Have fun this summer using blues and greens in your decor!

Sweet summer time is finally here in Colorado and today I am excited to share some blue and green summer decorating ideas! I’m a kindergarten teacher and I usually take a week or so to decompress from the school year and then I start my summer decorating. Funny as it may sound decorating is therapeutic for me and something I look forward to at the end of the school year. This year I was once again drawn to blues and greens with an occasional pop of yellow. And guess what…I found some great pieces at one of my favorite shops; Rod Works!

Today I am thankful to be a part part of the Seasonal Simplicity Summer Series, hosted by Krista from The Happy Housie. All week long a fabulous group of 40 bloggers have been sharing their summer home tours. You can find them all at the bottom of my post. If you are coming from Tatertots and Jello, welcome! I just love Jen’s use of color on her porch!

Blue and Green Summer Decorating Ideas

Mixing the old with the new and adding touches of blue and green can really make your summer decorating come to life!

Welcome to our family room. We do a lot of living here and we love this space. And as you can see below, our sweet Wheaten Terrier pup Kona loves it too. This summer I was inspired by this huge gorgeous green seeds sign I discovered at Rod Works. Isn’t it fabulous? Once I saw it I knew instantly that it needed to replace my DIY book garland and go between my two favorite old shutters. From there I got to work…decorating. 😉

Comfortable summer decorating ideas that anyone can enjoy...even a sweet puppy.

If you know me you know I LOVE to mix the old with the new in every room of our house. Here in the family room we adore our new Pottery Barn sofa as well as the two beautiful french style chairs I found at a local consignment shop. The blue pillows with the fabulous tassels are from Rod Works as well as the basket full of greenery. (I’m telling you, you must visit this incredible store or shop with them on line!) I’m a girl who can never resist a wonderful shopping spot or decorating with a good basket!

Summer decorating can be so much fun when you find the colors you love. For me my heart belongs to blues and greens.

Ideas for a Summer Vignette

Creating a summer vignette can be so much fun when you mix old and new decor.

The wonderful white dresser below was a Facebook Marketplace find that I scored for $40 dollars and painted myself. It is so much fun to decorate and this summer vignette was a fun one to create! I started with the tulip crate, yellow tulips and blue and white Turkish towel all from Rod Works. Next, I added this darling little white stool I found just the other day while my sister and I were out scouring the flea markets. My tip is to grab items that have the colors you are looking for and play around with them until you are happy.

A few coastal touches for summer decorating ideas.

If you are needing some fun items to decorate with you can find Rod Works Colorado over on Instagram and find the shopping link in their bio!

It's all in the details. This summer I am all about the blues and the greens.

Blue and Green Summer Quilts

A basket with a quilt is an easy way to decorate with color for summer!

I also have a weakness for  pretty quilts.  I was somehow able to manage adding three different quilts into our family room. Each of the quilts have some blue and green in them and even some yellow! The basket below is above our fireplace and the other quilt is draped on our sofa.

Summer decorating ideas that anyone can do.
A colorful quilt is perfect summer decor when casually draped on your sofa.

The third quilt is blue and white and sitting on top of my FAVORITE boxwood green dresser. Isn’t this old metal canister with flowers just a show stopper? I love big pieces that tell a story and draw your eye in. I found this at Rod Works as well. You can see in the picture below a full view of our entire family room. Our kitchen is on the opposite side.
