I love decorating my home year round to change with the seasons and summer is no exception! To take advantage of beautiful flowers and large plants during the growing season, bringing them inside can add a lot of your design and help you get closer to nature.
I had a chance to interview Jennifer Corredor, CEO/Founder of J Design Group (www.jdesigngroup.com) about her thoughts for summer decorating! Here is what we talked about:
Aquaberry Bliss: What design elements are a must-have for summer?
Jennifer: Because my designs are usually of a timeless nature, it’s never a dated look. However, adding pillows on a sofa or linens that speak of summer would give that look as a change.
Aquaberry Bliss: What do you think is the simplest way to spruce up a home’s interior design?
Jennifer: Painting is perhaps one of the simplest ways to change a space effortlessly.
Aquaberry Bliss: Any tips for interior design on a budget?
Jennifer: Shopping at stores that are cost-effective. There is a lot available for less these days.
Aquaberry Bliss: We love gardening indoors and creating a “jungalow” effect at home. How do you think live plants improve the design of a home?
Jennifer: Well indeed plants add a more natural environment. Also, introducing live orchid plants give you the island/jungle vibe. Fresh cut flowers also gives an organic feel.
Aquaberry Bliss: What is your favorite color to decorate with?
Jennifer: Well, I have noticed using orange always adds a punch of color and adds warmth to any space.
Aquaberry Bliss: Favorite recent design trend:
Jennifer: Designing with natural elements.
Aquaberry Bliss: Any other advice for novice or hobby designers?
Jennifer: Make your imagination go wild and experiment. It’s always about personal choices.
