I’m teaming up with Wayfair to bring you The Summer Edit, including a Q & A with me, home design inspiration and advice, and my product picks for the season.


The Wayfair Summer Edit Q & A with Kelly Clifford of Kavka Designs


Wayfair: Which area of your home are you most focused on updating or sprucing up for the summer season and why?


Kelly Clifford: Our garden terrace. We just moved into a new townhome in Manhattan and I am doing an entire overhaul of the whole house but my main priority is the outdoor terrace space with summer right around the corner. This is also my first time planting a garden so this could get messy!


Wayfair: Which color palettes are speaking to you this season?


Kelly Clifford: I tend to love neutrals with small pops of color and for the terrace I love earth tones with greenery and some bright florals in the backdrop. I prefer an organic aesthetic of woods and textures like jute, hemp or bamboo to keep with the natural flow.


Wayfair: Are there any home design trends that you are really loving right now?


Kelly Clifford: I think we are all gravitating more to our outdoor spaces for sure so I think it's really important to love your outdoor space as much as you do your indoors. There are no rules here, it truly is what suits you and your lifestyle!


Wayfair: Which activities are you most looking forward to this summer?


Kelly Clifford: Redecorating our new home and being able to actually have guests over for the first time in what feels like forever. Also this is my last summer with my kids before they go off to college, so I am especially looking forward to spending time with them.
