I’ve mentioned before that during the summer months, my in-laws’ seasonal decorating aesthetic is all about simplicity. Our major design ingredient is the seashell — a versatile element obviously varying in size, which makes for perfect vignettes!
The hallway leading to the back of the house is lovely (especially with those windows I mentioned yesterday), and this table is one of my favorites. Simple tabletop decor always graces it, with a few nods to whatever current season we are experiencing.
See just the few little seashells that make this space summer-ready? I love the artwork, too — drawings by my sis-in-law from her college days. Every space in this house is the perfect mix of high-meets-low, creating a design that looks altogether luxury and high-end. Antiques and heirlooms mixed with HomeGoods finds.
You can never have enough sand on-hand this time of the year. Just as pinecones are to fall and eggs are to spring, sand (and seashells, of course!) are what summer decorating is all about. 🙂 Layer decor with texture, height, and scale for the best mix.
