Elle Decoration, June 2011 - Get set for summer!

Without doubt this is the best issue from the Elle Decoration team in quite some time. The 'get set for summer' issue does exactly that: It helps set up your home for summer by providing decorating ideas for the warmer months ahead. From new summer colour palettes to light and airy home tours, the pages are filled with inspirational ideas for updating your home and improving the way you live both indoors and outdoors. Yep, as well as their usual decorating news, the team have included an idea-packed feature on creating a beautiful garden space whether you wish to host alfresco dinners or just relax in the sunshine. Another favourite spread was June's 'At Home With', which features the colourful home of textile designer Fi Douglas. Whilst we're on the subject of top notch home tours, this issue also affords us with a nose around the beautiful and delicate home of Swedish-American artist and photographer Kristin Perers. So as you can see, this sure is an issue for keeps. What stands out from the issue for you?
