I’m so excited to talk “summer” today! Summer decorating ideas! And what’s more fun than decorating our homes with a nod to a more relaxed, warm and easy way of life!
THE EASIEST SUMMER DECORATING IDEA- PILLOWS
You knew I was going to say that, right?
So I’m reminding you to get out your summery pillow or make a small investment in new ones! Summer is the time to lighten up your pillows! Add a little sass or change the fabric to linen or colorful cotton! Lots of stores and online sites carry great summery pillows.
Look for a post next week with my favorite summer pillows!
HANG A SUMMER WREATH ON YOUR FRONT DOOR
A summer wreath on the front door is a way to say WELCOME to the outside world! Such an easy summer decorating idea that sets the mood for your whole home! A front door looks bare without a wreath!
I like my summer wreath to show up and show-off!

EASY SUMMER IDEA- STYLE A SUMMERY MANTEL
This summer I have a very laid back attitude towards styling a mantel! What could be easier than adding a few seasonal elements to a mantel and calling it done!
Just remember, keep your mantel very simple. Use elements that look like summer and vary their heights! And try an asymmetrical arrangement on your mantel. It gives a very casual vibe!
BEST SUMMER DECORATING IDEA… CREATE A VIGNETTE
How about bringing out all the fun summery kitchen decor to create a vignette? I love to play with dishes and they look so pretty displayed on a table!
Here are some ideas for any summer vignette, kitchen or not…
- picnic dishes
- drink dispensers
- summer napkins
- anything patriotic
- summery flowers
LIGHTEN UP YOUR CURTAINS
Need a summer decorating idea that will change the look of your entire room? How about changing out your curtains? Or taking down your curtains altogether?
Think about replacing your curtains with sheer curtains for the summer. They are sooooo inexpensive and look breezy, light and pretty!
I chose to change out my living room curtains for white linen ones. Oh, am I thrilled! My whole room looks lighter and less formal!
BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
Summer is the time to bring lots of organics into your home. Cut flowers, topiaries, herbs, moss and willow balls.
And don’t forget stick and twigs and fluff! My favorite summer accent is a great string of driftwood! BAM! Instant summer!
ADD A SUMMERY RUG
Not until I got sisal rugs did I see what a big, big difference these inexpensive area rugs made in my home. I love them!
You can find jute and sisal rugs at Overstocks and Wayfair for very reasonable prices.
Jute is a style friendly decor element. It plays so nicely with any style!
Just thinking about all these summer decorating ideas makes me so excited to get them out and start decorating.
