Our Summer Home Tour 2016


Happy Summer Friends!
Welcome if you're stopping by from Christy's lovely tour at  Our Southern Home, also
 a huge thank you to sweet Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life for putting together the fun tours!

If you're new here I share our 1938 cottage style home in Denver with
 Mr. Simple, our teenage son, and our spoiled fur babies! Come on in and I'll show you
what I've been up to getting our home spiffed up for summer.


Since I changed things up for my Spring Home Tour at the end of March, and I was
still loving all my new blue pillows...are you sitting down....I wanted to keep them
 through summer! Crazy, I know! Haha!
Don't worry, I made some other changes to go with them!

Living Room


This striped chair is my newest Craigslist find...are you still sitting down...$50! 
Despite my overflowing collection of chairs it was too fun to pass up!  


If you've forgotten here are my old blue pillows :) and a pair of bamboo chairs
from my stash in the basement. I like the airy summer vibe.   






Dining Room 


Much to my surprise, I've grown fond of the lively green walls in our dining room.
It feels fresh for summer, and a little daring.  My friend and I found a pair of huge
brass lamps at an antique store one day and shared them. My sweet client gave me a
foo dog for my collection (of two, so far).


Family Room


I added the large canvas abstract to the family room to tie in with the blues
throughout. I tried my hand at a DIY, it looks nothing like what I was going for, but
 I'm happy with it after a lot of tweaking.

Kitchen


My favorite update is new slipcovers I made for my barstools. I thought taking the old
ones apart and copying the pattern would be a no-brainer. Sewing them back together
 put my skills to the test, but I love them now that I'm finished!




Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my tour friends! 
I'll be sharing our outdoor spaces soon, with some new Craigslist finds.  
Up next on the tour is Laura @ Decor to Adore, be sure to stop by and visit.

Wow! Beautiful!!! Thank you for the inspiring home tour!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

You've been a busy bee, I love all of your little changes. Yes that striped chair IS too fun, no way you could have passed that up. Forget CL, I'm shopping your basement when I come! ;) I love the elephant dish on your dining table, too, what a perfect centerpiece! I once saw a similar peacock bowl at HG and have been sorry ever since that I didn't get it. Fun tour, Pam!

Barbara @ 21 Rosemary Lane said...

What a beautiful home Pam and I absolutely love the exterior of your house. Someday I want a house from the early 20th century with all of its wonderful charm. You have it decorated so beautifully...what a special place to call home!

Your home is just stunning. I love your slipcovered chairs! I do a fair bit of sewing but that looks intimidating to me. Love your green dining room as well. I'm in such a green phase right now. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!

Michele @ Moonfield Lane said...

Oh, your house is beautiful! And I love flowers in a front yard. The striped chair is an awesome find but I am really loving those bamboo caned chairs! Are those a Craig's List find, too?

Cynthia@Ornamental Style said...

Your yard is gorgeous! Love the change with the new kitchen slipcovers. Do you mind sharing the name of the two fabrics you used? I'm finally going to redecorate and am thinking of using something with shades of blues. Thank you.

$50 - are you kidding me? I LOVE your CL chair!! Also loving your new kitchen chair slipcovers - a perfect addition for summer! I always love seeing your home change with the seasons!

Brandi said...

Such a great price on your chair. You find the best CraigsList deals. I love that your home is full of plants and flowers. Every detail is just beautiful, Pam!!

Stacy Curran said...

Pam after so much time since visiting last, I am so so grateful I had time to stock your blog tonight and come to this post. I read so many of your posts, but wanted to comment on this one because it's amazing. I love your little collection of foo dogs so much that I'm inspired to start my own. I also have used your work as a source of inspiration and learning for years. You are so amazingly talented and the best do-it-yourselfer around. I especially love your kitchen chairs with the contrasting fabric – they're brilliant. I also really admired your Sunburst light made from a mirror, and you're doing it yourself spotted dining room shades. Everything you do is perfect and I'm so glad to be able to come here for inspiration and guidance!
