Are you ready for summer entertaining? To me, this time of year always seems simpler and just a little more relaxed than any other season. There is just something about lingering after a dinner party on the patio on a summer evening, don’t you think?
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!
I have something special to share with you today, and for all of you fellow Francophiles, I think this will be a fun post for you! As you know, I love French Country/French Vintage style more than anything! Well, a good blogging friend of mine named Jamie, who writes the blog So Much Better with Age, has a very similar aesthetic. Jamie lives in Canada and shares her amazing style on her blog. I found her a few years ago and fell in love with her home and her taste! Then I got a chance to meet her a couple of years ago at the Haven blogging conference, and lucky for me, she was as sweet as she is talented. Cut to now and she is releasing a French decor book! A book, people! This is a blogger’s dream (or, at least this blogger’s dream!)
Today I’m excited to share my French Country summer home tour with you! In fact, I’m just excited about summer in general. I know when August comes and it’s blazing hot, I may regret wishing for it, but I can’t help myself.
Ever since I was a kid, there has just been something special about summer to me. Swimming on a hot day. Backyard BBQs. Pool parties. Warm nights spent outside. Sandy toes and salty hair. The long, lazy days of summer remind me of a younger, simpler time, and I treasure them when they’re here.
I’m so excited to be sharing my first summer tablescape of the season with you! I always love doing tables, and I have to say it felt so nice to be doing one again – I’ve been missing it!
If you’re coming here from Annie at Zevy Joy, welcome! Today I’m joining some other bloggers for my friend Lory at Designthusiasm‘s Styled + Set Entertaining Blog Tour so be sure to scroll to the end of the post to see all the gorgeous summer entertaining inspiration!
Well, this is it! After six weeks of planning, ordering, running around, set-backs, and a last minute flurry of activity, I’m finally revealing my French-inspired Home Office Makeover! This was my very first One Room Challenge, and I’m so thankful to Linda of Calling it Home for creating this event where designers and bloggers have a chance to design a room from start to finish. And I have to say – I’m hooked!
