Summer Hallway

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.
