Upgrade your hand soap and dish soaps with these summer fragrant options. Opt for soaps with coordinating bottles, too; it’s a touch of luxury that’s budget-friendly. A little wood scrub brush completes a sink vignette.

4. Stacks of Books

Add a cozy, homey touch to your kitchen and bedroom by styling them with a coffee table and recipe books.

5. Higher End Detergent


The sheets smell excellent with high-end detergent.

Wash your sheets with this scent to give them a wonderful smell and make them soft and comfortable. It’s a special treat and taps into another layer of home coziness for summer.

6. Glass Vessels



Looking for a simple, understated way to elevate your summer decor? Glass vessels are the perfect solution. Fill them with flowers, candles, or even cookies like I did here. You can also find acrylic pieces (like mine above) that reflect light as glass does for a polished look.

7. Summer Scented Candles


Summer fragrances with candles.


Candles are another budget-friendly idea when decorating your home this summer. Choose beachy, fruity, or floral options for summer. I am loving a candle warmer in place of lighting them. They last so much longer!

9. Bread Box

Bread boxes not only keep your bread fresh and add a rustic-chic touch to your kitchen decor. Choose from vintage-inspired options or modern designs to suit your style.

10. Decorative Pillows


Pillows are an easy and affordable way to update your bedroom decor. Choose from bold prints, fun patterns, or classic neutrals to create the perfect summer look.

11. Cozy Chunky Blankets


Chunky knit blankets are my favorite. They’re super cozy and comfy.

12. Lamps

Lamps and candles as ambient lighting.


Ambient lighting options will help you create the perfect summer vibe. I added this gorgeous one to our dresser; it was the perfect finishing touch.
