Simplicity is my new home decor trend. Discover how I created a simple summer dining room decor with lots of green. But not the kind you’re thinking!
Sometimes I think simplicity gets a bad rap. It can often be defined as plain or ordinary. But I like to look at simplicity as ‘freedom from complexity.” Giving your home a new seasonal look doesn’t have to require hours of shopping and lots of money. In fact, let me show you how easily I created my simple summer dining room decor with just a little rearranging and a quick trip outdoors!
That’s what today’s home tour is all about– simplicity. I’m so honored to join my friend, Krista from the Happy Housie and so many other talented bloggers for a summer edition of Seasonal Simplicity (be sure to check them all out below!!). If you are visiting from Just a Girl and Her Blog, welcome!
Almost everyday I look around my home and I’m finding stuff that we don’t need or use. And all this ‘extra stuff’ just steals my time and joy. I have to find ways to organize it, clean it, store it, etc. You get the idea. For me, the less stuff, the simpler life gets. So for my summer decor this year, I brought in lots of green and I cleaned. I know that rhymes, but it was really that easy. And you know what? I love the finished seasonal refresh!

Simple Summer Dining Room Decor
The dining table centerpiece is a shamrock plant I picked up recently at a local nursery. I have a smaller one in my kitchen and I just fell in love with it. I love the pop of green in a simple, but lovely white modern planter. It’s all the table needs.
I bought a couple of new pillows on a quick grocery run last week. I’m so drawn to black and white decor that I had to get them. Being on sale was a plus. But with their neutral decor, I also knew they would go with any room in our home. I placed one in each end chair and called this space decorated!
I love the simplicity of this simple summer dining room decor. It just feels clean and yet very summery to me.

Simple Summer Kitchen Decor
Since our kitchen is adjoining to the dining room, I thought I’d share a few photos of my simple summer updates to this room as well.
For summer, this area got a deep cleaning and a few new plants. I added a few small white flowering plants to my tiered tray along with some bright yellow lemons. They’re a nice pretty pop of color to the kitchen and they’ll make a nice addition to some of my summer cocktails too! 😉
By the sink, you can see my smaller shamrock plant that I got this spring. He’s doing so good right by the window. And I love his little grey and white cement planter. It just speaks to my neutral decor lovin’ heart!
I just love this herringbone rug. It’s been here since early spring too and I don’t think I’ll be moving anytime soon. Actually I want to get a bigger rug just like this for my living room!
Trays are my thing. I have them in almost every room of our home – as you can see in this post here. They are just a super simple way to organize items while looking snazzy at the same time! Just more proof that simplicity can be beautiful.
Oh, and that little fern buddy has been going strong since last year. I’m super proud of that fact because I have killed a ton of my plants in my time. (Just don’t tell him! 😉 )
