Hey all! Today I’m sharing a little updated summer home tour, along with 23 other fab bloggers, since you know, I change things around about every 5 minutes. True story. There are actually a few things in these photos that have been swapped in the 3 days since I shot them…I know it’s a problem…
Pardon our dust, we under construction at the moment, but I’ll get more to that later, just ignore our lovely building permit stuck in the window…and focus on my pretty window boxes instead :)
Keeping it real over here, or just real lazy because I totally didn’t notice the sign in there when I was shooting these photos.
We’ll start in the front entry where I display my collection/obsession of old oars.
You’ll notice a new rug in the kitchen and a few brighter blue accessories for summer.
I love having a big basket of fresh fruits and veggies out on the counter all summer to trick my kids into grabbing healthy snacks, bonus – they look pretty too.
Please make special note of the mint and basil plants that I have successfully kept alive for 1 whole month, pretty much a new world record for me.
I just debuted my new living room paint color and tile this week so if you missed that post you can check it out here for more details.
I updated my bookshelves with a some navy spray painted accessories and this cute $3 old tackle box I found at a vintage store.
I’m really loving having more color in here, especially for summer!
If you hang out here often, you will notice my beloved plate wall is gone! The Mr. actually hated it, like hated it!? So weird right? He puts up with a lot of crazy from me, I mean I have a pair of skis hanging on my wall and he doesn’t say a word, but for some reason the plates drove him nuts. So, because I love him dearly I took them down and filled in the 2 million nail holes in my wall. I actually love the old windows hanging here anyways.
I’m currently working on my master bedroom redo and you can check out more details of that ongoing project here.
My daughter’s room also got a new bright and summery makeover recently and I kind of think it’s my fave room in the house.
I’ll end the tour by swinging back outside to our current messy construction project I mentioned…
It used to look like this…
but now it looks like this…
in anticipation of our new sunroom!! Can’t wait to have this finished up, I’m dreaming of curling up in there with a good book already, but in the meantime I’ll just enjoy the view and ignore the mess…which is typically how I roll :)
