Top Summer Decorating Ideas to Choose From

After reading through these resources, here are some of my favorite ideas for summer decorating:

  • Use fresh flowers arranged in rustic containers like metal pots or watering cans to add a summery touch to any room. Even authentic looking summer faux flowers are good to use.
  • Incorporate natural elements like potted plants and earthy tones to create a breezy, relaxed vibe.
  • For simple centerpieces, fill decorative bowls with seasonal fruits like lemons, limes, oranges, or apples for cheerful, edible decor. Even the bright reds and oranges of peppers add vibrant hues as inspiration for accessories like vases or artwork.
  • Swap out heavy curtains and linens for lightweight, airy fabrics like linen, cotton, or sheer materials to brighten up spaces.
  • Use bright, cheerful colors in accent pieces like throw pillows, rugs, or artwork.
  • Use bright summer shades of yellow, orange, pink, and blue.
  • Decorate mantels or shelves with summery accents like potted succulents, seashells, coral, or driftwood.
  • Bring in floral and tropical patterns by incorporating fresh flowers, plants, bright colors, and natural textures.
  • Create inexpensive DIY projects so you can affordably refresh your home for summer.
  • Look for fabrics or wallpapers featuring lush botanicals, palm fronds, or hibiscus blooms in shades of coral, aqua, and green. These patterns work well on upholstery, curtains, or accent walls.
  • Decorate with fresh flowers and plants. Fill vases with seasonal blooms like sunflowers, peonies, or hydrangeas. Potted plants like palms, ferns, or succulents also add a lively, natural touch.
  • Woven materials like rattan, jute, seagrass, and wicker lend an organic, beachy vibe perfect for summer. Use these textures in furniture pieces, rugs, baskets, trays, or placemats.
  • Use shades of blue and white – quintessential summer colors – that are reminiscent of clear skies and ocean waves. Use varying tones like navy, turquoise, and crisp white throughout your decor.
