Home Trends by Tracy Dunn

Set the Scene for Summer

As we celebrate our independence on the 4th of July, why not think about setting the scene on your patio with some eye-catching home trends?

Serena and Lily hit it big this summer with several home items featured in stripes, solids, and other fun patterns.

The sling back chairs are a hot trend because they are comfortable and fold up quickly for easy storage. Throw out your terry cloth towels, and load up on Fouta Towels…the chic option for the beach, by the poolside, and out on the boat. They are lightweight and breathe in our humid weather! One of my favorite items I found this summer is the insulated beverage cooler wrapped in rattan; fill it up with your favorite beverages, and let your guests help themselves.

Dash and Albert is such a great affordable rug resource. The two I featured are indoor/outdoor. String lighting has become a great way to add ambience to your patio and yard. I love the ones I featured here from Restoration Hardware.
