When I think of the colors of Summer, brown and black aren’t necessarily the first ones that come to mind. But I’ve noticed that more and more neutrals seem to be creeping into our home, specifically the living room and office, and somehow, it all feels lighter and more summery.
Today, I’m joining some other blogger friends for a “tour of homes.” We’re all sharing how we’ve added touches of Summer based around a different color scheme. (Welcome to those of you who are visiting my blog from Four Generations One Roof!)
The thing I love most about Summer decorating is how little “decorating” it actually requires. A few pieces with great texture (I added new pillows) and some fresh flowers or green branches can make a room feel alive again.
This DIY art really kicked off the changes in our living room. (I kept the rest of our mantel simple with driftwood and candlesticks.) I layered the striped rug over our existing jute one and love the change for Summer.
More texture on the coffee table with a small grouping on a rattan tray. (You can find more of my coffee table decorating tips here.)
(“The lazy mom’s photo album.” I do actually love having bowls full of printed pictures.)
Notice I brought the brass and blue lamp in from our porch. It’s visiting here for a while. . .
I wish I could tell you I found the coral on a tropical vacation. I bought it at a consignment store, but it’s the perfect Summer accessory. ;) The crazy wisteria from our backyard also comes in handy for a quick centerpiece:
And as much as I may think I’ve added neutrals, you know I’ll never quit the blue and white.
