Our agenda for the next three months takes place chiefly outside, slathering on sunscreen, slurping organic strawberry popsicles, and perfecting our rooftop playlist. But, eventually, we'll have go back inside — if only to grab more refreshments. It would be nice if our places looked semi-presentable and season-appropriate.

Hence, our big summer home guide, with everything new to trick out your place into a warm-weather wonderland. You probably don't need these charming seasonal wears, but with everything on this list ringing up for under $50, you'll definitely want them. Think: copper tumblers, rainbow planters, jungle napkins, and a ship kite (they'll be all the rage in summer skies). These are the items that'll make your place say, "laid-back vacation home." Click through to shop our favorites.
