It’s officially SUMMMERRRRR!!!! Our last day of school was yesterday and we kicked it off with a neighborhood party. Even though the weather doesn’t feel like summer, our house is decorated for the season so that counts, right?! I didn’t get a chance to do a spring tour this year because I was preoccupied with the office reveal, kid’s bathroom and my son’s big boy room… but I’m ready to show you my Black and White Summer Decor!
It’s always fun to join a group of bloggers for a big home tour because it gives you a glimpse into so many different homes with completely different styles. This year’s summer tour is hosted by Nina Hendrick and you have to scroll down to see all the other homes.
I went with a more modern look for summer this year with accents of greenery. I guess you could say it even has a little bit of a boho or tropical look to it. That’s the thing I love about different seasons, is that it allows you to tweak your decor and play around with different styles.
I’ve shared bits and pieces of our summer home tour over the past few months, but here it is all in one post with lots of new spaces too! Here is our front porch all decorated with modern containers and lots of greenery. I even shared some tips on how I arrange my flowers here.
As you enter you have our entry way, that hasn’t changed all that much since I did it last year. I still love that sawhorse table and oversized mirrors, I just added a lit bit of greenery.
For our main living space, I have added even more black and white than ever before and I’m sorta on a kick. I want everyyyyything black and white in this space! I love the color combo, it’s classic and it can merge into so many different styles.
I realized this year that I have been using a lot of the same throw pillows for the past few years, so I allowed myself to purchase some new ones for summer. I traded most of the faux fur and knit pillows (which are great for fall and winter and even a little spring) for more linen and textured pillows. I found tons of great ones at Target this year!
A few years ago I was looking for a more industrial looking coffee table for this space and I came across this one for only $170!!!! It’s such a good deal. I will say the top will scratch if you put metal to metal, but it’s a great solution for a great price.
This awesome raw wood bowl also came from Target and I LOVE it. Can’t beat the clearance section!
I really love this view of our downstairs. The white cabinets really brighten up the space and it often seems surreal that this is really our home. I had dreamt of an all white kitchen for years and years and I can’t believe we have lived here for almost three years.
Since pineapples are all the rage this season, I wanted to add a little pineapple flare to my tour! I whipped up this pillow using my Silhouette Machine, a little paint and my sewing machine. You can get the full tutorial on the blog!
All the greenery around the house makes me so happy. I just love the pops throughout the house and the breath of fresh air they give each room.
Before I close the tour, I’ll take you outside real quick. I redid this space for spring, but decided to just keep the same decor through the summer. If it isn’t broken don’t fix it, right?!
It always feels good to get an update house tour up on the blog! So much chances around here (sometimes daily) and it’s nice to have it all captured in one place for you! Hope you all are enjoying your start to summer and these warm months ahead. Please visit the blogs below for more inspiration and beautiful tours!
