I wanted to move away from the coastal summer decor and move more toward the “sitting outside on your back porch and looking at your garden” decor. Fruits and veggies and pops of colors. That’s what I’m digging these days. (*pun intended*)

  1. I love all the colours on your mantle, it definitely looks like summer and the use of the old window. Anything with an old window is a winner in my books.

  2. I love your draperies. They compliment your rug so well. Your fireplace is very, very nice. I have always loved dental molding. I use birdhouses on my mantel for summer time and I have a decoration that I hang on the wall of the mantel that has tiny little gardening gloves, a packet of seeds, tiny clay pots and a trowel. So much fun to change the mantel for the seasons.

  3. I love absolutely everything about your mantel – and those watering cans!! Too cute! My mantel has looked the same since January when I gave it a season-neutral makeover… but I think I’m feeling ready to give it another makeover! Your hand-lettered lemonade sign looks awesome, too!

    1. Thanks so much, Emily! I’m one to leave my mantel for a while, too, and then come back with renewed energy to spruce it up. I’m sure your summer mantel looks fab!

  4. LOVE this mantel! I love switching up little moments of my decor to reflect the season or whatever I’m into a the moment. It totally freshens up a space and makes it feel inviting and new.

  5. Yellow is one of my favorite colors and I love how you have added it to this fun mantel! You’ve reminded me that I’ve always wanted to make a lemon wreath for our front door. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I don’t use yellow very much, but I knew it would be a perfect summer color to compliment my favorite pinks and turquoise. A lemon wreath would be so cute!! Come back and share it if you ever make it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Love it! I really like the bright and vibrant colors. It does make me want to sit back and relax with a tall cool glass of lemonade!
