5 Tips & Tricks To Decorate For Summer

5 tips & tricks on how to decorate your home for summer - Great tips on how to get your home summer ready!

Hi friends!!! Happy first day of summer! If you missed it on my Instagram or Facebook this past weekend, we are finally all moved out of our old house & now are full time at our new [very old] farm. We haven’t even started to unpack yet, but that can wait. We are excited to get settled in & slowly start to make this farm our homestead. Before we left our last house because it happened so suddenly, I had started to decorate for summer, & I have already added a few summer pieces to this house as well [because you know of course I’ve put things out even before we’ve painted] that are summer-y because I couldn’t help myself. So, when I was asked to join a lovely summer home tour by Nina Hendrick Design, Birch Lane, the wonderful Country Living Magazine, along with a bunch of other awesome bloggers, I thought since we are in the middle of our move, I would share 5 tips to decorate your home for summer. I hope these tips help you decorate your home for summer & that you enjoy seeing some photos from our home we just left this week & our new farmhouse we just moved in to…

-Add greenery

Whether you go faux or you get some real plants, adding greenery instantly gives summer vibes in a home. I like to mix faux & real greenery like in our upstairs living room at our last house I added real topiaries along with faux greenery from Ikea. Nothing says summer like some fresh flowers or greens!

-lighten up

Lighten up those rooms. If you have dark sofas, consider throwing some lighter slipcovers on them, or get some lighter & brighter pillow covers. Paint a dark piece of furniture that has been bugging you for a while, add some fresh bright curtains, & on & on. You don’t have to do all of these things of course, but it always feels more like summer in the house when things are lightened up. I painted our coffee table base in our downstairs living room & a large armoire in our entryway a lighter color & it really set the mood for the warmer season.

-Go patriotic

This is a very fun way to decorate for The Fourth Of July, but patriotic decor can be used throughout the whole summer. I purchased a few pieces from Birch Lane that can be used in patriotric decor & I’m a little obsessed. I’m ususally a neutral loving girl, so to find some pieces that were neutral, but still patriotic was amazing. I found this distressed burlap flag pillow [here] & this amazing grainsack poof [here]. I styled them each inside & outside at our new house to show you a few different ways you can use them. Of course patriotic decor can be used all year, but it really does give your home a summer vibe.

– Freshen up

Most of the time we think of  “spring cleaning”, but personally I do more cleaning going in to the summer season. Probably because of the spring in Michigan is unpredictable, but open those windows, shake those rugs out, get rid of the clutter, & you will be surprised at how fresh & summery your spaces will feel.

– Summer up all your spaces.

This may seem redundant, but there are so many ways to add summer to your spaces & it may be overwhelming. Here are some places to start: Add greenery to your coffee table, dining table, & entryway table centerpieces. If you want to go crazy, add some fresh flowers in vases in all of your rooms, honestly just that makes a room feel lighter, brighter, & more inviting. Add a summer wreath to your doors, lighten up your furniture, add a summer quote to your gallery walls or chalkboards, add pops of white & bright colors to your rooms where you can, & switch our your cozy textiles like throw blankets & pillows for thinner & & lighter fabrics. Add a potting bench or some flower pots to your outdoor spaces & freshen up your patios & porches just like the inside of your home. Just a few ways to make your home feel more like summer.

    So pretty Liz! Some things I just noticed even though I’ve seen the spaces before were the planked ceilings in one room and the beadboard ceilings in another! You move things around enough that it always looks fresh and I’m noticing the subtle touches with the pops of greenery. Congrats on the new house again… I’m obsessed with the sun room and those flag pillows.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks
    weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!
