Summer Decorating in the Family Room

Once summer rolls around I like to lighten up my home decor and this year I’ve been in the mood to add color. I recently added some fun color to my front porch and like it so much better now. The next room to get some fresh summer decorating was my family room. Can you tell the main thing I changed in here?

Summer Decorating Ideas for the Family RoomIf you guessed the wall clock, you’re absolutely right!

It became the inspiration for the rest of the room changes.


Summer Decorating in the Family RoomI spied the large clock at Hobby Lobby … it was half price!

I thought the turquoise color would be perfect for summer.


Aqua Freshens a Family Room for SummerI moved the aqua summer blanket from the living room into the family room.


New Summer Pillows for Summer DecoratingThe floral pillows are new. I have the hardest time finding pillows I like.

Would you believe I found these at Walmart for just $13.99 each?


Summer Decorating with Aqua AccessoriesBefore I left the store a pair of aqua lamps caught my eye.

I’ve been looking for new lamps for this room for awhile now.

These were the perfect summer decorating solution for my family room.

Lavender in Painted French CrateThe lavender smells wonderful and I love the way it looks in this little crate.

I painted this French crate and added the graphic a couple years ago.

and the corner armoire cabinet has been painted and decoupaged.

It’s nice when you find an inspiration piece that sets everything in motion!

I’m still looking for a new sofa for this room though.

  7. Wow, your room looks great, Jennifer!!! I don’t have anything against Walmart — but it’s sort of hit or miss for me. Sometimes I find a lot of cool things, and other times… well, I just don’t. You really lucked out. Those pillows & lamps are perfect for your room!

  8. I love the burlap swags. Can you tell me how you made them, measurements etc. Is it just regular burlap, like you would find at Hobby Lobby? Beautiful home, love it.
