5 Tips for Summer Decoration

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.
