Take inventory of your decorative pillows. Are they dark colors and heavier fabrics? Switch them out with some inexpensive summery looks that pop against your neutrals. Try lightweight silk (or poly blends) or cotton pillows that tie in to your overall look, but bring summer colors like yellow, red, orange, bright green or lighter blues, into your home. To save, buy pillow covers and just top off your old pillows.

One of the most inexpensive (and fragrant) ways to update the look of a room is to bring in new plants and fresh flowers. Get some bright pots, or paint the pots you have (just sand down and use acrylic spray paint) and add flowering plants. If you don’t have a green thumb, pick up some flowers when you make your weekly trip to the grocery store.

Has your deck or porch turned into a parking lot for bikes and toys? Clean up the clutter and use that space! Most big-box stores offer reasonably priced outdoor furniture. Set up a pretty dining table or Adirondack chair and enjoy the outdoors.

Update your dining experience for the season with dinnerware that uses natural themes – tropical, ocean, or floral – to bring the beautiful outdoors to your dining experience. Also, update the kitchen with dishtowels and oven mitts that have the same themes.

Put the heavy duvet away for the season and cover your bed with a cotton or linen coverlet for the season. Pick a lighter color to brighten the whole room, and add throw pillows in sunny colors, or with patriotic themes.
