New home collections are one of the many reasons that I love summer. Warmer weather, longer days, bright and breezy styles: there's just so much to savor. The Magnolia Summer home collection is no exception. We've enjoyed two decades of Joanna Gaines' beautiful and intentional design and this season, she's more than delivered.

I would like to order everything in her new range, but I also don't want to select products at random. With this in mind, I looked at what Joanna is adding to her home. I've dissected her Instagram pictures, listened to interviews, and read posts to cultivate the very best selection of Magnolia's newest summer décor. 

Whether you're planning picnics or dreaming of elevated al fresco dining, there's more than enough to get you excited. 

The Best of Magnolia Summer Home Collection

In the kitchen

I'm a firm believer that the kitchen is the most important room in the home. It's a place of community, creation, and celebration. Whether you're staying in, hosting, or celebrating, the party starts and ends in the kitchen. Magnolia's wholesome, quality pieces reflect and invest in the kitchen spirit.

It’s true that we eat with our eyes as well as our stomachs, so it would be remiss of me to exclude some of Magnolia’s delicate, summery, and organic serveware. A fest for the eyes from chopping boards to bowls, these versatile pieces make good decorations and double-up as functional accessories too. 

Pack-Up And Picnic

It’s not summertime without a picnic. Packing a hamper or coolbox and heading outside for a day in nature or an evening with friends is the quintessential summer evening. I spotted lots of outside dining shots on Joanna Gaines’ Instagram and on Magnolia’s too. Here are a few of the best features.

What better time to embrace everything outdoors than in the summer? I’ve noticed Joanna Gaines incorporating a lot more greenery and nature into her shots, so, in the spirit of the interior queen herself, these are some garden essentials to inspire you outside.

We've been following Joanna Gaines' and Magnolia's Instagram for the best storage tips this season and she has more than delivered. We've see Joanna announce Terracotta as this season's texture and she's given us the best tips for home storage.

Final Thoughts

A lighter, brighter season is here and it's time to create your own summer symphony. I've taken inspiration from Joanna Gaines herself and her beautiful tablescapes. After looking through her insta and taking the temperature on other summer trends, we're  loving gingham, terracotta, and natural textures this season. They're the perfect opportunities to invert expectations, bringing some of the outside indoor and vice versa.
