I can’t believe it’s already the end of August–these summer months have just flown by. We’ve packed in a lot of fun with family and friends, and it’s going to be so hard to say goodbye to late summer nights and all the freedom we’ve had. I also love summer for decorating…because it’s so simple and easy. Fresh flowers and greenery are my summer decor staple, and most of the time I’m using things from my own yard, which I love. It’s simple but lovely, and my favorite. I thought it would fun to be give you a peek into our house for a little summer home tour….here’s summer at Old Salt Farm! Welcome!
WELCOME TO MY HOME…SUMMER HOME TOUR
I kept my summer front porch simple—that’s just the way I like it. Crisp white rockers, blue gingham, vintage buckets, white flowers, and an American flag…perfection.
Since we live in the woods, there is no shortage of greenery, and I utilize that all through the summer. My kids are getting really good at cutting the perfect stems for me! It’s amazing what a little greenery in a white vase will do for a room…I love it.
Fresh flowers are another simple way to add a pop of summer color to your space, and every week at our local grocery store I’d pick up a different bunch.
When I find really great faux flowers, I grab them up, because I love being able to use them all year round, or save them until that same season the next year. I came across these gorgeous white flowers at a local boutique, and I adore them in my family room all through the summer. I added a few flags in the pitcher to celebrate the 4th of July, and it was simple & patriotic.
I bought new bedding for our master bedroom at the beginning of the summer, and I’m in LOVE. This room is always white, but I use greenery on the nightstands during the summer for a summer feel.
I found this adorable wreath at Target a couple of months ago, and I love it for spring and summer.
We are at the library a lot during the summer, and our goal this summer is actually to visit all the libraries in our county! We don’t need our lockers for backpacks right now, but it’s a great place to keep my kids’ library books.
I keep moving things around in the music room. I’m planning built-in bookshelves (hopefully a winter project this year), and I think I just keep rethinking the rest of the space. But it’s light and bright, and I love that!
We had a flood in our basement last fall, and most of my books were ruined. They were in storage until the shelves were built. I’m slowly starting to add to my collection again, but it such a sad moment for me. Just these few remain, of which I’m grateful! And my children’s book were safe upstairs, thankfully.
Thanks for joining me on my summer home tour! Happy Summer!
