I’m SO excited!!! Summer is almost here. We had a pretty harsh winter for Virginia Beach. Then it seemed like we just skipped past spring and it went straight to 90 degree weather. I’m not complaining though. I’m not a fan of cold weather. Summer house tours are literally one of my favorite posts. I love reading other blogs that showcase their homes this time of year. Kids are getting out of school and everyone is in a party mood.
Hey, If you’re new to my blog I’m so glad you stopped by. Here are a couple posts to get to know me better; (10 Facts About the Person Behind the Blog, 25 Things About Me, and My Easy to Follow Nighttime Routine). Now let’s start the summer tour.
Those of you who have been around a while know I’m a big fan of black and white decor. However, for the summer I do like to throw a little color in there.
This animal print ottoman came from One King’s Lane. It was exactly what I was looking for. It took me a while to find it, but when I saw it, I knew it was just what I was looking for. You can find similar animal hide ottomans here, here and here.
This solid blue rug came from Pottery Barn. I thought it pulled the room together with the pillows as well.
These glam velvet couches came from Joss and Main.
I love this aerial view from the hallway upstairs. You can really see how beautiful the furniture is and how the pieces compliment each other. I love having this 2 story ceiling in the family room.
The gorgeous chairs were a splurge from Neiman Marcus. I love to get a splurge piece that I call “the guest of honor.” Then I get functional pieces that are more reasonable to compliment and make the splurge piece really shine.
The next part of the summer house tour will be on Wednesday. I will finish up with a hallway display and my tablescape. I would love to know what your color scheme is for the summer. Leave a comment below telling me your summer decor plans.
