Are you ready to dress up your home for summer? Sharing 8 simple summer decorating ideas for your home!
I’m not sure how we got here friends, but summer is right around the corner! How is Memorial Day next weekend?! It’s the perfect time for some simple summer decorating ideas! Ready or not, here it comes!
When it comes to summer decor, I’m all about the no-fuss, simple & easy ways to transition my home. Today I’m sharing 8 simple summer decorating ideas I’ll be using this year.
My very favorite way to transition my home for a new season is with throw pillows. This season I’m loving the neutral, blush & blue combo. There is just something about bringing out my blue pillows that reminds me of summer.
Not a blue person? Stick to the neutrals instead, like this Neutral, Blush, Cream & Black Pillow Combo. Florals are having a moment right now, which I’m loving, especially for summer! This Striped Pillow paired with this Gray Floral Pillow is the perfect neutral option for summer! You can see that combo styled here on my woven chairs.

Another simple way to add summer to your home is by switching out your artwork! I love to have art prints throughout my home that I can easily switch out each season. Right now I’m loving Collection Print’s new summer line! I also find a lot of my artwork on Etsy. For summer, I have this Vintage Landscape Print in my den. I’m loving the subtle summer-like colors. I also have this Wild Oak Print from Juniper Print Shop out for the summer months. Another print I have from Juniper Print Shop is this Shore Print. Perfect for summer!

3. area rug
This time of year is a great time to bring in new area rugs to lighten your spaces. This doesn’t mean you have to replace oversized ones (although I’m wanting to do that with this Tufted Persian Rug!) Anyway, you can swap out smaller rugs like entryway, laundry, mudrooms or even kitchen rugs!
I’m loving this Indoor/Outdoor Plaid Rug! It would be perfect as a kitchen runner, or in a laundry/mudroom! How fun is this Checkered Rug?!? Again, would be so fun in a laundry room or in front of a kitchen sink!

4. lightweight throw blanket
I love to have throw blankets sprinkled throughout my home. It is such a great way to add texture, color and interest to each space. I love to style them draped over the back or side of armchairs or a sofa; in a basket; on a bench; draped on the end of a bed or an ottoman. During the spring and summer months, I bring out my light-weight blankets. I’m loving this Target Blanket right now. I have it in both the blue and neutral colors. It is the perfect wait for summer! Also in LOVE with this indoor/outdoor Studio McGee Throw.

5. faux stems & plants
I love my faux stems & plants year-round, but there are a few I like to add in each summer. I’m loving this Artificial Eucalyptus Leaf Stem, as well as this Faux White Lilac Stem– both are from Target! I have had these Pottery Barn Stems for years, and they are still my very favorites! Right now they are styled in my entryway inside this Stoneware Crock, which I love. I just ordered this Faux Eucalyptus Plant, and I love it. It’s perfect for summer! I have it styled inside this Target Planter on my living room console table. Lastly, I have to mention this- how pretty is this Faux Potted Lavender Plant?!? It would be so pretty in a kitchen, on open shelving, or inside a pot on a console table!

6. fresh flowers
During the winter months, I stick with my faux plants & stems, but as soon as there is a hint of summer, I love to have fresh flowers in my home. I like to keep vases on hand for just the occasion. Right now I have fresh flowers in this Target Vase on my piano. I also love this Textured Vase for fresh flowers. This McGee & Co Vase has been on my wish list for several years! It is SO perfect for fresh flowers. It is currently 20% off with code VIPHELLOSUMMER

7. dress up your front door
Ok friends, here is one I am guilty of not being very good at. My front porch has not been summer-ized yet! I’m definitely keeping it simple this year, and here is what I would love to do- summer-like wreath, a few pots and layered rugs.
That’s It! Easy, right!

8. pretty soaps, lotions & candles
I love a pretty soap dispenser and candle in my kitchen and bathrooms! It’s fun to be able to switch out the fragrance of each when it comes to summer. I love McGee & Co. Candles, and I just ordered this Sandalwood & Fleur Scent, and I cannot wait! It is currently 20% off with code VIPHELLOSUMMER
Loving this Hand Soap & Lotion Soap Dispenser Set. You get to choose the scent you want! Place them on this Wood Pedestal to make it extra special. If you would rather buy a set, this McGee & Co. option is amazing.
