I have always looked forward to summer. Warm breezes. Long lazy days outside. Vacations.
We rarely think of decorating our homes during the summer months, but it honestly takes very little effort to give your home a summery vibe. On those days when it’s too hot to enjoy your backyard, you’ll be glad you took a little time to decorate for summer!

Add More Whites
The number one thing I do to ready my home for summer is add white. I love all shades of white, but I always use my whitest whites to decorate for summer.
The addition of white lidded canister jars and a few other ceramic kitchen finds will brighten your kitchen counter.
Shades of ivory will help you keep the look from being too stark.
These pink and gold pillows are reversible and could easily be exchanged with the ones in our other bedroom. It is good to try to decorate your home in a way that allows for this.
Open doors make me happy. Our french doors were a must-have when we were building this home.
You are likely going in and out more than any other time of year, so make sure you create an inviting outdoor space.
Sprinkle in Summer Colors/Summer Color Scheme
Your patio is a wonderful place to use a more colorful palette. With flowering plants and trees as a backdrop, blue is a beautiful choice for summer.
Art with a bit more color will brighten your walls whether dark or light.
A splash of color is easily added to your table with salad plates.
A last simple pop of seasonal color, fresh flowers in a timeless vase.
