Sticking with a neutral color palette sure makes seasonal decorating easier. Since our house is neutral, I can easily jazz it up with seasonal colors. Usually, by summer, I've moved to summery blue and white. But since Easter, I've been stuck on a sunny yellow. The forsythia and cast iron bunnies are long gone so it was time to get a bit of summer inside. Turns out it's easy. In the entryway, I replaced forsythia with shells. To keep the yellow theme going, I just tucked my sunflower photo behind the tray. The basket corrals mail and keys.
A collection of glass balls reflects light.
On the living room mantel, starfish tucked into the spring set up. Still loving my yellow glassybaby.
I moved my IKEA trunk from my office to the living room, replacing an upholstered ottoman for the summer.
A piece of yellow burlap lines a tray.
More yellow pillows in the sunroom.
A sunny burlap liner in a tray. Super easy - just cut and fringe the edges. No sewing involved.
Bookcases are lined with books and picnic baskets (mostly collected from the Alameda Flea Market).
By fall, I just might be ready to move on to blue and white. In the meantime, the sun is shining both inside and out around here. Enjoy your summer!
