WHAT IS A “SUMMER PILLOW”
Here’s the good news, a summer pillow is any pillow you use to lighten up your existing decor. It usually works with the other pillows you have to give a nod to the summer season!
The are an important part of your summer decor!
Lots of us love a pillow with a distinctive summer motif. I do too! They are so pretty with our decor! But here’s a little word to the wise…
A little goes a long long way!
Here’s a trio of pillows with a summer design on one.
or how about this…
Just one pillow with a summer design is all you need to highlight the season in a room! More than that will look overdone, busy, and confusing! So if you like a summer motif choose one that is really spectacular (I love love love the fish above for our outdoor patio room) and let it shine!
A “summer pillow” is not all about a summery design.
Pillows that are light-colored or made of summer-weight fabrics create a spactular seasonal look! And don’t forget natural fibers! They look summery and add texture to a room!
Here’s a mix that looks fresh and summery…
and this works too…
WHY CHANGE OUT PILLOWS
Changing the pillows in a room is the quickest and easiest way to change the look of a room! As the weather gets warmer we want a change. We love the ease of summer and it should be reflected in our decor!
Pillow offer a big punch of style! Change one or two or even three pillows this year! And start building a four season collection!
WHAT PILLOWS ARE TRENDING THIS SUMMER
I love to see what’s white hot for each year or season. And when it comes to pillows this summer they are gorgeous!
Almost every summer navy blue shows up in all it’s glory!!! Navy and white is iconically summer and feels like the beach!
But you don’t have to want a beachy look in your home to use navy. It can look very sophisticated or casual, just so perfect for summer!
You can think of navy as somewhat of a neutral. Almost any color looks beautiful with navy!
Here are some navy pillows for summer!
Navy is the quintessential decorating color of summer! Use white with navy for a crisp, clean look. Adding camel and tans to navy and white make for a cozier look!
This year burnt and saturated yellows leaning towards gold are big again! I love this warm golden color in my decor! And I have a few pillows with that deep burnt yellow to use in my home during the summer season!
This pretty sunburnt color works well with almost any neutral and will look so happy with white!
Other popular colors this summer are citron to olive green and burnt orange to coral.
BEST TIPS FOR MIXING SUMMER PILLOWS INTO YOUR DECOR
When you think about summer pillows, or any pillow for that matter sing the song The Farmer In The Dell! At the end of the song…
the cheese stands alone!
Don’t let your pillows be the cheese!!!! Pillows are friendly and like being together! They are not solitary! So, no cheesy pillows!
Mix and match pillows you are currently using with a new (or two or three) in-season pillows!
Add a new pop of summery color to a room with a pretty pillow!
