Must Haves to Refresh Your Home

Jul 10 2014 - 12:29pm

This month, we're infusing modern beach-house style into our homes with simple silhouettes, bold colors, and hand-crafted details. Whether you're shopping for mid-Summer bargains or that special investment piece, you'll want in on these finds!

My latest lighting crushes can be summed up in a single phrase: minimal with a side of glamour. I can honestly picture this brass beauty working in any room.

Abstract art often gets a bad rap for being stark, but that's not always the case! Patricia Vargas, the owner Parima Creative Studio [1], is proving that modern art can be bright, affordable, and fun. My favorite piece is her Leoni print [2] ($46) — it's perfect for Summer.

I've imagined this chair [3] ($300) in my fantasy beach house for quite some time now, so imagine my surprise when I found it at Lowe's for a bargain of a price – score!

Don't get me wrong, I love a good wooden cheese board, but there's something so refreshing about this printed platter [4] ($54). It has a cool retro-vibe and makes going from chopping to serving a breeze.

Nothing adds a jolt of excitement to a room like a neon color, am I right? This bright kantha throw [5] ($40) brings the craftsmanship of a quilt without the folky pattern.

Sure, color and Summer entertaining go hand in hand, but I love the idea of an unexpected touch like Sarah Lavoine's hand-printed napkins [6] ($32). Their muted tones allow the food and flowers to be the main source of color, plus you'll be able to style these napkins all year long!

What looks like a burlap sack is actually a cement vase [7] ($4) in the prettiest shade of coral. Try potting it with succulents for a long-lasting focal point.
