5. Style a sum­mery dresser-top dis­play. Up­dat­ing for the sea­son can be as sim­ple as set­ting up a few pretty vin­tage bot­tles and a jar of shells atop your dresser. Change up the dis­play by plac­ing new fresh or dried flow­ers, fra­grant herbs or seed­pods in the bot­tles each week. Styling tip: Hunt down old sea­side-theme books with pretty cov­ers at yard sales and flea mar­kets. These vin­tage trea­sures not only look lovely stacked up on your shelves, but they can pro­vide a re­fresh­ing change of pace from cur­rent book­store fare.
