Summer entertaining means keeping things simple. Re-think your home décor and get inspired by bright sunny floral prints. Accent with a mix of bright and unexpected colors, summery stripes and botanical prints that are sure to instantly lift a room’s mood.

Interject bright, summery colors in your home with freshly picked flowers. To make the biggest impact, stick to arrangements featuring warm colors — such as bold oranges, radiant yellows, or vibrant pinks — and save rich reds and deep purples for other seasons. Small clusters of bright color look cheery and create an undeniable summertime vibe.

Consider purchasing accent dishes to add lovely splashes of color and pattern to your next dinner party. Add colorful glassware and pretty serving trays and flower votive displays. Walls can be brightened with colorful art pieces.

Summer Bedding

Summer Home

Designer Summer Thornton went all out for a family getaway north of Naples, Florida. “I do equate happiness with color,” she confesses, but her complex palettes always start with a suprisingly simple recipe: “First I ask myself, What will be our main contrast color? Here it’s indigo, but in another house, it may be raisin or even black.”

White Summer Bedroom

“I like the serenity of pure white linens and very soft, muted colors,” designer Brooke Davenport says of the master bedroom in her Los Angeles house. The linens are SFERRA.

Painter Jen Garrido creates dynamic, abstract motifs based on natural forms around her San Francisco home. Her compositions play with perspective – a flattened shape here, added depth there – and draw the eye in with their rich colors and contrast.[Shop Morning Bouquet Tray]

Beaded Jute Hammock

This beaded hammock was born when Anthropologie buyers encountered two workshops side by side, one crafting jute hammocks and the other creating beads for jewelry. They were inspired to combine the two arts, resulting in a bedecked jute lounger, perfect for your living room or patio.[Shop Beaded Jute Hammock]

TerrainTerrain is inspired by the idea of merging garden and home to create an experience for the senses, with a curated assortment of plants for all seasons.

Farmgirl Flowers Fresh Cut

Designed exclusively for terrain in collaboration with Farmgirl Flowers, this burlap-wrapped bouquet beautifies the spring home or makes a stunning, seasonal gift. In a palette of soft pastels and vivid greens, each 20 or 35-stem bouquet is made with freshly-cut blooms, sourced from select American growers and wrapped in an upcycled coffee bag. Because Farmgirl chooses only the best flowers in season, the bouquet styles will change slightly each week, but you can always expect an abundant collection of incredibly fresh blooms.[Shop Farmgirl Flowers]

Woodland Arbor Fire Pit

Hand-crafted from solid iron, this feminine fire pit is crowned with a crossed pair of leafy branches. The heavy-gauge metal responds to the elements by developing a reactive patina or rust as a protective barrier, self-sealing over time to beautifully preserve its integrity.[Shop Woodland Arbor Fire Kit]

Painted Metal Bistro Chairs

The perfect piece for outdoor entertaining, this café style chair collapses for easy storage and transport, and comes in a rainbow of complementary hues that are perfect for mixing and matching. Topped with UV-resistant paint, the colors will remain bright and vibrant for years in the garden.[Shop Painted Metal Bistro Chairs]

Stargazer Chandelier

This Garden Chandelier Hook pairs up with a simple wreath of moss to become the season’s best garden party accent. Rest the moss wreath in the hook, then let a strand of Stargazer Cascade Falls illuminate the display from the top of the hook. Fresh cut vines and the colorful Pressed Metal Flower Garland complete the look.[Shop Stargazer Chandelier]
