Is your home ready for summer? Once your spring cleaning is handled, you can give your space a summer-ready look. But as Simply host Hailey Cairo points out, you don't have to spend a small fortune to give your living room a warm-weather makeover.
Instead, invest in a few cool accessories that make your home feel refreshed—think swapping out pillow covers, artwork, and even your curtains and coffee table books. (Bonus: The fall/winter stuff you stash won't take up a lot of storage space, so you can easily break them out again when the seasons change.)
Think natural, light, and beachy with your accessory picks, and you'll get that vacation vibe—even if you're staying at home.
Replace heavy window coverings with breezy linen in light, summery hues.
