Simple Summer Decorating Ideas For a Stylish Staycation

Angela von Detten

Summer is officially here and whether you have a beach house or a city apartment here are some summer decorating ideas that'll lighten the look of your home for warm-weather months and vacation vibes! We may not be able to jet off to some faraway waterfront locale, but we can still get in on the easy summertime living with the right decorating decisions. Ready to dress your home up for a summer-inspired staycation?

Commit to a Floral Motif.

​​​​​​​Bright colors, a mix of patterns and flowers everywhere- real, painted, and printed will give your interior an energizing, playful, and happy feel.

I love the idea of making a "flower room" in your home. You can have so much fun with your flower decor. Consider some floral wallpaper, floral furniture/pillows, floral paintings, carpet, and fresh potted flowers!

The room will be beautiful & blossoming! 

Hang Flowy Outdoor Curtains.

Decorative and functional, outdoor curtains for porches or patios will add elegance and charm to your space.

​​​​​​​Create some privacy, shade, and keep the mosquitoes away!

Install an Outdoor Shower.

This idea requires a bit more time and a budget- but rinsing off all the sand, salt, or sweat will feel so refreshing under the open sky. Also- the whole family will enjoy this!

Outdoor showers will give you a resort-like experience at your own's a great way to freshen up on a hot day...handy for getting the kids clean without mucking up the house...and is even a convenient dog cleaning spot!

It definitely makes an every day routine extra special! 

Accessorize With Bowls of Fresh Fruit.

Here is an easy & simple way you quickly transform an area! Decorating with a bowl of fruits can do wonders to make an entire room feel more bright and breezy.

​​​​​​​Try adding some oranges, green apples, or lemons in a bowl. This can go in the kitchen, dining table, living room, and even on a table in your yard. Using fruits as decorations will give your home that summery touch! 

Incorporate Shells.

Seashells are a unique way to give your home a beachy vibe. There are many ways to use them, whether you want something simple or more striking.

I'd recommend looking into some shell planters, a chandelier, or artwork. I also love the ideas of having a shell bathroom mirror, feature wall, or as a table centerpiece.
