Q & A with Wayfair:

Wayfair: While we are nearing the end of summer, people are still eager to enjoy every last minute of it. What is your go-to design recommendation to clients who are looking to bring a relaxing vacation feel to their homes?

Katie: Lots of greenery! Palm leaf and yucca plants definitely bring the summer vacation vibe. Flowers and plants in beautiful pottery grouped together is always a great look on decks and patios.

Wayfair: Which design trend are you loving right now?

Katie: Earth tone neutrals. It has such a relaxed look especially paired with natural wood tones and white walls.

Wayfair: Do you have any how-to posts you’ve written recently that you think would help folks get started on some much-needed DIY updates? Katie: I recently did a DIY wall treatment upstairs for around $40 and completed it an afternoon. It gave an otherwise blank wall some character and texture and was so easy! You can find the tutorial here.

Wayfair: Which summer decor project that you worked on are you most excited about?

Katie: A project I recently did was paint our french doors and the surround trim black. The power of paint is amazing! It changed the look and feel of our living room and I absolutely love it. Wish I did it sooner! You can find that post here!
