My Secret Home Decor Crushes

Enjoy this beautiful summer living room with simple touches of the outdoors added to a gorgeous vase for a pretty display on the coffee table. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to decorate for each season. Simply snip fresh greenery, or flowers from your yard for instant summer decor. You may also enjoy this DIY textured flower pot for a pop of color to your summer home decor.

There are so many lovely vintage patriotic decorating ideas in this summer home tour. Don’t you just love the bright red toolbox with hydrangeas? I was thrilled when I found a vintage toolbox while out thrifting. I scooped it up and made a beautiful faux succulent display that you can see HERE.

We all love a pretty wreath DIY and this patriotic wreath is simple to make and looks gorgeous in a vintage frame. You can change out the sash for each season, or leave it off for a year round wreath. Did you see the summer lemonade wreath I shared HERE? You can never go wrong with a wreath on your front door. Such a great way to greet friends and family.

Make a set of wood burned herb garden markers that will look just adorable in your outdoor garden, or in a kitchen herb garden. They really bring a unique touch to your garden. I loved using this same wood burning technique to make a BOHO Wedding Wreath you can see HERE.

Foodie Crush of the Week

Are you looking for an easy summer treat that only takes 30 minutes to make? This Oreo Cheesecake Pudding recipe is perfect! You can make it ahead of time and just top it with a cookie before serving. If you missed my Dr Pepper Chocolate Cupcake recipe from last week, that is another delicious summer dessert to try!
