As the days get longer and the temperatures rise, it's the perfect time to refresh your living space. Your home should be a reflection of your style and personality. So, we've curated a delightful collection of summer decor pieces to help you create a vibrant ambiance that feels warm and inviting. Let's explore some of our favorite summer decor trends.
1. Tropical Touches
Nothing says summer like tropical vibes! The world is filled with tropical wonders to explore. Whether your ideal vacation is relaxing on a beach in Bali, exploring rainforests in Costa Rica, or taking a Caribbean cruise, you can bring your fantasy paradise back home. Spruce up your summer decor and then kick back with a piña colada.
Here are some design ideas for inspiration. Incorporate tropicals like lush greenery and botanical patterns into your home decor. Add potted indoor plants to your living room, bedroom, or dining area. Our handwoven baskets and animal planters will bring the outdoors in and add to the breezy island feel. Complement these with a lightweight throw and coastal-inspired artwork.
Pair this embroidered soft seagrass plant basket with a matching houseplant to bring the warm feel of the tropics into your home.
2. Beachy Boho Accents
Many of us dream of spending our days relaxing on a beach somewhere. Make that dream come to life by creating a Bohemian-inspired oasis right in your own home. Bright neutral color schemes are super trendy for summer decor, including whites and creams that lighten up your room. Our raffia placemats and coasters provide those neutral tones while adding a unique texture to your dining table. Housewares like our natural raffia napkin rings and acacia plates complete the look.
Layer your floors with natural fiber rugs, like a handwoven jute area rug from The Citizenry, for an instant update. Mix and match textured cushions in earthy tones to bring the whole look together. Finally, incorporate our hanging jellyfish planter in your living room or patio to add a touch of whimsy.

4. Fresh Flowers

The air is fragrant with summer flowers in full bloom. It’s a beautiful time of year to visit a botanical garden and hike among the wildflowers. Or visit your favorite florist for a selection of tropicals like orchids and birds of paradise.
Summer is also the perfect time to head to the farmer’s market or your own garden for fresh-cut, seasonal flowers to liven up your interior. Select vibrant hues to pop against your neutrals, or choose whites, creams, and pale pinks for an elegant look. Glass bud vases from Magnolia are a beautiful way to showcase a few stems. Or put together a large bouquet in a simple glass vase inside our natural octagon basket for a profusion of blooms. Whether you choose peonies, sunflowers, hydrangeas, or English roses, you’ll bring summer's bounty into your home.
5. Warm Wood Tones
Wooden accents aren’t just for cold winter nights by the fire. Warm woods complement bright neutrals to create a summery style. Look for acacia, bamboo, and other sustainably harvested tropicals.
Adding accent furnishings like this handcrafted, sustainable San Pedro bench from The Citizenry will add rich wood grains to your summer decor. Think beyond furniture by adding beautiful wood housewares to your next dinner party or a quiet night at home. Our handcrafted acacia dishes elevate the dining experience. The plates come in a variety of sizes so that you can have dishes for each course. You can also use the acacia cutting boards for meal prep. These pieces act as both functional dinnerware and beautiful summer decor.
