Summer Home Decorating Ideas

Summer is here and as a homeowner you might need a little something around the house to remind you! Whether inside or outside, here are a few decorating tips to make your Boston home just as ready for summer as you are.

One simple and easy way to bring some summer into your home is with pillows. Outdoor pillows and indoor pillows are small, yet big enough to make a difference. You could try some bright patterns and solid colors to liven up both the inside and outside of your home.

Another great addition to both the inside and outside of your home for summer is candles. You can add things to candles, make candles out of seashells, and even decorate a vase to put the candle in. Either way, this is a simple way you can put your own summer twist and style on the inside and outside of your home. 

When you think of a wreath you probably think of winter, cold, and snow, but that does not have to be the case! There are so many different ways to add summer flair to this traditional decoration piece. You can make a wreath out of flip-flops, large (or small) bright flowers, and even just simple fabric. Go ahead and put this modern twist on a traditional piece of décor and you’ll be reminded of summer every time you open your front door.

If you are ready to take on a slightly more challenging task, you won’t go wrong with an outdoor canopy. With this beautiful weather during the summer months, there is no better way to spend it then lounging under the shade of a canopy in your own backyard!

If you are looking to have a theme going on either outside your house or inside, the first theme you could consider is Red, White, & Blue. Of course we all know that the 4th of July is one of the best parts of summer, so why not celebrate all summer! You can also try a Nautical theme or Beach theme. With anchors, rope, stripes, and sailboats all over, the only other thing you might need is a lighthouse! While having sand and seashells all of your house, with a beach theme, might make you miss the beach more than normal, at least you’ll have your own little slice of summer right in your own Boston home.
