I’m teaming up with Wayfair to bring you The Summer Edit, including a Q & A with me, home design inspiration and advice, and my product picks for the season. Home design is one of my favorite things to dive into each season and Summer time is definitely one of my favorites. 

The Wayfair Summer Edit Q & A with Kerry of Iced Tea & Top Knots

Wayfair: Which area of your home are you most focused on updating or sprucing up for the summer season and why?

Kerry: I am the most focused on fixing up my backyard and making it an oasis because I have a feeling that will be where my family and I spend most of our time on the beautiful summer nights. 

Wayfair: Which color palettes are speaking to you this season?

Kerry: I really love neutral colored furniture mixed with colored accents like orange and blue, which ties into my love of sports. 

Wayfair: Are there any home design trends that you are really loving right now?

Kerry: I am loving the trend of creating an oasis and place to hang right in your own home. 

Wayfair: Which activities are you most looking forward to this summer?

Kerry: I am looking forward to having amazing summer nights in my backyard with my family and friends while watching baseball. 

Kerry’s Wayfair Product Picks for Summer

For me when I am shopping for products for summer, I don’t like to change the big pieces out like couches and tables , but I love to change out the accents like rugs, pillows, lights and table decor (table runner, candles, flowers). Pieces I do love to change out that are on the larger side are items like bar carts and outdoor storage like spices up the space I am working on. Here are some of my favorite products picks from the bathroom sanctuary to awesome pieces for the outdoor oasis. 

Summer Highlight: Dreamy Vacation-Worthy Bathrooms

For me creating a sanctuary all throughout the home is one of the most important things I need especially in the summer when things seem extra hectic. That dreamy sanctuary for me starts with my bathroom, specifically my bathtub and vanity/sink. The reason for that is they are the spots that bring me the most zen from having a bubble bath with candles to doing my skincare and makeup routines at the vanity/sink area. Yes, I do sometimes sit on the counter with my feet in the sink like when I was a teeanger and it is the best!

Five cute outdoor decor ideas for summer that won’t break the bank!

Not everything has to break the bank especially when it comes to redoing your summer outdoor space. How to keep from doing that is changing out your accent pieces or picking out new ones like lights and/or fire pits. 

Here are my top 5 items to change out or get new that won’t break the bank: 

  1. Change out your outdoor rug for a bright, fun new one 
  2. Add outdoor string lights 
  3. Incorporate a fire pit table
  4. Get a fun outdoor game set up like cornhole
  5. Be sure to add a great, large umbrella
