During the covid-19 pandemic, many are putting summer wardrobes upgrades on hold, and eyeing home decor instead. With the home market rapidly expanding (Gap is now considering it), it’s easier than ever to bring our favorite fashion designers (Lilly Pulitzer, Ralph Lauren, and Gucci — to name a few) right into our homes.
This season is no exception, with an endless array of summer accessories and furniture options to consider. So, if you are in the mood for, say, a mini-tropical home makeover in lieu of a wardrobe upgrade, here’s a few accessories and decor options to inspire your wanderlust (and satisfy your fashion-forward cravings) in every room of your home.
