Welcome to the Summer Tour of Homes! I’m really excited about the line up this year, I’ve coaxed 24 amazing bloggers to join me in sharing their homes, so I really hope you enjoy the tour! So let’s kick things off with my own humble abode…
My living room is changing pretty rapidly these days. So much, in fact that I haven’t even had a chance to share many of the tutorials, but they’ll be starting next week so make sure to stay tuned (it’s easy to keep up by subscribing to daily emails in the top of the sidebar)
One of the most recent additions to our space is this trio of new stools from Target for a little bench style action with some fun printables above.
Even our faux fireplace got a fresh coat of paint.
For the most part, summer is all about kicking back, spending as much time as I possibly can with my kiddos and just enjoying the lazy days.
Our porch gets a lot of action in the summer, from kids to family and friends popping by, there’s almost always someone hanging out here.
Our small deck on the end of our house is just now getting some real use. New Target chairs and an umbrella makes it much easier to spend time out here.
And we just installed an outdoor bar here, so it’s a new love of ours to whip up a pitcher of cocktails and hang out with drinks on the decks to wind down at the end of a long day.
Since the tour last summer, we’ve given a couple of spaces a makeover, including our master bedroom. Even though it was “finished” last September, there’s already been a few minor changes to the original space.
There’s just something about moving furniture from one room to another that makes you feel like you get new spaces without spending a dime (that’s the best kinda makeovers, ya know?)
Our kitchen recently got a makeover, too! The new brighter colors and bolder accessories are so much more my style.
Every inch of our home has to be practical, easy to care for, and most of all, done specifically to my weird tastes. I always have a hard time finding stuff I like to buy, so I just make it instead. Don’t get me wrong, I love to shop, but I really have issues with finding stuff I can’t live without (which is what I look for when buying stuff.)
So I hope you enjoy the summer tour! There’s a few more spaces I didn’t share, but you can find links to the individual tours in the bottom of my sidebar.
Now let’s get on with the tour….. In the rest of today’s tour you can enjoy:
Vanessa’s home from At The Picket Fence - doesn’t it just make you sigh with happiness?
Karianne’s beautiful abode at Thistlewood Farms. Talk about drool worthy!!!
