Summer Decorating – Summer Home Tour Part 1

Hey friends! It’s home tour day, part one of my summer home tour! Home tours are such a fun part of blogging. As a reader, it’s a great way to get summer decorating ideas. If you’ve ever wanted to take a peek around some of your favorite bloggers’ homes, today [this whole week actually] is your day! The lovely Marty from A Stroll Thru Life coordinates this tour for us each season and it’s wonderful to be a part of. If you are hopping over from Driven By Decor, then you are probably still blown away by Kris’s decor. She always leaves me with all the heart eyes. I’m glad you are here. Summer Decorating Ideas - A Home Tour

I love summer! It’s heating up here in Florida and it’s been feeling like summer for some time now. We are currently thankful for neighbors with pools and all of the popsicles that are overflowing from our freezer.

Our entryway is a great drop zone for us. We built this organizer last summer as a West Elm knock off. It’s still one of my favorites.

Do you have go to summer decorating ideas? I love changing up the decor in here as the seasons change. I usually switch out things like throw pillows, and blankets, bring in seasonal flowers and even try out new rugs.

Striped Pillow 

This is the first time I didn’t get a chance to make some new throw pillows before the tour since I’ve been busy finishing up the master bedroom makeover (oh and I have two wild littles – that’s a solid excuse, right?). Decorating for Summer - A Home Tour

I stuck with my ever faithful mix of navy blue and white. It’s timeless in my eyes but it definitely pops in the summer giving that coastal vibe.Decorating for Summer - A Home Tour

The large [huge] chalkboard was a DIY I made for one of our old houses (we move a lot) to hid an ugly cut out that I didn’t like. It’s served us well in every house since then.
