When decorating my family room for the summer months, I was on a mission to keep the fireplace decor simple. Hopefully, I’ve managed to pull that off by using a few simple, natural and organic elements.
With the arrival of summer and the temps and humidity on the rise, I want the decor inside my home to stay on the simple side. I want my home to feel light, fresh and welcoming, so no heavy or bulky decorations for me this time of year.
A hanging basket, overflowing with daisies, is a sure sign that summer has arrived at Worthing Court! A crockery vase is filled with unexpected spindles, instead of stick filler of some kind. A flat basket filled with draping greenery vine and a grapewood branch dressed with wooden beads and jute tassels fills out the rest of the mantel.
Down on the hearth, I’ve continued the simple and organic theme by using a basket to contain a large fern and my spikey wood orb. A tiny wall basket, attached to the brick with a removable hook helps to fill a spot that looked a little too empty.
This is just a little peek at one side of my summer family room. I hope you’ll come back on Monday for the full summer tour of my home!
