Summer Scene

Hi, friends!  I hope you are having a nice Holiday week so far.  I wanted to share a little Summer vignette that I put together in our living room earlier this season.  I am going very minimal with decorations this Summer.  Usually I have vignettes all over the house, but I am finding myself taking a bit of a different approach with seasonal decorating these past several months.  Instead of anything being super theme-y, I’m embracing texture, fresh greenery, and creating yummy seasonal scents with my new essential oils and diffuser.  🙂

Our living room got a little pillow refresh — more on that another time!  😉

This IKEA buffet is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in our house.  It holds so much!  Starting in January, I went on a journey of purging and organizing our whole house and I just finished last week!  It took a lot of time but was so worth it.  Maybe I’ll post about some of our organization solutions sometime…  it’s nothing fancy.  😉  But this piece of furniture holds all of our decorative accents.  That’s it!  I worked really hard to get everything in a specific “category” in one place.

The lamps are so cute and were a Target find — I think they were less than $10 each but they’re not sold anymore.  The little bit of gold that is showing was actually chrome when I bought them, but since I don’t have any chrome in our living room, I just painted that part gold.  It’s kind of messy so don’t look too close – ha!  I figured done was better than perfect so I called it good.

But back to the Summer vignette…!

Don’t twinkle lights make everything prettier?  These are our Summer treasures.  The driftwood was a HomeGoods find many many years ago, and the brown-colored sand and bright white rocks are from Michael’s, also from long ago.

The stones and shells came from our trips to Oceanside.  🙂  I like to send Greyson looking for them and he finds the best ones!  We have been there twice and it is our most favorite place.  It’s so fun to have these treasures out on display this time of year.  They warm our heart!

We scooped up some sand last time we were there and took it home with us.  When I opened the container to pour it into this apothecary jar, it smelled just like the ocean.  Go figure.  😉  It was such a fun little memory trigger and it made me so happy.  I love how our sense of smell is so capable of doing that.

Do you decorate for Summer?  Are there any scents that remind you of this season?  Let me know in the comments!
