Creating a Relaxing Home Environment

Image
A relaxing home puts people at ease and makes them want to visit and spend time with you and your family.

Would you like your home to reflect a relaxed summer lifestyle, where you and your guests can walk around barefoot and throw the windows open to bring in the summer sun?

Light, neutral colors and natural surfaces can make a home seem more relaxed and casual. Think bamboo floors, natural fiber rugs, wicker furniture and linen slipcovers. For window coverings, think Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades with their traditional styling and natural woods. Or Palm Beach® Custom Shutters that combine good looks and low maintenance.






Want your house to be comfortable, and not breakable this summer? Put away the fancy table settings and expensive knick-knacks. Bring out casual accessories that can make the trip from indoor to outdoor living. Then put your feet up and enjoy the summer!

May Color of the Month

This is HGTV's color of the month for May:

Here are a few ideas on how to do it in a room:
