The summer season brings to mind beach days, fields of flowers, dips in the pool, and farmers’ markets with freshly picked produce. You can bring the laid back sense of summer into your home with small and simple changes in your décor. Changing out accent pieces like throw pillows, vases, and artwork can completely change the feel of your home. You can lighten the look of a room with the cool, refreshing colors of sea and sand, or brighten a space with pops of color inspired by the fruit and flowers of summer.
Whether your style leans more toward coastal cool or summer blossoms, there are simple DIY projects that will bring the essence of the season into your home décor.
