5 Easy Tips to Refresh Your Home for Summer

Do you switch up your home decor every season? Some people love to change their spaces every few months. But if you are looking for a few decor design tips to summer that wont break the bank, I have you covered.

I’ve rounded up 5 of my favorite easy decor tips for summer that will make your space looking fresh and new!


Change out your area rug for a brighter new look! If you love texture like I do, a jute or natural woven rug is perfect for the warmer months. I also love jute rugs because they go with everything! You don’t have to worry about your rug matching with your current furniture or decor.

Pillows and Throws

I have to admit I am a pillow hoarder. I have so many pillows in all shapes and sizes! Lighten up your pillows with neutral and light tones and put away the darker pillows for next fall. You can also easily swap out the pillow cover instead of buying an entire new pillow. Some of my favorite places to find pillows for summer are Kirklands, Homegoods and IKEA!

Do the same thing for throws. Swap out your furry cozy throws with blankets that are lighter in color. Or be daring and use a throw with a fun summer color such as light pink, or blue!

Tabletop Decor

In your living room change out your coffee or console table decor. You can add plants, candles, books and more to give it a fresh new look.

Flowers and Stems

Change out your winter and spring stems for summer flowers. This is a great way to add a small pop of color to your space. You can also add some fun fruit stems for the perfect summer touch. Some of my favorite summer stems and flowers are peach stems, hydrangeas, and lavender. Don’t be afraid to use fresh flowers in your home as well! I love to pick up a fresh bouquet at the local market during the summer. Not only do I love the extra pop of color, but I love the smell!
