refresh your home for summer is to display some cute, floral plates. You can use a simple display stand, or get really creative and make an arrangement on a wall.

  4. Think Casual:

    Nothing says summer like casual. You can use wicker, rustic iron, or white accent furniture in place of heavy upholstered pieces. Also, use lots of colorful accent pillows. This will add a more light hearted feel to a room and remember, the more space and natural light, the better!

  5. Restyle:

    Get rid of any dark accessories like velvet pillows, wool throws, and even that dark leather club chair and ottoman (don’t worry you can bring them back in when the weather changes) and replace them with bright accents! Even think about adding a fresh coat of paint in a bright, summer color to your walls or furniture. Anything to give your home a fresh update!

We hope these easy-to-do updates will set you on the path to an updated home this summer. Remember that you don’t have to break the bank to have an in-style, trendy home. With the help of Old Time Pottery, you can get the designer look you want for less!
