Now that the kids are out of school (or close to it) and warmer temps are finally here to stay, it’s time to start getting the house ready for summer. In our house, I like to change out the decor for each season. Nothing too complicated. Just accents here and there.
If you’re ready to make your home feel more summery, here are a few simple ways you can do it.
Simple Summer Decorating Ideas
1. Summer table setting
Go patriotic and add a bit of red, white, and blue to the table for summer. These stonewashed placemats would also mix well with green or yellow.
2. Blue and White Accents
Blue and white is classic any time of the year, but especially in summer.
You can often find blue and white dishes and decor at thrift shops and yard sales for next to nothing. And ETSY is always a great resource for secondhand items dishes and pitchers. No standing in line or scavenger hunting required there.

3. Use Flowers and Plants Inside
Got a pretty bush blooming in your yard? Snip some branches and blooms and bring them inside to add instant charm. I love to decorate with flowers all year, but it’s especially nice in the summer.
Sunflowers and lavender bunches are such beautiful summer flowers and are wonderful home accents too. I got these sunflowers at the grocery store and simply trimmed them a little and then plopped them into a pretty white pitcher.
4. Spruce up outdoor spaces
5. Outdoor flowers and plants
Give your guests a summer welcome by adding lush ferns and colorful flowers at your entry.
Got 30 minutes? You can make a simple driftwood succulent planter. See how I made this one HERE.
