Hello friends! Are you in summer mode? For some reason it took me a while to get there, but this weekend I officially dove in to the summer feeling! This weekend included a trip to the farmer's market, antiquing, laying poolside, enjoying the local ice cream parlor and grilling out. If that isn't summer to a tee, I don't know what is! That also inspired some changes to my decor. I have hardly touched my living room (or much other decor) since after Christmas just because life has been so full, so it felt good to finally add some new touches and a fresh look.
I was feeling the greens, blues and aquas of summer, and tried to add pops of color throughout the room.
The main hits of color came on the fireplace shelves, where I mixed aqua canning jars, green books, a landscape and wicker for that summertime feel.
The side table hasn't changed much since the last time I shared it. I'm still loving the trophies, French leaded glass window and large finial, which were all finds the last time I went to Bottoms Up Antiques in KC. I get to go back in July and I can hardly wait!
At the farmer's market this weekend I picked up a bunch of gorgeous white peonies. Other than hydrangeas, these are my very favorite flower. They smell heavenly and are still unfolding to their full size.
I absolutely love architectural salvage and this corbel has such a great design. The vintage botanical print was one of several I picked up at the flea several months ago for $1 each.
This is my favorite shot. I love all the colors, shapes and textures going on. The little blue and green painting was a gift from my papa, who is a fine art painter. It's one of my most treasured possessions.
I recently picked up this wicker tray and the candle at my favorite local boutique. I love the woven container of the candle and it smells delicious (it's the Farmhouse scent from Park Hill Collection).
My beloved trophies : )
Even some of my favorite decor books added to the blue and green theme.
I just could not get enough photos of the peonies and wicker!
It just goes to show that you can change the look of an entire room with just a few accessories and pops of color. Welcome, summer!
