🌻Late Summer Decor Ideas🌻

Updated: Aug 11, 2023


August... too early for pumpkins and wool blankets, but we can feel that fall is right around the corner. Easing our way into fall decor can be easy!

This month we are sharing 10 🌻"Late Summer Decor Ideas"🌻.

1.Decorate with Fruit.

Apples are in season, why not decorate with green apples instead of deep red fall toned apples. They add a fresh, summer feel leading into fall.

Lemons also add a splash of summer to any space! Randi K. Lunch Napkins here

2. Sunflowers

Fall is coming, sunflowers are in bloom!

Add some bright, yellow sunflowers that say fall is coming, but summer is still here!

Pair with white accessories.


3. Blue and Yellow Color Scheme

still says summer, bring in early fall yellow blooms! Come September, add some rust and orange blooms to your centerpiece!


4. Change your Pillows and Throws

Add some peaches and beige to your late summer space. When September arrives, add fall rust tones with accessories or flowers.

Pillow covers are a great way to change your space from summer to fall.

Oh I love hydrangeas! Bring in the shades of greens and blues that still celebrate our last month of summer!

Hydrangeas + fresh green apples = Late Summer Decor!

Candles are a great way to freshen your late summer decor!

My favorite summer scent is my coconut suntan lotion! I would love this candle to keep my summer vibes flowing all through August!

7. Add Brown Glass

A great way to ease into fall decor this last month of summer, is to bring in some brown glass. I love how these late summer hydrangeas compliment the brown glass bottles!


8. Buffalo Plaid

Buffalo plaid is definitely a fall go to, but paired with fresh greens, says late summer!

Late summer... we are still vacationing, swimming, camping and wearing our flip flops!

Flannel, pumpkins and wool are not on our radar. We can slowly transition to fall decor with hints of the upcoming season, while keeping our spaces summery, light and bright!

Happy August! Enjoy every minute!☀️
