1. Scent your surroundings
When we think of summer our mind is filled with memories & sounds, for us there is nothing more relaxing than the sound of waves rolling onto the shore, the warm feeling of the sun on the skin and the smell of salty sea air. Bring the sun-soaked joy of the summer season indoors, look for candles and home sprays with crisp citrus, herbal, floral, and sea salt notes to evoke memories of sandy beach days and time spent surrounded by nature.

2. Bring in the neutral tones
Natural fabrics can help create a light & airy feel through the home, create an effortless, relaxed look by changing up cushion covers, curtains, table linen and bedding. We love light cottons and linens, linen is the perfect fabric to add style and comfort to your home - known to be light, breathable, and durable, it grows softer over time with each wash.
