Simple Spring-to-Summer Decorating Ideas

Spring to Summer Decorating Ideas

Check out these simple spring-to-summer decorating ideas to help you make the transition from one season to the next.

It’s time again for another fun Pinterest Challenge, hosted by Cindy from County Road 407! Today’s post is about transitioning from spring to summer decor, and is filled with so many great ideas from several of my blogging friends!

If you’re stopping by from My Family Thyme, welcome to The House on Silverado! I’m sure you loved Lynne’s neutral summer vignette as much as I did!

Spring Into Summer Inspiration

Our inspiration photo this month is special. It comes from Michelle at The Painted Hinge, one of my favorite blogs from way back before I was blogging myself.

Michelle was an amazing “farmhouse-style” blogger who was a true inspiration to me. Even though she passed away far too early, she’s still remembered through her gorgeous style and talent.

Just look at this lovely spring/summer display. Perfection.

My Simple Spring-to-Summer Decorating Ideas

I started with my upcycled Pottery Barn dresser as the base for my display. It’s got some of the same vibes as Michelle’s beautiful vintage buffet.

A display like this would also look great on a console table, an entryway table, a coffee table, or even your fireplace mantel.

One of the first things that jumped out at me from Michelle’s gorgeous display is that amazing library card catalog with plants in the open drawers. It looks so fresh and vibrant for the spring and summer months.

I don’t have anything quite as cool as the library drawers, but I did have these rustic office organizers from Target and decided they would work to create a similar look if I stacked them.

To finish the look, I gathered up several live plants and fresh flowers from around my home and patio. They add beautiful greenery with a couple of pops of bright colors, too.

I mixed in some small clay pots with some moss. The DIY vintage seed packets I made last year are tucked into a vintage flower frog.

I placed one of my plants into this Hearth and Hand vintage-inspired wire basket for a bit of visual interest.

Then, I added height to the display by layering a vintage book under one of the pots, and an old handmade step stool that belonged to my great-grandmother under another.

I love the vintage chalkboard behind Michelle’s display, but I think my farmhouse-style clock works pretty well as a focal point, too.

Next, I hope you’ll stop by Everyday Edits, to see Laura’s dresser decor ideas.

Happy Summer,

  1. What a beautiful seasonal display you’ve created! It looks so summery and inviting.

    Thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I’m featuring you this week!

  2. Love this Niky! I have been searching for a card catalog for years, I still comb auctions for one. You did an amazing job recreating this inspiration.

  3. Niky, love the dresser. It’s perfect for storage and all sorts of displays. Your big clock is stunning. Love how you combined different organizers to become one rustic display for your pretty flowers. Congrats on becoming a Gigi.

  4. What a clever way to create the look and feel of a spice chest with lots of little drawers. Love how you put your whole vignette together. Great interpretation of the inspiration pic.

  5. Niky, I love how you’ve interpreted this month’s challenge! I love that you used real plants (or they are really good faux!) in your pots. The files are wonderful as a mini card catalog. Lovely! Pinned as always. <3

    Many hugs,
    Barb 🙂

  6. Your console table looks amazing and you did such a fantastic recreation Michelle’s inspo pic and making it your own. I hope you keep it there for a long time. Mine will be able to stay for months because I used faker than fake greenery. LOL. Seeing yours would put a smile on my face. Thanks for joining in and sharing your style. pinned
