Easy Summer Decoration Ideas

It’s time to open your doors and let summer in! Here are easy summer decoration ideas to get your home looking and feeling summer-ready.

Open up and pare down

One of the best ways to ventilate your home on a warm summer day is by opening up doors and windows!  Pulling back the blinds not only makes your room feel larger, but it allows for natural light to spill in.  Consider trading your curtains for gossamer sheers that blow in the breeze.  You won’t be needing to bundle up in the summer sun, so take this opportunity to stow away heavy accessories, extra throw blankets, and any needless dark and gloomy decor items.  

Add a splash of color

Bring a touch of summertime color into your home in the form of an accent pillow or dish is such an easy summer decoration idea.  Mix tropical hues with nautical tones, or consider a spunky floral!  Throwing a dinner party?  Nothing screams summer like a bowl full of citrus-y fruit such as oranges and lemons!

Nature as an accessory

When looking for summer decoration ideas, look no further.  Bring the outside in!  Potted plants and bouquets of fresh-picked flowers liven up any room.  Stick to arrangements featuring warm colors – bright reds, sunny yellows, and bold oranges – for the warm months!  Not ready to commit to a centerpiece?  Try adding accent succulents to your coffee table or windowsill!  Get creative by adding other natural elements as decor – shells, geodes, you name it! 

Light it up

Warm summer nights means plenty of opportunity for bonfires, dinner parties, and outdoor movie nights!  Deck out your patios and porches with twinkly string lights, paper lanterns, and lamps.  These soft lights are not only functional, but they create the perfect summer ambiance!

Farewell fireplace

A fireplace is a beautiful, built-in focal point in living rooms, but you won’t be needing to huddle around it during the summer months.  Consider facing your furniture away from the fireplace, and shift the focus of the room to large windows or French doors.  Not ready to rearrange?  Try filling your fireplace with leftover wood, a candelabra, or even a large hunk of dried coral if you’re feeling the coastal vibe.

8 Easy Summer Decoration Ideas To Brighten Your Home

Raise the bar

Entertaining in the summer means fresh and fruity cocktails!  Give these drinks the home they deserve by creating a designated bar station.  Think island getaway or tiki bar on the beach!  Don’t be afraid to get kitchy with it by adding palm leaves or tiny paper umbrellas.  

Summer scents

To maintain a continuous seasonal aesthetic in your home, change your scents with the seasons.  Gingerbread and evergreen scents are sweet, but they should be saved for winter and holiday months.  In the summer, try refreshing scents like ocean breeze, sea salt, or cucumber!

Napping nook

Is there anything more heavenly than a nice, long nap while basking in the summer sun?  Daybeds, lounge chairs, and hammocks – indoors or outdoors – make for the perfect place to catch some well-deserved Z’s.  Pile on the pillows to create a cozy and inviting spot to relax!
