Using pillows, blankets, tablecloths, and rugs with bright, colorful prints is a great way of making a room look lighter and feel more summery. If you don’t like bright patterns, you can go with some summer colors.  Lighter colors like sky blue and light green can help make a room brighter and feel more like summer.  Any color you see outdoors can work well in your home, although don’t use too many dark or bold colors. Flowers, of course, are a great way of bringing the summer indoors.  Pick your favorite flowers and fill your home with them!  This not only gets you the bright colors of summer, but it also brings in the scents of summer, too! Naturally, you can cut some of the flowers growing in your flowerbed, but if you don’t have any, we can help you.  Let us deliver some gorgeous summer flowers in Roanoke, VA, right to your...
