Summer Home Tour

June 30, 2016

Happy Thursday friends! I can’t believe summer is already here. Summers always seem to be a little crazy. I tend to be more of a fall kinda girl but summer can to be a breath of fresh air in our home. Maybe it’s the unbearable southern heat but I seem to rest the most and refresh during the summer months. I like to keep the house light and airy. Summer touches are easy to add and don’t have to break the bank! I’m so excited to be kicking off the weekend with my summer home tour along some other home bloggers and our sweet host Meg from Green with Decor.

Lets getting started!

Welcome to our summer home-











I’ve been making small updates and changes to our breakfast nook he last couple of months. I can’t wait share all of those details on the blog very soon!







We recently wrapped our dining room makeover a couple weeks ago. You can see the drastic before and after here.



You can find the master bedroom makeover and reveal here. This was the first One Room Challenge that I participated in and I’m so pleased with how it turned out.




Thanks for taking the tour with me! I hope you’ll check out all the other wonderful blogger’s home tours below. So much summer inspiration to add to you home this season. Have a great weekend friends!




So many great summer decorating ideas in these summer home tours from 20+ bloggers!

    Your house is so pretty!! I love the copper pots above the chalkboard, and “today is a good day for a good day” is one of my favorite sayings! I love your headboard, too!

      Thank you so much Meg! I have an addiction to copper pots. I need a second shelf to display the rest of them. Thank you again for letting me join you all!
