Today I’m sharing Part I of my summer home tour, and I’ll be back tomorrow with even more spaces to share with you! Today, I’ve teamed up with the lovely Marty at A Stroll Thru Life, along with a crazy talented group of ladies to bring you our tours. If you’re stopping in from Marty’s tour, welcome!
If you’re new here, I’m Sarah – an insurance executive by trade but a home decor enthusiast and blogger pretty much any remaining time I have! My husband and I moved into our home about three and a half years ago and have been updating things room by room and I feel like we’re really close to where we ultimately want things! We’re currently building our dream backyard along with a pool (you can read the latest on the project here), and my summer home decor was certainly inspired by the changes out back!
Welcome to our home!
This year, I went for an almost sun-bleached look with my favorite colors: blues, greens, neutrals and white. I am definitely loving the calming, beachy vibe these colors bring to the space. I’ve listed sources along the way, including paint colors.
Palm Tree Artwork (54″x40″ with the Whitewashed Herringbone frame – c/o Minted) | Wood Clovers (Small & Large) | Fig Leaf Pillows | Turquoise Geometric Pillows | Lamps | Striped Throws | Endless Summer Cook Book | Allegra Hicks Books | Habitat Book | Coffee Table | Glass Bottles | Glass Beads | Seagrass Tray (similar) | Paint Color: Behr Castle Path
The dining room stays fairly consistent from season to season, but I found some adorable square navy and white striped plates at HomeGoods recently that I had to dress up for summer!
Dining Table & Chairs | Chandelier | Round Antiqued Gold Mirror | Ocean Art (similar) | Bar Cart | Rug | Small Brass Pineapple Tumblers | Large Brass Pineapple Tumblers and Straws | Striped Throw | Wine Glass racks (similar) | Paint Color: Behr Silver Drop | Trim Color: Behr Swiss Coffee
The mud room is the first room we step into from the garage when we get home from work each night and it’s the last space we see when we leave each morning. Therefore, even though the space is still unfinished, I like to add a little character to make it feel a bit more polished. I found these navy and white palm prints at HomeGoods over the weekend and I’m loving the blue they bring into the space!
Chandelier | Fig Leaf Pillow | Blue and White Lumbar Pillow (HomeGoods recent) | Striped Throw (similar) | Palm Prints (similar) | LV Tote | Paint Color: Behr Dolphin Fin at 50% | Shiplap and Shelf color: Kilz Primer 😉
Our courtyard was one of the areas where I decided to take things quite a bit more saturated since it’s outdoors, but you can see I still stuck with the same overall color scheme.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my tour so far! Stop back tomorrow Part II of my Summer Home Tour series, along with a post about my five favorite fabrics. For the home tour, I’ll be sharing a few duplicate photos, but for the most part, I’ll be sharing all new spaces in our home!
