Haven’t we all been waiting for summer for much much too long? Thankfully, it is FINALLY here. It doesn’t get much better than long days and warm nights. All the good things that come with this season can influence summer style. Whether it’s the colors and textures of nature, the laidback vibe of the beach (lake, cabin, etc.) or the excitement of family get-together’s and lively parties. Whatever it is for you, dial-up your decor this year and have some fun with it — summer looks best when its chic and joyful.
