5 Summer Decorating Ideas

  1. Life is Better at the Beach

Beach and Nautical decor is natural fit for our Hampton Roads area. Find subtle nautical decor to make your home feel more like a beach house at any gift or home store. Classic navy blue and white stripes are an easy choice, or add bowls of collected shells.

2. Minimize

Decluttering and minimizing can bring a light and airy feeling to a room. Open windows and curtains to get as much natural light into a space.  Add lamps if needed. Put away heavy blankets, fussy pillows or unnecessary decor items that can make the room feel dark or weighted down.

3. Party Perfect

Summer is the perfect time for outdoor entertaining.  Add strands of clear outdoor lights to set a merry mood. To ramp up your summer decorations, clear a small table to create an impromptu bar, and arrange bottles and glassware on a pretty serving tray. Incorporate fun seasonal elements such as cocktail napkins and paper umbrellas.

4. Color Splash

Consider buying accent dishes to add splashes of summertime color to your everyday meals.  Change out linens and accent pillows in a fun color for fresh feel.

5. Au Natural

Add organic appeal to your summer decor both inside and out.  Consider planting succulents in a large shell. Bring in cut flowers from the yard and put in vases throughout.  Pop your porch with added pots full of bright annuals.
