Nowadays to avoid the crowds, visit local attractions and save some money, more and more people choose to stay at home for the summer holidays. You can also finally start some home projects you always wanted to do, then relax and enjoy warm evenings with family and friends.
To make your home feel even more like a holiday destination you can decorate with some items that will bring colors into your home and to make it even more cozy, add some natural materials. I find Etsy a great source to find some beautiful products from very talented people. Here is a selection of beautiful items at Etsy shops for this summer.
Awesome porcelain and ceramic vases, platers, candles, bowls and more… for a beautiful table decor.
Beautiful tiles and other quality items made with typical portuguese naural materials such as cork and sheepskin.

Fantastic linen products such as bed sheets, curtains, towels, padkins, runners etc… a very nice palette of colors.
9 – Art Et Brocante
I love recycled items when you dont just give it a new use but when you also add more esthetic to it. That’s why I like a lot the repaired plates with gold. It embellishes the product and it also becomes a piece of Art. In general very nice antique plates and other porcelain items.

Amazing Bamboo lights in japanese style. Very nice craft.
In addition to just purchasing a product that you will enjoy, buying from an online platform like Etsy gives a more human dimension to your purchase. You can get to know the person who created your product, it’s more personal and offers even more value to what you will be owning over the years to come. I have never been disappointed and always enjoyed the interaction with some very creative people.
