Summer Home Decorating Trends

This past week my dear friend Marty of A Stroll Thru Life hosted an amazing summer home tour. Each and every home on the tour was full of lovely summer goodness and inspiration.

Here were a few summertime trends that caught my eye:  

Beautiful outdoor living spaces

You must go see Southern Hospitality’s garden of beautiful blue hydrangeas.

Duke Manor Farm has a new swimming pool and the surrounding outdoor spaces only enhance its beauty.

Random Summer Home Tour at Duke Manor Farm

Remodelando la Casa transformed an outdoor potting bench into a glorious summer serving station.

Cuckoo 4 Design has a wonderfully woodsy patio.

Cooling blue color palettes

Soft shades of indigo from Making Home Base are a perfect choice for summer.

A Stroll Thru Life included a soft seafoam in her front room that feels so elegant and lovely.

I love the navy and white French bistro chairs in the breakfast nook at Life Love Larson.

Life On Virginia Street has a wonderful collection of blue bottles that she has used throughout her home.

Sea glass beads on a large demijohn vase. Love this coastal style vignette that's perfect for a blue and white living room!

Soft shades of white for a light feel

Nesting With Grace paired happy summer brights in her lovely white kitchen.

Summer Home Decor in the Kitchen

Various tones and textures of white are used exclusively in the tour by Thrifty and Chic.

White and neutral bedroom decor and decorating ideas. White farmhouse cottage style master bedroom. Square board and batten bedroom

It’s happy white summertime bliss for this cute pup at 11 Magnolia Lane.

Dining room at the MCC House

Fun summertime touches

I absolutely adore the wee bathing beauty Pink Peppermint Design included into her tablescape.

Adding touches of jute and wicker provide a tropical touch of summer at Hymns & Verses.

Nothing says summer like the palm pillows and lush indoor plants Z Design At Home uses in her d├ęcor.

Love this darling bicycle accent filled with flowers shown at Refresh/Restyle.

Cutest half bike for the wall with peonies

There is no shortage of summer reading materials at Haneen’s Haven.

My very favorite summer home tour may just be from Simple Stylings who reminded us that focusing on summer fun, instead of perfection, is the best home accent of all.

All the tours were so amazing. So much inspiration.

I'm laying bed looking at these and loving them all. After moving four times in the last five years and living in rentals that leave some things to be desired, my home decor gets me down as I haven't been able to "be me". Reading your blog gives me insight into possibilities and hope I can get my mojo back. Ann

Seeing all the homes dressed for summer is such an inspiration for creating some summer fun at my house. Thanks for giving a recap of highlights for Marty's Summer Tour of Homes.
