5 Beautiful Summer Home Decor Ideas

5 Beautiful Summer Home Decor Ideas

As we move into the summer, you may be spending more time in your outdoor space and looking for new accessories to refresh your garden. Or, if you’re hoping to elevate your interiors for the warmer days, these summer-ready decor ideas might be just what you’re looking for. From quick and easy transformations to lovely new home accents, let’s take a look at our top five beautiful summer home décor ideas.


1. Gallery Wall Alternatives

We know that a gallery wall is a sure-fire way to transform a blank wall into a stunning and interesting one. It’s easy to tailor the images to your aesthetic, with options ranging from vibrant prints to smooth and subtle patterns to family photos. However, selecting appropriate frames and fitting them to the wall can be a little time-consuming. Plus, if you love to switch out your displays seasonally or want to replace a picture with a fresh print, our Oak Picture Shelves make it even easier to tailor your gallery wall to your taste. Perhaps over the summer, light floral prints suit your preferences, and as autumn and winter nights call for another layer of cosiness, you prefer a snowy scene; adding these oak picture shelves to your interior creates a wonderful display that you can change regularly. 

With quick and easy installation, you’ll add a stylish touch to your home in no time! If you’d like your display to add some functionality to your space too, these picture shelves come equipped with handy pegs.


2. Stylish Plant Storage

Here’s some perfect summer décor inspiration for green thumbs! If you’ve been on the lookout for a neat home for your plants, this large wall planter is a fun way to showcase your greenery, liven up a dull wall, and create a delightful display. This black wall planter is an absolute favourite of ours! Give your plants a home of their own in our house-shaped wooden wall planter. With two shelves, there's plenty of space for all your favourite smaller plant pots. Whether it’s for a herb garden, a bee-friendly flower garden, or a space for succulents, your plants will feel right at home!

If a smaller option is more what you need, this large steel plant trough is perfect. Whether you display plants like lavender for a bee-friendly display or use it as an ice bucket for garden parties, it will look fantastic on your garden table. Our steel trough is essential for your garden this summer!


3. Solid Wood Shelving

For walls that just need 'something,' whether you would love a decorative focal point or a handy storage solution that doesn't take up any floor space, these oak floating shelves are perfect. Handmade from solid air-dried oak timber, they create a neutral and natural shelving scheme in your home. They're so versatile that they make a great home for accessories, whether you love statement pieces like this fabulous vase with an abstract line drawing or earthy hues such as this handcrafted planter with its Scandi-style muted pastel grey glaze. Not only ideal for accessorising, if you've chosen a kitchen wall, you can store cookbooks, utensils, and other kitchenware with ease. Just as useful in many different spots in your home, add them to a home office wall for more book storage or even your dining room for off-duty tableware like stylish candlesticks.

With 14 different lengths, three fine wax finish colours, as well as an unwaxed option, you can create the oak floating shelf that's perfect for you. Suitable for solid walls, all fixings are provided with pre-drilled holes in the back and full fitting instructions for easy installation!


4. Elevated Al-Fresco Dining

One of the hallmarks of summer that we all love and look forward to is al-fresco dining. If you’re looking for summer home décor ideas that combine practicality and style, choosing new tableware to elevate your outdoor dining experience is a wonderful idea. This ribbed jug in stunning natural green hues fits into the outdoor aesthetic beautifully. These natural stripe napkins, alongside a matching table runner, also make a beautiful option - sure to look stunning on your table top while embracing the neutral hues found in nature.

Is any outdoor dining area complete without a lovely lantern to extend ambience into a warm summer evening? We love this black metal lantern. As the sun sets, relax in a candlelit garden on a balmy summer evening, lit by these elegant metal lanterns!


5. Functional Summer Accessories

Despite the practicality of a functional home accessory, our beautiful door stops focus on style as well. If you haven’t yet picked out the perfect doorstop for your home, summer is the ideal time to do so! Keep hefty doors open all season long and enjoy the warm breeze that drifts throughout your home with a variety of styles to suit you. Keep the air light as you enjoy these months in your home.

This Granite Door Stop embraces natural materials and high-quality pieces, perfect for elevating Scandi-style interiors or adding an industrial touch. If you’re looking to add a bit of fun to your interiors, we offer a range of cute animal door stops that combine functionality with charm. Choose from a cheeky little Dachshund doorstop, ideal for dog lovers, or Rory the Rhino - a true gent, holding the door open for you!

By adding new home décor to your home this summer, you’re sure to feel refreshed. Whether you’re elevating your outdoor space or adding functional and fabulous touches to your interiors, our collection of home accessories, gardening essentials, and more offers the ideal pieces you need during the warmer months. Whether Rory the Rhino has caught your eye or you fancy upgrading an empty wall with our solid wood shelving featuring quick and easy installation, pick out the perfect pieces for your home this summer.
