5 tips to get your home decor ready for summer

There is a good chance you don’t live in a home that resembles the Greystone Mansion or own a Nantucket waterfront cottage with Missoni dining chairs. If you do, we’re waiting patiently for a weekend invitation. But if you lack such a residence in your real estate holdings, there are always ideas that can be poached on a bargain scale from those impossibly perfect decor programs, such as Bravo’s “Million Dollar Decorators.” Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Mary McDonald , two of the stars of the show, were at the Boston Design Center last week to speak to design industry professionals about their new fabric collections. While they were in town, we grilled them on trends to rid winter-weary homes of their doldrums. Here are some of their suggestions to help transform your home into a more stylish, breezy space for summer. Christopher Muther
