Ashley Whittaker, an interior designer in New York. “In my dining room in Millbrook, I have this sepia-toned, pastoral-scenic wallpaper that skews very fall,” she said. “So in the summer, I put a really fresh, pretty tablecloth on the mahogany table, which just brightens up the whole room.”

Ms. Whittaker also uses summer as an opportunity to change her flatware, dinnerware and glassware — specifically, she switches to bamboo-handled flatware, playfully patterned plates and colorful drinking glasses.

“Storing things that you love, and rotating them with the seasons, freshens everything up,” she said, and allows you to enjoy favorite accessories all over again.
