A Simple Way to Update Your Home for Spring and Summer
I know I’m not the only one who Spring leaves aching for a getaway, sunshine and bright colors. And since I can’t jump on a plane every other week for surf, sand and cocktails I wanted to infuse a little bit of that feeling into our home so we could it enjoy it daily. One of the easiest ways I’ve found to give vignettes in our home a very simple refresh is art (and pillows… but let’s stick to the art, we’ll touch on my pillow problem in a separate post).
You’ve seen my fear of commitment over on Instagram… constantly rearranging, restyling and incorporating new pieces of decor. I find a house that is always the same completely boring. I want to be excited to sit in a space because I love how it is looking at the moment. So, hanging pictures doesn’t happen very often. We do have a small gallery wall with some of my fave pieces, and that is it. Everything else needs to be a free spirit allowed to wander around our home as they please. That is why these two spaces I’m going to show you are perfect for updating each season, or let’s be honest, every time my mood changes.
For a long time our entry console was a BORE. I had a mirror hanging above it which meant I could really only rotate in new accessories. I ordered this framed print from Society6, which reminds me of our time in the desert. I’ve been layering other art with it and trying different accessories but I think this is what I’ve landed on, for now. I figure in a few months (um, maybe weeks) I can try something new. And the fact that I now know how easy it is to order these pretty prints framed? It won’t take me forever to hit buy as there isn’t any effort to frame it myself once it arrives. If you haven’t noticed, I have zero patience.
The second space sits in our living room. I LOVE changing this up even more often than the entry way. It’s smaller so it’s a bit easier, it’s in a space that we spend most of our time in after work, and it involves cocktails… what’s not to love? Our bar cart is always a display of the seasons. I throw fruit, seasonal flowers, our drink du jour and my current favorite art and/or calligraphy work on it.
I love a pop of color, but I’m not huge on overly colorful pieces. This print from Society6 had just the right amount of color for my summer inspired bar cart. I set this up just in time for a girl's night I hosted and it went perfectly with the ice bucket of sparkling wine and water. Bar carts don’t have to be used for the sole purpose of storing your liquor. Have fun with them for different occasions and think outside of the box in terms of decor!
What are your favorite ways to infuse the seasons into your home?
