Summer decor 19.1

Today I’m sharing Summer decorating ideas I used in my home. I don’t buy many new items from year to year but I do move them around and use them in different ways.  One of the easiest ways to decorate for any season is to fill a bowl with things that remind you of that season.

Another one of my favorite items for Summer decorating is clear colored glass. Green and blue glass are my favorites. A sea star was added to one of the bottles.

I’m pretty sure a white elephant is perfect for any season.

These lanterns are usually used outside but I sat them on the cabinet in my entry this year. The fish bowl is filled with sea glass from California, Florida, and Hawaii.

This table in my living room isn’t too Summer-y but I love the white vase and the book has an ocean theme to it.

The windows in the living room are often kept empty but I also like adding something to them every once in a while.

I added a couple Summer dessert plates to the black frames. I like changing the frames out every season or holiday.

Decorating the bookcases is almost as much fun as decorating the mantel. Let’s take a closer look.

I bought the whale last year and am still in love with it, plus it holds up the books very well. The little blue bowl holds a few rocks from vacations.

I really like fresh flowers so I put some in a blue mason jar and added them to the book case. Everyone needs a horse head bookend, right? I added a picture I took in Hawaii and an abstract piece that was originally bought for the boys room. Maybe they’ll get it back at some point.

The double fish bowl is really for the kitchen but I love how unique  it is. The glass case is full of beach-y items.

My favorite picture of my kids and some of their cousins on the beach in Florida sits in a small wood and shell tray. More blue glass pieces and a rope ball are on the bottom shelf.

Here’s a link to my Sea Side Summer mantel if you missed it.

These are some great pieces! Maybe you could pick out some for me. :) The colored glass and the white elephant are my favorite!

Great ideas! I love that whale. As I was doing a little decorating a few weeks ago, I was wishing I had picked up some drift wood while living in Hawaii. Think it’s time to head towards the beaches & see if I can find something here in Washington.
