Simple Summer Decorations

My living room is the most used room in our home. It is the perfect example of how you can use three simple elements in your summer decorations without breaking the bank or spending hours redecorating. So, today I’ll be focusing on my entryway and living room, which flow one into the other.

Carry A Pop of Color Throughout Your Home

I’m obviously a neutral loving gal, as you can see from the first impression in my entryway. However, summer calls for a pop of color. The easiest way to make your summer decorations feel cohesive is to carry one or two colors throughout your home.

The color I’ve woven into my home for summer is a soft peachy pink. It is the first color on my front door wreaths that guests see when they arrive, and it is immediately carried into the living room adjoining the entryway.

My home color scheme is basically on repeat in every room this summer: white, wood/cognac, green, black, and a pop of pink. I love keeping my color palette neutral so it is easy to swap out a new color for the season.

I’ve chosen to add this soft pink to my florals, pillows, artwork, and even specifically on the rim of a pretty potted plant. It really only takes a touch of color here and there to make it feel cohesive.

Lighten Up Your Decor Accents

My second tip for effortless summer decorations is to lighten up your home decor accents. In the winter, my decor is heavily layered. There is just something about layering that makes a space feel cozy in the cold months. Conversely, for summer I want my home to feel fresh and light.

The simplicity of a simple vase of flowers makes a statement all on its own. Plus, when it is one of your pops of color it helps draw your eye to it and becomes and instant focal point.

By removing and storing some of you decor you can open up your space and help your room breath again. This is also a budget friendly mentality. Rather than seeking to add summer decorations, see what you can take away.

Add Live Plants

Let me begin tip three with a caveat. Not everyone has the time necessary to care for live plants. I’ve discovered the joy of incorporating live plants into my home over the last two years and have found plants that are extremely easy to care for.

I have a fiddle leaf fig and bird’s nest fern in my living room, while my entryway houses an unkillable money tree. I swear that beauty will live through anything. I once forgot to water it for over a month when we were renovating and it was shoved into a closet. She came out green and happy as ever. Now if only it would actually produce money… 😉
