The 7 Home Items Our Editors Can't Live Without This Month
It's officially Summer. All. Month. Long. And that's reason to decorate! After all, the long days mean you'll be spending more waking hours enjoying your abode, so show it some love by finally tackling that sad, empty wall, sprucing up your tabletop, or making your backyard a little more inviting. Here are the July decor pieces our editors can't get enough of.
Summery Gallery Wall
"Summer has us wanting to spruce up more than our outdoor spaces. And what easier way to update a blank wall than with a gallery of beachy prints thoughtfully preselected in complementary shades of aqua and poppy? We love that the Sail the Ocean Blue Gallery Wall Prints ($693) include six gorgeous pieces of art AND the frames! All that's left to do is mount them on the wall and admire." — Maggie Winterfeldt, editor, Home
Hand-Painted Cocktail Shaker
"Cocktail shakers are traditionally cold and masculine, so when we saw this vintage-inspired take ($45), we were completely smitten. The stainless steel stunner features hand-painted blossoms and an abundance of charm . . . perfect for mixing drinks al fresco at your next Summer dinner party." — MW
Personalized Beverage Tub
"Any backyard entertainer will tell you that a galvanized, rust-proof steel beverage tub is essential. It looks sharp and keeps your drinks cold. We love that this beverage tub ($35) not only holds up to 24 beer bottles but can also be personalized with up to 16 characters and a year. It's sure to be a barbecue staple for decades to come." — MW
"Long days, warm weather, and guests galore mean even more reason to invest in tabletop decor. Whether enjoying a glass of wine with a pal at sunset or hosting a dinner party, these gorgeous jadeite glass candlesticks ($60 for set of two) will endow your home with the throwback style you've been craving. We love how dramatic the jade looks next to a black or boldly colored candle." — MW
"Sipping my summery concoctions through these festive Meri Meri Blue and White Party Straws ($6) has been adding the perfect final touch to my outdoor festivities. My guests love the Instagram-worthy look it gives their drinks." — Lisa Sugar, President

A Festive Pouch
"My waterside essentials have been staying dry in this splash-proof Aloha Collection Mid-Size Ocean Coco Palms Pouch ($36). The print inspires me to get on island time and has been protecting all of my warm-weather snacks and accessories. In a pinch, I've thrown everything from dirty gym clothes to a wet suit in this zip pouch." – LS

A Juicy Read
"There's nothing better than a juicy beach read, and Taylor Jenkins Reid's latest novel, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo ($26), is full of intrigue, emotional twists, and Hollywood glamour. I easily get lost in while soaking up the rays." – LS
