Summer Trends of 2016!

We always want to keep up with the latest trends and styles that pop up left and right, and summer 2016 is no exception! We have included here the latest and greatest summer trends for your home. They stretch all over the board, but every one is on point! Try to add at least one of these summer trends to your home this year.

Glitz and Glam

Glitz and Glam

Add something shiny, something that draws attention, or some fur. Which ever way you go with this, it’s girl fun and totally chic. The best part about this trend is that you can make it look feminine or masculine. It all depends on what home decor you mix with it. For a more feminine glow, pair it with animal print or a handful of fresh flowers. If you want to take it into a masculine territory, pair it with more metals or dark grays.

Orange is the New Black

Orange is the new Black

“Orange is the New Black” isn’t just on Netflix. We’re bringing it into our homes with these summer trends. Check out these awesome dining room table end chairs. These accent chairs you can place anywhere around your home to really brighten up each room. And just how cool are those square light fixtures hanging over those white lounging chairs?! Clearly, the go-to color for pairing is a light sea blue. Keep that in mind when you are trying to mix colors and patterns.

Ruffles and Lace

Ruffles and Lace

Well, this trend just took a very feminine turn… Where my single ladies at? This is one of the summer trends that were created just for you! This should be the number one trend in all women’s apartments and homes this summer. It’s elegant, feminine, and still fun! Complement it with some beautiful pastels and you have this perfected.

White on White

White on White

Clean, airy, and calm. White on white is perfect for relaxing all summer. This is the look of your spa getaway retreat…why not bring that same feeling into your home? Even though it’s all white, doesn’t mean it’s boring. Play up the color by mixing white patterns and textures. It gives the room personality and adds flair to these summer trends.

Wild, Wild West

Wild Wild West

This wild, wild west trend is definitely bringing some edge to the summer trends group. Check out that leather fringe, those antler wall decor items, and all that animal fur. This trend spices things up a bit and gives the room a masculine and edgy flair. Decorate with darker neutrals and lots of texture. Play with it a bit and you’re sure to love it!

We’ll be showing you these hot summer trends on Fox 35 Good Day Orlando tomorrow morning. Be sure to check it out! Did you miss it? You can see Amber sharing all her summer trending knowledge on the Fox 35 website!

Mother’s Day Gifts For Every Mom

Mother’s Day is coming up, and every mom deserves something she is going to love (and actually use). For all the husband’s and children that don’t know what exactly to get for your amazing wife or mother, we have complied a few different ideas together to make this Mother’s Day a breath of fresh air for everyone. We have separated the gifts into categories depending on what mom enjoys doing each and every day. There is “the active mom”, “the stylish mom”, “the outdoor mom”, and “the foodie mom.”

This mother clearly likes to sweat it out whether she’s at the gym or doing some yoga at home. There is currently a craze over FitBit’s right now, and they have come out with girly colors to keep the craze going throughout Mother’s Day. It’s also always nice to get new versions of things you have, such as a new water bottle and a new yoga mat.  Some creative home workout equipment is always a great idea for a present as well.

The Stylish Mom would be more than happy to get an item to hold all her glitz and glam such as a jewelry dish or even a jewelry armoire. A woman also can never have too many purses, so that’s always a safe bet. ALWAYS. Some type of beauty cream or wash would be lovely to any woman as well. We love to pamper ourselves, so any skin care system would work, too. This Spa Sonic Pro Skin Care System is an extremely popular mini-machine. It works wonders and would definitely be great for Mother’s Day.

Join your mom outside for Mother’s Day! If she loves spending time outdoors on the back patio, fit in to her lifestyle (at least for the day). Ask her what the backyard is missing. If she doesn’t want anything specific, an outside doormat is always a safe bet. They get dirty very quickly and need to be replaced often anyway. If she enjoys have friends over for cookouts and such, a fruit infused pitcher is a great idea. Fruit infused water is a huge deal right now, because it is both healthy and refreshing. If you find a cute decor item that goes with her current outdoor furniture, pick it up! She’ll love it, we’re sure! Last but not least, if she is a gardener, she will love anything that adds to her garden, such as cute, extra elevated garden space.

Does your mom spend all day in the kitchen cooking, baking, or meal prepping? Pick up something for her favorite room! If she doesn’t already own a KitchenAid mixer, she needs one. It is the best kitchen appliance in the world. It would be the ultimate gift for Mother’s Day. If she enjoys spending her time drinking coffee and reading magazines, a Keurig system might be in favor this year. If she already has all the appliances she could ever need, grace that room with some cute relatable decor. There are many pieces of artwork that have fun kitchen quotes that are sure to spruce up a room.

Remember to relate the present you get her to her every day life. If you know nothing about your mother (assuming you’re a teenager looking for Mother’s Day answers), simply just ask her. More than likely, she knows exactly what she would like. If no answers surface, create something for her. Mom’s always love presents that are made by hand with love.
