Hey there friends! If you got a peek at my post yesterday, you can see that plants and summer are on my mind ;)… I sprinkled some summer throughout our family room and wanted to share it with you! I am joining Kristen from Ella Claire as well as some other friends who are doing the same!
Funnily enough, I was REALLY craving neutral as the season approaches. So instead of bringing color in I took it all out, haha! I switched out our cream rug for this seagrass one. I wanted something a little darker and warmer to anchor the space which is why I chose this one… And I think it did just the trick!
If you have been catching any of my thrifting adventures on IG or posts here, you will also know that I have been collecting some new accessories for the house. This $1.79 lamp was one of them. It brought a little depth to the room while keeping in line with the neutrals.
Texture lines different surfaces like this tray basket. And an easy to care for succulent plant that I got for Mother’s Day (it still needs a pot).
And if it isn’t obvious enough already, I sprinkled plants in every little corner I could… lol.
I kept the linens (pillows and throws) soft and light with stripes stealing the show.
I added a couple new additions for pillows, but didn’t go crazy. I grabbed some older ones from the tubs in my garage as well.
This spider plant was the perfect addition to the coffee table and the greenery from each o the live plants brings all the color that this room needed.
And those are some very simple but fun ways I changed things up for the summer season! I didn’t go spending too much money and made plants the highlight of the space.
Some may say neutral gets boring, but honestly it is my favorite look of all! I am drawn to this look and throughout the years it has been the one I love the most. And best of all, it is so easy to create! You just mix textures, patterns, tones all within the same color tone and you have it!
Don’t forget to visit my friends below as they share their pretty homes ready for summer.
