Bonnie Trumbull, Season to Simplify

The Portland Tribune in Season to Simplify has a nice article about our friend Bonnie Trumbull of Bonnie Trumbull Interiors.

Trumbull says this time of year, we pack away our winter wardrobe and hang our summer clothes. It's time to lighten the interior of our homes and "It's a breeze to make the transformation."

We want to "create a cooler nest" and we do that by removing many small items that make the room feel "heavier." Removing area rugs automatically lightens a room as does changing out lampshades. Trumbull replaced a mohair throw with a cotton one. The object is to "get rid of the heavier texture. Open the windows to let in more light and remove the candles to the backyard for evening light. Finally, "she brought in seasonal color, placing purple spring flowers on the fireplace mantel and white hydrangeas near the window."
