Summer Decorating Ideas for Your Home

Summer is the perfect time to give your home a facelift or just spruce it up with a little something festive!  From bold colors to splashy prints, a few easy decor changes can make your home a tropical getaway, perfect for this year’s staycation!

Nothing says aloha to summer like flower prints!  Florals are hot right now. If you’ve been considering incorporating this trendy look into your home, summer is the perfect time to make the leap. From wallpaper to shower curtains to throw pillows, it’s easy to add a pop of nature to any room in your house. Bonus: You won’t have to worry about keeping these flowers alive!

We’ve all finished the last season of Tiger King but that doesn’t mean animal prints have to end!  Channel an African safari and add a few animal print details throughout your home this summer. Some people shy away from this wild design, but as long as you keep it simple with a detailed rug or a fancy throw, you can incorporate it in a myriad of decor styles.

Since most of us won’t be planning any big vacations abroad this year, why not bring a bit of Moroccan inspired décor into your home!?  The sun may be blistering outside, but you can enjoy a desert-inspired look inside in the comfort of your air conditioning. Vibrant colors and mosaic patterns are staples for this style.  We also love Moroccan lanterns; hang them on your porch or sun room for instant exotic flair.

Summer decorating is about more than just the visuals. Tropical and citrusy scents can set the mood for summer in your home. The secret to getting that perfect mix of scents is to choose only a few scents for your home, all in the same product line or brand. Match your candle holders and diffusers to each room for a customized look, even with only one or two scents through your home.

Speaking of smells, who can smell the burgers and barbeque sauce already?!  Chances are you will be doing your fair share of staying at home this summer and it is the perfect time to take advantage of your outdoor space.  For that reason, there is no need to limit your decorating enthusiasm to the indoors.  Bring that energy outside to your porch or outdoor grilling station!  It doesn’t even have to be anything elaborate or expensive!  Admit it–you’ve been to a bar, a restaurant or even a wedding that had string lights everywhere and you loved it. These country fair-inspired globe lights are super easy to install and very on-trend. Hang them on a deck or even from the trees to create a festive and cozy feel.  And, don’t underestimate the power of bright colors!  Add bright and cheerful outdoor pillows and an outdoor rug to complete your outdoor living space.
