With all the extra entertaining I do in the summer, I like to make simple changes to brighten up my home to make it both fun and comfortable. Here are some easy summer updates you can make in your home in preparation for summer.
Bring the outdoors in simply by decorating with indoor plants. Plants are great as decor because they add height, color and life. Pick up some easy care plants like succulents or snake plants at your local nursery and place in pots in different places around your home.
If your home has a fireplace, try switching out the fire wood for candles. Enjoy flickering candlelight (instead of heat) all summer long.
Next time you are at your local farmer’s market grab a bunch of seasonal flowers. Peonies, carnations, or sunflowers will add some of that bright summer color to your home. I like to use a simple vase with fresh flowers all summer long as my dining table centerpiece.
Get inspired with the colors of summer by changing out your pillows. Put away your spring pastels and go for more color pop like these pillows from Home Thread. This summer, I love these beautiful blue tones inspired by the ocean. The fresh patterns and pop of color really bring the summer look to life.
What are your favorite summer home updates?
