You guys, we made it! The 1st official day of summer is here at last!
To celebrate I thought I’d use the extra daylight to share my beach-y, summer decor. One of the things you may notice about our summer home decor is that many pieces were used on my summer mantel last summer.
I love re-using my favorite summertime decor pieces in a fresh way. Decorating is not always about having new things, but filling your house with things you love and finding a way to re-purpose them in your home each new season.
Here are my summer mantels from the past two summers:
Now take a close look at this summer’s mantel and notice how I re-used my Seven-Up box, mason jars and shells, but added a framed map and candle sticks.
I always want my mantel in the summer to feel like I went to the beach and, just like collecting seashells, collected items to group together.
Seashell balls or baseballs in a silver bowl on the coffee table take the summer-y feeling into the room. I found these shells at Home Goods!
And for the hubs, who is the biggest Texas Rangers fan I know, it’s just not summer without a little baseball.
Happy 1st day of Summer! Thanks for reading!
