9 Minimalist Summer Home Decorating Ideas

Summer home decorating is becoming just as popular as decorating for the holidays. The good news is that a few subtle touches of simple summer home decor may be all that you need to bring a little bit of summer fun to your home without the overwhelm.

If you love simplicity and minimalism you know that although the holidays are festive and fun, they can start to make your home feel a little crowded.

Spring and summer months are so intoxicating because they represent a clean fresh start and we do not want to lose that feeling with tons of summer home decorating.

The key idea is to find that perfect balance!

Luckily for us, there are now tons of super simple summer home decorating ideas that will bring the sunshine in without the headache.

Before we dive into the juicy inspirational ideas here are some important tips to consider before you get started.

01 | Remove and replace instead of cover-up and overcrowd. If you are bringing in some summer pillows store away your everyday ones until the season has passed. The same goes for additional decor added to your home in any way.

02 | Shoot for a theme. If you have lemons here and nautical anchors there it all might start to feel a little overwhelming. Pick a theme and stick to it! Plus this will help others see that this is a summer decoration not just an everyday decoration.

03 | Go minimalist. Instead of transforming every square inch of every room in your home try a few subtle changes that yield large results. Change the decor on the mantle or switch out the front door wreath to something seasonally appropriate.
