Quench your family’s thirst on hot summer days and brighten up a corner by adding a refreshment nook with flavored teas, fruit-flavored lemonades, or infused water to your foyer, kitchen or living room. All you need are a clear drink dispenser, mason jars, a bowl of fruits and a spritz of imagination. The combination of the color of the fruit slices and the water moisture coming from the ice-cold drink will sure spell S-U-M-M-E-R for everyone in your home.

3: Update your Fabrics
For a more bold and fun summer look, change up your upholstery and accents with bright and colorful prints. Use flamboyant shades on any of your cushions, curtains, table cloth, place mats, bedding, seat pads, etc. Choose a summer theme: from pastels, citrus, bright reds and hot pinks, it’ll add a pop of summertime flavor. Just remember to minimize accessories if you are going to use bold and bright fabrics, as you don’t want your home to look like a bag of Skittles.
