If you only add 3 items to your home this summer, it should be these

Let's not pretend we redecorate our homes seasonally. As much as we aspire to Martha Stewart-level endeavors in our home, we're not ones to swap out our heavy winter curtains for breezy linen ones or completely overhaul our pillow collection every four months. In this time-poor era, we're lucky to find a few minutes to decorate at all.
