Summer’s long days filled with sunlight, lush color and wonderful scents are an inspiration to us all. I often think it would be great to “bottle-up” the essence of summer and carry it with me.

I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.  L.M. Montgomery, Anne of the Island

One of our go-to designers provided Modern Sanctuary with some tips on how to bring the summer season into our homes and keep that warm feeling alive all year.

The team at D2 Interieurs is recognized for their brilliant use of color, pattern and texture. Founder Denise Davies believes in designing interiors that are full of life and fun. She describes D2’s design aesthetic:

“The D2 team mix their love of modern sophistication with a little rock and roll to achieve a fun yet timeless look. D2’s signature has become creating sophisticated, chic, family-friendly environments matched to each individual client’s needs and tastes.”

Denise understands the magic of summer and sees it as the perfect time to break out pops of color to brighten your space. Here are some of her helpful hints for freshening up your home.

Here comes the sun: “Don’t be afraid of color. A fresh coat of paint can be a real game changer! Paint the ceiling too – it’s the 5th wall!”

Bold colors can be sophisticated and modern. Every room deserves good deign, including the kids’ playroom. Minimal and clean lines work very well in a room. After all, color makes people happy.

Stay Out! “Outdoor furniture has become as important as ever since it is now just as stylish and versatile as what you would find indoors.”

Bring the outside in: “Fresh flowers from the garden and a fig tree can go a long way. Forget the traditional vase and be creative.”

Mix It Up! “The days of matching furniture and lighting are over. A well curated room should look like it’s been there forever. Not like a designer just left the building.”

Create vignettes with your coffee table books and magazines. Place your lights on dimmers so you can control the settings.

Chill Out: “Cool it off and simmer down. Get some comfy floor pillows and soft textures to make your living spaces more chill.”

Your house is your life. What do you want to see when you walk in the door? The answer is often not a matched set of furnishings, but a collection of things that are distinctly different but work well together.  Denise Davies
