A Summer's Guide to Decorating

Updated on July 25, 2016

Let's Play Outdoors

It's summer.... that means lots of barbeques, swimming and games. Most of us will be braving the hot outdoors hanging with friends and family. While the beach is a summer stamp, home is where the heart is. So, make the outside of your home look amazing with outdoor lanterns and string lights. Enjoy these Hexagon Lanterns from Anthropologie. They come in small, medium and large and look great in the day and night lights. Use them for decoration during the day and a romantic setting at night.


You might want to go a bit more extravagant with outdoor patio or garden parties with string lights. When the twilight glows these lights will shine bright. It's best to use solar lights. String lights easily turn a daytime cookout to a nighttime extravaganza and the flicker of twilight. Innoo Tech Solar Outdoor String Lights are a must for the summer!


Sitting Pretty

Keeping with the visuals, a lot of us have decks where we mingle and grill. Everyone will be sitting down on your furniture. Not only do you want them to be comfortable but you want them to love what they see. These outdoor patio pillowspop in the sunlight and are weather resistant. They blend well with teal cushions. Also, try teal or red oblong pillows.


Escape the Heat Indoors

Let's not forget it is summer. While we do participate in many activities that put us outdoors, it is still hot out there. When you want to spend some time under the cool air but still be reminded that it's summer time decorate indoors from the front door all the way to the bedrooms.
Walk in and drop your keys into these gorgeous petrified wood trays. Or just use them for decoration. No tray is alike so you will always be unique.


Set your living room apart from all your soon to be jealous friends by brightening it up with vases and curtains. Make sure the vases have eye popping flowers and the curtains are sheer.


These ideas are just starters to transforming your home into the ultimate summer hotspot amongst your friends. Of course, the sky's the limit and one's imagination is only the beginning. There a literally hundreds of unique things you can do to brighten up your home for the summer. Your personality is your ultimate guide so stay true to who you are and you can't go wrong!
