It’s Summer … time to lighten and brighten things up and get rid of any Winter-y details (such as fur throw blankets and / or anything heavy) in your home. There are simple ways to change up your space for the season, and we are excited to show you how. We just received our monthly West Elm catalog in the mail and were immediately inspired to prepare a look that will spruce up your home for the Summer in just 5 quick steps.

1. Change up your throw pillows and blankets to more Summer-y colors and patterns. Use lighter blankets for relaxing on the couch. We selected these favorites as we love the light color scheme and geometric patterns they have to offer.

2. Fresh flowers are exceptionally nice to have around your house during the Summer. Use small vases to display flowers throughout your home. We are loving this set of miniature glass vases and the different shapes and colors they come in.

3. Whether BBQing or eating light, it is great to have a set of casual dishes and glassware for outdoor dining. Fun dishes in Summer-y colors and patterns like these ones are perfect when paired with bright placemats.

4. Switch out your bedding to a more lightweight option. Lighter colors and breathable material will be greatly appreciated as the Summer heat rises, and this pintucked cotton option is no exception.

5. Add fun Summery accessories like lanterns and candles to your outdoor sitting area. This is the time to spruce up your patio furniture as well. We are in love with this gorgeous ottoman and the other furniture pieces it comes with, and Lauren is hoping to add some fun lanterns like these to her outdoor seating area this Summer.
