Our summer home is light and airy and English cottage inspired. Touches of blue and green are throughout to create a fresh yet cozy home. Let’s take a look at our summer home tour!
It’s hard to believe that we’re already sharing our summer home. It’s as though I blinked an eye and it went from spring to summer. When it comes to decorating for the different seasons I really like my decor to flow from one to the other pretty effortlessly. This is very much the case from spring to summer in our home. I love using shades of blue and green and light creams for both seasons, so I’m able to keep decorating simple. Simple is key during the summer homes because we love spending time outdoors and entertaining friends and family.
I’ve excited to be joining several friends for the Simplicity home tour hosted by my friend Krista from The Happy Housie! Today I’m going to give you guys a look into our summer living room, kitchen and breakfast nook and master bedroom. If you’re coming from my friend Laura’s beautiful tour at Inspiration For Moms, welcome!
Last week I shared my simple tips for creating a summer mantel with character. You can find those tips here.
I’ve kept our living room light and airy with pale blues and off-whites. I love blues year round but especially in the summer months.
I was so excited to finally have a home for some of our copper pots. I shared all about our simple and cheap tension rod pot rack on the blog recently. You can read all about that here.
Just as I’ve done in our living room, I’ve incorporated shades of blue into our kitchen and breakfast nook. I love the little pop of blue that the new cafe curtains I made add to the room.
Last year I found this antique painting for only $15 at an antique market. I loved it right away but wasn’t quite sure where I liked it best in our home. I finally settled on the wall behind my baking canisters. I think it adds so much color and character to the kitchen.
We’re keeping things simple and light in the breakfast nook. I love that this space becomes flooded with sunlight in the afternoons. It’s one of the happiest rooms in our home and my favorite place to sip coffee in the mornings. I’m loving the new cafe curtains on these windows as well. The blue and white tie into the vintage and antique dishes perfectly.
Our bedroom hasn’t really changed since this spring. However, shortly after a shot a few photos we removed our wall headboard and lamps and brought in a new upholstered headboard complete with a slipcover that I made for it. It’s not quite ready to share. I’m still on the hunt for the right lamps. I can’t wait to share it with you very soon!
Do you decorate your home for the summer season? If so, what colors do you gravitate towards? Changing up a space with a new season can be so refreshing and inspiring. I love that it always give our home new life!
Be sure to check out the next tours on our tour today. Cassie Bustamante’s home is next on our list. It’s sure to inspire with it’s bright and welcome feel! There is so many beautiful homes dressed for summer and tons of inspiration to go around. I hope you have a lovely summer friends. Happy decorating!
