Hi and happy Wednesday! Today I’m excited to be joining a fun summer home tour hosted by the fabulous Krista of The Happy Housie. If you’re coming here from my friend Jamie’s, welcome! She just released a gorgeous French decor book, which I wrote all about it in this post. And you can check it out here!
As I shared in my living room tour a couple of weeks ago, summer has a special place in my heart. That feeling of less responsibility, long hours of daylight, and lazy afternoons takes me back to my childhood and simpler times. And Krista’s Seasonal Simplicity Summer tour is a celebration of just that, which I love!
Summer is simply too hot and too fun to be worrying too much about decorating! But you can celebrate the season beautifully. Whether it’s bringing in some bright colors, setting out some fresh flowers, or simply changing slipcovers, there are ways to bring in seasonal beauty without too much fuss. I’m all about keeping things simple and enjoying the season. And for me, that means spending more time with my family now that the kids are home more often!
So grab an iced tea (or coffee), and come on into my summer kitchen tour….
Blue is my color of choice this summer. It really conveys that summery feeling to me, and I love how crisp and fresh it feels!
If you are a regular reader, then this area probably looks slightly different than when you last saw it! I’ve changed out the previous table to this “new to me” antique table. And I love the change so much! Soon I’ll be doing a whole post on where I got the antique farmhouse table, but the chairs were an easy find at World Market.
Some simple fresh flowers on the table freshen up the whole space.
Here’s a peek from the kitchen into the dining room, which has also had some blue accessories added!
I brought a lot of blue into the living and dining rooms for summer, so I wanted to continue that look in here to keep it cohesive.
I recently bought this French enamelware pitcher. After seeing it at a local antique store for over $200 (and falling hopelessly in love but not wanting to pay that much!) I found it on Etsy. This adorable reproduction is even more reasonable!
I’m usually a white hydrangea kind of girl, but with all my blue accents, I decided to add some faded blue hydrangeas to the kitchen instead. These cute blue and white plates and bowls also bring a little summer to the kitchen!
Thank you so much for taking my summer kitchen tour! I hope you’ll go on to visit Norma at Paint me Pink, and then onto the other eight bloggers sharing today. And don’t forget to check out some of the other days as well – there are over 30 bloggers sharing their seasonal simplicity this week!
