4 – Brighten up with color
Add a splash of color to your home with fun posters, knickknacks, bowls, throw pillows and towels. You’ll have that room looking summery in no time!

5 – Daydream with an ocean theme
If you’re the kind of person who spends your days dreaming of the wild blue seas, then why not bring a nautical theme to your living room, bedroom, or bathroom! Look for wall and shelf décor made from driftwood, shell, coral, brass and nautical rope materials. Some fun items for a nautical touch are a wooden ship’s wheel, a miniature ship, a lighthouse lamp, or seashell lights.

6 – Maximize your porch
Add some wicker furniture to your balcony or porch as part of your summer decorating plan. It will make a nice break during the day where you can enjoy a snack outdoors and take in the fresh air.
