Summer Decor.

Hello everyone!  I hope you're ready for Summer, because today I have a guest post lined up for you from the lovely people over at Arcadian Lighting all about decor for the glorious season to come.  It's chock full of bead board, sisal, and the prettiest shades of blue you ever did see.  Enjoy!
At this time of year, who isn't dreaming of the long, relaxed, sun kissed days of summer? Since we have summer drifting through our own minds, we thought we'd shared some summer inspired interiors that can bring the feeling of summer to your house. Seaside, cottage and lakeside styles like those below can transform your room into a seasonal getaway.

This room is a catalog for summer ideas for your home. White wainscoting, crisp blue and white palette, natural jute or rope table lamps and chest, nautical accents and fun accessories like fish and beach pails can be mixed and matched for a summery feel. Be sure to just pick one or two so your space doesn't feel too thematic.

This bathroom has a summer inspired design with nautical and beachy blues against a crisp white backdrop. An all white bathroom such as this one can easily change with the seasons by switching out the accessories or towels.

White slipcovers on the furniture and colorful accents make this a happy, sunny room. Slipcover your existing furniture to make it feel more relaxed for summer and add oversized floor lamps for lots of light after nightfall.

We love the shell mirror over the sink paired with cute bathroom lights over it. The mirror is a subtle nod to beach combing when accompanied by other shell encrusted pieces.

If you have a porch or patio, expand your living space with casual furniture. Or bring this style indoors for your living room, family room or even bedroom.

Change out your accessories for the summer. Create a library of summer themed books in a guest room for your guests to enjoy.

Summer outside is a riot of color. Bring bright, cheery colors into your interiors with soft accessories like bed linens and pillows. Nature inspired art on the wall is a perfect finishing touch.

A neutral palette with whites and tans feels summery. Sheer white curtains make the room feel fresh. We like the natural fibers and textures and love the octopus pillow!
