It’s all about the details, my friend! And accent decor celebrates beautiful details in our homes. Now that summer is here (well, almost), let’s chat about the best way to lighten up and decorate with our favorite summer accent decor. Here are my picks for the best summer accent decor this season.

Let’s start with baskets. They are so functional and add so much beauty to a home, inside and out!



Baskets play a pivotal role in summer decor for several reasons. First, they effortlessly evoke a sense of laid-back living, add rustic natural charm to your home, and capture the relaxed vibe of the season. Their natural textures and earthy tones complement other summer decor. And baskets are also very practical. They serve as convenient storage solutions for stashing away beach towels, sunscreen, or summer reads, keeping clutter at bay while maintaining a cohesive look.

I love how baskets can be easily incorporated into various design styles, from traditional to farmhouse, adding warmth and character to any space. Their versatility and charm make them important in creating a welcoming and inviting summer atmosphere in your home.
