Summer decorating is so much fun — it’s a great excuse to update your decor. These activities can take you inside and out this season, and that means you’ll have plenty of spaces to decorate. The key to a summer makeover is light fabrics, bright colors, and even a touch of beach-inspired decor. You can update your home for the season with just a few accessories or go big and add a stunning outdoor dining set. Most decor can be stored away when it’s time for autumn decorating. That keeps your decor fresh when the season is back next year. Here are 10 of our favorite ideas for making the most of your summer at home:

Decorating Means Colorful Outdoor Entertaining

Summer

We love entertaining, especially when the party moves outside. Choose a comfortable outdoor seating set that encourages conversation and lingering. Bright outdoor pillows and throws for chilly summer nights are a must. If you’re creating a space that ties your indoor decor to the outdoors, choose accessories that fit into the colour palette you already have in your home.

Switch to a Summer Duvet Cover

A new duvet cover can makeover your bedroom in an instant. Look for light fabrics like linen and cotton for comfortable bedding even when the weather heats up. Beach-inspired patterns and colours (like blue and aqua) are perfect for summer decorating. Even if you aren’t embracing a full coastal theme in your home, you can add touches of beach style in any room when you work within your colour palette.

Get Fresh Style With Macramé and Crafty Summer Accessories

Maybe we’re just reminiscing about summer crafts, but macrame and handmade accessories feel like a perfect fit for the season. Mixing handcrafted decor in natural colors and materials with a boho or contemporary furnishings creates a relaxed summer style. Add softness to your bedroom or living room by replacing framed art with macrame and woven wall hangings. 

Turn Your Porch Into a Summer Party Space

When the weather warms up, we’ll look for any reason to be outdoors. If your home is short on space, turn an unused porch into a spot for entertaining or just relaxing. With the right furniture and accessories, your porch can give your small home an extra dining space in warmer months. Giving your front door a color makeover adds extra style to your porch and a decorating focal point for your new outdoor decor.

Brighten up Your Patio With an Indoor/Outdoor Rug

We love indoor/outdoor rugs for bringing color and pattern outside. Look for rugs with lots of summer colors, as they are the best focal point for your outdoor decorating plan. Your outdoor seating and cushions may be pretty neutral, so you can be creative when choosing your rug, pillows, and accessories. An easy and fun tip for choosing the best indoor/outdoor rug is to match a few colors from your summer-blooming flowers in the rug’s pattern.

Add Outdoor Lights for Entertaining Evenings

What fun is summer decorating without string lights? Look to an outdoor restaurant and winery spaces for inspiration on lighting your deck or patio. Think of string lights as ambiance, instead of task lighting, so that you can add just the right amount to create a magical space. There is a big selection of outdoor string lights available, including colorful and themed options, but classic white bulbs can fit into any decorating style.

Add a Summery Swag Light

Is there a dark corner in your home that could use a little extra light? Plug-in swag lighting is the no-commitment way to add a little illumination and a lot of style to any room. Swag lights are an easy way to create a reading corner or define an eating space in a small home. If your goal is to lighten up your home for summer, adding a swag light is a quick option. Choose an airy design that allows natural light to shine through even when it’s not on.
