The Summer Trunk has just been released from Season in a Trunk. This summer I was inspired by starfish and the nautical color of navy. I love the playfulness of starfish and the feeling of casual living on the beach. If you can’t visit the beach this summer, you might as well bring it to you! I am all about outdoor living that is comfy and has some unique touches. The pieces have to be versatile to fit into my everyday life, so I designed something that can be used indoors, outdoors, on a covered porch, poolside, or anywhere you need a little summer time accent.
First up the inspiration behind the whole trunk, the starfish pillow. 18 inches of soft feather down, this pillow is 100% cotton and adds the touch of the beach indoors or on a covered porch. I put mine on my front porch to welcome my guests and immediately make them feel the causal vibe of summer.
I had to include some actual starfish, these are so fun! They hang great on a wall, nestled into your decor or placed on a tray. 3 8-10″ starfish come in each trunk.
I love how the starfish are packaged in netting, a great gift.

An outdoor pitcher is a must for summer time entertaining. This one is unique and is great quality. I like to fill mine up with orange infused water for hot summer days. Tie the fringed navy napkin around the handle of the pitcher for a nautical accent.
The metal serving tray is the most versatile piece in the summer trunk. Obviously it makes a great serving tray, but check out all my ideas on how else you can use the scallop-edged accent.
