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!
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.
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).
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.
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.
