It’s hard to believe that we’re already heading into summer! If you’re looking to spruce up your space with the new season, there are a couple of different things you can do. I personally love coastal style – think nautical, the beach, the ocean, etc. – since I grew up in New England and live here now, and I think that it’s the perfect inspiration for summer decoration. I recently went ahead and got some new items from Pier 1 that I am loving, so I’ll use those to show you some great summer decorating ideas.
Tip 1: Pillows
Pillow 1 | Pillow 2 – both on sale!
These are easy ways to update your space for the season and to insert a bit of fun into your house. Whether you put them on your bed or your couch, get them for the inside or the outside, these are great ways to add a little something to any space.
Tip 2: Statement piece (that’s still functional)
Octopus Bookends – on sale!
I am obsessed with these. They’re so fun and cute and they keep all my books standing upright! You bookworms know this struggle.
Tip 3: Dinnerware
Who doesn’t love fun dinnerware? What’s great about these is that they’re a great and easy way to bring the nautical style to your house. My favorite pieces here are the seashell coasters (because they’re so pretty) and the animal plates.
Tip 4: Decorative yet functional pieces
Not only are these mugs perfect for keeping your drink cold, but they also work as a decorative piece.
Everyone loves candles, and this one comes in a pretty jar. It smells like the ocean, which is the perfect scent for the summer.
Seeing how I’m almost 26, I probably shouldn’t still be excited about fun-shaped ice cubs, but I am. Whether you have kids or are young at heart like me, these trays are perfect for you.
Tip 5: Lights
Rope Lights – on sale!
Is there anything better than lights on your patio on a summer night? You can add a little extra oomf to your space with lights, and go even farther by getting fun ones like these rope ones.
