Summer design in this seasonal decor edit brings out the best in the mood of the hottest season. Airy textiles and light silhouettes invite breezes (whether visual or real) to accentuate and complement the warm weather. Handmade touches and soft shapes evoke the spontaneity and casual ease that is the epitome of summer. Take your friends on an al fresco dining adventure or picnic, or embrace a gentle summer evening and its long, romantic twilight to savor the best parts of the season. The days are long, but the season isn’t — enjoy everything it has to offer!

All of these qualities are celebrated in my fourth home decor edit, a collection of the best in new furniture, decor, and tableware. Showcase the heart of the season around you with updates scaled to accommodate small renewals from season to season. Shop the edit below, and let me know what might make it into your home this summer!
