Five Easy Ways To Refresh Your Decor This Summer



Hello friends! It is time to move on from spring decor and to start embracing all things summer around the home and garden! I am making a few easy changes to my home for summer that I will be sharing on June 11h for the Summer Home Tours hosted by Marty at A Stroll Through Life!


Redecorating each season doesn’t mean you have to do a major renovation or repaint your entire house!  Really it’s all about changing things around and adding just a few new accessories. Today I am sharing Five Easy Ways To Refresh Your Decor For Summer.

1. Switch Out Throw Pillows

Switching out throw pillows seasonally is a tried and true decorating tip that most design enthusiasts use to keep their homes looking and feeling updated without having to spend a lot of money.

One of this summer’s hottest color trends is blue, and it’s easy to bring in just a bit of blue through throw pillows if you aren’t ready to commit to an overwhelming amount of blue all over the house.  Throw pillow covers are a great choice for changing the look of pillows inexpensively, and you won’t have to find a place to store a bunch of extra pillows when you aren’t using them.

2. Incorporate Natural and Organic Decor

Summer is a great time to bring the outdoors in by using stylish accessories with an organic feel. Try incorporating natural elements such as driftwood, seashells, succulents or other earthy objects around the house. I am going to make a stylish and interesting DIY driftwood and succulent planter soon.

3. Add some Boho Chic and Minimalist Accent Pieces

The hottest decorative accents for 2018 are boho chic and minimalist style pieces such as baskets, macrame planters, tribal print rugs and anything with pom-poms and tassels! Even if your home is traditional, vintage or country, there are some beautiful boho chic accessories that can still blend in beautifully. Baskets are perfect in any type of decor, and boho style baskets are great for refreshing the decor and can double as storage. Right now I am loving “belly baskets” and I recently picked up one for my summer decor refresh that I will be sharing in an upcoming post.

4. Decorate with FREE Fresh Summer Bouquets

Perhaps summer’s most delightful gifts are the abundance of fragrant flowers that bloom from May through September! Take advantage of free decor from nature and add beautiful bouquets of wildflowers or flowers you have cut from your own garden and place them in pretty glass vases, bottles, or vintage containers.

5. Use Sheers or Decorative Window Film In Place of  Curtains and Drapes

Summer is all about the sunshine, so let there be light! For a light and airy summer feel inside your home, try removing drapes, curtains, and blinds for the season to let the sunshine in!


I think for the past three years we have been meaning to do some DIY industrial pipe curtain rods in our past three homes. I love the look & we even had the pipes bought for all three homes as well. Seriously with two people who love DIY projects I have NO IDEA why we …



If privacy is an issue, consider using beautiful decorative films or custom vinyl window graphics.


Add texture to your window with window film.


I have been looking forever for an antique, salvaged lead glass or stained glass window for my music room, but since discovering these beautiful decorative stained glass decals I am loving the idea of the simplicity of using a decal instead of trying to find a way to mount an extremely heavy old window.
