It was such a long and rainy winter down south that I really want my house to reflect that summer has finally arrived! How can I accomplish decorating for the summer without having to change my current sofa and chairs. I need to decorate on a budget. Any suggestions?

It was a long and wet winter wasn’t it? You aren’t the only one who wants to invite summer in and ask it to stay around awhile! We get this question a lot in our store.

A great way to immediately change the look of a room is by updating your pillows and if possible a throw rug. By freshening up the look of the pillows and the rug you can brighten and change the ambiance of a room to reflect the change in seasons. Look at our website, lauraramseyinteriors.com for fun rugs. We carry Dash and Albert and they are on the leading edge for bright and colorful floor coverings that don’t break the budget.

We have become big fans of Pinterest and love some of the easy decorating ideas we find on there. Recently we saw someone take an old birdcage and spray paint it white. Inside the birdcage they added battery operated LED candles of varying sizes and heights set on a timer. The result was a light and bright summer time decoration on any budget. Please feel free to follow us on Pinterest at Laura Ramsey Interiors. Enjoy your summer!

Sincerely,
Laura Ramsey
