SUMMER HOME REFRESH


Summer is my favorite time of year. I love the long sunny days and the warmth of the sun on my skin. Whats not to love really?


Today I'm sharing my home all ready for summer. I love to use light neutrals to add some pops of color. Blue and green are a few of my favorites.


Botanical prints are a great way to bring the outdoors in. These wood framed prints are from @HobbyLobby. They can be paired with any other colors. I like to stack my pictures for a gallery feel.


A few months ago I added some board and batten to our corner fireplace. I also built a wood mantle to add some warmth to the firelplace.


I love trimming some green stems from my yard to add some neutral colors to my home, plus they are free!


I get asked a lot what my wall colors are. They are Benjamin Moore, Revere Pewter. This is one of my favorite paint colors. it is a really pretty greige that goes in just about any room.


I recently did my first Ikea hack. This 3 drawer dresser got some new molding added and a coat of grey/blue chalk paint. I love how it turned out! Ill be sharing more about it in the next few weeks.






Adding some simple touches of green really helps it feel like summer inside.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again!

SUMMER INSPIRED TABLESCAPE


Hello and welcome to my Summer Tablescape tour!

Are you as ready for summer as I am?
We have been having rain and cooler temps for weeks and I'm itching to get outside an play in the sunshine.
But until we have summer weather I'll just be over her in my own world playing like its summer inside.


I LOVE lilacs! Every Spring I anxiously await for them to bloom. Lucky for me mine just bloomed so I was able to use them on my tablescape this  week


Dont be fooled, I have bunches of these beauties all over my home. They are so pretty and smell so darn good. I cant help myself.


I even put some up one my DIY open shelving. Don't they look lovey in my white vases!


I kept my table pretty simple. I started with the basics. Woods and whites. Then I layered on my plates and bowls, then these pretty Hearth and Hand linen napkins. 





I don't usually use purple in my home but these lilacs are just so beautiful







 I love using clippings from my own yard. The lilacs bushes that I have in my yard are from my parents house and they are special to me. They moved last summer so we really miss them and their amazing yard.

I think of them each year I cut my lilacs.

PICTURE GALLERY WALL

I've been wanting to do a picture gallery wall in my home for years and I finally finished one and I absolutely love it!   


 The frames range in size from 12x15 and 15x19 with all the pictures size 8x11. 


After I decided what frames I was going to use I layed them all out on my family room floor in the pattern that I wanted. I also measured the spacing between each frame. 

I measured my wall and found the middle an placed my top middle frame. then worked my way down from there. I still have a few more frames to put us as I get more fun pictures from trips and important events and I'll work my way down the stairs.

I hung all the frames with  large command strips. 


I also added this darling wood sign from @Rodworks one of my all time favorite home decor stores. They have the most amazing employees, they are super helpful and so fun to work with. I always find something perfect for my home and style.
This sign is the perfect piece to pull everything together!


I love walking down my stairs and looking at all the fun memories we have made over the years. Sometimes I find myself tearing up with gratitude for my sweet little family. They are getting so big I want to hold on to these memories as long as I can.

A LITTLE BEDROOM REFRESH


Hello!
I am so glad you stopped by today! Last month I got the itch to paint the wall behind my bed something other than Revere Pewter. I know, I know it's a great neutral color but I wanted something different. so after many trips to the paint store I finally found one I loved. It's called Stonington gray by Benjamin Moore. This paint color goes perfectly with my farmhouse pillows from Beddys

I had my paint lightened about 50%. 
This color is fun because it changes throughout the day in the morning its really light and it gets darker as the day goes on.


Another new addition to my bedroom is this gorgeous Juju hat from Surface Abroad! Isn't it amazing! When I pulled it out of the box,  I was amazed at how beautiful and well made it is. I'm not kidding when I saw this is my new favorite decor item!


Juju hats are the new hot thing right now in the decor world and can be used anywhere in the home. I just knew I wanted one over my bed.


Juju hats made of different bird feathers are worn as headdresses by royal families and chiefs of Cameroon's Bamilike, Tikar and Babanki tribes. They represent a birds ability to touch the heavens. isn't that a beautiful thought.


Africa has a special place in my heart because my In-laws served a mission there for 18 months for the Church of Jesus Christ of latter Day Saints. They had such an amazing experience there and sacrificed so much to help and serve the African people. I like to think of them when I see this Juju hat above my bed. 


Be sure to go to Surface Abroad and see all the amazing Juju hats they have. They come in all different sizes and colors. 

Mine Juju hat is the 20-22 inche size in the Cream/Ivory. The feathers are so soft and textured. These Juju hats are the best quality I've ever seen and I've looked around a lot. 

It comes with a little hook in the back so all you have to do it pull it out of the box, push open the hat and hang it up. I love the texture it give the space. It's simple but makes a big statement! I'm so happy with it!

FARMHOUSE LAUNDRY ROOM


I am so excited to be finally sharing my laundry room with you!
On Black Friday of last year I purchased this beautiful wallpaper from Anthropology. It was on back order until the end of January. I received it the first of February and it sat in my closet for another 3 weeks. until I was brave enough to start and after many, many you tube videos....

Here she is......


I had never installed wallpaper before and I was so nervous. 
But I took the plunge and I love how it turned out! Even my husband and kids liked it!


The whole process was easier than I thought. Before my walls were just a plain greige color, but I wanted my laundry room to have some character and this wallpaper added that fun whimsical feel to the space!


I spend a lot of time in my laundry room. I have 6 people in  my family and we go thru a lot of clothing. I wanted to make this a fun, bright and happy space for me while I do laundry.



I added this wood shelf a few years ago to hold my soaps and dryer sheets. It's nice to have them right there handy and for easy access.



I really love my new light from Olde Brick Lighting on Esty. 

mine is called the Clear Glass Dome Shade Flush mount fixture. I really liked the milk glass shade too but my husband liked this clear glass the most so I gave into his way.....this time!


Isn't this wallpaper amazing! Every time I go into my laundry room it makes me smile.



I love the faux plants and wicker pots from Ikea. there is no window or natural light in this space so I have to use fauw plants.




I kept some coat hooks high and some low for my little girl who needs them for her backpack and jackets.






I wanted to add some warmth to this little bench/shoes storage from Ikea so I cut and stained a wood board to go on top with some of my favorite farmhouse pillows from @Beddys


I added new coat hooks from Target in Polished nickel.



Next on my list for this room is some new flooring, but that might have to wait a few years....
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.
xoxo,
