As I’m typing I’m finding it hard to believe that summer is upon us already. It seems just like yesterday I was eagerly waiting for my cherry blossoms to bloom. Summers in our home are very easy going. They’re all about time outside, late movie nights and fun little day trips. To be honest, not a lot of decorating goes on in our house and projects seem to slow down. The little bit of decorating that I do is very simple with no frills. I tend to gravitate towards light neutrals with pops or blue and green. Come on in and take a look at our no fuss summer kitchen tour!
I don’t do a ton of baking during the summer months. It gets pretty hot here in Georgia without running the stove all the time. I try to whip up a batch of homemade muffins and or pancakes on Sunday for us to munch on throughout the week. It makes mornings especially easy.
I swapped out my pastel spring pillow covers for these block print covers with bright blues and greens. A good deep cleaning and some decluttering goes a long way in the breakfast nook.

We planted two hydrangeas last year and since they’re doing so well and have more than doubled in size we planted two more this year. I can’t wait to have cut hydrangeas all summer long. I’ll keep ya posted on how the new bushes do. We also planted a butterfly bush and a couple gardenias. I love stepping out onto our patio and smelling the sweet gardenia blooms.
I always try to keep the counter tops clean and clutter free. I do like to keep fresh flowers around throughout the season though. Simple stock flowers are some of my favorite.
Im so glad you stopped by! I’d love to know if you decorate for summer and if so, what’s some of your favorite decor to incorporate?
I hope you’ll hope over to the homes of a few friends of mine. They’re sure to inspire!
