Ah . . . summer’s finally here! Okay, that’s just wishful thinking, but the good news is that the Pottery Barn summer preview is finally here. Check out some of our favorite trends from this sneak peek at the summer collection.



Creating a successful room design isn’t just about color or balance — it’s also about texture. That’s why these rope-embellished pieces are such major favorites of ours. From top left, clockwise: The Seaglass Rope Bottle Stopper, the Abaca Woven Pendant Lamp, our Beachcomber Rope Pillar Candles and the Rope Knot Table Lamp.



Summer is seemingly synonymous with sea creatures, so it’s no surprise that fish, whales, lobsters, starfish and other ocean life is making its way into our textiles, tabletop and pillow designs. From top left, clockwise: the Octopus Serving Pedestal, the Seahorse Drink Dispenser Stand, the Pesce Melamine Appetizer Plate Set and the Atlantic Duvet Cover and Sham.



Another trend we are absolutely adoring is the lovely selection of striped textiles in the summer collection. From top left, clockwise: the Hermosa Stripe Napkin Set, the Hermosa Stripe Yarn Indoor/Outdoor Rug, the Hermosa Stripe Outdoor Pillow and the Hermosa Stripe Table Runner.

Do you have a favorite summer decorating trend? Shop our entire summer preview and prep for the upcoming season. No matter how much snow may be outside your window right now, we promise that the warmer seasons will arrive sooner than you think!
