Decorating For Summer...

We went to the beach over Memorial day weekend, and it was the perfect opportunity to find some decorative accessories for our house for the summer! A neutral tablecloth with the fun shells we brought home are laid back and relaxed. (please ignore the fact that the tablecloth is wrinkled. pretend it gives an even more relaxed feel.)



I love driftwood. The smooth, yet gnarly wood is beautiful. So I brought home this piece, and a larger piece.


Some brightly colored pillows on the sofa and chairs, and we're ready for summer! And yes, those pillows are from placemats. I can't help it, I'm addicted to placemat pillows!



Some ocean worn rocks, and who knows what else, keep the beachy feeling going...


Here's my bigger driftwood! Don't you love it! It will probably move all over the house before the summer is over...we may see it on the dining table, maybe the mantle, the possibilities are endless!

Love the summer decorations! The driftwood is amazing. The color on the large piece is really special- I've never seen one with such a white tone.
