Eight ways to love your home for June

Wake up your walls

Everything old is new again. This wallpaper, a contemporary take on an 1850s Parisian print, is part of a new collection based on archival tiles, textiles and ceramics. We think it’s the perfect way to explore Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Radiant Orchid, a pinky-purple. Try it out on an area rug or even an easy DIY wallpaper lampshade.

Chick portable grill

Perfect for condo balconies, small backyards or even camping trips, this lightweight, easy-to-transport mini barbecue (only 14 inches in diameter) is as eye-catching as it is functional.

Hot-hued enamel trays

We love this bright orange serving platter. Use it for delivering fruity cocktails on the patio or corralling accessories on an indoor table.

Citron lattice chairs

Place a couple of these bright, handwoven seats around your outdoor table for an instant update. Bonus: The cushions are made with Sunbrella fabric, so they're fade, water mildew resistant. Sweet!

Chair, $199, Crate&Barrel.
