Today we sat outside and just enjoyed the deck!! It’s the weekend of July 4th, we are barbecuing  with friends, and then fireworks with the girls!! This begins a week of R & R (rest and relaxation)  for us, just a little getaway!!  The Northeast is almost etherial in summer. Its seems as if all of a sudden the days are long and warm, the air seems still and the blue of the sky and green of the trees just takes you in to its circle. It’s the Summer Style, casual, relaxed, light and airy!!

Do you have a summer style at home too?  It is equally casual, filled with cotton slip covers and toss pillows bold patterns and stripes.  All of these ingredients combine to fill the home with breezy effortless style. 

Some ideas for outdoor spaces, if  your pressed for cash, use your porch to entertain or simply to read and relax, creating the proper  ambience is the key . Be sure to install the right lighting for evening  hours, and put up curtains or blinds to help filter the daytime sun. Invest in a carpet for your space to anchor the seating area, potted flowers or large outdoor plants give color and life to any space. Water fixtures are another great way to add ambiance and beauty to an outdoor setting. Although they can be pricey, you can actually make a water fixture for pennies on the dollar just by using a big planter, an electric fountain kit and a bag of pebbles. Geometric fabric in bold colors add a fun colorful element to the porch, There are endless possibilities with outdoor drapes and fabrics.
So kick back relax and Happy 4th of July!!!
