In the long hot days of summer, it’s hard to concentrate on any kind of upgrade or design challenge that you may have put on the back burner. However, when you are with your family during these months, it might become more apparent what part of your home might not function in the best possible way. We always tend to feel more cramped up in our spaces when there are more people or when your children are at home for longer periods of time. I have always been in a more focused and family-aware mindset in the summer months. It is a great time to change things around in your space to reach a better accessibility for your entire family. In the month of July, we are talking and thinking a lot about our freedoms. So what better time to assess your freedom to change your surroundings?
Perhaps it only means some new pillows on a sofa or changing the fabric on that one special chair that you’ve had forever.
Whatever the case may be, take advantage of the lazy days of summer to do that one special project in your home to add that essence of family. And remember, textiles are the easiest of changes to make a HUGE impact!
