Decorating for the seasons doesn’t have to be complicated. Simple touches can make a home feel fresh and ready for summer. Here’s how I’ve used simple decorating for summer in our home!
Today is part two of our summer home tour and I’m thrilled to be sharing along side a few more of my talented friends. Our sweet host Marty from A Stroll Thru Life has put together a great group of bloggers for ya. If you’re coming over from Jenny’s at Clean and Scentsible, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I wanted to share our summer dining room and bedroom. Both are decorating simply and keep in line with our simple style this time of the year.
I love using blues and greens in our home, especially in the summer months. I also like to move things around our home. You can get such a fresh look by using things you already have in a new way. I moved our green and white check pillow from our breakfast nook into the dining room as well as some cheery paper whites that were in my office.
The buffet is also decorated very simply and ready for summer with some classic topiaries.
Our master bedroom is one of my favorite rooms in our house. It’s always been a retreat for us. I recently received a beautiful blue linen duvet with white pompom trim from Magic Linen and I’m head over hills. It’s the perfect look and feel for summer. They have so many beautiful bedding options!
In the summer months I like to keep our bedding and pillows light. The soft colors make the room feel brighter and yet cozy. I kept the same beige and white check pillows I used in my spring tour. I love decor that can be used for multiple seasons. It makes things easy and budget-friendly!
Peonies are blooming here currently and although they have a very short blooming season they’re one of my favorites. They smell absolutely heavenly!
Summer is a laid back season for us and I wanted our home to reflect that. I try to keep things fuss-free and simple. We’re already enjoying the season so much. I’m so glad I could take you through a tour of our home. I hope that it inspires you this summer. Be sure to hop over to 11 Magnolia Lane for more summer inspiration! Christy and Amy both have such beautiful homes. I just know you’re going to love them as much as I do. Have a lovely summer, friends and happy decorating!

Everything is so pretty! I love blues and greens too. Your bed linens are beautiful – I keep wanting to switch to linen.
As usual, your home looks like something out of a magazine, Amanda. Beautiful work! It is always a pleasure touring with you, girl.
