I’m so thrilled to be included in the Summer Tour of Homes, along with 24 amazing DIY Bloggers! Gina Luker did a fabulous job of putting this all together! If you’ve arrived here via Brooke Ulrich’s lovely home, from All Things Thrifty then welcome! If not, make sure you go visit her now!!
I went with Coastal Style Decor in the Living Room. I swapped out some bright pink pillows for these taupe Ikat Pillows found at TJ Maxx. Love that place! (We’re getting a Homegoods soon, I might be in big trouble then!) Anyway, our living room is more monochromatic now and I like the soothing tones for the Summer months.To see how our living room looked previously, go Here.
I replaced the Horse Art that was here with this great looking Driftwood Heart, also found at TJ Maxx. I love that it adds a bit of texture to this space.
I placed a couple of rope lantern jars on the coffee table along with a vintage Seashell.
This concrete urn got a few Seashells as well, Pink Conch mostly and a Starfish. Here’s a tip, if you scour antique malls for these lovely shells, you can often find them much more cheaply than the new ones. Yard sales are a great place to look too!
The chocolate brown walls in the Dining Room, don’t exactly scream out Summer. But I do love them anyway! I went with a Daisy theme in this room.
My grandmothers Limoges china was my inspiration for the theme. They have gorgeous hand painted Daisies on them, and gold along the edges.
I even Daisied up my chandelier! That was my husband’s idea, if you don’t like it, blame him! I do think it’s cute though and Mr. Fairy is quite pleased with himself!
I added a little Geometric green and gold pillow to one of the armchairs.
I didn’t change the Family Room a lot. I just added some greenery here and there. I did change out the candleholders on the mantel, these Frenchy gray ones are a bit more Summery looking than the chunky black ones that normally live there. I added a couple of Moss Balls to brighten things up too.
I added some bright green linen pillows to the sofa, they have a jute edge, which gives them a little extra texture. It’s amazing how much a simple thing like changing out your pillows, can really change the look of a room!
Previously I had a few antique books on this wicker basket, I swapped them out for these Succulents (no they are not real!) on top of a Tree Slice and topped them with a gigantic cloche that I picked up at a local Antiques mall last year.
Here’s a little Zen vignette! A Buddha statue that I picked up a yard sale for just a few dollars, a wicker tray, an Antique Majolica plate and some assorted green garden style accessories. An eclectic mix for sure, I think it looks nice with our Antique Chestnut Wardrobe/TV Cabinet!
I added a few of my favorite Antique Books to the mix, both are Natural History books, one about Birds and one about Leaves.
If these photos look familiar, I apologize, I cheated in the kitchen and used some old photos!
