Welcome to our Easy Summer Styling Blog Hop. We are thrilled to be joining a spectacular team of ladies for this tour. A big thank you to Kelly at The Tattered Pew for organizing this awesome group. We know you’ll be inspired by every one of their posts. If you have just come from Kelly’s post, a very special welcome. Isn’t her home gorgeous? We are excited to share our summer theme: pink decor.
Do you have fun with decorating? We hope the answer is yes. If not, ask yourself why not. Are you stuck in a rut? Are you afraid of trying new styles or colors? Jodie and I are here to tell you that there is nothing more liberating than expanding your decorating horizons and taking a few risks. It’s exciting and freeing. Your home can feel like a brand new space without too much effort. In this post we are talking about new ways to infuse pink into your decor. But you can apply these ideas to any color you choose. The main idea is to step outside your comfort zone and see what you can create. Less fear, more freedom equals more enjoyment. Come on in, the water’s just fine.

Let’s Start Decorating
Summer decorating is all about flowers. It’s the perfect way to literally bring your spaces to life. Jodie is obsessed (and it’s not an exaggeration). Summer is peony season, so we definitely like to take advantage. We add them everywhere because they truly make a huge impact. Enjoy lots of examples of how we love to decorate with flowers in our post Decorating For Spring Home Tour.
2. Pink Pillows
Variations of blush pillows look gorgeous and inviting. They mesh with almost any decor scheme, whether you are encorporating glam, farmhouse, modern, or classic styles. Pink can be glamorous and add feminine flair. Pink also contrasts beautifully with neutrals. Depending on your shade it can be a wow factor or a soft addition of color.
3. Play with Pink Paint
A coat of paint is an easy, inexpensive way to transform a space. Jodie brightened up her front porch with a touch of soft blush paint. You can do the same with a single accent wall or an entire room.
4. Mix it Up
Never shy away from mixing hues of the same color. Don’t feel limited to one shade of pink, or any color for that matter. Decor is all about taking risks, and when these risks pay off, that’s when the real magic happens. Play with different color combinations and see where it takes you. Have fun mixing and matching.

5. Recover Books with Pink Paper
Head on over to Michaels or your local craft store, pick up some solid cardstock, pretty floral scrapbooking paper, or a variety of materials: fabric, wrapping paper, or even a delicate pink ribbon. Cover a few of your coffee table books or regular books you own. Voila. Instant decor.
6. Pink Seasonal Wreaths
Add pink to a wall, mirror, or door with a seasonal wreath to encorporate a subtle touch of girlish charm to any space.
7. Small Decor Items
You can easily transform a room by adding small pops of color throughout the space. These don’t have to be expensive or big. We already mentioned books (which we LOVE to use) These small decor items can be anything from an elegant vase to an old fashioned clock. Think about adding a pink tray, rug, or even an inexpensive piece of art.
8. Pink Table Accents
Adding pink to a tablescape is such a fun, easy way to restyle a room. Jodie added a faux rose to top off her table settings. Glassware, napkins, tablecloth, chargers. Swapping out any of these items is a fresh way to work in color to your dining space. It’s a great way to create temporary changes that don’t cost too much. As the seasons change you can continue to evolve your home.
Think Pink. Think Fresh.
Never thought of yourself as a pink girl? Don’t count yourself out until you’ve tried it. With so many beautiful shades you’re sure to find one that suits your specific style. Adding a touch of femininity to your home will instantly bring the space to life. Like we said before, don’t be afraid to mix it up and take a leap of faith with your decor choices. Most importantly, never forget to have fun along the way. It’s never too late to think pink.
