Longest Day of the Year: 3 Home Decorating Tips for Summer

Inspired by the Summer Solstice, I thought I’d share a few seasonal decorating tips. Summer is a time of family, play, travel, sunshine and celebration. What could be better influences for décor?!

Tip 1: Bring the beautiful outdoors in. Incorporate nature into your design in a way that celebrates the vibrancy of the season. Be literal, using plants to add new life to a space. Or, for a lower maintenance option, consider integrating nature photographs into your decor. Go bold by sharing vivid landscapes in unexpected places like a custom photo lampshade.

Tip 2: Mix up your pillows. Swapping out last year’s throws for a fresh mix of bright pillows can make a whole room feel new. Don’t be afraid to combine colors, patterns and textures, as summer is all about having fun!

Tip 3: Brighten your walls by commemorating a favorite summer vacation. Consider framing photographs or art from your travels, creating a custom photo clock, hanging camp flags, or displaying other travel mementos. Just gazing at your wall will inspire you with memories of vacations past and get you excited for those yet to come.
