5 picks for effortless summer decorating

It’s time to lighten your layers, organize casual entertaining, plan a daytrip to the beach or a seaside-holiday getaway… and at Garnet Hill, we like to begin by infusing the home and bed with airy fabrics, natural textures, bright colors, and original playful designs.

To welcome the season into your home, here are five instant updates that give any abode a sunny summer-cottage aesthetic.


1 | PRINTS OF TIDES: THE SUMMER SHEET COLLECTION

When we think summer, we think of the beach, and a sea of Mini-Print Percale Prints. This popular perennial bedding collection celebrates the season with everything from iconic sand dollars to cool navy sailboats printed on crisp 200 thread count cotton. We love to mix these sheets with bright solids, like our Fiesta Percale Bedding made from soft organic cotton.


2 | PIECE BY PIECE: DISTINCTIVE ARTISAN QUILTS

Crafted from 100% cotton, our colorful quilts are stitched by hand for added depth and dimension. Every design is a masterpiece, melding traditional quilting techniques with contemporary approaches to color, scale, and print. For summer, we love bright, retro-inspired prints mixed with splashes of white. For this look, check out the PJ-Stripe Pieced Quilt, Improv Pieced Quilt, and Hourglass Pieced Quilt.


3 | RAISING THE BAR ON CLASSIC STRIPED LINEN

Varying arrays of traditional stripes on breathable linen make a lasting impression on the summer bedding collection. Made from French flax that’s woven in Portugal, our linen bedding naturally regulates sleep temperature, so it’s an ideal choice for a seasonless bed. It’s offered in a mix of stripes to mix and match. We love how this bedding coordinates with solid-colored Relaxed-Linen Sheets and Relaxed-Linen Crochet-Hem Bedding.


4 | BRIGHT NAUTICAL DESIGNS, AHOY!

Set sail for bold colors and whimsical, original style with bedding and home decor from Hable Construction®. Created just for us by sisters Katharine and Susan Hable, these artistic designs have become a seasonal tradition for the Garnet Hill home collection. The summer collection includes: The Hable Oars Quilt, indoor-outdoor pillows, coir doormats, hooked wool rugs, and Hable’s signature Beads-patterned towels and indoor-outdoor rugs. Emma Quilt, Madeira Quilt.


5 | NATURAL ELEMENTS

Rustic-edge wooden beds, lamps that resemble sea glass, intricately woven baskets, and an easy-to-decorate-with jute rug, the summer Rugs & Decor assortment is filled with treasures that bring the splendor of nature indoors. For the entryway, we recommend a colorful coir doormat and a hand-crafted wreath.
