Replace heavy curtains, throws, and cushions with lighter fabrics in bright colors, floral patterns, and gingham to instantly give your home a summery feel. Opt for linen or cotton fabrics in pastel shades or vibrant hues that exude warmth and brightness. Gingham, with its classic checkered design, is perfect for adding a playful yet elegant vibe.  In the living room, trade thick winter throws for lightweight cotton ones in cheerful gingham or floral patterns, perfect for adding pops of color to your sofa or armchairs. 

These simple swaps with gingham and other light, bright textiles will transform your home into a welcoming, vibrant summer retreat.

Declutter:Less is More


Embrace a relaxed, minimalist style this summer by decluttering your space and simplifying your decor. Summer decor often thrives on a clean, airy feel that allows natural light and breezes to flow freely. Clear out unnecessary items and choose simple, fresh pieces that add to the serene ambiance. At Bon Femmes, we believe in keeping things light and breezy, helping you create a tranquil and inviting home environment perfect for the summer season.

Greenery & Florals


Add fresh flowers and potted plants to your space to instantly bring a touch of nature indoors and enhance the summery atmosphere. Greenery and florals are perfect for brightening up any room, making your home feel vibrant and alive. Strategically place potted plants in corners and on shelves, and arrange fresh floral bouquets on your dining table or in the living room for a pop of color and a refreshing scent. At Bon Femmes, I love incorporating natural elements into home decor to create a welcoming and lively environment. Embrace the beauty of summer by filling your home with lush greenery and blooming flowers, creating a serene and cheerful space.

Oranges are a fantastic way to infuse a summer vibe into your home while adding a touch of visual appeal. Beyond their delicious taste, oranges make great decor elements. Their vibrant color instantly brightens up any space, evoking feelings of warmth and sunshine. Displaying a bowl of fresh oranges in your kitchen or dining area not only adds a pop of color but also serves as a healthy and inviting snack option. You can also incorporate oranges into your decor by using them as centerpieces or accents in floral arrangements, creating a refreshing and summery atmosphere.


Fresh Summer Scents


Bring the essence of summer into your home with fresh scents. Use scented candles, diffusers or incense with summery fragrances like citrus, lavender, or santal to make your home smell as vibrant and refreshing as it looks. Bon Femmes offer a variety of candles and scents perfect for the summer season. The collection includes delightful scents that will transport you to a sunny beach or a blooming garden, enhancing the summer vibe in every room.
