Welcome, y’all, and happy summer!
I’m so glad you’re here! If you’re popping over from The Pennington Point, welcome! It is truly starting to feel like summer here in South Carolina. The days are in the 90′s, the fireflies are out, and I have three days and counting left in the school year. Full-time blogging comes in just a few days! I cannot wait and I’ve had summer on the brain for a while.
So, when Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage asked me to join her Summer Tour of Homes, I was thrilled to infuse a little summer indoors.
You can read about my inspiration for this tour here. I had the best time infusing some summer into our spaces and brightening things up.
My husband and I bought this house a little over a year ago and have done major renovations. We moved walls, added a master suite, moved the kitchen into the bigger garage, and made things a bit pretty. Check out Our Renovation Story and the Before & Afters to see what we’ve been up to. Our home isn’t perfect and to be honest, it only looks like the pictures when I’m taking the pictures. Busy life with a Great Dane means things aren’t always perfect, but I sure do love celebrating style.
This blog is based on the belief that we each have a unique style that’s all our own. I hope to help you find it by embracing mine, sharing my style journey, and flying my style freak flag! To learn a bit more about my boho modern style, check out my About page.
Alright, now that you have a little basis for me and my style, onto the tour!
Our white kitchen is my favorite room in our house.
The bright white and pops of color feel so summery to me. The live edge island is one of my favorite projects we’ve done. And I love the open shelves that are always ready to style.
While I have a major love affair with white walls, I lean heavily towards cozy texture and dark accents layered on top. My goal for summer was to brighten.
We installed built-ins across from the couch and I love having the display space for all of our books and some pretties.
The dining room got some major changes for the season.
I got rid of the dark, kilim rug…just for now. I changed out the mix of chairs for all white. And I threw a little tie dye onto the table with an impromptu tablecloth.
Yes, those are the curtains from my office.
I had planned to dip-dye a tablecloth just to change things up a bit in here, but at the last minute was craving a tie-dye pattern. I threw the curtains on it just to try it out and I actually loved it! They’ll be going back to the office and I’ll make an official tablecloth, but for now, you can’t get more re-purposing than that!
I love our little front room, deemed “The Lounge.”
It’s right inside the front door, has a fireplace to style, and has tons of natural light! I have been on a huge tie-dye kick lately. The office curtains, a table runner for outside, and now these new pillows. I think I’ve finally perfected my tie-dye tutorial and will be sharing tomorrow!
The light in this room made it the perfect place for a little indoor garden.
Nothing says summer like bringing lots of green inside!
We just recently finished our master bedroom.
It’s bright and cheery and has the perfect blend of our styles.
And the most summery place of all at our house just happens to be my favorite.
Since we got married, we’ve dreamed of having a pretty outdoor space to enjoy and entertain. We had the best time putting this patio together this spring!
We’ve got space to lounge, eat, and entertain!
Thank you for touring my home! I’m so glad you stopped by to say hello. We have several more big projects left to finish on this house. We’ll be tackling the front exterior, the guest bathroom, and guest bedroom this summer! Check back in for some more room reveals!
Make sure you check out the next stop on the tour, Southern Hospitality. I know Rhoda will have some amazing inspiration for you!
