Here is a clever idea for the warmer months: clean out your fireplace and decorate it with books and plants. Since you probably won't be lighting any fires in July this is an excellent way to add character to your space. Plus the cool tiles will feel nice as you lounge plant side and finish your summer reading list.
Turn any bedroom or living room corner into an instant reading nook by anchoring it with a comfy armchair, side table, ottoman, and tall open bookcase. How you style it is up to you.

This open living room showcases quintessential mid-century shapes and finishes. The sleek sofas and rich chairs create enough of a throwback yet trendy feel when mixed with blue tones and brass accents adding warmth and sense of timelessness.
In this mid-century modern bedroom, geometry is key. The hard lines mix with circles, curves, and swirls for a geometric experience that's pleasing to the eye. Mixing so many patterns and materials successfully, but sticking to a simple color palette like black and white makes it a lot easier.
Classic furnishings in a neutral palette is the foundation of a refined-rustic bedroom. So are light, distressed woods, which add to the serene, quiet appeal. Start with a wooden bed and a pair of oatmeal ottomans, then work in a woven chair, a white-painted dresser, and a grainy-wood bookcase. The key is to keep to natural tones and soft neutral hues, all of which will create a collected and sophisticated vibe that's perfect for any bedroom design.
In this coastal living room, being described as a beach bum isn't a bad thing. The muted turquoise walls and the light, creamy decor creates the illusion of a beach indoors. The hanging plant and curtains in the background draw your eye to the beautiful view of the actual beach.
