Bring Summer Inside

Bring Summer Inside – Summer is a season to celebrate the outdoors. Open the windows and let the soft warm breezes sweep through your home. Whatever your style, adding a dash of unexpected color to a room or restyling a full room with the soft colors of a beach house will bring the essence of summer days to your space.

Bring the feel of summer camping in the woods to your home all year round with the use of natural elements. This room has all the feel of an outdoor shower with the use of pebbles, along with wood finishes. There is a broad range of porcelain tile on the market today with wood-like finishes. A great choice for adding a natural feel to a room with the durability of tile.

The cool tones of this dining room create the mood for relaxing summer dinners with friends and family. Use of wood brings warmth to the room and a feel of nature to the interior. We love the indoor/outdoor opportunity with opening the home with a sliding track window system.

Primary colors add a touch of refreshing whimsy to a room all year round. Rotate accents such as baskets, throw pillows or an area rug seasonally to change the feel throughout the year.
