I love neutrals, all day everyday, and the softer the palette the better. That said, when Summer finally rolls around, I tend to crave a little color, and its so refreshing, adding in a few pops, the kind of color that lifts your spirits and makes you feel happy inside, then I shift, into low gear, and just enjoy that Summer vibe of taking it easy, I mean, minus the 247,00 small projects I have on my mind. I am all about that Beach Life, and I’m only two hours away from the beach. It’s the mentality I love so much, laid back, sipping lemonade, feet up, and sitting on the porch, with a magazine in hand, and a candle burning. I have even been known to take a few naps out there. Inside I want things open, casual, and with a few pops of fresh color.
I added a new carpet in the main living area, its very thin, and feels more like a floor cloth to me. I found it at Rugs USA I have to say I love how very thin and very gorgeous, and very inexpensive, it was. I never realized that I lifted my feet ever so slightly, when I stepped onto the carpets in this room, until I added this one. It is so flat that you don’t feel a difference when you go from the hardwood to the carpet, and I love that. It is the perfect feel, for the Summer Season.
I like to keep things simple, I packed away some decor, for a sparse feel. Next, I dug out all my shells, I have tons. This year I used some of them, around one of the most special candles I have ever received from, HillHouseNaturalsFarms Its so dreamy, comes in a wicker covered glass jar, and smells amazing. Do you burn candles in the Summer? And then my absolute favorite Tray/Bowl I am in #crazylove with it. You can find it over at 2540LoveandCo
I added the most beautiful Print on Canvas from one of my favorite artists, Maren Devine Art. I adore the joy her work brings to my home, and all the beautiful, happy colors. If you gaze up the staircase, you can see four prints from the same artist, I have framed. These were one of those things, I hung here, well over a year ago, after moving them all around the house, and just knew, this was where they were meant to be. I absolutely love how they look from below.
Trying to decide between the petite bowl of shells or the glass??? does this happen to you?
I need to do something about this old doorbell. Oh my.
Check out this sign from @2540loveandco isn’t it dreamy.
I am always on the hunt for the perfect pillow, why, because they make me happy. And if you don’t know Jolie Marche, you need to. I honestly think her designs, are the most beautiful pillows, I have found. Just look at my newest addition.
When I got the new console for the entry, I removed the bench inside the door and shifted this table over a little to open up the space. I am enjoying the open feel.
That’s it, a few pops of color, some soft blues in the form of pillows, and its easy breezy, time for Summer. What’s next, lets lay on the porch and plan for Fall decorating, oh my!
Enjoy your Summer
