Summer Fluffing in the Great Room


I hope every one had a nice 4th of July. 

I am back in the great room today...doing a little fluffing. 

pillows, candlesticks, centerpiece

Summer decorating tends to be simple. 
Light colors. Less fuss. 

pillows

I have a dark room in my house that vexes me. 
The great room is a large room, and I like it...except for the dark created by the porch roof. I know that I should not fuss about it...and you have heard me whine about it before. ha!



pillows

In the summer months I like to try to lighten up the room by adding light colored pillows on the sofa. 

candlesticks

I think that adding green also helps my dark room feel fresh. The boxwood balls are sitting on a Beatriz Ball platter. 

The aluminum candlesticks and platter help to reflect light...and more light is better in my book. At least in this room!

candles

This simple summer fluffing makes me feel better. Sometimes just a few little tweaks in a room can change the mood/feel. It's worth the time to work on a room if it helps you to feel more comfortable in it. 

centerpiece

What have you been doing to fluff your house this summer?Changing out pillows? or Curtains and bedspreads? Or maybe painting a room?

Thanks for visiting.
