Tips to Create Relaxing Spaces for Spring and Summer

Spring and summer bring a desire for freshness and new growth. When refreshing your interior spaces for the seasons, there are several things you can consider to create a light, airy, and vibrant space. Here are some great tips to consider from our award-winning interior designers.

Lighten Up Colors & Bring in Nature

If you’re looking to paint or bring in new items, opt for lighter, brighter colors like soft pastels, whites, and light blues to give your space a fresh and airy feel. Consider changing out dark curtains for lighter ones to brighten up the room. Additionally, you can incorporate natural elements like plants or flowers that reflect the current season to add a touch of the outdoors inside. Bonus: a few plants that work with your room’s design not only add a touch of color, but also improve air quality!

Switch Out Textiles & Accessories

Swap out heavy winter throws and pillows for lighter, breathable fabrics like cotton or linen. You can select paler shades from your room’s palette to bring a bit of brightness while still keeping within the overall aesthetic. Additionally, you can rotate in some new accessories and decorative items that help make the space feel fresh. Adding new pieces to your collection that can easily be swapped out is always a great way to give yourself options!


One of the easiest ways to make your space feel fresh and new when seasons change is…decluttering! Clear out any unnecessary items to create a more open and spacious feel. Summer is all about simplicity, so keep only the essentials and create a clean, organized look.

By incorporating these tips, you can transform your interior space into a summer oasis that feels light, fresh, and inviting. If you’re in need of assistance, our award-winning design team is here to help! Visit our Showroom & Design Center in Elm Grove to get started on your next project today.
