Hello friends, I hope you’ve had a great week so far. Yesterday was the first day of summer and what better way to welcome summer than with a little tour.
I do have to admit that I have been feeling a little blah lately and trying to stay motivated has been a little difficult. I’m not sure if it’s all the rain and the gloomy weather so I am welcoming summer with wide open arms.
I moved things around again and as usual, I’m not sure how long it will stay this way but here is what our living room looks for now…
As usual, I stuck to my blues, whites and greens…
But I’ve also added a few brighter touches of pink. This fun pillow is in my shop and it makes me smile because it’s whimsical and unexpected.
And of course, I’ve been enjoying gorgeous peonies. Some from our own garden and the bright ones from the grocery store.
They make me so happy…:)
If you follow me on INSTAGRAM, then you might have seen this new sideboard I got from a sample sale. It was only $100 and it’s perfect for this space.
Nothing much has changed in the dining room, but I’m itching for some new chair covers, these are almost 9 years old and I’ve washed them so much that they’re looking sad.
I also changed the family room a bit and brought our blue rug and wooden table. I think it looks much better in person, but it doesn’t translate very well in photos…
Speaking of photos, I’ve been feeling like my photography has regressed or I’ve peeked and it’s really frustrating me and making me feeling discouraged.
I guess it’s just a matter of researching or really learning my camera. I’m not sure.
I’ve always been so glad that our home has so much light but at the same time, it makes it so difficult to photograph.
The way the rug glows makes me smile…ha.
It matches the gorgeous peonies perfectly.
Here are a few more photos of the family room.
I painted two of these a couple of weeks ago, you can find prints of it HERE.
I have also been working on some fun painting techniques lately and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you. Here is a little sneak peek..
So fun right? The bigger painting is acrylic and the smaller one is acrylic with translucent medium and it has a gorgeous texture. But I will share all the details with you next week.
In the meantime, I want to thank my friend Nina for hosting this blog hop.
Please don’t forget to visit the rest of the beautiful homes participating and THANK YOU for stopping by today.
I appreciate you more than you know…xo
