Summer is at our doorstep and in my previous post about the best summer barbecue recipes to try this year, I can never say it enough: I LOVE SUMMER! Yay!
I’ve already changed my wardrobe for the season and switched my coat for my summer dress and threw my boots in the closet and took my flip flops out.
Now, I have to got to celebrate this new season.
How do you ask? By uplifting the decor of my house.
I am in such a happy mood that I want my house to reflect the same summer joy to others around me.
If you are like me (and if you’re reading this, I believe you are), you will love those summer decor ideas I gathered, which will bring a refreshing change to you and your family.
These summer decor ideas share the same commonalities:
- They don’t take too much space in your storage,
- Easy to make so that any person, even not skilled at DIY, can make it too,
- Won’t break your bank account
- Also, multi-purpose so you can use it for either Spring, Fall, Winter or any other special occasions such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Okay then. Without further ado, let’s get creative!
#1 Lemon Centerpiece
I really love the way Shannon brightens up her house with bright white and yellow touch, alongside her main lemon-based theme.
We all know that one centerpiece like this on your dining table and the living room table would set the summer mood right away!
