It's full blown summer here in the lovely Valley of the Sun, errr... or is that Death Valley... no, no, just kidding. I can only say by mid July you begin to rethink your sanity for living in the desert, as the temperatures sore to a lovely 109 and above. But hey, on the upside we may have some storms and a high of 106 by the weekend! Woo hoo!
Truly what did people do before air conditioning, let me count my blessings. :) No, really, it's lovely here most months, I promise! I love it!
Let me give you some Tuesday Thoughts to cool you off and keep you sane if you're going crazy from the heat.
Let's think summer colors, adding pops of color, small changes to shake things up a bit. Let's think bedrooms today... our retreat areas... our private oasis if you will...
If you can afford new bedding for summer that's great, if not add splashes of color to what you already have. Changing out dull curtains and adding fresh colored ones adds drama to a room. Additional accessories in the same color scheme will add more flair: candles, flowers, toss pillows, a throw at the end of the bed, perhaps a new piece of wall art, fresh colored towels for the bathroom, a new lamp or refurbished lamp or maybe just color added to the lamp shade!
The possibilities are endless...
Wall colors can be changed for a very low cost and a great impact. I can feel DIY projects coming on! Are you excited? Are you feeling creative? What a great way to stay out of the gruesome heat and feed your creativity. So start thinking how you can throw some cool changes into your home with very little spent! Feel free to share your great ideas for fun summer decorating tips, we would love to hear from you!
