See the season's hottest looks and find out to flaunt them at home.
At my house, it's not really summer without a decorative doormat. The cute patterns and cheeky text are a quintessential part of the season, helping to brighten our basic stoop and encourage sunny attitudes. (You think I'm kidding, but our neighbors can't help but laugh every time they see our punny welcome mat.)
So what's my secret? I know where to look — and since some things are too good not to share, I'm giving you the scoop. Keep scrolling to see 12 showstoppers that you can snag just in time for the dog days of summer.
Gotta love a little wishful thinking! Make your family and delivery drivers laugh out loud with this cheeky doormat that reads, "Pretend This Is My Beach House." To further the breezy beach vibes, layer the mat with a solid rug in cream or ivory. (Or teal, if you're feeling playful.)
Serve up some sweet, summertime nostalgia with a welcome mat that's reminiscent of old-school boardwalks and cabanas. If you have a bright yellow, pink, powder blue or mint green front door, this accent will call attention to the feature and make it pop from the curb. It'll also create the coolest contrast with matte black furniture.
If you love the nautical look but think that anchors and knotted rope are a little overdone, then steer your porch in a different direction with this doormat featuring a boat on the horizon. Thanks to its orange and navy hues, this accent will complement white and rattan furniture and cool down the sunniest outdoor spaces.
Make your summer at home feel like a permanent staycation with this doormat covered in little palm trees. The rich green leaves and coconut fibers combine for a tropical look that will easily transfer to your patio. You could further the aesthetic with a rattan hanging chair or fringe hammock.
Summer is all about simple pleasures, no? Make a statement on your front steps with a feminine doormat that doubles as a reminder to "Stop and Smell the Rosé." You can dress the accent up with a chic black-and-white rug or pair it with a tropical print to make your outdoor space feel a little more laid-back.
Looking for boho home decor ideas? Snag this braided number and start with your front steps. Crafted from knotted rope, this textured piece will lighten the look of your stoop and soften any metal surfaces. Pull in some hanging macrame planters, a tapestry or two and a fringe hammock, and you'll have the ultimate boho-chic oasis.
Fact: Everything's better with sprinkles. Delight family members of all ages with this adorable doormat, which calls to mind the "it" treat of summer. The playful print will add a whimsical touch to a sensible wooden door and help enliven otherwise neutral furniture.
Add the cutest, country touch to your porch with this doormat featuring a truck full of flowers. The pops of yellow, orange, green and blue are a fitting choice for mid to late summer and can easily be transitioned into fall with a few pumpkins. If you have a porch swing or a pair of rocking chairs, then this doormat will fit right in.
There's a very good chance that you'll want to cue Walking on Sunshine every time you see this cheerful doormat. Saturated orange and yellow suns completely transform the coir, creating a design that's simple yet sensational. Personally, I'd love to see it on a Southwestern-style patio.
Let everyone know that school's out and the kiddos are home with this hilarious doormat that reads, "Forget the Dog, Beware of the Kids." The scarlet text not only brings the beware message to life but also offers a pop of color that would pair well with black, white or navy decor.
Missing your favorite music festivals right about now? Bring the free-spirited fun of Bonnaroo and Coachella home with this paisley welcome mat from Pottery Barn. The pink, blue and green hues will brighten your doorstep and make you want to dance over this energetic print. Denim throw pillows or distressed furniture would really drive this look home.
In other words? Don't let the cold air out! Give your loved ones a good laugh with this not-so-subtle hint to close the door behind them. You can draw even more attention to the block text by layering the hand-painted coir over a boldly patterned rug; palm leaves or citrus fruit would both work wonders.
