From the smell of fresh cut grass and sunscreen to the taste of a fruity popsicle, summer has its own unique atmosphere. Embrace this in your house or apartment by mixing your everyday neutrals with bright, seasonal accessories.

Cute Kitchen Herb Garden

Nothing helps you celebrate the sunniest season like bringing a bit of the outdoors into your home. Herbs can brighten up a room and make it smell as fresh as a flower garden. But more importantly, they can spice up your summer meals. Get creative with what you use as containers--you can repurpose tea tins, coffee mugs, mason jars, or even just a bright set of bowls. If you don’t have much space in your kitchen, create a hanging herb garden or build shelves to hold your planters.

Artsy Accent Pillows

You might not want to buy a new area rug or armchair for every season. But if your living room or den features a lot of neutral shades with colorful accessories, consider changing out the smaller pieces seasonally. Accent pillows are a great place to start--they are affordable and easy to change out, and bright pillows can really impact the theme of the room.

Colorful Rugs

A brightly patterned, lightweight rug can be a charming summer accessory or a bold statement piece in a neutral room. Go with bright geometric patterns, earthy colors, or floral patterns to really emphasize the summer motif.

Pretty Place Settings

Nothing says summer like a cookout! And nothing says summer cookout like fun table decorations. Vibrant place settings give every party or intimate family dinner that extra touch of “wow.”

Breezy Bath Accessories

Bathrooms are one of the easiest places to bring summer decor into the mix, since they are smaller than the other rooms and usually pretty simple. Add a few flowers, change out the soap dispenser, or buy new decorative towels. All it takes are a few coordinating pieces to change this whole room.
