Decorating a gathering spot like the living room or dining room for summer soirees is all about pairing pieces that cultivate a down-to-earth, charming scene. Leverage a fresh canvas print with summer notes by making it a room's main attraction. 

The embellished iridescent shell of a pacific oyster evokes light and airy feelings compared to displaying artwork from December graced with a heavy winter composition. The two best places to give your summer print the most exposure are on a wall behind the living room couch or above a cabinet of drawers in the dining room. 

Before hosting a tasty dinner party, take the gang on a home tour to the downstairs bar for light snacks and cocktails.

Going to a local watering hole isn't always that exciting. It can be expensive and smell like rotting wood and stale cigarette smoke from 1995. The crowd? Not always so entertaining. Why not bring the happiest of happy hours to your remodeled home bar? 

Open the glass sliding door to let in warm breezes, fire up the turntable with some tunes, and ensure you have your friend's drink recipes on hand. Simulate bar-like mood lighting with LED marquee wall signs featuring popular beverage names, logos, the king of rock, or an automobile brand. 

What to do about the kids? Happy hour isn't under 21 age-appropriate, but you can set up your teen's bedroom as an inviting hang out space with an open-door policy : )

The kids are off for the summer from school. Besides a few sporting activities and the always chaotic family vacation, your high-energy teens will probably be home more often. You've agreed that your home and their bedrooms can be a safe haven for keeping them out of trouble, especially on weekend evenings.

Decorating their space with pieces for summer, like a vintage-style surfboard plaque that leans or hangs on a wall, is a fun bond-building exercise for you and helps spark creativity. 

Sunroom with Table Top Decor

Not all days are bright and sunny. Summertime brings humidity and booming illuminating rainstorms. On rainy days like this, it's time to stay indoors, make a nice lunch, and watch movies in the sunroom, so the day doesn't feel so wasted and gloomy. 

Decorate this space with bright seasonal objects. Adding coastal wall art, seashells, and floral table top sculptures  gives the room effortless vacation vibes. However, when the clouds and rain clear, it's time to head back outside to soak in the sun. 

Outdoor Canvas Art in the Garden

The warm season is all about immersing yourself in nature's beauty. Why stay indoors when you can inhale glorious flowering scents while flipping through a gripping book in the garden, then go for a refreshing swim followed by a meal of grilled burgers with corn on the cobb?

Limiting the type of decor you place on your front porch or backyard alcove because of weather concerns is understandable. The sun, wind, and rain can fade and ruin most printed canvas artwork. Instead of denying your space artistic enhancements, outdoor canvas art decor gets specially treated to withstand the rain and sun and can hang on an outside wall without succumbing to the elements.

We hope your summer is filled with adventure, love, and unique decor. Find all your summer styling solutions at American Art Decor.
