Quick and Easy Ways To Create A Summer Decor


Why Not Have A Vacation Décor All Summer Long?

This week’s inspiration is from cocolapinedesign.   As we kick off the first days of summer…who hasn’t gotten the urge to change up our interior a bit?  Ever come back from a vacation rental and longed for the sloppy-chic idea of a slipcover?  Not a slipcover kind of gal?  Not to worry…let’s look at ways to update our homes for summer decor!

Ooooh…here’s what we love about this summer decor!

  • we’ll never know what color the sofa is under the DIY washed soft white slip covers…looks almost like a set of white bed linens, shams and some euro pillows
  • perhaps there is a warm-hued winter rug under this creamy summer choice.  in the fall it comes back on top to cozy up on cooler nights
  • just the right amount of color in the striped and floral pillow covers; it’s so easy to have several sets of covers for the same size pillows each season
  • a wide mouth hurricane is perfect for fresh cut branches in any season
  • got a dark center table?  use a few linen napkins to lighten up the top for the summery season
  • not sure if you are a slipcover kind of person?  how about a soft, sloppy throw to cuddle with after a summer night bath as your hair dries?
  • and candles, yes a must every season, love the look of this taper but might need something a little more pet/family friendly…what about a light scent in a contrasting black and white jar?
  • we can never go wrong adding some woven/rattan into a lighter decor, a simple tray, or basket, adds instant texture and interest
  • keep the lightning bug twinkle going with some shiny silver votives and long burning tea candles
  • hosting a few couples over for a summer dinner…keep the decor concept going in the dining room that seldom gets used again until fall
  • what about it?  ready to lighten up for the season? we are!

    1. And so easy to add color as well. Think of sandy beaches and colorful beach towels!

    1. You are so right that our decor can influence our moods in so many ways. Thanks for reading!

  1. I love the baskets especially…it’s like a straw purse for the room.
