Come summer, we’re all about the beach, tropics, and everything else that comes with. When it comes to decorating our homes, we look to the light and airy, and the bright and the colorful. Our intentions are led by filling our homes with the delicate pieces that emulate the free-spirited essence of the season. So, it’s only fitting that one the biggest trends of summer would entail woven accents inspired by the textures of a tropical escape. Here are a few ways to bring the look home.

The Butcher’s Daughter founder heather tierney just might have designed the summer bedroom of our dreams. Rattan takes over with a modern spin on classic 1960s style furnishings, coupled with vibrant palm prints and soothing textures, which result in a refreshing take on the throwback trend.

Outdoor entertaining wouldn’t be the same sans a fully-stocked bar cart – and presumably one that looks as style-focused as this versatile one. The delicate rattan comes paired with a woven detail of an inspired, summer-friendly palette, making it ideal for just about any decorative situation.

Who said wall art was a requirement for the dining room? Change things up by hanging an eclectic assortment of woven accents pieces along a streamlined shelf or on wall hooks. In this light-filled space, vintage rattan market bags deck the walls, imparting the space with a rustic detail.
Think of an accent seat as an essentially fool-proof method for incorporating the trend into just about any space. Whether your style skews more towards the minimalist or conversely the maximalist, a woven accent piece can provide a balancing element, while simultaneously implementing a much-needed textural note to the space.Tour the rest of this Australian retreat here.

Think love seat, sans the cushioned upholstery. Place a woven accent seat in the entry to impart the space with an airy detail that won’t cramp the space like its bulky counterpart.
Designer and stylist Rebecca de Ravenel fills her Los Angeles home with a soothing blue palette and a curated mix of decorative accessories. Among them, an enviable collection of woven market bags, which provide a breadth of texture and character to an otherwise minimalist entryway.

Wall art in the kitchen is hard to come by, but we’re all for switching things up with a set of woven wall chargers instead.

A vintage hammock decks the wall of LA’s The Now, earmarking the spot as one seriously Instagrammable moment. Look to vintage shops or flea markets to source woven pieces with an aged detail, and utilize it to impart a textured element to a minimalist decor scheme.

A round dining or kitchen table calls for a similarly shaped landing pad beneath. Think light, woven pieces composed of jute or sisal, to emulate the airiness of the season, bringing the outdoors in.

Not all woven accents come in the form of baskets and throws! Integrate a woven detail atop a decorative piece of furnishing or invest in a vintage piece with one built-in, much like the one pictured here.
Be it macrame or simply a DIY-ed hanging piece, impart the whitewashed space with a textural detail to offset the sterility that often comes with a monochromatic scheme.
