During sunny days, printed fabric sofas are a smart move. Because it has specific properties of absorbing sweat, resulting in a comfortable lounge experience. Choose sheer comfortable and breathable materials such as cotton or velvet for the upholstery of the sofas.

Let the Light In

Summers are all about putting away dark and nubby things and letting the sunshine into your home. Swapping dark curtains, add natural window treatments, hang bold statement mirrors to let the light in. Mirrors reflect natural light instead of absorbing it. So, place large accent mirrors in your entryway or in your bedroom, to enlighten up your room, it also helps to create an illusion of the large space in a crunched home.
