4 Summer Theme Ideas to Consider Trying

Summer Nautical Theme

The best part about decorating with a nautical theme is even if you don’t live close to the beach, you can bring that beachside feel to you. If you want to simply bring the nautical colors out in a particular space, go for reds, whites, and blues. Stripes mixed with solid colors are also a hit with this style.

Decor speaking, buoys, life preservers, anchors, and boats are all ideal to use for decorating a space. For bedrooms, you can easily bring the nautical theme to life with an anchor-themed blanket, a DIY life-preserver wreath, matching colored curtains, and a toy ship for the nightstand.

Adding this theme to any other space can be just as easy. Consider big wall pieces for large spaces, nautical-themed throw pillows for the couch, and jars filled with sand and seashells for a table centerpiece.

Sunflower Summer Theme

Sunflowers say all things summer and it’s the perfect way to brighten up any space. Decorating with a sunflower theme is also easy to incorporate all over your home. Starting with the front door, adding a sunflower-packed wreath will welcome you, your family, and guests with a bright floral feel.

Sunflowers also make a great tablescape and there are a number of ideas to make this happen. For starters, a glass vase filled with faux sunflowers is one of the most simple ways to decorate the center of a table. If you want something more elaborate, use an old watering can or tin bucket and fill it with sunflowers. You can also create a circular sunflower centerpiece and place a candle (or lighthouse) in the middle.

Sunflower colors are also easy to bring out in throw blankets, pillows, and wall decor. Yellow, white, green, and brown are all colors that can easily be found in a variety of decor types.

Rustic Floral Summer Theme

Looking to add a rustic feel to a space in your home but still keep a summertime look? This can easily be accomplished with wood-like decor mingled with herb-type flowers like eucalyptus and finishing touches of burlap.

Using real wood round cuts on a table with different sizes of mason jars can instantly add a rustic touch. Consider adding a burlap bow on one of the jars and placing faux flowers inside. Hydrangeas, baby’s breath, and even sticks from tree branches can help top off the whole centerpiece.

To decorate your front and/or back door(s), consider a wreath that is as close to nature as possible. Using a grapevine wreath, you can wrap a portion of it in burlap and decorate it with green garland, white wildflowers, or any other color flowers of your choice. 

Another decor piece that says all things rustic is a wooden box, which can be used for a number of things. Whether you use them as storage or as decor, they’ll easily add a rustic touch. Last but not least, adding thick rope to the scene can help. This can be accomplished by using rope baskets or wreaths.

Summer Fruit Decor Theme

There are several fruits of the summer season that can be used to decorate your home. They’ll not only add a unique touch but also bright colors. Lemons, grapefruit, watermelon, and oranges are often the fruits of the season and they also make great decor options. These are a great go-to if you like to have lots of summer parties.

Using a glass bowl filled with fruit and matching colored hand towels is one of the quickest ways to brighten up your kitchen space. The theme can be carried into the living room with bright colored pillows and wall decor with pictures of fruit. You’ll also be ready for any summer gatherings. All that will be needed is the food!
