If you ask me, the best thing about summer isn't the balmy weather, but that it's the one season of the year in which laziness isn’t just tolerated it’s encouraged. And I'm all for applying this relaxed attitude to everything from the outfits I wear (hiya, breezy dresses!) to the space I inhabit.
As luck would have it, creating a summertime oasis that fits with the season's laid-back mood requires a refreshing lack of effort. The trick: forget the big pieces and focus your attention on accenting your home like you would your favorite little white dress, with well-chosen accessories. Swap that chandelier you never really liked for a glamorous lamp draped in capiz shells. Toss a palm-print pillow on your sofa. Angle a high-drama rattan chair in the corner. A total transformation, that required nothing more of you than clicking 'add to cart'.
