Savoring Summer Home Decor……

As the More is More Mom®, I’m all about……more savoring the summer! While autumn may be my most absolute favorite time of year, I certainly appreciate the beauty of summer. Summer is lazy days, cocktails on the deck, basking in the sun, listening to music and bare feet in the cool grass. Who wouldn’t want to make summer last just one more day? Even thought the weather is bound to change any time now, we can still evoke those warm weather feelings in our homes.

It’s the little things that give us the most pleasure; beautiful scents, gorgeous flowers, vibrant color. Why not help summer linger a little longer with a few great accessories and vignettes?

Texture is one of my favorite ways to tell a story. A woven tray satisfies both my tactile obsession and my fondness for organization! Gathering like items in a tray creates drama and impact.


Fill your tray with pots of greens for luscious beauty.


Orchids are simply lovely, but in a large grouping they are powerful and striking.


Soft, flickering candle light certainly sets the mood!


I’m always in favor of going big or going home, which is why I am a huge fan of the boxwood sphere. They are sooooo elegant and make quite the statement. I also love that they are a gorgeous staple to any home for any season.


Good lighting is always in style! A lantern may evoke the feeling of sitting on the porch in the summertime, but it’s a beautiful addition to both landscapes and interiors.


Why not bring the beauty of the garden into your home? Floral arrangements are always a treat, but a sumptuously framed oil painting is good too. Enjoy it all year long!


Summer easily lingers into fall when you set a gorgeous table for the sheer purpose of enjoying amazing meals. I always think produce is just as lovely as a floral arrangement. Apothecary jars full of colorful apples remind us of summers bounty.


The little whimsical details always make me smile. A cheerful bird feeder, like this one with charming and delightful owls, is perfect perched in the backyard.

While the warm weather may be fleeting, the happy feelings of summer can persist long into autumn!

More summer memories, more inspired home décor, more accessories, more beautiful home décor…..
