summer keeps most of us out of the house – whether simply eating outdoors or traipsing our way across the globe! We love a good long vacation, but truth be told, there’s nothing like coming home again.

Taylor Sterling, founder of lifestyle site Glitter Guide, knows a thing or two about crafting a space that cozily inspires. Her adorable home pops up on the blog quite consistently, to our delight. And the brand new colorful rug she’s collaborated on makes for a major summer home refresh in one fell swoop.

Spend as much time out and about as you can this summer, but when you do come home, take a few of Taylor’s fresh and cozy ideas to make the most of it…

Home Sweet Home:

Nothing says home quite like your own bed. I love Parachute Home bedding. Put fresh sheets on the bed before you leave for vacation so you can come home and simply rest! 

Summer Scents:

I love coming home from a vacation and smelling the comforts of home. Like this citrus and floral Cire Trudon candle, which I burn obsessively. 

Easy refresh

I’m always excited to see the Elodie rug I designed with Lulu & Georgia in our home. It’s going to be something I cherish forever. A fresh print like this is an easy way to refresh your space for the summer! 

Toe Up:

I rarely get quiet time at home, but when I do, I go all in. I love sitting with my feet up on this comfy Lulu & Georgia Kenza Moroccan pouf.

Tea time:

Never underestimate the power of a good cup of tea!Comfort is drinking out of my favorite Jonathan Adler mug. Especially if it has Williams-Sonoma elderflower white tea in it!

Get Cozy:

Whenever I’m away from home, I miss my blankets. I can’t wait to get home and snuggle with my Lulu & Georgia Chordie throw while watching a good movie. Heaven!

Green Up:

To be honest, I can be kind of a homebody. I prefer to be home more than out on vacation. I even miss my plants when we’re gone. Right now I’ve got quite the succulent collection and I highly recommend picking up a few.
