Summer Updates at Home

I guess Summer is here to stay, I mean, with it being July and 100-degrees everyday! I am constantly changing things up at home, and today I thought I'd share a few switch-a-roos I made for Summer.

The coffee table decor is an easy way to update. By adding a tropical leaf and coral, I have instant Summer. The small pieces of coral were picked up on our trip to Yelapa, Mexico, and are striking against a dark bowl. The tray I found at Tuesday Morning for a steal. It has an 'T' monogrammed on it, but I just covered it up with books until I find the perfect fabric to line it (like I did here). The faux antler is Elle Decor for Kohls, on clearance!

I did some furniture shuffling too. The white club chair found a better home in the cozy Den (i.e. TV Room), and the cane barrel chair makes a better fit for the Living Room. I added the light throw until I decide on a fabric for new cushions. You starting to see a pattern here? The Living Room is next on my Hit List.

The side table decor was lightened up with a conch shell and silver bowl of sea glass.

It's hard to resist throw pillows, especially when they are on sale and in a favorite fabric! So the sofa has a new pop of color.

The console table now holds a collection of sand dollars found on our trip to Sanibel. (I think these lamps are on their way out, thanks to Lamp-A-Looza, Part 2!)

My focus may be turning to the Living Room, but that doesn't keep me from doing some changes in the Kitchen/Breakfast Room. I'm dying to paint the walls, and add some pops of a bright color. I'm trying out this pinky/red Calypso for Target tray. And I don't know what kind of plant this is, but I love it!

The backyard has already seen updates with a new fence, no-sew pillows and a DIY Convex Starburst Mirror. And now the 6-year-old Crate and Barrel tables benefited from a new coat of paint...this year in Aqua. I like how they tie in with the Weathered Back Door.

And if all this in-your-face beach decor didn't let on that it's Summer, the grating melody of the Ice Cream Truck sure does.

Did you spot our friend in the grass? No, that's not yard art, it's one of the bunnies born in our flower pot (we're assuming). Clearly he's not too spooked by us.

Stay tuned for my Living Room plans. What Summer changes have you made in your decor? Happy weekend!

  3. Great summer updates! I love seashells so much. I need to live at the beach! Could you please tell me about your sofa? It is *exactly* what I have been looking for. Love the pillows you got for it too. We have wild bunnies that hop across our backyard and sit near our patio. So cute! Thanks for sharing!

  9. I'm so boring...I think the only thing I've even *tried* to do (notice I said "tried" and not "did") is switch up some of the flowers in the house. Wow. That makes me sound so boring! I'm completely in love with the summer touches in the living room, especially since they are momentos from trips!

  14. Love the summer touches you added. New pillows are my favorite way to spruce things up! And seeing the ice cream truck brings back so many childhood memories. We have bunnies in our yard all the time haha...They eat our plants, though, so we don't like them!

  15. Love the summer touches! Maybe you should add some bunnies to your decor as well....just kidding, you know how they tend to multiply!

    I also loved seeing your Sanibel post. We went last June and came back with two rubbermaid tubs full of shells....hello lampshades...shell frames...and on and on! :)

  16. Can't wait to see the changes you make in your living room. I'm pretty sure the plant in your kitchen is a Cycad, they used to be food for dinosaurs back in the day.

  21. The plant in your kitchen is a ZZ Plant. We have one, too. They are survivors! Ours is on top of a tall bookcase and often gets overlooked.

  22. I like the new look for your rooms that you have added. Great work! The bunny is sure cute in your front yard, and there is nothing more exciting than hearing the ice cream truck. It reminds me of my childhood every time.

    Love that sofa!
