Good morning friends!
Today I am so excited to be a part of the second Summer Celebration Party. This is my first year joining and am thrilled to be involved alongside so many talented bloggers! If you came here from one of the other blogs – Welcome! I am so happy to have you here for my summer tour & hope you will stay a while. 🙂
I thought the Summer Celebration would be a perfect opportunity to share my summer house tour. It’s not exactly a house tour – as many of my rooms in the house are still a work in progress – but more so a tour of the rooms I added a bit of ‘summer’ to. 🙂
As some of you may already know, I love coastal design! So when it comes to decorating my home for the summer season, it doesn’t take adding a whole lot to get the summer feel. Just a few extra starfish here & there as well as more blue pops of blue and ocean inspired décor.
I’ll have links throughout the tour of different rooms if you would like to check out more photos & details of the different spaces.
We will start with the kitchen!
Our house is now for sale, so we took down our very-loved mason jar chandelier & created this light with pendants of similar colour. I’ll have a post all about it soon!
I recently spotted this sea turtle bell at Homesense & it just had to come home with me. Ring for coffee! (That’s me, housecoat clad in the reflection!)
For summer in the kitchen, I did a bit of rearranging, as well as adding some pops of colour with flowers. The tray above was switched out from my living room. I find the scale suits the island a lot better.
I rehomed the coffee maker to the other side of the counter, as well as moved all coffees, teas, and breakfast related items in the cabinet beneath to create a coffee nook. I love this set-up & already find it much more functional!
Onto the bathroom!
The weather was starting to warm up after we finished our small bathroom makeover, so I already had it decorated with a summery coastal style. Click on over to see the full reveal!
Next we will step into the foyer & see how I decorated our foyer table for the summer! I recently stained it, so be sure to check out my tutorial on what I used to achieve the weathered finish you see here. 🙂
This antique bread bowl is my mother’s, but she kindly allows me use it in my own home. For the summer season, I filled it with starfish. Surprise surprise!
I scooped up a couple of these rope door stops from Homesense last week! Although, I have to say I haven’t actually used them as door stops. I love how unique they are & the nautical feel they have!
A pretty wreath I made also hangs in the foyer. A nice cheerful pop of colour. 🙂
This room has had a few summery changes in the last while. It’s always refreshing to tweak your home for the seasons…
That’s the end of my summer tour! I hope next year I will hopefully have more rooms to share… but the process is all part of the fun, isn’t it?
I hope you are enjoying the summer celebration so far & all of the fantastic posts my talented bloggy friends are sharing. 🙂
