There's nothing quite like reviving a piece of furniture, taking something you love and making it perfect for your space. Pouring yourself into a home DIY project is an experience to be savored and Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan is the Holy Grail.

Bright & Shiny Decor Curated by a Designer
When the sun gets hot and the pool starts to sparkle, even the best of us give into the lazy days of summer. If you're already caught up in that summer fever, what's better than a shopping experience that requires minimal effort - yet yields beautifully chic results? MIX by RJI just launched a new website to showcase designer Rebecca Johnston's personal, hand-curated picks for summer. Her virtual shop helps clients browse a "mix" of home furnishings from different styles that work together as an interesting, cohesive whole. Price points range from affordable, quick update pieces to investment pieces meant to stand the test of time. With her bright eye for home fashion, you can add summer pieces to your home without ever leaving your pool float.

Patio Furniture Worthy of a Poolside Selfie
If you've ever tried to get the perfect angle in a poolside bathing suit selfie, you know it's all about the patio furniture. A perfectly padded chaise lounge captures only your best angles as you laze about on luxe, bright, clean fabric. And nothing's more photogenic than the fresh, contemporary design of a Summer Classics set. Aldik Home has a large selection of floor sample patio sets available for up to 60 percent off.

Design A Personal Zen Den
Now that you've cleared out the clutter, it's time to fill your sparkly new spaces with the little design
touches that make you happy. And right now, we could all use a little more serenity in our lives.
So why not take this opportunity to turn any space into a personal sanctuary?

Choose a Piece that Makes You Swoon
Finding your own personal zen is just that - personal. That's why, in order to create the perfect space to escape to, you need to tap into the looks, styles and colors you like best. Like a scavenger hunt for happiness, finding the right furniture pieces to spruce up your zen den is a whole lot of
fun. All you need is a wide selection, a little inspiration and maybe an expert to guide you on your hunt. And you'll find it all at A Royal Suite Home Furnishings at 56 percent off on Memorial Day weekend. They're also throwing a huge tent sale with major markdowns up to 80 percent off on today's most beautiful styles.
Paint a Soothing Palette
Nothing says zen den better than a fresh coat of paint in soothing neutral colors. And soothing doesn't have to mean white or gray. You could opt for a pale, misty blue, a warmed-up dusty rose or a lightly tinted sage gray. Start by playing around with a few colors you're naturally drawn to, and figure out what makes you feel grounded. Need help? Call the pros at ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING. They offer a free color consultation, as well as complimentary virtual estimates! Now that's what we call relaxing.

Add Details that Delight the Senses
Mindfulness is all about finding the awareness to live in the present moment, which is exactly what your zen den should help you achieve. One of the best ways to bring your awareness to the space around you is to engage the five senses. Start by layering in scents that promote peace and calm, such as a hand-poured lavender and sandalwood soy candle. Then add textures that make you feel warm and cozy, like a faux fur meditation cushion or a chunky knit chenille blanket. Engage the eyes with pops of color that make your heart sing, and add a calming water feature for a splash of nature's music. You'll be on your way to a meditative state within minutes.

Bring Zen to Surprising Spaces
Don't forget to add some relaxing design touches to the spaces that feel less than zen, like the kitchen. If your kitchen is feeling stale and uninspired, it's time to brighten things up a bit. We love this backsplash by Woodward Kitchen & Bath because it brings in a touch of color and texture without being overwhelming. Plus, Woodward's designers can help you design a custom look that's all your own. With over 30 years of experience in the design industry, these local experts can help with everything from design to full general contracting services.
