Can you believe summer is here? This out of the ordinary year just keeps counting down, day by day.

I love that as the seasons change, a new box from Decocrated arrives at my front door, to help me create fresh looks in my house. It’s fun, mixing in pieces from previous boxes and my own decor, showcasing my unique style.

The Decocrated Summer Home

The Decocrated staff works year around, researching trends, watching HGTV and scrolling through Pinterest, curating the best in home decor so that their clients look like decorating pros. Subscription boxes ship out at the beginning of each season, offering fresh decor pieces to incorporate into any decorating style.

The summer collection is built around a palette of sunshine yellow and clear blue, with accent colors of gray, cream, black and gold. The decor in this box combines light natural wood and gold finishes with homey textiles.

The featured artists for summer are Kate Aurelia and Kasey Free. This duo met in college and combine their talents to create art inspired by nature and travels. They work with a mixture of techniques, from traditional paintings to collage to digital art.

Check out the fun unboxing video below if you want the surprise element before seeing how I used the pieces.

Shelf Top

I use the top shelf on this bookcase for seasonal decor. Except for Christmas, when the whole bookcase gets a makeover, I simply swap out a piece or two to reflect the new season.

I changed the runner on the shelf from a blue one to a red one. Leaving the framed print from the Decocrated spring box and my wooden inspire sign in place, I focused on the wood and metal tray, set on its side.

The fun trio of faux succulents nestle into a corner of the tray, sharing space with a cute print from Walmart. From the spring box as well, the gold canister holds another artificial succulent.

The vignette is playful and colorful and simple. It makes me smile!

Two Vignettes

I love that so far, each seasonal box contains pillow covers for standard 18″x18″ pillows. It’s so easy to switch the covers on the two pillows I own.

Initially I created a fresh summer vignette on the vintage wooden chair near my armoire, using a mix of items from THREE Decocrated boxes. The pillows, in their sunny yellow covers, rest nearby in a vintage army trunk that belonged to my grandfather.

The mirror from the summer box features a natural light wood frame and has a metal chain for hanging. I decided to stand it up instead and include it in a vignette.

The gold tray and canisters arrived in the spring box. I tucked another faux succulent in one canister and added tiny artificial lemons and a yellow flower to the shorter one. The table top sign from the winter box rests easily on the round tray.

I loved the overall look. However, one of the fun elements of decorating is playing with what you have and moving things around.

I moved the chair vignette to the entry way table, recreating the look atop a yellow checkered cloth. That’s where the vignette stayed. I love that the mirror reflects filtered sunlight coming in through the window across the room and the greenery there.

Dining Room Table

Finally, I shifted my attention to my round dining table. Confession. I never eat at the dining room table. Instead, I decorate it, creating seasonal vignettes. I prefer walking by the table and receiving joy from the decor there.

As soon as I saw the two tray stand in the summer box, I envisioned my tea pot and cups on it. How fun to create a tea themed vignette on the stand, adding a sugar and creamer set along with a matching bowl full of more lemons. A votive candle holder and a couple of yellow flowers complete the look.

That tray is so versatile. I’ll use if for real tea times or to hold healthy snacks. And I’ll certainly decorate it for each season. It makes a cute coffee center or a receptacle for a variety of collections. The possibilities are endless.

The gold planter from the summer box is versatile as well. Hang it on the wall and add real or artificial plants or note cards and pens or art supplies. I chose to set it on the table next to the tiered tray. Different faux succulents fill one side of the planter while the other end holds lemons.  A gold canister from the spring box holds another succulent.

Completing the vignette is the artist print from the summer box, tucked within a white frame with a cream and gold mat. The whole vignette rests atop the blue and white summer rug. I’m using it as a table runner.
