Bright & Happy Decor Ideas for Summer 2016

Summer is almost here! The sunny days and warmer temps have arrived, along with BBQ and pool season. In less than one month, it will officially be summertime! It’s time to get ready! By now you’re probably all set with your spring cleaning. Choose your theme or style and start planning to freshen up your home with bright, new home decor.

Add color accents like pillows, candle lanterns, frames, rugs, and table top decor. Open the windows, and let crisp, cool air in the home. Once you let in the fresh air and change your decorating theme, you’ll feel amazing… and you KNOW it. The changing of seasons is a beautiful thing. I love that we have the ability to refresh our home with every season, and summer is my favorite.  Below, you’ll see my picks for bright and fresh decor for Summer 2016.

Entertaining in the backyard is one of the best parts of summer. You’ve got Memorial Day & Independence Day BBQs, birthday parties, and many more reasons to enjoy the outdoors right at home. An attractive garden and a nice patio are key elements for hosting a great party. Bonus points if you’ve got a fire pit, outdoor kitchen, or pool. However, there’s one large accent we need to talk about, and that’s patio furniture.
