Summer is here, and for many it means vacations down at the shore and decorating your summer home to get ready for guests. There are a few key pieces that every vacation home needs to make family and friends feel welcome. Here are my favorite pieces for an updated take on beach style that is modern, colorful and cozy.
Above, Anthropolgie’s modular shag sofa is a comfortable place for guests to relax after a long day at the beach. And with the Berber rug design, it will add a bit of Moroccan style to an interior.
The Illusion End Table is a beautiful piece. It’s so modern with its lucite design, and the rope handles add an unexpected nautical feel.
Summer decor is all about stripes. Usually classic black and white or navy blue stripes are in, but this year embrace the unexpected and go for something colorful. This striped pillow from LemLem is just beautiful in shades of hot pink and tangerine.
Last year we stayed in a vacation home in Tahoe, and there was a hammock in the back yard. I practically lived in it! Go bold with a relaxing hammock in bright and cheerful colors. Your guests will never want to leave.
Outdoor chairs don’t have to be boring. Liven things up with cool vintage-style chairs in unique shapes, to bring interest to your back patio or front porch.
I love, love, love these driftwood hooks. They are perfect for a beach house. Hang up the colorful collection in an entryway. Guests can hang towels, swim suits and other beachwear on these vibrant hooks once they enter.
